--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with multiple sclerosis to raise and lower side rais on a home hospital-style bed independently. The rails were mounted toward the head of the bed and folded toward the foot of the bed, making it impossible for the user to raise or lower them while in bed. The rails were reversed and re-mounted toward the foot of the bed, enabling them to be opened from the top by the user. TITLE: Bathroom Assistance. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
