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.
- Identical to the V5S, but built to handle the larger and heavier clients for whom the V5S would not be suitable
- 200kg / 63 stone Safe Working Load
- Allows for the reduction of care packages from often 4 or more carers to just one or two
- Allows for dignity and safety when caring for plus sized individuals
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
