VENDLET Bari is an assistive device for moving and handling bariatric patients in bed. The patient turning system relieves the task of turning and repositioning obese clients, while also improving the quality of care, providing a more gentle and comfortable repositioning.
Safe Working Load: 400 kg.
Moving and handling bariatric patients present a great challenge and risk for healthcare workers. However, using the powered patient turning system with a safe working load of 400 kilos (800 pounds), it is possible to turn bariatric clients in bed without added force from the healthcare staff, who are instead turning the client by the press of a button.
Any heavy lifting or strain on staff is eliminated from the moving and handling situation, which makes the care situation manageable and safe for both parties. This means, that the client does not feel like a burden for the staff, meanwhile, the staff can turn and reposition the bariatric client without risk to their health and safety. This ensures more dignified care.
With the patient turning system you can:
Turn the bariatric patient from supine to lateral position
Move the bariatric client sideways in the bed
Move the bariatric client from the bedside and further into the bed
Move the bariatric client up in bed
Turn a bariatric patient to prone position
Position a sling on the bariatric client
Turning While The Backrest is Elevated
For many obese patients, it is uncomfortable to lie in the supine position because it blocks the airways making it harder to breathe. However, using the patient turning aid, it is possible to turn the patient while the backrest is elevated. This makes for a more comfortable experience for the bariatric patient that maintains their normal respiratory function even when being turned or repositioned.
When using the patient turning system, VENDLET Bari, it is possible to adjust the speed of the system to suit the client and the healthcare worker’s needs. The system can run at normal, medium, or slow speed. The latter can be beneficial for both client and staff as there is plenty of time to gently reposition the fatty tissue.
How it Works
The bariatric patient turning aid consists of two motorized bars that are mounted on each side of the bed and are operated by hand control. To turn a bariatric client from supine to side-lying position, simply raise one bar and tighten the sheet. As the system turns the client, gently position their arms and legs as needed.
