Women are instructed to avoid lifting anything over 25 lbs during pregnancy. In a recent study Within the Danish National Birth Cohort, this has been supported by possibly the largest study ever linking work related lifting and risk of preterm birth complications.
The study shows that women who lift loads over 40lbs more than 10 times daily at work increase their risk for preterm birth by 4x.
Many beds in hotels can weigh in excess of 150 lbs and is why the BedMadeEZ is such an important tool for the predominantly female room attendants that don't have access to maternity leave. This also is invaluable for anyone who makes their bed on a regular basis as back injuries can happen to any individual, regardless of age or gender.
