What are bed aids?

Bed aids include a wide range of supportive aids, such as back rests, support rails and lifters that help to make your bedtime routine a relaxing experience. Bed aids are all designed to be used on, or close to, your bed.

What are the benefits of bed aids?

Bed aids give you extra support and comfort when using and transferring into your bed.

Bed aids are a great way to help you grow in confidence and independence if you are living with a disability or age-related health condition and find it difficult to manoeuvre in bed.

What bed aids do you offer?

Back rests, wedges and pillows – we offer a range of wedges and pillows that rest behind your head and back, so you can sit or recline comfortably in bed. Some of our wedges can also be used for leg support.

Support rails – we have a variety of handheld supports to be used in bed, including grab poles, bed ladders and bed rails. Our rails and ladders fit securely under your mattress or onto your bed, whilst our poles fit securely between the celling and floor. Bed ladders are ideal to pull yourself up independently to a sitting position, whereas our poles and rails offer stable handheld support at your bedside - perfect for transferring.

Blanket cradle – our cradles fit under your bed covers to keep bedding raised above your legs. They are ideal for reducing friction and irritation from your blanket or duvet.

Lifters and elevators – we offer a range of mattress and pillow elevators that raise you from a lying to sitting position. With handy remote controls, our elevators move at the push of a button, giving you the ability to move independently in bed.

Bumpers and mats – bed bumpers and mats are ideal if you’re prone to falling out of bed. Our soft, but strong bumpers are attached to the side of your bed to prevent accidental falls. The mats fit onto the floor to give a comfortable landing if you tumble in the night.

What should I look out for when choosing a bed aid?

When choosing a bed aid, you should check the fitting and size. All of our bed aids can be fitted to a range of beds and floors. However, it is important to check the type of bed you own and its measurements, as well as the dimensions of the product you intend to buy, to ensure that they are compatible.

Make sure you consider your own personal requirements – for example, do you need help sitting up or transferring in and out of bed?
