Anti Entrapment

Entrapment occurs when a patient in care (e.g. a resident in a nursing home) becomes entrapped in a piece of equipment that is used to nurse and care for the user. Entrapment most commonly occurs in care beds, with the patient's limbs being particularly susceptible to entrapment between side rails, bed base and side, etc. Anti-entrapment aids are used to reduce and where possible, prevent entrapment in care environments. An example of an anti-entrapment device is a side infill wedge, a wedge of foam that seals the gap between the bottom of the side rails and the top of the mattress platform.
