What are Bariatric Supplies?
Put simply, bariatric supplies are medical grade equipment that are specially designed for larger individuals. Nowadays, increasing numbers of people are experiencing medical conditions that are aggravated by obesity; bariatric equipment and bariatric options can help to better accommodate larger individuals and alleviate the danger or discomfort associated with equipment that may be a little too small.
What’s Considered Bariatric?
The World Health Organisation considers any individual with a BMI over 30 to be obese and any individual with a BMI over 40 to be severely obese. So, any individual with a BMI over 30 can be considered bariatric. If you are unsure as to whether you or a loved one is bariatric, you can always reach out to a health professional for further advice.
Is Bariatric Equipment Only for Use Post-Surgery?
While bariatric equipment can come in extremely useful for individuals who have undergone bariatric surgery, bariatric surgery isn’t the only reason to invest in it. Bariatric solutions are specifically designed to improve the day to day life of bariatric individuals and can consequently be used regardless of whether someone has recently had surgery or not. Bariatric chairs and beds can form a part of everyday furniture, creating a comfortable space for any larger individual.
What are Bariatric Chairs?
Bariatric chairs are chairs that are specifically designed to comfortably and safely support a larger individual while they are in a seated position.
What’s a Bariatric Bed?
A bariatric bed is a bed that is specifically designed to comfortably and safely support a larger individual. It is generally stronger and wider than a standard bed. Bariatric hospital beds needn’t remain in a hospital – hospital beds are suitable for home use too and can be used for extended periods of time in the same way that a standard bed would be used. We also have community bariatric beds, with similar features, that will blend into the home environment.
Can You Rent Bariatric Beds?
We understand that you might not need a bariatric bed on a permanent basis. This is why we rent bariatric hospital beds and bariatric hospital bed mattresses for rental. We offer flexible contracts and will do our utmost to suit your needs and preferences in this area. Rental ensures that you are able to make use of bariatric supplies as and when you need. This service is also ideal for individuals who may be away from home and merely need use of a bariatric bed or extra wide/extra long bed for a number of days until they return home.
