Support is at your fingertips when you choose a sturdy rail for assistance.
Adult Bed Rails are a great support tool for when getting in and out of bed is a challenge. Often family caregivers call us looking for support structures like hospital beds, when in reality, a good bed rail can serve a similar purpose at a fraction of the cost. A lack of upper body strength, poor mobility and balance issues are some factors that can make this activity of daily living difficult and even painful. One of the simplest yet most effective solutions is a supportive bed rail. Quickly installed, a rail offers one or more easily accessible grasping points to ease lying down and standing up from bed and adjusting position while in bed. Some styles pivot or fold down and out of the way, while others also come with holders for bedside essentials like reading glasses. The following are our Parentgiving Picks for best Adult Bed Rails:
