VENDLET Bari is an assistive device for moving and handling bariatric patients in bed.
The patient turning system relieves the task of turning and repositioning bariatric clients, while also improving the quality of care, providing a more gentle and comfortable repositioning.
Moving and handling bariatric patients present a great challenge and risk for healthcare workers. However, using the powered patient turning system with a safe working load of 400kg, it is possible to turn bariatric clients in bed without added force from the healthcare staff, who are instead turning the client by the press of a button.
Turning While The Backrest is Elevated
For many bariatric patients, it is uncomfortable to lie in the supine position because it blocks the airways making it harder to breathe. However, using the patient turning aid, it is possible to turn the patient while the backrest is elevated. This makes for a more comfortable experience for the bariatric patient that maintains their normal respiratory function even when being turned or repositioned.
