Bariatric Evacuation Sledge With Pouch - Emergency Transportation For Care Homes

This is a reliable and safe way to help evacuate the less mobile in Emergency situations. Suitable if a patient may have a bedroom above the ground floor level, if a fire breaks out and the elevators shut down, this sledge can be used to safely and comfortably transport patients from their beds down stairwells to safety.


Our bariatric evacuation sledge is a very similar to our standard evacuation sledge. One of the benefits of the bariatric sledge is that the dual layer foam is widened to accommodate the larger person. The dual core foam is made up of two separate specifications, the base layer being a heavy duty construction to aid patients in transit on uneven surfaces such as carpets, concrete or any bumps like stairs or steps.


The layer surface foam is to comfort the patient in transit. The webbing used runs the full length of the unit to aid in strength and mobility when moving the patient. The webbing has a breaking strength of over 2 tonnes.


There are safety belts and a foot pocket to hold the patient in place, pulling loops at each end and a tough slippery coated bottom side. The loop at the head end is to hold back when descending stairways. 


One or two people are required when using this Moving Aid. The whole item is stored in a 100cm heavy duty pouch and Instructions are sewn to the outside of the bag. Prevents trips or falls by storing the sledge safely in the bag, hang upon patients bedroom door or in communal hallways.
