MediSmart Technologies has launched a new specialist bariatric range for plus-size users, offering what it describes as a holistic approach to plus-size pressure care management.

Providing standard sizes as well as custom options, the new bariatric range includes dynamic air mattresses, integrated hybrids, embedded hybrids, seating options, and the “revolutionary” ultra-low Microcell Companion air mattress that can be retrofitted onto riser recliners.

David Beavis, Sales Director at MediSmart Technologies, told THIIS that the company launched the specialist range as it wanted to build on the success of its current dynamic alternating and hybrid mattress sizes to ensure a holistic approach for plus-size customers as ‘one size does not fit all’.

He added: “Whether plus-sized patients are in a bed or sitting out in a chair, the bariatric range highlights the importance of selecting the right surface for the right individual in the right clinical setting.”

The new range comprises of five pressure-relieving systems, including for beds, riser recliners and wheelchairs.

The Bariatric G4 Integrated Hybrid Mattress System with automatic pump combines foam and air, which is used by the integrated hybrid mattress design. Used for beds, the mattress allows for broader clinical application up to very high-risk level. It has a user weight limit of 60 stone and features an electronic pressure sensing control.

In addition, the G2 pressure-relieving mattress allows for broader clinical application up to very high-risk level, featuring low- and high- pressure settings. The mattress also has integrated carry handles for easy transportation and storage and features an electronic pressure sensing control.

Building on MediSmart’s popular MicroCell Companion ultra-low profile alternating support surface to retrofit onto rise & recline chairs and day chairs, the company has now launched three bariatric versions of these mattresses.

The Bariatric MicroCell Companion Mattress comes in three different sizes: full size – 1800mm length, two-thirds size – 1200mm length, and one-third size – 600mm length. The one-third size option also fits onto wheelchairs, alongside riser recliners and day chairs.

Each of the bariatric MicroCell Companion mattresses can be retrofitted onto a range of rise & recline chairs and allow for broader clinical application up to very high-risk level.

David has confirmed with THIIS that the new bariatric range is available in the UK and internationally.

All of MediSmart Technologies’ products are manufactured from the company’s factory in the UK. The company has recently been awarded certification of ISO EN 13485:2016 for its quality system registration and fulfilment.
