CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To prevent an individual who has Huntington’s disease from injuring herself on the rails of her hospital bed. Made of wood, the rails posed a danger to the individual as she thrashes in her sleep and because she got her arms and legs trapped between the rails. The rails were removed and covered with two layers of foam rubber tubing. The rails were then covered with velour fabric by sliding the rails into pockets on the fabric panels. The rails were then reattached to the bed and the bottom of each panel was secured to the bed base by screwing steel self-tapping screws through a wide hem added to the panels for that purpose. DIMENSIONS: The screws were 25 x 3 millimeters. TITLE: Bed Rail Padding. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 25, Number 1, Autumn 2005. PAGES: 20. Number of pages: 2 (including cover).
