Cot sides for hospital bed
A young man with cerebral palsy was to be housed in a residential home. To enable him to be attended to, a height adjustable hospital bed was provided. As he is prone to violent movement, a strong secure cot was required to surround, but not be attached to, the bed.
A panel headboard & railed footboard were fitted between welded steel ‘rugby posts’. Hinged onto these are four metal cot side gates secured at their bases to the metal horizontals by barrel bolts and restrained at the top with wooden beams.
The members of staff at the home are confident the client is safe and secure and also that they can attend to his needs in bed.
