CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To prevent a plastic-covered mattress from sliding off a home hospital-style bed. The hospital bed has a plastic-covered mattress on top of the main mattress. The plastic cover caused the mattress to slide off the bed while the user was in bed. Long belts were made out of seat belt webbing and buckles were attached to each end. The belts were then bolted to the underside of the bed. When buckled over the mattress, the belts hold the mattress in place and prevent it from slipping. The straps can be unbuckled and folded back to make the bed. TITLE: Bathroom Assistance. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 26, Number 2, July 2006: p. 12-13. PAGES: 3 (including cover).
