When handling obese/bariatric patients in an emergency, proper and safe restraint is key. With the Bear-iatrics Bariatric Equalizing Abdominal Restraint you're able to comfortably secure an obese patient to an ambulance, bariatric cots, and/or long backboards for transit.
This innovative product was designed to stabilize the large abdominal mass of an obese patient, providing the safest and secure transportation and transference.
It's made from top quality, high-grade materials that are chemical-resistant, UV resistant, and washable with soap and water. The abdominal restraint features eight 1-1/2" frame straps that each have a tensile strength of 750lbs, and allow the restraint to be attached to a cot. The three black hook and loop Velcro straps on the underside allow the restraint to be attached to a backboard when necessary. There are six 2" abdominal straps that each have a tensile strength of 1,200 lbs. and will help comfortably secure the patient to the backboard using the wrap.
With a total weight of only 4.4 lbs. and it's included storage bag, this is a convenient product every ambulance should have on board.
