Growing Range of Bariatric Products

Growing Range of Bariatric Products

Some reports say that worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980. These rising levels of obesity in our population affects all aspects of NHS and private hospitals, ambulance services, nursing homes, funeral directors and fire and rescue services as they struggle to safely move and transport bariatric patients.

From ambulance stretchers and lifting cushions to building evacuation chairs and bed slide sheets, the SP range of bariatric equipment allows for the safe movement of obese and overweight patients whilst minimising the risk of injury to healthcare staff and first responders from hazardous manual handling.

Following increasing requests from our customers, we now offer a comprehensive range of bariatric equipment including many of our own Donway branded products.

With bariatric products, it's not just about taking a standard product and making it 25% bigger. Safe bariatric care requires specialist manual handling equipment with appropriate weight and strength ratings. It's also about providing dignity, comfort and safety for the patient, as well as providing the healthcare professional with the appropriate equipment and training to minimise the risk of back and other musculoskeletal injuries.

If you have a particular request or are experiencing difficulty sourcing bariatric equipment for your specific requirements, then please do contact us as we are adding new products to our range all the time.
