Over bed Tables

Overbed tables are bedroom mobility aids designed to improve independence whilst in the bedroom. Over bed tables are usually on wheels to allow the person to easily manoeuvre the table towards them without the need to get in and out of bed. The table can sit next to the bed and have things like food and drink, reading equipment and laptops etc to be in close reach. The user can then pull the table over the bed for easy access and use.

After a long period of laying, it can be difficult for the person to easily stand up out of bed, especially unaided. We have standing aids such as sticks, walking rollators and walking frames available which when used with a bedrail can be very helpful to assist with standing up safely.
