Moving bariatric and obese patients between surfaces, for example from their bed to a wheelchair, can be difficult unaided. Both the carer and the patient could be subject to discomfort and injury if the correct moving and handling equipment is not used.
Here at UKS Mobility we stock a wide variety of bariatric moving and handling equipment, allowing the easy manoeuvre of obese and overweight patients with dignity and care. Browse our full range of moving and handling aids for bariatric patients below, where you’ll find heavy duty slings, toilet slings, moving boards, and heavy duty turntables which can cope with weights of up to 35 stone.
We also stock a number of heavy duty patient turners and crutches for those with very limited mobility, as well as emergency floor recovery lifting cushions in case of slips and falls.
We hope you’re able to find all of the bariatric equipment you need on our website, but if there’s anything else we can help with please don’t hesitate to contact us.
