Patients who heavier have unique challenges and often need medical equipment to help them improve their quality of life. It’s also important for caregivers dealing with obese individuals to have the right supplies to assist them. For example, attempting to transport a larger individual can be dangerous for the patient and cause strain and injuries for the caregiver.

Ability Medical Health & Wellness carries a full range of bariatric medical supplies to help in the care of heavier patients. This equipment improves safety and care while treating obese patients with dignity and respect.

Some of this equipment includes:

 

Bariatric Walking Aids

It’s important for bariatric patients to remain active. Bariatric walking aids such as crutches, canes and rolling walkers can help them to get up and get mobile even if they have trouble supporting their own weight or are dealing with long-term issues. Other products such as knee walkers are valuable to help aid in recovery from injuries.

Bariatric Manual Wheelchairs

Overweight patients who are confined to a wheelchair have special needs. Using a regular wheelchair is often impossible since the seat is too narrow to be comfortable or it doesn’t have the proper maximum weight capacity. Bariatric manual wheelchairs are designed to accommodate larger body types to provide a safe and comfortable ride. These wheelchairs can include anything from standard wheelchairs to transport wheelchairs.
