Interlude 500 Bariatric Bed

Introducing the New Interlude 500 Bariatric Bed which enables the patient to preserve their dignity with it being able to drop as low as 21cms as well as support a weight up to 460kgs.

Caring for bariatric patients is very much a growing necessary challenge for today’s healthcare providers. This is especially so in the hospital environment, where the increasing population of larger patients places considerable pressure on available resources. Our Interlude 500 Care Bed is a heavy-duty bed that has been designed to blend in with other beds used in the care environment to help preserve the patients sense of dignity while delivering the functionality required by caregivers to manage patients weighing up to 460kg.

Caring for bariatric patients often requires the help of additional staff to ensure care tasks are completed but without appropriate equipment this can place caregivers and patients at increased risk of injury. This is why the Interlude 500 bed can be lowered to just 21cms from the ground – enabling a much more comforting experience when transferring a patient.

Interlude 500 Bed

Subtle & Stylish

The Interlude 500 Bariatric Bed has an extra low patient positioning (patient surface height is 21 cm) which significantly reduces the risk of injuries in case of falling out of the bed, especially during the night. The bed features a safe working load of 500kg, with the patient limit of up to 460kgs, with the each part of the bed also being tested for weight limits (the bed is divided into 3 sections) –

  • Backrest 225 kg
  • Seat section 125 kg
  • Legs section 150 kg

The bed can be easily expanded in width and can accommodate mattresses of 91 cms (36 inches), 99cms (39 inches), 107cms (42 inches), 122cm (48 inches) and 137cms (54 inches). With its ultra-quiet DC motor this bed helps to maintain a calm and relaxed environment. The Interlude 500 also has an emergency battery for temporary autonomy, 2 pairs of half-length composite side-rails which are easy to operate and maintain with quick connect components.
