Bed Assist Device-Rails
One of the components of hospital beds that is damaged the most is the side rails. Patients often use them to support their weight when getting in and out of bed. In addition to providing a secure grip for patients, they are also important for providing communication features that allow patients to request caregivers.
A defective rail can loosen over time and collapse under pressure leading to patient injury or fall. Also, side rails that cannot be adequately tucked are often damaged during transportation from running into doors, walls, and other equipment. They require regular lubrication and adjustment to prevent malfunction.
