One of my patients suffering from akylosing spondylitis came on a routine visit today. She is injecting a TNF-inhibitor on her own and doing fine. Though we call her disease in remission, she still has aches and pains. During nights she complained about having difficulties in turning from one side to the other in bed. And look, what a friend has developed for her:

She describes her bedroom with having gable walls, under which she has placed her bed. This easy had made grip is fixed in the slanted wall. I think the problem is just getting it properly fixed, so that one can apply some force to it. Now, she can turn in her bed more easily and reduce the burden of her disease. 
I like if patients, friends, and relatives find solutions for daily problems.
