The Bariatric Transfer Specialists
Meditransport Ambulance Service are one of very few ambulance services in the East Of England to have full bariatric capability, where specialist equipment and skills combine to offer transfers to a unique group of patients.
Focusing on dignity, comfort and safety, every step of the transfer is risk assessed and planned by an experienced member of staff before being executed by a team of 2, 3, 4 or more staff depending on the complexity of the transfer.
Specialist Bariatric Equipment
We have equipment capable of moving a patient weighing up to 400kg (63 stone) using a Ferno Megasus bariatric stretcher. Whether the patient is transferred on the bariatric stretcher or in a wide specialist bariatric wheelchair, a winch is used to load the patient into the vehicle ensuring staff safety and a smooth transition on to the vehicle for the patient.
A Highly Experienced Bariatric Team
We have moved many NHS and private bariatric patients, our team have encountered many challenges which they have met via ingenuity, effort and experience. Every patient is always treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.
