WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The Bed Ladder Strap is a long piece of webbing with hand loops sewn down its length. This allows the patient to hold onto it to help them sit up. It is an alternative to using overhead metal monkey bars. As well as in hospitals and aged care facilities, they have also been used in various surgical, imaging and cancer care practices for day patients.
The black elastic attaches to the bed frame, or can be tucked under the mattress. This makes retrieving the Strap easier if it falls off the bed.
The Bed Ladder Strap Middle Bed Belt is an accessory for the Bed Ladder Strap. On a bed where there is nowhere at the foot end to attach the Bed Ladder Strap to, it is used to provide an anchor point.
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
This product is suitable for people who have limited strength, to help them sit up in bed.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
