About the Bed Rail Protector – Strap On

The cover is a hospital-grade material on the inside and outside. This is a wipeable surface for hygiene.

They are used on beds for confused patients who may be at risk of bed rail entrapment and hurt themselves by hitting the bed rails or getting arms, legs, head, etc. stuck in the rails.

Mediflextra is a specially made material widely used for medical use. It helps protect against urine, faeces, vomit, blood, etc. You can remove the cover for washing. Generally you can wipe it clean. It is hard-wearing and long lasting.

There are two adjustable webbing straps, and two Hook & Loop Tape  straps to keep it in place on the bed rail.

What is the difference between the 'Slip Over' and 'Strap On' Bed Rail Protectors?

The difference is that the strap on ones do not 'envelope' the bed rails - they simply fold over the top and are attached with adjustable buckles. The Slip Over ones are designed to fit over the rails with Mediflextra on the inside next to the patient, with different patterned material on the outside. They are secured with Hook & Loop tape straps and are big enough to fit over most standard bed rails.

Do the Bed Rail Protectors have to be removed to lower the rails?

We recommend removing the Bed Rail Protectors while the bed rails are down. Many facilities leave them on, so it depends on the type of bed rails you have. In America, where there are many split Bed Rails, they need to be removed completely.
