inHealth is recognized as the leader in the safe and dignified transport of obese or “bariatric” patients. Our goal is to provide the best patient care in customer service on all levels including bariatric transport. In recognizing the significant increase in bariatric patients and the limited resources in providing these specific services, as an industry leader, we continue to evaluate and purchase state-of-the-art equipment, such as Ferno’s fully electronic stretcher for bariatric patients.
We believe all bariatric transports should be completed in a safe, professional and dignified manner, our training and equipment enables us to achieve this standard.
Our fleet of hydraulic stretchers, complete with unique Lateral Body System (commonly referred to as LBS) increases the width of a standard stretcher to accommodate larger patients lifting up to 700lbs with no manual assistance. Folding “wings” reduce the LBS profile for better maneuverability through doorways. The wider platform allows patients to comfortably rest while accommodating much more body mass and all unique bariatric needs, whether the extra body mass is in the upper or lower extremity.
