The term Bariatric relates to those patients whose Body Mass Index (BMI) has exceeded the healthy range.
This is an increasing issue, particularly in the Western world where sedentary life styles and lack of exercise together with the prevelance of unhealthy fast food are contributory factors.
It is frightening to think that international studies suggest that over 300m of the World’s population are currently obese – and this is surely a train crash waiting to happen from a health perspective.
The fact that extremely overweight people can weigh anything from 136kgs to 450kgs plus would suggest that specialist equipment is often required to cater for the needs of these people so that they can manage their condition and that is both comfortable for the patient and easy for the nurse and carer to work with as appropriate.
At O’Flynn Medical we specialise in a range of Bariatric equipment designed with this in mind that includes a range of high specification beds with lots of features specifically designed to benefit the user, to heavy duty wheelchairs that offer the maximum in patient comfort and carer safety.
In addition to these, we also offer chairs, shower chairs and commodes specifically designed for bariatric patients.
Please feel free to contact us at any time if we can help you to know more about our bariatric equipment, and how this equipment can make the life of the bariatric patient and carer easier on a day to day basis.

We were delighted to exhibit at the annual ICHN (Institute of Community Health Nursing) Conference in Dublin recently which was very well attended by community nursing staff from around the country.
The ICHN is a representative organisation aimed at promoting community nursing services in Ireland and this years theme was ‘Community Nursing: Towards an integrated Model of Care’
We met with a host of HSE Nursing Staff who were very engaging and always looking for the best products and service for patients in their community. Platforms like the ICNH Conference are a great way to build and also maintain relatipships with people and also showcase the best O’Flynn Medical has to offer.
This years AOTI Conference took place at the Radisson Hotel in Limerick with this years theme being “Looking Back, Moving Forward”.
The Conference aimed to highlight the progression and development of occupational therapy in Ireland and highlight the work of occupational therapists working to promote health and wellbeing through occupation. The focus was on practical and research applications of innovative occupational therapy practices and welcomed national and international occupational therapists to share and discuss their creative and pioneering experiences.
We were delighted to exhibit over the 2 days and met with delegates from all around the country. We had a number of new products that we brought to the exhibition which drew great attention.
The ULTRA Low BED, Bariatric Fortuna Wheelchair and the Aquatec Ocean VIP ’tilt-in-space’ shower commode.
We were delighted to exhibit at this years Pregnancy and Baby fair with the AMEDA Breast Pump range all thanks to Marie Burke and Lorraine Behan Walsh who both work in our Sales and Marketing Department. This event is Ireland’s biggest, best and only exhibition covering all things pregnancy & baby related with some of the worlds biggest baby brands all under one roof.
A fantastic event that had ‘mums and dads’ and ‘parents to be’ queuing up from very early in the morning before the doors opened at 10am. Over 15,000 people passed through the doors over the 2 days.
We really enjoyed the event where we mostly met with expectant Mums and Dads and were delighted to help in anyway we could with information and advise on the AMEDA Breast Pump range.
We also held a raffle for a luxurious hamper containing some fantastic goodies, chocolate and an AMEDA Lactaline Breast Pump and would like to congratulate Sinead Murphy, from Old Parish in Dungarvan who was the lucky winner. Congratulations Sinead and every good wish for your journey ahead.
