What is a Bariatric Podiatry Examination & Treatment Chair?

Bariatric Podiatry examination & treatment chair are (bench or treatment table) specifically designed for people with weight issues. Bariatric refers to anything made with the obese person in mind and their needs being at the forefront. Hospitals and dental clinics often use bariatric seating to provide patients with more room and comfort.

A Bariatric Podiatry examination & treatment chair is heavier, wider, and has larger armrests than other chairs. Our specially crafted products offer both ease and comfort, while also being able to assist and aid bariatric patients as well as offer support for medical practitioners. Perfect for those who need extra support.

The individual needs of bariatric patients.

The unhealthy weight of bariatric patients is commonly referred to as morbid obesity. Their body weight is more than double 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

Bariatric patients need different accommodations because of their size, which is 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.

What features do Bariatric Podiatry examination & treatment chairs have to accommodate larger users?

Bariatric Podiatry examination & treatment chairs operate in a similar fashion to traditional treatment chairs, though there are a few differences. The most important thing they provide is more space and support for the user. These chairs are important because they are wider than traditional treatment chairs and this provides more room to stretch out the legs. The armrests are taller, providing more room to stretch out the patient’s arms.

Transporting Patients

Bariatric benches and chairs we sell are designed to be wheeled for easy movement. This makes it possible for nurses and staff members to provide care without having to move the patient. Bariatric Podiatry examination & treatment chair are also available as recliners to enable patients to get up from the chair unaided.

Individual factors and the lack of space and equipment for safe care, transportation, and treatment, the manual handling of obese patients presents a challenge. Our products take up very little space, can be stored when not needed, and ensure patient comfort. All our product have internal batteries for operation meaning there are no trailing wires to consider.
