Fall Mats can be placed next to the bed to soften the impact for elderly patients who may be prone to falling from the bed or while getting in or out of the bed. These cushioned floor mats run the length of most standard beds and simply get placed on one side or both sides as a precautionary measure. The mats can be moved out of the way when not in use and there are also fall mats with beveled edges that can accommodate wheelchairs if left in place. These impact absorbing foam cushioned mats typically have a wipe clean vinyl top and non-skid bottom.
Safety Bath Mats can be placed in bathtubs and shower stalls to prevent slipping or sliding while bathing or showering. Safety tread strips stick to clean flat surfaces to provide a better grip under your feet. They can placed on stairs or in bathtubs and showers as well.
