ProAxis Bariatric Care Bed

The ProAxis Bariatric Care Bed was designed to satisfy the unique demands of caring for patients weighing over 700 pounds. While its extra-wide mattress platform can accommodate the largest patients, the bed has a standard width that easily fits through doors and in elevators—which helps patients to maintain their dignity. All the bed’s functions are electronically controlled, reducing the potential for manual handling injuries. The ergonomically designed powered platform can be programmed to slowly move patients through a predetermined series of movements that continually redistributes the point loading of their weight eliminating discomfort and reducing infection from bed sores. Since its release, sales have increased by 287 percent over the previous model.
