Finding the right bariatric beds for your Australian patients can often be a challenging undertaking.
Extra care must be implemented to ensure that you are choosing beds that are not only comfortable for bariatric patients but which can also be safely and easily operated by care providers. If your Australian hospital or medical clinic is serious about providing quality care for its bariatric patients, then investing in top quality bariatric beds is an absolute must. At Midmed, we supply Sizewise and Proma Reha bariatric beds suitable for a range of patients and treatments. In this article, we have outlined the most beneficial features of our bariatric beds, and how they can expedite your patient’s recovery.
Low beds for bariatric patients
Low beds reduce the risk of patient falls and offer an ergonomic design which enhances convenience for both patient and care provider.
Sizewise Bariatric Behavioural Bed
The Sizewise Bariatric Behavioural Bed is ideal of dual-diagnosis patients who require more sophisticated features than those which a standard platform bed can offer. This fully electric bed provides enhanced security features, including footboard nursing lockout controls and tamper-resistant encased wiring. The importance of patient and care provider safety is reflected in this bed’s superior features. The Sizewise Bariatric Behavioural Bed will accommodate patients up to 385KG and has a very low deck height of just 19.05cm for ease of access.
Sizewise Bariatric Low Boy Bed

The Low Boy is the ultimate bed for fall prevention and safe patient handling in Australian hospitals. It can be modified into a cardiac chair position, as well as 20° Trendelenburg and Reverse Trendelenburg. Patients can be transported with the Low Boy fixed in any height position, to reduce the risk of injury to care providers.
