How to Choose the Right Bed Rail

Bed rails are a simple solution to bed mobility and independence. They prevent falls in the bedroom and make getting in and out of bed easier. There are different styles of bed rails available that pertain to an individual's specific needs. Swinging, stationary, half-length, and full length are all different styles of bed rails that have specific features to provide an individual with the convenience and support they need.

Stationary bed rails, like the Standers Stable Bed Rail, are ideal for anyone going through rehabilitation after injury, recovering from surgery, or with limited mobility. Stationary bed rails provide a sturdy arm to help an individual get in and out of bed. They are also great for anyone in a wheelchair and fit both standard and hospital beds. The M-Rail Bedside Rail features a rounded "m" construction which allows one or two hand leveraging. The ergonomic no-slip grip handle contours to your hand reducing wrist strain. Stationary bed rails are even offered in a portable size. Portable bed rails, such as the Bed Rail Advantage Traveler, make it easy to take with you on any trip. With no assembly required, the handle folds down for storage and portability and will attach to any home or hospital bed.

Swinging bed rails are designed for individuals who need assistance with moving, standing, and transferring in and out of bed. Unlike fixed-style bed rails, swinging bed rails, such as the Smart Rail System Bed Rail, can unlock and pivot outwards to prevent falling and to provide better support without having to do any twisting or reaching. The Standers Mobility Bed Rail has a swivel arm which provides support where you need it and the adjustable legs will fit most beds.

Half-length bed rails such as the Drive Half-Length Side Bed Rail, are used to keep individuals from falling out of bed and they are durable enough to assist a person in standing up or getting in and out of bed. This provides an individual the capability to carry on with their daily lives without another person's assistance. The Invacare Half-Length Rails for Bariatric Hospital Beds provide support for individuals weighing up to 600 pounds and can easily be adjusted to an upward or downward position. Half-length bed rails are especially useful when a bed is elevated.

Full length bed rails are specifically designed to keep a person from falling out of bed. They are longer than the half-length bed rails and will most likely be seen on hospital beds in a nursing home or medical center. The Invacare Deluxe Full Length Bed Rail with Reduced Gap prevents patients or loved ones from falling off the bed, providing the individual with carefree sleep.

Bed rails are a wonderful solution to making your life easier and will help you to continue performing your daily tasks. If you have trouble getting in and out of bed, a swinging or stationary bed rail will be an ideal solution. If you are scared you may fall out of bed in the middle of the night, a half or full length bed rail may be exactly what you are looking for.
