The Bariatric EvacMat

Every hospital which admits bariatric patients should own at least one bariatric evacuation device. As traditional ski sheets and ski pads cannot be used with bariatric patients, a variety of bariatric evacuation devices have come onto the market, such as bariatric evacuation sleds, bariatric ski sheets and air assisted evacuation devices. With so many choices, each with their pros and cons, it can be difficult to make the right decision.

If you are looking for an all-round solution, the Bariatric EvacMat may be more suitable for your needs. The Bariatric EvacMat successfully balances the need for safety, for both users and patient, with the necessity for mobility and cost-effectiveness.

6 Benefits of the Bariatric EvacMat:

1. Suitable for Bariatric Patients

The Bariatric EvacMat has been safety tested up to 350kg.

2. Safe & Secure

Colour-coded cross straps keep the individual comfortably cocooned and securely held in place, making the EvacMat more stable when moved.

3. Mobile

The Bariatric EvacMat’s tough slippery base allows it to glide easily over indoor and outdoor surfaces. It can be used for both horizontal and vertical evacuation of bariatric patients. The four side ladder handles and short positioning handles allow a high level of manoeuvrability.

4. Compact

Unlike a traditional ski sheet, the bed mattress is not transported with the patient, reducing the overall weight involved and making it easier to manoeuvre the EvacMat in confined spaces and through doorways. When not in use, the EvacMat rolls up into a carry bag, with handles, for easy transportation and storage.

5. Easy to use

With the adequate training of staff, the Bariatric EvacMat may achieve a reasonably fast preparation time compared to other evacuation devices.

6. Easy to clean

The EvacMat can be wiped down with standard hospital disinfectants.
