The various types of grab handles on the market are either wall fixed, bed fixed or floor fixed. They are used to pull on by someone to help sit up or turn over in bed. Some are fixed in one position, whilst others lock into a choice of several positions.
Some of the static models obstruct part of the bedside, which can make it difficult to get in and out.
Ensure that there is no risk of entrapment within the rail, at either end of the rail or between the rail and the mattress.
Please note that it is unsafe to use bed grab handles as bedside safety rails (cotsides).
