Activeforever.com stocks a wide variety of assisted devices made for getting in and out bed. These safety devices include: bed standers, poles, wall mounted trapezes, grab and grip bars. One of the most common assisted living devices is the use of bed rails. Bed rails are important when bed safety is an issue especially for the elderly. Rails around the bed are important because when used correctly keep the patient from falling out of bed. Falls can lead to complicating an injury or even worse, creating a new one.
As you age muscles weaken and bones become brittle. Unfortunately the aging process makes it difficult to complete daily activities like walking, sitting and getting in and out of bed. One of the greatest fears of the elderly is falling. Seniors fear falling because a fall might mean being stuck until help arrives or a serious injury. Having side bed rails decrease the chance of falling out of bed and ending up in the emergency room.
