Obesity — which is now classed as a disease — has reached epidemic levels. Estimates show that 31% of Australian adults are obese. The direct health costs of obesity are estimated to exceed $2 billion annually. At Service Assist, we are committed to helping caregivers meet the special needs of obese patients with our industry-leading bariatric equipment.
While the prevention of obesity is vital, it is important to ensure that those affected by obesity are treated with dignity and respect. Customised bariatric equipment must be safe, effective, durable and affordable. From shower chairs to wheelchairs, Service Assist is making life easier for caregivers and patients with our extensive range of bariatric equipment.
Comfortable and easy to use, the Escort Bariatric Chair is a complete motorised patient transport system for patients up to 350kg.
With the Helipad Retrieval Trolley, you will never be caught unprepared in an emergency. Featuring a 300kg weight capacity, the purpose-built trolley can be easily manoeuvred over difficult terrain, ramps and all types of walkways. The heavy-duty 24-volt MotorDrive system can be raised or lowered with the push of a button to enhance mobility in confined spaces.
Give bariatric patients a relaxing, safe and comfortable showering experience with our high-quality Bariatric Shower Chair. Featuring a 660mmm seat width and 350kg capacity, the chair has fold-back arm rests and stainless steel construction.
A bariatric wheelchair is a “must have” for patients who find it difficult to walk without experiencing pain. Typical dimensions for bariatric wheelchairs are 90cm-100cm in width by 66cm in depth. In comparison, standard wheelchairs are typically 66cm wide by 66cm deep. In selecting bariatric wheelchairs for your care centre, it is important to check the ergonomics for easy movement with increased weight load. Other related considerations include the required door width for egress and the clear floor space required to accommodate the turning radius of the wheelchair.
Does your wheelchair need repairing? We can supply, repair or even motorise your wheelchair. Give us a call for further sales and service information.
