Bariatric Products

Bariatric products specifically designed for heavier patients. Manual wheelchairs, walkers, commodes, transfer benches, and health care beds.

Serving the home medical equipment needs of Bariatric clients is a specialized business. You will need to consider the challenges that these patients face and how that translates to their living environment. Measure doorways and hallways to determine any limitations for walking aids, scooters and wheelchairs. Consider the turning radius requirements for wheelchairs. Consider weight of products and whether they need to be moved or transported. Who will do the lifting?

Assessing the Bariatric Patient

Mobility Assessment: A cane or walker can promote activity. A lifter may be required to assist in safe transfers.

Daily Hygiene: Products that facilitate bathing will promote good hygiene.

Sleeping Environment: Bariatric clients may be bed-ridden and more susceptible to the development of decubitus ulcers or pressure sores. Therapeutic support surfaces should be considered.

Sleep Apnea: Obesity is a direct factor in sleep apnea. Seek evaluation for CPAP therapy.

Plan for caregiver safety. Lifting of any patient is inherently dangerous.
