---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create custom adapted bed railings to protect a child with cerebral palsy, developmental delay, and vision impairment from hurting herself by climbing out of bed. The parents had purchased a bunk bed set that had a potential for modification with a solid frame and clean sides making it easy to add attachments. Matching the style of the bed, three new rails were added with the fourth side fixed to the wall. Extensions were made for the head and foot of the bed to the existing railed pieces to raise them to 500 millimeters above the mattress. For the third side, a new set of rails, divided into three sections were made. One section at the lower end is fixed, and the other two are hinged to form a gate using strong steel parliament hinges. Consideration was given to prevent small fingers from getting pinched in the locking mechanism (silent and out of reach of the child’s hands). TITLE: Bunking down. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 30, Number 4, October 2010: p. 11. PAGES: 2 with cover.
