A Trapeze Bar In My Home? It’s Not What You Think…

A Trapeze Bar In My Home? It’s Not What You Think…

Trapeze bars, a medical device for bed-ridden patients, hang over a bed and allow patients to shift positions or transfer to and from a wheelchair device with minimal assistance. For bed-ridden patients with limited mobility, a trapeze bar can be a vital tool in the home.

When patients have difficulty shifting in their bed, or exclusively use mobility equipment to get around their home, a trapeze bar will minimize the need for an attendant or regular caregiver. The basic tasks of sitting up or shifting one’s weight is something that should be done regularly to avoid environmental health issues such as bedsores.

Often trapeze bars are included as an integral piece of hospital beds, which are designed to provide comfortable rest and functionality for patients who are unable to move independently. The trapeze bar works in conjunction with side rails to give a patient an environment that allows shifting when necessary. Since side rails on hospital beds are able to shift downwards and are flush with the mattress, patients can utilize the trapeze to transfer in and out of the bed.

These features are a major psychological benefit to those who are dependent on others for their daily needs. Having a healthy mindset contributes toward healing, and patients who feel self-sufficient are able to avoid debilitating obstacles like depression, dysphoria, and anxiety.

So, if you know of someone who might benefit from trapeze bars, consider helping them attain some to speed healing, improve independence and avoid depression and worry.
