Boards, Foot

Definition : Boards designed to provide support to the feet. Most footboards consist of a horizontal or slanted piece of wood or other material (e.g., hard plastic) that is placed on the floor to accommodate a sitting patient's feet. Other footboards are designed to keep the feet in a vertical position when the patient is on a bed; they are usually attached to the bed and may include lateral cushions to prevent foot rotation. Some footboards are used as table extensions (attachments) to accommodate taller patients or as vertical footrests.

John Thornton Posey founded the Posey Company in 1937, when he built a bed cradle for a hospitalized friend who complained about the weight of the bedcovers on his feet. The hospital liked the idea, and asked for a price for 12 bed cradles. The Posey Company landed its first order, and made a profit of $12.
