Adiposity Products

With a support load of up to 300 kg

Every sixth person in Europe is now considered obese. The tendency to be massively overweight is increasing. Special adaptations are required in clinics or even nursing wards to care for people with obesity: more stable operating tables, wider beds, special lift systems and larger movement areas in the bathroom are just a few examples of what is required to care for obese patients. Extremely overweight people are severely restricted in their mobility. Especially for these patients, HEWI has developed products which promote mobility and thus independence and offer reliable support. The sanitary range is made of high-quality polyamide and has a support load of up to 300 kg.

Hinged support rails

The hinged support rails is reinforced by an additional wall and floor support and has a steel core. Two gripping levels support movement sequences in the bathroom. The polyamide surface creates a pleasant feel. The folding support handle is particularly space-saving: it can be folded upwards and turned towards the wall.

Shower bench

A shower bench not only offers a sufficiently large seating area, it also has integrated handles. These make it easier to sit down and get up. Shower benches are also flexible in use. Due to the steel core and additional reinforcement of the seat, the shower bench can be loaded up to 300 kg

Grab rail in the colour white
Grab handle

Grab handles offer reliable support in all areas of the sanitary room. A cross-section that is optimally adapted to the hand promotes effective power transmission. A wider distance to the wall allows an increased gripping range so that obese patients can also safely grasp the grab bar. A steel core inside the grab bar and steel fastening rosettes increase the stability.
