Bariatric Mattress Overlay

Transform a Bed with a Bariatric Mattress Overlay

Providing care for patients is a process, so being able to flexibly provide care that matches patient needs makes for superior results. A bariatric mattress overlay can change a basic hospital bed to be able to support a patient that needs more.

Forte Healthcare are innovators in the medical mattress industry – combining more than 20 years of servicing the Australian and New Zealand medical market with clinical expertise and technological knowledge to manufacture the very best equipment. We have worked closely with the best suppliers of raw materials throughout the world – like Sioen Industries in Belgium and Dartex Coatings in the UK. We then import these materials to our manufacturing facility in New England to create covers and mattresses that are the very best available in Australia. Our personalised customer care and agility make us the perfect partner for those providing care in facilities and in a home situation.

If you are caring for a patient that needs extra support, a bariatric mattress overlay is a great option to ensure that the care provided can adapt and develop with the needs of the patient. It is also a good option for facilities that need to be agile in providing care for multiple patients, too. Read More

A Wide Range of Bariatric Covers for Mattresses

Our high-performance medical grade mattress covers have been developed to be the missing link in the complex interaction between the support surface and the patient. Produced in Armidale, New England from the best raw materials across the globe, the Premiflex range of covers can adapt a mattress to offer interface pressure relief and shear reduction – perfect for the larger patient. As an overlay for a bariatric mattress, the surface offers immersion for bony prominences as well as dispersing pressure to protect from and treat pressure injuries. Our Premiflex covers are suitable for stretchers and mattresses.

If you are looking for a bariatric mattress topper, the deep immersion foam we create is specially designed to make it more comfortable and safer for patient care – it is difficult for a patient to be repositioned, whether because of the level of care needed or any other reason, the topper needs to be able to envelop the patient to spread the pressure of the body, a better outcome when it comes to pressure injuries. Infection control is simple when the topper for a bariatric mattress allows for breathability and moisture evaporation – the body heat can be dispersed to ensure comfort and any moisture can just wick away. The covers are all designed to be simple to keep clean – perfect for use in any facility or for care at home.

Why Choosing Forte’s Bariatric Overlay for Mattresses

Here at Forte Healthcare, we know how important the right equipment is to provide the best levels of care for any patient, and that is why we have developed a large range of options that can be configured as bespoke, one-off productions or manufactured by volume for larger facilities. Our dedicated, experienced team are ready to take you through a concise and extensive consultation to discover exactly what you need – a full mattress configuration, such as a stretcher mattress, mental health mattress or an aged care mattress, or just a topper for a bariatric mattress – so that you can provide the best care for your patients.
