DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To provide a portable, lightweight device enabling a person with limited upper body strength to change position in bed. The device was built from the strong but lightweight expandable tubing used in clothes closets. Quick release pins allow a vertical range from 3 to 4 feet and width range from 3 to 5 feet. The foldable legs are made of Lexan plastic. A canvas strap is pulled tight across the underside of the bed to make the whole unit stable. For travel, everything fits in a lightweight canvas carring case. This device was designed by John Suchon and built by Tom Jeary. TITLE: The Portable Overhead Bar.
