    Posey Side Rail Wedges, 35"L x 17"H x 2"D

    Side Rail Wedges rise 11 inches above the surface of the bed mattress to provide maximum patient protection. These wedges can span the length of the bed sides or close the gap between split bed rails. In combination with Horseshoe Wedges, these Side Rail Protectors can completely surround the perimeter of a patient's bed by zipping together. Posey Side Rail Wedges are made with a soft foam padding material and include vinyl covers that can be easily wiped clean with liquid detergents. Posey Rail Protectors are recommended to prevent patients from injuring themselves by attempting to leave their beds without assistance or by entangling themselves in their bed rails. They attach to the bed with easy to use hook and loop straps.
