The Friendly Bed System, model EB, is a bed mobility, transfer and positioning aid designed for use by adults and older children with mobility, neurological, balance, or severe physical disabilities, or spinal cord injury, arthritis, weakness, or pain in home and other homecare settings. The system has a steel framework that fits king, queen or double conventional beds. The frame has two end pieces that are placed beyond a bed’s headboard and footboard (or end if the bed does not have a footboard). The ends are connected by two parallel poles that extend horizontally over the length of the bed, and there is a vertical pole that extends down to the floor from one of the horizontal poles near the head of the bed. The vertical pole can be used as an aid for standing or sitting on the bed. Trapeze bars or other positioning aids can be mounted on the horizontal poles. The frame also extends under the bed for added support and stability. The system requires two headboard and footboard posts. Bed frame rails can be up to 1.25 inches thick. The Friendly Bed System adds a bedside table and a side rail on one side of the bed. The table and the side rail are fastened to the under-bed frame. This system also includes an over-bed light and a triangular trapeze.
