Bed Mounted Foot Support
This client’s posture is bent forward and this means his centre of gravity can incline him to fall forward. He normally sits on the side of his bed to get help with his personal care. It would be helpful if the bed could be raised to assist with the care but there was a risk he would fall forward if his feet were unsupported. Remap were asked if they could design a foot support that could attach to the bed and support him and to fold away when not in use.
Remap designed a suitable support which could be clamped to the centre section of the adjustable bed.
The client can now sit safely on the side of the bed which can be raised to a convenient height without the fear of him falling forward. The step folds away when not in use.
