The Bed Side Helper can help people getting in and out of bed. It reminds where the edge of the mattress is and prevents rolling out of bed. The frame is made from a strong poly-carbonate plastic that is easy to wipe clean.
You can use the Helper on almost any bed that has a separate mattress and base. Make the bed as normal leaving the Helper in place, or remove it during the day.
This product may help you if you suffer from a proprioceptive condition.
Two Cover options
Thick Padded Cover Helps protect people who may have an epileptic seizure or other uncontrollable movements. Made from thick convoluted foam with a soft velour outer cover that has a pocket on the outside. The hand slot is covered to prevent hands getting caught.
The Bed Side Helper is easy to place under a mattress and has two height settings. A Health Care Professional can help determine the most suitable position. They may place the Helper near the shoulder, elbow, or leg.
USING MULTIPLE BED SIDE HELPERS
More than one Bed Side Helper can be used, e.g. one near the shoulders and another near the legs. You can also have one on each side of the bed. To do this you can either purchase a Security Strap with Loop to connect them (see photo).
USING ON SPECIAL LOW BEDS
The Bed Side Helper extends 11cm / 4.3″ lower than the mattress base. If required for a low bed that is very close to the floor, please contact us. We can customise the Helper to suit your requirements.
BED SIDE HELPER ACCESSORIES

Security Strap with Loop Provides extra support if someone is moving a lot in bed and hitting the Bed Side Helper with their arms or legs. The Security Strap is attached to the Helper and the Loop is lassoed to the frame on the opposite side of the bed.
Security Strap with Disc Provides extra support on ensemble beds which do not have bed frame rails. The plastic Disc attachment is placed upright between the mattress and the base to act as an anchor.
Floor Extension When used on a soft ensemble style base, the Helper may press into the base when pushing down on it. To prevent this, the Floor Extension is fastened to the Bed Side Helper with the bottom of the Extension resting on the floor.
Alarm Pad Alerts if a Patient is leaning against the Helper, or if they are hitting it during a seizure. It can be used with an Alarm Box or a Nurse Call Paging System. You can also use the Alarm Pad to call a Carer if you are not able to operate a Nurse Call Button.
