Accessories include bed length adjusters, bed rails, bed ladders, bed gallows, duvet holders and backrests.
Bed gallows or a bed ladder help a person to stand up. The bed gallows is a pole that is attached to the head of the bed and hangs over the person with a triangle-shaped handle. The bed ladder is attached to the foot of the bed, pulling the person from rung to rung to an upright position. For both variants, the bedridden person requires strength in the arms to sit up.
Bed guards protect the person from falling out of bed. There are continuous bed rails or divided ones, which only protect the upper body.
