Bariatric Medical Equipment

Patients who heavier have unique challenges and often need medical equipment to help them improve their quality of life. Itís also important for caregivers dealing with obese individuals to have the right supplies to assist them. For example, attempting to transport a larger individual can be dangerous for the patient and cause strain and injuries for the caregiver.

Sherman Oaks Medical Supplies carries a full range of bariatric medical supplies to help in the care of heavier patients. This equipment improves safety and care while treating obese patients with dignity and respect.

Some of this equipment includes:

Bariatric Walking Aids

Itís important for bariatric patients to remain active. Bariatric walking aids such as crutches, canes and rolling walkers can help them to get up and get mobile even if they have trouble supporting their own weight or are dealing with long-term issues. Other products such as knee walkers are valuable to help aid in recovery from injuries.

Bariatric Manual Wheelchairs

Overweight patients who are confined to a wheelchair have special needs. Using a regular wheelchair is often impossible since the seat is too narrow to be comfortable or it doesnít have the proper maximum weight capacity. Bariatric manual wheelchairs are designed to accommodate larger body types to provide a safe and comfortable ride. These wheelchairs can include anything from standard wheelchairs to transport wheelchairs.

Bariatric Power Wheelchairs

Bariatric power wheelchairs allow patients to easily get around with a chair that is powered by an electric motor. Heavy duty power wheelchairs are designed to handle the extra weight of larger patients, allowing them to travel in comfort while quickly getting where they are going. Some power wheelchairs are designed for everyday use while others are made for rehab after a serious accident or travel where portability is key.

Bariatric Mobility Scooters

Mobility scooters are the perfect option for people who donít need a wheelchair but struggle to walk long distances. Bariatric mobility scooters provide larger individuals with the same level of comfort and convenience as standard scooters. Bariatric scooters are made to last with extra reinforcements and wider seats for greater comfort. There are a variety of bariatric mobility scooters types to choose from including 3-wheel and 4-wheel scooters as well as travel scooters.

Bariatric Lift Chairs

Getting into or out of a chair can be problematic for larger individuals. Many heavier people also struggle with joint problems such as knee or hip injuries, making sitting down or standing up a challenge. Bariatric lift chairs are recliners that tilt forward and backward to assist heavier individuals in getting up and down. They are stylish and comfortable, and bariatric models are made to accommodate people of any size.

Bariatric Adjustable Beds

Finding a comfortable sleeping position can be difficult for any person, but this is especially true for heavier patients. In the case of patients who are bedridden, itís also important to move into different positions regularly to avoid bed sores and other potential health issues. Bariatric adjustable beds are made for larger individuals. They have a greater weight capacity than regular beds but can still assist in getting patients into comfortable positions for sleeping or relaxing.

Bariatric Support Surfaces

Having a great adjustable bed is just one element in making sure that bariatric patients are comfortable when in bed. Bariatric support surfaces also play a critical role in providing comfort for larger patients. These products include anything that a patient might lay on including therapeutic mattresses, foam mattresses and mattress overlays. This can also include pressure overlays and low air loss therapy to improve the health of a patient.

Bariatric Patient Lifts

Helping to get a bariatric patient ready for transport can be extremely difficult for the patient and the caregiver. Physically lifting a patient can be impossible depending on their weight, and can easily lead to strain and injuries for providers. Bariatric patient lifts provide a mechanical solution that is safe for patients and reduces the possibility of injuries for caregivers. These units can be manual or electric and can also help patients who can stand but canít support all of their weight.
