Children's bed safety rails and guards and accessories
Bed safety rails - also known as cotsides, side rails, bed surrounds and safety sides - are designed to help prevent children rolling out of bed accidentally. They are not designed or intended to restrain or limit the freedom of children by preventing them from intentionally leaving their beds.
Serious injuries have occurred from the use of bed rails. The prescribing, selecting, fitting and maintenance of bed rails therefore needs considerable care. The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) have issued a document Safe Use of Bed Rails.
The bed surrounds included here are either padded foam, or inflatable. Also included in this section is padding for bed safety rails. View relevant references ‣
