Bariatric beds have been designed to help reduce pressure ulcers. According to an HSE report, bariatric patients are at an increased risk of pressure sores caused by poor blood supply to fatty tissue resulting in skin breakdown. However, turning or repositioning patients requires immense physical effort by care-givers and using specialised equipment is therefore recommended.
The casa med ultra profiling bariatric bed comes with plastic head and foot boards, and optional side rails for those deemed at risk of falling out of bed. This specialist care bed is height adjustable, between 40 and 80cm, enabling carers and nurses to treat occupants without bending over as well as providing users with assistance between transferring in to and out of bed.
Beneficial positions, achieved electronically, include back rest, leg rest and knee brake positions, providing the user with the utmost support and comfort while reducing the risk of bed sores. In addition there is a dual action headrest and knee brake adjustment on the handset, to help reduce strain whilst profiling.
