Here at Caremed we understand the importance of providing healthcare options for bariatric patients.
With 26% of men and 29% of women registered as obese in the UK according to digital NHS stats, and poorer areas struggling the most, it’s important that the needs are met in the healthcare environment.
Called the Rolls Royce of chairs, our bestselling SERTAIN™ hi-lo care chair also has a bariatric option. An advanced care chair, which has been designed in conjunction with Critical Care, Trauma and Rehab Professionals – it’s ideal for early mobilisation and critical care. Ideal for use post-bariatric surgery, it allows quick mobilisation of critical care and trauma patients, reclining to a 100% flat position. It also has castor wheels, with a forward tilting action and an electric handset. The bariatric chair has a safe working load of up to 300kg, and a seat which can be adjusted up to 68cm in width.
You can rent the SERTAIN™ chair from under £50 a day, or get in touch with us if you would like a refurbished chair price, or one from new. We can deliver the chair within 24 hours, and remember, we also provide servicing, repair and replacement parts for these hard-working chairs.
We have a number of beds that are also available for bariatric patients, from 200kg and up. For example the CM5000 Bariatric Nursing Care Bed has a safe working load of 250Kg. With an adjustable height of between 200mm to 800mm, it also has the Trendelenberg forward tilt. The bed comes with integral side rails, wraparound wooden head and foot boards, and a lockable handset.
