BED RAIL MODIFICATION
Our client has poor mobility and a requirement for bed rails in order to get into bed one side and out
of bed on the other. Whilst there are bed rails available for a double bed, the client was most particular about they type
of rail she wanted to give her the best support, and this meant using two single rails that would end up overlapping when slid under
the mattress which wasn't desirable. The photo below shows the problem.
This is an example of how a simple modification can
be made to a commercially available product to meet the client's requirements. In this case, all it needed was the tubes to
be shortened by a couple of inches in the area of the existing joints, and new holes drilled for the locking pins, so there was no
longer the overlap.
