Bariatric beds offer an extra wide sleep surface designed to meet the needs of larger and heavier users. Bariatric beds with weight capacities of 450 lbs. to 1,000 lbs. offer more comfortable extra wide sleep surfaces of 42", 48", 54" and 60" widths that allow more space and comfort for the user. NewLeaf represents only the top manufacturers in the category Big Boyz Beds, Drive Medical and Invacare.
NewLeaf's bariatric hospital beds are extremely durable, with full-electric adjustable features that maximize comfort and reduce the chance of caregiver injuries that can occur with patient transfers, turning and repositioning, bathing and more.
When placing a bariatric bed in a room, remember to ensure that there is a sufficient amount of space around the bed to accomplish whatever clinical or nursing tasks may arise. Generally, a clearance of five feet on each side as well as at the foot of the bariatric bed would allow enough room for any task that may need to be completed. Electrically operated beds provide a very comfortable sleeping position.
To manage the user's circulatory and respiratory problems and ensure pressure relief, the bariatric bed should be matched with a Bariatric Deluxe High Density Foam Mattress or Bariatric Alternating Pressure Mattress. This will ensure that the user's circulation and pressure management needs are being met to reduce the chances of developing skin breakdown and pressure ulcers.
