Equip Your Facility for the Bariatric Resident

 

Over the past two decades, obesity has been rapidly increasing in the United States. Not only is it a major health concern, obesity can also have implications for how your facility provides care.According to the most current data from the CDC, 35.4 percent of adults over the age of 60 are obese. (To be considered obese, an adult needs to have a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or higher.)

With the number of obese seniors increasing, it's leading facilities to bring in new, specially designed equptiment. Standard-sized products might not be able to accommodate residents with bariatric proportions.Fortunately, manufacturers are in tune with the rise in obesity and have developed products with this population in mind.


CWI Medica has a wide variety of bariatric products including:
