The Bed Step – Two Steps, is designed to help patients get into and out of bed. This is very useful when the bed will not go down low enough. This may be due to the design of the bed. Or possibly an overlay pressure mattress has been fitted to the bed, making it higher. By using the Bed Step it makes the person able to get in and out of bed more easily, by allowing their bottom to go nearer to the middle of the bed.

To Use

The Bed Step is placed alongside the bed, so that when the patient is standing facing the head of the bed, they can step onto the first Step possibly having a hand on the mattress to steady themselves. Ensure their heel is in front of the marked line. The Steps are large enough to have two feet on them. The patient can shuffle forward and mount the second step, then they can do a quarter turn so their bottom will be positioned to sit on the side of the bed. The Bed Step can also be used for getting ON or OFF ambulance trolleys.

The decision to use the 10cm / 4″ or the 20cm / 8″ Bed Step will depend on the height of the bed, so long as the patient’s bottom will be safely near the middle of the bed.
