Bariatric (or heavy duty) patient lifts are similar to the other hydraulic or power lifts except they can support a greater weight capacity to accommodate a larger user. The weight capacity of these patient lifts range from 600 - 700 pounds. We have bariatric patient lifts from Hoyer, Invacare and Drive Medical.
Like other patient lifts, these lifts assist with transfers from bed, chairs, bathtub or toilet as the user needs. Wheels on the base of the lift make it easier to move from room to room as needed.
Unless you already have one, a patient sling would also need to be purchased before a bariatric lift could be used properly.
If you need more information or assistance selecting an bariatric patient lift, please contact our friendly and knowledgeable customer service representatives who can go through your options and make recommendations for your specific situation.
