Heavy patients are in danger of sinking through existing foam mattresses and bottoming out on the solid table top. Bariatric patients often have additional health issues such as diabetes which is a common pre disposing condition for the development of pressure sores. An additional risk is that folds of skin can become trapped between the sections of the table top when a table is actuated into position.
MFOAM offer two clear solutions for patients who weigh more than 130kg or have a BMI of 40+. Our bespoke bariatric mattresses are manufactured to OEM specification using a 30% higher density dual foam process with an increased thickness of over 100mm.
All bariatric products have undergone full pressure mapping analysis using Vista Medical FSA pressure mapping technology. They benefit from all the features of our standard mattresses including sonic welded seams, unique airflow system, super stretch fabric, full compliance cetification.
A cost effective alternative solution to a bespoke bariatric mattress is to enhance the existing support system with an MFOAM Topper. Manufactured to the same high OEM specification, the extra wide topper uses 50mm of high density Visco Elastic Foam for extra support. The topper is securely placed on the existing mattress utilising a non slip base to prevent slippage.
