An adjustable bed rail is a tremendous aid for someone who needs safe and secure assistance getting out of and back into bed. Being able to have a rail to grab on to and then balance one’s body in order to pull up is a blessing to someone who has to spend a good portion of life lying in bed and also needs some in-bed mobility. A rail also helps to prevent falls when standing up and transferring to and from a bedside commode or wheelchair.

Home Bed Side Helper
Attaching directly to the metal bed frame, this safety rail extends to the floor on four legs for added stability. There are four grasping points for support, and it also has a weight capacity of 250 pounds.
EZ Adjust Bed Rail
Providing an extension to full bedside protection from rolling out of bed, this versatile rail adjusts from 26 inches to 42 inches with the push of a button. Therefore, it can also be used as a half rail when the patient wants to get out of bed. A strap secures the rail between the bed frame and the mattress. It is easy to install the rail with provided tools and hardware. The rail folds and can be placed elsewhere when not being used. An additional “perk” is an organizer pouch for storage of frequently used items. This rail has a larger weight capacity up to 400 pounds.
There are other selections of bed rails depending on the needs and amount of safety required.
