Bariatric Bench

What is a Bariatric Chair

Bariatric treatment Bench is (chair or treatment table) specifically designed for people with weight issues. The term “bariatric” refers to items created for obese individuals to best suit their needs. Bariatric seating is often used in hospitals and dental clinics because it provides the user with more room and comfort.

A Bariatric Bench is heavier, wider, and has larger armrests than other chairs. They are specially crafted to provide ease and comfort and can be used to move, assist, and aid bariatric patients, as well as offer support for medical practitioners. These chairs are perfect for those who need a little extra support.

Understanding Bariatric Patients Needs

Bariatric patients have an unhealthy weight, generally referred to as morbid obesity. This means their body weight is more than twice what it should be for their height and sex.

With the obese population in the uk & usa growing, this group is considerably over-represented in their use of health and social care services.

Easier Patient Management & Safety

The size of bariatric patients means that their needs are not the same as other patients. The more mobility-dependent a patient is, the greater risk for injury there will be for those providing care. Speciality equipment and space are needed to provide safe care require adapting the regular room environment. For this reason alone, the increase in the number of bariatric admissions presents healthcare facilities with an ongoing challenge to provide dignified care that is effective and safe both for the user and the provider.

How Do Bariatric Chairs Work

Bariatric Benchs work in much the same way as ordinary treatment chairs, with a few exceptions. Most importantly, they provide more space and support for the user. One of the most important features of these chairs is that they are wider than traditional treatment chairs, which provides more room for the legs to stretch out. The chairs often have a headrest that can be adjusted to accommodate taller patients.

Transporting Patients

Our range of bariatric benches and chairs are designed to be wheeled to be moved around easily. This allows nurses and staff members to provide care without moving the patient. Bariatric Bench are also available in recliner models that will enable patients to get up from the chair on their own.

Our range of products take up the minimum of floor space, can be folded away and maintain patient comfort. All our product have internal batteries for operation meaning there are no trailing wires to consider.
