Using a Bed Lever - Ministry of Health Recommendations

A bed lever is designed to assist someone getting in and out of bed and moving from a lying position to a seated position and vice versa.  It is not designed as a restraint or to prevent falling out of bed.  Read our checklist to help you decide if a bed lever is suitable, compatible with your bed and environment. The checklist can identify potential contraindications and risks but may not cover every situation. For this reason we recommend you consult with an occupational therapist or health professional.
