ATTENTION
There is a potential risk of serious injury or death associated with virtually every product regardless of its type
or intended use. Stander, Inc., has worked tirelessly to minimize all risks associated with its mobility aids, yet
given the types of products, users, and a myriad of things outside of our control, we cannot eliminate every
conceivable risk. Accordingly, a consumer must use common sense when utilizing our products, and take into
account the user’s overall physical and mental health.
Read all of the materials that accompany this product before it is installed or used.

WARNINGS
1)
INSTALLATION:
a) Do not use or install this product unless you read and understand these warnings and assembly instructions to ensure the
product is properly installed and used. If installer/user(s) are installing this product in a nursing home, assisted living center, or
a similar facility, follow these and the facility’s Bed Rail installation policies. If you have any questions regarding the
installation, use, associated risks, or anything at all regarding this product call Stander Inc. at (800) 506-9901 or
(435) 755-0453.
b) Improper installation of this product significantly increases the risk of entrapment (see section on ENTRAPMENT below). Do
NOT install product without a bed frame under any circumstances. Do NOT use product without Safety Strap. Do not install
this product if you are unable to follow the instructions exactly.
c) This product should only be used with 11 inch to 16 inch thick innerspring or memory foam style mattresses. This product
should not be used on any bed which consists of a material that may increase the potential for gapping between the top of the
mattress and the bottom of the Bed Rail. Examples of beds that will cause gapping problems include, but are not limited to
waterbeds, light weight foam, air or other lightweight mattresses, mattresses that compress more than 1” on the edge when in
use, and beds with adjustable frames.
d) Prior to use, ensure that there is no gap between the side of the Bed Rail and the side of the mattress. A gap in this area
means the product was installed improperly. The included Safety Strap is designed to secure the Bed Rail to the side of a
mattress to avoid a gap in this area.
e) The Bedcane (Item #2041) is equipped with a Safety Strap that is intended to reduce the risk of entrapment (see section on
ENTRAPMENT below). NEVER remove Safety Strap or use product without the Safety Strap installed as per Assembly
Instructions. Removal, modification or alteration of the safety strap significantly increases the risk of entrapment.
2)
ENTRAPMENT:
a) There is a risk of entrapment associated with bed rails and other similar bedside mobility aids. Entrapment occurs when an
individual becomes wedged between a bed rail and any other object. Entrapment has resulted in serious injury and death.

that could impair their balance or judgment, or any other unforeseeable reasons that could affect the users physical and
mental ability to safely use this product, are at a higher risk of entrapment. Since these conditions are subjective and Stander
Inc. has no control over who chooses to use this product, it is the installer/user(s) responsibility to consult a physician before
using this product.
