Spring mattress with hard edge

Specially ordered hard edge in the spring mattress facilitates transfers for wheelchair-bound persons with impaired balance.

Description
Bed with spring mattress with hard edge built into the mattress and installed by the bed manufacturer. The hard edge facilitates transfers. The bed is the same height as the wheelchair.

Authors comments
The mattress can be specially ordered. When Erika was newly injured she chose a firm edge in order to be able to move around. Today it is no longer necessary. The bed can be ordered in any desired height.
