BEAR-iatrics, Inc. specializes in providing innovative products that are designed to lower your patient’s anxiety level, speed up transport time, and help reduce back injuries to your transport crew. The new BEAR-iatrics Bear Pods are capable of all that and more.
Improving on the design of the original BEAR, the pods comfortably secure bariatric patients to cots to ensure safe, efficient transportation. They are designed to permanently attach to the frame of any brand or size of cot thanks to sturdy, durable frame straps. The pods do not have fragile zippers that can break easily and at the worst possible times. Additionally, the pods can be attached to the sides of the cot, which avoids any interference with the side rails. Simply lift the mattress and fold the pods underneath the mattress for safe storage.
They can efficiently secure patients who measure 4 to 5 feet tall and weigh between 300 and 700 pounds to a standard, 20-inch-wide cot. The risk of cot tipping is greatly reduced due to bolstered stability: The pods are able to prevent sudden, lateral shift caused by the uncontrolled abdominal mass of larger patients.
