An alarming amount of the population is overweight. People are living longer; some are on life saving medications causing retention of water and weight gain. Being disabled and lack of exercise is a large part of the problem. An obese person is more likely to end up in the Hospital and then be sent to a Nursing Home.
Are you prepared to handle this weight patient?
Bariatric not only applies to weight but also size. When a bed is needed other than a standard hospital bed of 36" it is automatically put into the Bariatric category. If you are a Hospital, Sleep Center, Nursing Facility or a Caregiver the problem is very real. A certain percentage of your patients will be this overweight patient and need special Bariatric equipment for the daily tasks of living. I have taken the time to research and gather the basic equipment that we all take for granted.
Hospital Beds with as much as 1200 pounds weight capacity. Hopefully you will never have to deal with that weight patient. Most Medical Facilities are upgrading their equipment just in case they have a seriously overweight patient. There are low beds that have an 800 lb weight capacity (8” from deck to floor) and will rise to 24”, then add the height of the mattress. Other beds can also be used as Gurneys, expand from 39” in width to 48”. Hospital Beds with and without Trendelenberg, Reverse and Cardio Chair options. There are different widths to Queen Size and different lengths. There are Overhead Trapezes attached to the bed, Battery Backups, Scales and many other options. Did you want the patient to exit from the foot of the bed? This feature is also available on some of our beds. Whatever your needs, we have the answer.
Special Extra Care Bed
This is a bed that for some patients will help them to enter and exit from the foot of the bed. This saves a lot of time and work trying to manage a patient of this size.
There are many different bed choices depending upon the manufacturer.
A special mattress designed for Facilities, Long Term Care and Sleep Centers that has a weight capacity of 750 lbs or 1000 lbs and is constructed so that the mattress is comfortable for any weight patient. A very special mattress.
Powerful Results - Without Power! Sound impossible? With a standard static air system, it is, but the PressureGuard CFT is truly different. It uses patented Constant Force Technology™ to automatically adjust the mattress's network of interconnected air cylinders and elasticized reservoirs to the appropriate, therapeutic levels for each patient, regardless of their weight or position on the surface. Delivers customized pressure reduction comparable to low air loss, while providing patient with a stable surface to maximize functional ability and maintain safe positions.
This patented support surface design was developed by Span-America in the late 1980’s in conjunction with Dr. Thomas Krouskop of the Baylor School of Medicine. Computer-guided equipment is used to cut foam into a geometric pattern of supportive cubes that are undercut with an open channel.
Unlike flat or convoluted ("egg crate") foam, these individual cubes allow the surface to conform to the body and accommodate bony prominences, redistributing pressure across the support surface. This minimizes the pulling of the skin and tissue over bony prominences, thereby offsetting the harmful effects of shearing forces. The “Ring of Air” helps to disperse heat and moisture away from the body and out into the atmosphere. The channel also assists in pressure management by providing, in effect, a layer of air between two layers of foam to enhance conformance of the foam to the body.
A special mattress designed for Facilities, Long Term Care and Sleep Centers. These Special
mattresses have a weight capacity of 750 lbs or 1000 lbs and is constructed so that the mattress is comfortable for any weight patient.
Next Generation-Power Alternating Pressure or Lateral Rotation at the Flip of A Switch! With its two distinct therapy modes, the PressureGuard APM2 gives you twice the treatment options. Twice the flexibility. Twice the value.
Change instantly and easily from alternating pressure to basic lateral rotation with a single, recessed toggle switch. Requires no disconnecting or exchanging of air lines.
And, when ordered with the new Deluxe control unit, the APM2 offers even more value. The “Static” button parks the unit in powered flotation mode, temporarily suspending rotation/alternating pressure to facilitate feeding, transfers, dressing changes, etc. The "Low Pressure" indicator light gives users at-a-glance assurance of proper function.
Fighting Ulcers? The Volkner company is recognized internationally as specializing in the manufacture, in the U.S.A, of turning mattress overlays and mattress replacements for the prevention and treatment of bed sores, (pressure sores, decubiti), and as an aid in mobilizing pulmonary secretions. This company has the right answer in all weight capacities and widths to accommodate any size bed and can make special sizes. If you are faced with a Bariatric Patient that needs turning this is the Hi-Tec unit that will handle your problem and the top weight capacity is 1000 lbs.
The bed and mattress is the most important purchase you need to start with. More time is spent in bed than out of bed and the more comfortable the patient is the faster they will respond to treatment. On the next 2 pages you will find what is needed for the Caregiver as well as the patient. Making things easier for everyone is what this site is all about. You can always contact me and I will be ready to work with you and help you with your choices.
