What to Consider in a Mattress When Caring for a Bariatric Patient

Dealing with bariatric patients whether in critical care, elder care or in-home, needs some technical expertise – and our experience puts us in the best position to create the bariatric hospital bed mattress that suits your patient’s needs.

Of course, the bed itself needs to be specially constructed to safely support the weight of bariatric patients. There are many different beds available, and we create a range of mattresses for every bariatric hospital bed.

Support and comfort for patients are of the highest priority, but the ease of care in terms of staff is important too. We have developed our mattresses to be comfortable and supportive, and a combination of immersion technology and airflow ensures our bariatric medical mattresses help to prevent and treat pressure injuries, manage effective infection control, and protect care staff.

The innovative technology that is used in every mattress includes shear mitigation for ease of patient movement and transfer. Moving bariatric patients safely and comfortably without damaging the integrity of the bariatric medical bed mattress is so important. That is why we have developed a medical-grade foam that is designed to allow patient movement without causing damage.

Strength and support for the larger patient are created through a combination of lateral stability from a firm foundation and postural support. The air circulation provided by the technological foam minimises internal heat entrapment and maximum moisture evacuation to help with infection control.

Choose the Right Mattress Configuration

With memory foam, gel or even air flow layers in different configurations suitable for a multitude of care situations, finding the right bariatric medical mattress is simple when you have the knowledge and experience of our experts on hand.
