With the number of people in the UK who are obese or morbidly obese steadily rising, the need for care environments either in domestic properties or commercial care homes that caters for Bariatric patients is most certainly increasing. AGA Mobility have over 40 years’ experience providing specialist care equipment and facilities for domestic and care environments that require a functional and practical Bariatric solution.
This kind of restricted mobility is common, and requires a unique approach to providing lifting, toileting and pressure care solutions that will create
a degree of comfort and independence for the individual. Very often obesity comes with other conditions that need to be considered as part of the care provision, and AGA Mobility will work with Care Professionals to provide the very best advice for equipment and adaptations.
