Super-cushioning mat helps make bedside as safe as possible
Getting up in the night for bathroom calls-something that gets more common with age-always increases the danger of falls. You’re already groggy, it’s dark, and your knees and legs may not be wide awake. This impact-absorbing safety mat helps reduce the possibility of injuries associated with bed falls.
Here are the facts: One-third to one-half of those older than 65 are prone to falling. Two-thirds of those who experience a fall will fall again within six months. Falls are a leading cause of death for women over 75 and men over 80. All good reasons to have a protection mat at bedside, tubside or in the kitchen as you work.
The Egg-Drop Test
This mat is constructed of high-density foam and absorbs impacts so well that an egg dropped from a five-foot height will not break! Imagine what it can do to protect you from serious injury if you happen to fall.
A non-skid bottom reduces chances of the mat slipping on floor surface. And there’s a tapered edge that lessens the possibility of stumbling and provides easy wheelchair access. The trifold design makes for convenient storage and portability. There’s also a durable, easy-clean cover.
