Why do you need an evacuation device for bariatric patients?

  • You cannot simply lift someone out of bed – that’s too heavy.
  • Transferring a bariatric patient onto a portable evacuation device takes too much time in an emergency.
  • The bariatric beds are often too wide to push it through the narrow doors.
  • You need to be prepared for the vertical evacuation.

Extra abdominal belts

Since you are dealing with a larger individual, the patient needs to be firmly fixated onto the mattress. This prevents the patient from moving or slipping down during an vertical evacuation via staircases.

For that reason, extra abdominal belts were added to firmly fixate the patient onto the mattress. It’s crucial to fixate as tightly as possible. Therefore it is recommended to perform this step with two people. This also provides extra comfort for the patient.

Speed. Simplicity. Comfort.

What’s the philosophy behind the device?

In case of an emergency evacuation, it should be your number one priority to get bedridden patients out of the building. Especially when patients have a bariatric size, they cannot do this alone. Care workers and staff will need to help. Without an evacuation device, this is almost impossible.

The Bariatric S-CAPEPOD is permanently placed underneath the mattress. The patient neither sees it, nor feels it. Due to its intuitive design, the patient will be ready for evacuation in about 60 seconds.

“I experienced the effectiveness and simplicity of the Bariatric S-CAPEPOD on several occasions. I am very enthusiastic, but it also gives me great peace of mind that it’s now available for bariatric patients. During the development, Tetcon also really thought about how to make it as comfortable as possible for the users and that they do not need to be afraid during the evacuation of bariatric individuals.
