These individual bed raisers enable the legs of the bed and thus the bed height to be raised. This can assist you when getting on and off your bed.
Examples of the types of raisers available include: cylindrical plastic sleeves which enclose the bed leg; screw-in raisers; replacement raisers; block raisers and wheeled raisers.
Always ensure that the bed legs are raised equally. Raising one end of a bed or not raising all of its legs puts strain on the bed and it can collapse.
Furthermore, ensure that the appropriate model of raiser is used for the different styles of bed leg, e.g castor base and square leg.
In some cases it may be difficult to find a compromise between the optimum height for carers and a suitable height for the user. Height adjustable beds can be the ideal solution for this issue. This can also be essential if one height is needed for getting out of bed and another for getting into it.
