CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a bed extension for a hospital-style bed for a tall individual with acquired brain injury. A 150-millimeter extension with two metal bars was made that bolted into the existing holes at the top end of the bed base. A headboard, padded and covered with vinyl, was fixed at right angles to the bars. Straps with Velcro strips were used to fix the lower section of the mattress in position. This adaptation reduced the how often the individual’s position had to be monitored, provided greater comfort, and assisted in improving his swallowing. TITLE: Correct positioning. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 29, Number 1, March 2009: pp. 10-11 PAGES: 3. (including cover).
