QuickMedical Launches Line of Medical Equipment for Bariatric Care
Date:1/2/2013

Issaquah, WA (PRWEB) January 02, 2013

According to QuickMedical, America is now facing an obesity epidemic. A research team at John Hopkins University predicted that 86% of adults in the United States could be overweight by the year 2030.

The increased need for bariatric equipment will continue to be a growing necessity in all healthcare settings: rehabilitation centers, hospitals, long-term and home care facilities.

QuickMedical foresaw the need to provide healthcare professionals with the highest quality bariatric care medical equipment. With the complete line of Gendron medical equipment, QuickMedical can now offer healthcare professionals access to the latest in bariatric care medical equipment.

Healthcare professionals are caring for heavier and larger patients, and therefore are subject to injury. Healthcare professionals who must provide personal care, mobility and activities for all clients are now faced with a number of new patient care issues. What must professionals do to provide services to the bariatric patient? What is the cost? What can be done to improve the patient care situation for this population?

"Our goal is to provide medical equipment that is specially tailored and designed for the bariatric patient," said Loren Timmons, Medical Director at QuickMedical. "Healthcare staff and the facilities they work for must be proactive and have a strategy to meet the special needs of the morbidly obese patient."

A number of studies have suggested that a no-lift environment is possible with the right planning and equipment; QuickMedical and Gendron can help with both the planning and the equipment.

Further, there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that suggests a higher number of back-injury claims are filed by providers who care for the bariatric
