CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To prevent a child with intellectual, communication, mobility, and vision disabilities from leaving the bed unattended during the night. An enclosure for the bed was built using eight plywood panels covered in fabric-covered foam. Each panel is equipped with two metal handles on the back to enable the child's parents to remove one or more when assisting the child in and out of bed or when changing sheets. Three panels fit down each side and the bed has a U-shaped panel at the head and a flat panel at the foot which has straps made of seatbelt fabric that attach around the cutout in the footboard with Velcro. The top two side panels fit between the mattress and the existing rails and hook to the bottom rails with L-shaped clips. The bottom panels hook directly into the bed frame. TITLE: Night Safety.
