Bariatric hospital beds cater to larger patients and have a broader frame and enhanced weight-bearing capacity than regular hospital beds.
Depending on the specific model, these beds can vary in width, typically ranging from 36 to 48 inches and extending up to 84 inches in length.
The accompanying mattresses for bariatric beds are thicker and more robust than standard hospital mattresses, providing increased comfort and support.
Furthermore, these beds often have built-in side rails, adding extra safety measures to guard against potential falls.
- Bariatric beds are broader, sturdier, and longer-lasting, ensuring ample support and comfort for more prominent individuals.
- These beds aid in reducing the risk of pressure sores, promoting even weight distribution and making it easier for patients to move around and transfer.
