Bed Safety Devices: What You Need to Know
Your bed should be the most comfortable spot in your house. However, if you fear the risk of injuring yourself when getting in and out of bed, this comfy spot can quickly increase your anxiety levels causing you to sleep on the not-as-soft couch. To help keep you safe, there are plenty of devices on the market to reduce safety risks when getting in and out of bed. Read on to learn all about the various options.
Regardless of your age, bed safety should be a top priority. You should be getting seven to eight hours of sleep every night. When getting in and out of bed or falling out of bed begins to reduce the amount sleep you get, your body starts to see these effects. To help you get a good night’s sleep, there are many devices on the market to help. Not only will you begin to sleep peacefully through the night, but so will your family members or caregivers.
Bed rails can help you easily get in or out of bed, but they can also keep you in bed while you’re sleeping. The bed rails can be attached to any standard bed frame and can be secured to either side of the bed. Certain bed rails can even fold down when not in use! Knowing that you can get in and out of bed and that you won’t fall out of bed while sleeping can give you and your family members and caregivers peace of mind during the night.
Bed canes are similar to bed rails, as they help you easily transition in and out of bed. Bed canes are best for when you need extra support getting out of bed, but may not necessarily need full-fall protection. Bed canes have a low profile that can be adjusted to your height, giving you the proper support you need.
To help give you support while you’re in bed, you can use a positioning wedge. If you’re tired of propping up your pillow every night, a wedge is what you need. Wedges come in different styles, sizes and angles to give you the comfort you need. You can use wedges for head, foot or leg elevation. This soft, but firm, material can give you the comfort you need to sleep peacefully through the night.
