The Bariatric EvacMat provides a safe solution to the movement of plus size/bariatric individuals from locations such as care homes and hospital wards in the event of an emergency.
The unique design of the Bariatric Evacmat securely cocoons the individual and holds their body weight in place, to help overcome problems associated with body mass stabilisation and make the movement of the EvacMat more stable. Colour coded cross straps enable quick, easy fastening - now featuring seatbelt style metal buckles.
Capable of assisting with horizontal and vertical evacuation, the EvacMat incorporates multiple ladder handles and positioning handles to help personnel to adopt good working posture, reducing the risk of injury to themselves. Anchor points allow for the use of ropes during difficult stair descents.
It’s strong slippery base enables the mat to move over indoor and outdoor surfaces. Other features include a foot pocket, internal pillow and integral carry bag.
