How To Choose The Right Bed Rail

October 20, 2021 2 min read

With so many options of bed rails out there, how do you know which model will work for you?

Provide support, or prevent falls? 

Bed Rails for Support

Our portable bed rails such as Stander Bedside Econorail and Stander Bed Rail Advantage Traveler are perfect for users who require just that extra bit of support when getting in and out of bed. They fit onto any bed (Divan or framed) and can be installed and removed in seconds. These bed rails come with a removable pouch to keep handy items within reach. 

Another useful option for providing additional support is the Stander PT Bedcane which is the slimmest bed rail in our range. It provides the perfect support for getting out of bed with its unique ergonomic handle and sleek, non-obstructive design. It even includes a small pouch for handy items. 

Both the Stander Stable Rail and Stander Mobility Bed Rail have two supporting legs, with the latter equipped with an additional swing-out arm to assist the user to stand up. Do note that these two bed rails are only suitable for divan type beds of minimum 13.5" in height. 


Bed Rails for Fall Prevention

The most well-featured bed rail, the Stander EZ Adjust Bed Rail is specially designed for the purpose of fall prevention to ensure elderly persons can sleep safely. It is the only bed rail in the world that has an extendable length, which is perfect for preventing falls at night. In addition, this bed rail includes a cover that doubles up as a handy pouch, and prevents entrapment. Best of all, it fits all regular home beds, both divan and framed, and can be installed in minutes.

Another key feature is the collapsible feature, which allows it to be folded down 180 degrees to the side of the bed, so users can get out of bed easily. This feature is also particularly useful for caregivers to help lift elderly persons out of bed.

For additional support in getting up, consider this handy device called a Bed Caddie, which has a ladder-like design, making sitting up easier. You can place the bed caddie beside the user so that it is within reach when needed.

For users who may need to spend longer periods of time in bed, consider the HappyHome Foldable Backrest or Electric Adjustable Backrest which can be adjusted to allow the user to sit up in bed in a more comfortable position.


Need even more support?

Bed rails are a simple way to transform the existing bed into something safer for the elderly user. If you require even more features, such as more customised angles for the user, or adjustable bed height, you may wish to consider a nursing bed.

Also check out the premium homecare bed made in Japan, the Rakusho Z Series Bed by Paramount Bed. This bed includes revolutionary technology to prevent pressure sores, maximise user comfort, and a low bed height for extra safety.
