Bariatric Profiling Beds
Bariatric patients may require a hospital style profiling bed to remain independent in their own home. We can supply a range of bariatric beds that will take a max user weight of up to 39 stone. These beds are slightly wider than a standard profiling bed by 30cm to give the user more space and comfort when lying in bed.
Our Lomond Bari bed featured here is available in Oak or Walnut wood finish. We have access to other models of beds and can also supply a range of bariatric high risk mattresses. Please contact our team for further information.
