Side rails provide safety of mind to those in the adjustable bed as well as those who care about them. No one should worry about nighttime falls, or being unable to adjust until the morning. Bed rails provide more independence to users, and the rail covers provide extra comfort and visual appeal!
Side Rails for Your Flexabed
A side rail for a bed, also called a bed assist rail, safety rail, mobility bed rail, or support rail, goes along the side of the bed to prevent a sleeper from rolling out of bed. The rail can also be used for repositioning in bed.
Falling out of bed when sleeping can cause potentially major injuries. Avoiding a fall has a huge impact on maintaining a certain quality of life for the sleeper.
An important note: these are NOT designed to support you while getting in and out of bed, but to provide added security while you sleep.
Flexabed side rails can be folded away whenever needed for convenience. Each bed can accommodate up to two rails on each side, equalling four rails total. The Premier must be ordered with a 4-inch foundation profile to be used with rails.
Side Rail Covers Are Available
Our Flexabed side rail covers complete the finished look of your bed while cushioning the rails.
They feature a large pocket for conveniently storing your bed controller, eyeglasses, magazines, and more. A covered rail can help provide safety from falling out of bed and gives leverage to change positions in bed. This padding can also help decrease the risk of entrapment.
Side rail covers are designed to perfectly fit Flexabed bed rails. These rail protectors are also soft and complement the design of our safety rails. Side rails are an excellent way to prevent falls, but for some the hard metal and plastic surfaces might be dangerous when mixed with agitation, restlessness, and confusion. Especially for those with fragile skin, covers should be added on to prevent injury.
