S-CAPEPOD Bariatric Evacuation Sledge

Bedridden patients are extremely vulnerable in emergency scenarios, since they often can't move on their own, let alone escape in evacuations. Bariatric patients are even more susceptible to serious injury or worse, which is where the S-CAPEPOD Bariatric Evacuation Sledge comes in handy. Quite literally a lifesaver, this mattress allows medical staff to protect patients of up to 300kg through rapid evacuation with a simple design for easy carrying.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Bariatric Evacuation Sledge

  • Suitable for evacuations downstairs for people who struggle with stairs

What Is the Weight Capacity of the Bariatric Evacuation Sledge?

Designed for heavier patients, the Bariatric S-CAPEPOD offers a maximum user weight capacity of 300kg.

How Does the S-CAPEPOD Work?

Intended for use with bedridden or immobile patients, the S-CAPEPOD is unfolded and fitted around the patient while they remain on the bed mattress. The side flaps and foot-end section envelope the patient to ensure they are as safe and secure as possible during an evacuation.

The Evacuation Sledge is held securely together by the heavy-duty hook-and-loop fixation system. The hand-hold straps can then be used to manoeuvre the patient and mattress together to a safe location. Please see the PDF below for instructions on how to use the S-CAPEPOD, as well as a list of safety information.
