Benmor Medical has designed the bari-suit®, a bariatric training suit, which will help nursing staff develop the specific skills required to safely and effectively manage bariatric patients, by allowing them to practise techniques using realistic scenarios within a safe environment.
Designed to be worn by nursing staff during training sessions the bari-suit® comprises of 3 realistic body sections (arms, torso and legs) which allow the wearer to experience first-hand the mobility restrictions an obese patient faces on a daily basis, whilst providing their colleagues with a pseudo bariatric patient to practise moving and handling techniques without endangering themselves.
The bari-suit® mimics the proportions, shape and movement of a bariatric patient ensuring that it is particularly useful for staff training of patient transfers and correct use of moving and handling equipment.
The bari-suit® weighs approximately 12-15kg.
