Bariatric patient handling
Good bariatric care requires not only special handling equipment with appropriate weight ratings, but also solutions that take into account the associated care required for patients of different body shapes.
The handling of patients, who can weigh in excess of 150 kg (330 lbs.), can be time consuming and physically strenuous for caregivers. Without the proper equipment, both caregivers and patients can be at risk of serious injury.¹ Our range of bariatric handling equipment ensures facilities can handle plus size patients ergonomically and with streamlined efficiency. All solutions, including ceiling lifts, passive floor lifters and slings are specifically designed to enable caregivers to optimise the dignity and comfort of plus size patients throughout handling tasks.
