The grab handle is attached to an existing side rail - it is adjustable and automatically locks into predetermined positions. The user obtains additional support during mobilisation by holding onto the grab handle. The handle is positioned in such a way that balanced strength ratios are generated during gripping - the user can grip and use the handle particularly easily. If necessary, the handle can be pivoted to the side - to unlock it just pull the locking pin. By pressing the button on the side, the handle can be moved inwards for a more ergonomic gripping direction and can be individually adjusted.
