The Bed Rail Advantage is a portable bedside handle that gives extra support with getting in-and-out of bed wherever you go. It's great for those who don't need full-fall protection - but might need extra support in getting in-and-out of bed....more
This product was perfect for my mother who has trouble getting out of bed. She is able to get up now without help and its sturdy, has really comfy foam padding on the metal and she loves the caddy for her headset and audio player. I searched around and this was also the best price. I was really pleased with the purchase.
very very impressed when i saw this at a patient's home ( i am a PT) so got one for my husband and now we just got another so that we have one for travel too -- secures around the mattress bed springs so it is very secure
Bought this for my Mom who has arthritis and difficulty getting in and out of bed. I helps to have the rail to hold on to . She expecially likes the pockets to hold her meds, TV remote, tissues, A full length bed rail would be too restrictive. This one is just a perfect size for a lttle extra help.
Very easy to install the only issue was the strap is so long for a twin bed that you have to take the extra and toss under the mattress. The sturdy sets comes when the person sits on the bed. It is sturdy once you do attach to the bed frame but it is the reinforced once the person sits. Great to aid an elderly person.

The product is as shown and does exactly what it says it will do. The pouch on the rail is great for storing remotes, telephones, tissue, etc. It does not hinder the persons ability to get in and out of the bed.
The only thing I would recommend is if the person is likely to put alot of weight or force on this product you might consider getting the rails that actually have feet touching the ground to give more support. They do give with force so if a person was very big the legs would help keep from bending the rail, or the person loosing their balance. Overall a very good product. The person I bought these for weighs less than 100 lbs. and just needed something to hold on to to pull herself up, at 93 sometimes you need alittle help.

Just had a total shoulder replace, and I am no flea weight. The side rail fits well on my adjustable bed, was easy to install. It is quite sturdy. It makes getting in and out of bed much easier & safer. The pockets are quite handy for controls I pad, etc. could not be happier. It can easily be moved to use in motor home.

I'm studying the photos, but I see no strap. I've got a platform bed (no lip, but a solid center board to the floor). My mattress is 4" of memory foam. I can't imagine a way to strap anything anywhere. Can you help? --("for any bed" is a rule like all rules, so a custom one-off exception would only prove it, yes?)--spanishorse on Jan 24, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
