At Wealden Rehab we have designed bariatric chairs that can support up to 80 stone and offer different frame and pressure relief options. One of our heavy-duty frame options allows up to 30 stone on the leg rest alone! Our seating options offer comfort, support and long-lasting solutions.
Our equipment is designed for safe bariatric transfers, making it easier for carers to move the heaviest individuals without risking injury either to themselves or to the client. Improving comfort and dignity for the person being transferred is also a prime consideration.
Bariatric patients can present a number of challenges in regard to their treatment and management including manual handling and tissue viability. Failure to address these situations may lead to patients requiring increased medical or healthcare interventions and lead to a failure to receive the correct treatment required, and possibly lead to adverse conditions or consequences for staff and patients.
Bariatric patients are more at risk of developing pressure ulcers due to poor circulation to fatty tissues resulting in skin breakdown. Pressure from the sides of equipment such as commodes, wheelchairs and chairs that do not fit correctly may cause breakdown over the hip area. It is essential to ensure that the correct equipment is used to support the patient’s size and width without causing pressure areas.
