Bed Rails

The installation of bed rails is to provide fall protection so that users can sleep safely and securely.

At Northside Medical Supply, we carry the most popular railing styles and top quality brands like the Stander EZ Adjust Bed Rail, which has an adjustable length and folds out of the way when not in use.

Bed Canes

Bed canes, also known as bed assist rails or bed handles, are used to shift positions while in bed, as well as for transferring independently in and out of bed. Although bed canes usually do not provide fall protection, it is important to choose a bed cane that has a sufficient weight capacity to safely bear the weight of the user during transfers and positioning.

If you’re looking for a bed assist rail, at northside Medical Supply we sell the best-selling Bed Assist Bar, which features tool-free assembly, a universal design that makes it compatible with moth bed types and sizes, as well as a convenient storage pouch. For extra safety, these adjustable bed rails (and many rails like this one) are equipped with safety straps that secure to the bed.

Bedside Hospital Bed Table

Whether you are bound to a bed, or just want to cozy up in bed and play a table-top game, a hospital table (often referred to as a hospital tray) is the perfect way to give you access to activities that would otherwise be impossible in bed.

Often utilized by care facilities, hospitals, and other medical facilities, the overbed table is a mobile staple which many nursing homes provide each patient with. The tray on it can usually be adjusted so that it is immediately above the wheelchair or bed, and within the patient’s reach. Oftentimes, an overbed table can be tilted until it is in the position the patient desires so that the patient can read a newspaper without craning his head. The overbed table serves the purpose of a typical table, only it can be utilized even when the person is sitting in a wheelchair or bed.

Home and hospital overbed tables are movable and are height adjustable to fit over your mattress. Thanks to this feature, they can often double up as a convenient table surface when sitting in a chair, on a couch or in a wheelchair. Be sure to check the height range of the overbed table you are considering if this is a feature that is important to you.

Since hospital bed tables are designed with a base that rolls under the bed, another thing you should consider is how much space there is underneath your bed frame before making your final purchase. Other things to consider when making a purchase include the size and style you want. You can find bariatric overbed tables, tilt overbed tables, and a variety of base types, colors, and finishes to choose from.

Overbed Table Types

There are several types of hospital bed tables to choose from, including the following:

  • Tilt Top Overbed Table: These tables for over the bed are great for reading, allowing you to tilt the table surface so you can read more comfortably.
  • Non-tilt Overbed Table: A flat surface is ideal for users who will primarily use their overbed table for activities such as eating and playing table-top games.
  • Heavy Duty Overbed Table: Bariatric overbed tables are designed to support higher weights (when the wheels are in the locked position) with up to 500 lb weight capacity.
  • Auto-touch Overbed Table: You can control the height of your table with a light touch when you purchase an auto-touch overbed table.
