Buying Guide: Choosing the Right Bariatric Equipment

At Shelden Healthcare, we specialise in providing a comprehensive selection of equipment designed to enhance the quality of life for individuals with unique care needs. Our products are engineered with a focus on comfort, safety, and support, ensuring a positive experience for both caregivers and users alike.

When selecting bariatric equipment, it's essential to consider the specific needs of larger individuals. Here's a brief guide to help you make an informed decision:

  • Weight capacity: Ensure the equipment can safely support the user's weight. Check the maximum weight capacity of each product, which should be significantly higher than standard care equipment.
  • Dimensions: Select equipment with larger dimensions to comfortably accommodate the user. Consider factors such as the bed or wheelchair width, seat depth, and overall size.
  • Support and comfort: Bariatric aids should provide enhanced support and comfort for the user. Look for products with features like high-density foam mattresses, adjustable backrests, and pressure redistribution.
  • Functionality: Consider the specific needs of the user, such as mobility, transferring, or sleeping. Choose equipment with features that cater to these requirements, including bariatric hoists for transferring or wheelchairs for mobility.

Remember to consult healthcare professionals for guidance on the most suitable bariatric equipment for your needs. Browse our wide range of bariatric aids and make an informed choice today.
