Special bed leverThe client, an elderly lady, was having extreme difficulty getting in and out of bed. Conventional “side” bed levers could not be fitted because it was a lifting bed and there was no standard equipment to help her pull herself up when she got out of bed.

A standard side bed lever was modified so that it could be attached firmly to the bed. A special adjustable handle was made which was attached to the foot of the bed and positioned in such a way that she could reach it to pull herself up and would not prevent her swinging her legs out of bed. In this position it also served as a hand rail for her once she was on her feet. The client can now get in and out of bed unaided.
