VENDLET Bari Bariatric Patient Turning System
The VENDLET Bari is the bariatric variant of the popular and award-winning V5S system. With a much higher safe working load (SWL) of 400 kg / 63 stone, the VENDLET Bari bariatric patient turning system is built to handle the larger and heavier clients for whom the V5S would not be suitable.

Bariatric patients (generally considered as over 25 stone) pose a particularly acute moving and handling risk to carers, due to both their size and their weight. In many cases multiple carers – up to three or four – are required to manually move and position a bariatric client in bed. This is a task with a very high risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD’s) for the carers.
The VENDLET Bari bariatric patient turning system can reduce this to just a single carer who can operate the system with one hand and guide the client with their other hand. With a much higher safe working load (SWL) of 400 kg / 63 stone, the VENDLET Bari bariatric patient turning system is built to handle the larger and heavier clients for whom the V5S would not be suitable.
Please note: The VENDLET Bari system is only compatible with VENDLET™ slide sheets and turn sheets. Use of other sheets may invalidate the warranty and may constitute a risk to patient safety. Please speak to us for further details.
The VENDLET V5S+ is for service users who exceed the safe working load of the V5S – a client who is over 200kg/32 stone.
This video illustrates how the VENDLET transforms an everyday care task:
Along with the other models in the VENDLET family – the V5S and Basic – the VENDLET V5S+ fully complies with IEC guideline 60601-2-52:2009 – which applies to the “basic safety and essential performance of medical beds intended for adults”.
The VENDLET V5S+ also has a much higher working load than the V5S. Instead of a maximum SWL (Safe Working Load) of 200kg, it has an SWL of 400kg/63 stone
SWL (plus size): 400kg/63 stone
Warranty: 1 year
