NewLeaf's bariatric beds offer Extra Wide sleep surfaces designed to meet the needs of larger people—typically 42", 48", 54" or 60" widths. We recommend using our "Sort Filter by" options on the left side of this page (if on a mobile device, see Show Filters) to help narrow your search to Features and Brands. NewLeaf represents only the top manufacturers in the bariatric category Big Boyz BedsDrive MedicalDynarexInvacare, and Probasics. Each of these manufacturer's beds are constructed to meet durability standards to support heavy weight loads, as well as provide fully powered Head, Legs and Overall Height adjustability to help maximize comfort and reduce the chance of caregiver injuries that can occur with patient transfers, turning and repositioning, bathing and more.

When placing a bariatric bed in a room, remember to ensure that there is a sufficient amount of space around the bed to accomplish whatever clinical or nursing tasks may arise. Generally, a clearance of five feet on each side as well as at the foot of the bariatric bed would allow enough room for any task that may need to be completed. Electrically operated beds provide a very comfortable sleeping position.

When it comes to managing circulatory and respiratory problems and ensure pressure relief, your bed can be bundled with a Bariatric Deluxe High Density Foam Mattress or Bariatric Alternating Pressure Mattress. This will ensure that your circulation and pressure management needs are being met to reduce the chances of developing skin breakdown and pressure ulcers.
