Bariatric Patient Chair for hospitals and clinics

Item no. 5107

VELA ‘Bariatric+’ Patient chair is a robust bariatric lift chair that offers staff a safe working practice and improves the patient experience. The heavy duty transport chair is approved for a user weight of up to 300 kg, and is suitable for rehabilitation, training and as a patient chair in the wards.

  • High-risk patient handling is often identified and connected to patient transfer. By many safe patient handling principles, the chair facilitates the ability to maintain independence through patient mobility, accommodating safe transfers for both patient and healthcare staff.  
  • Early mobilization of bariatric patients is linked to better health outcomes and reduced long-lasting consequences. The chair contributes to early mobilization by enabling mobility. 
  • Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSD) among nurses include low back pain and wrist, knee, and shoulder injuries, which increase when handling overweight or obese patients. The chair alleviates these risks by securing appropriate bariatric equipment for safe patient handling. 
  • The chair is optimized for transporting bariatric patients up to 300 kg and customized with easy-running wheels and electric height adjustment to support the patient during mobilization.
