Buyer’s Guide to Bariatric Equipment – Wt. Capacity 350+
February 10th, 2009 at 11:37 am
No matter what your weight or height or Body Mass Index (BMI), we believe the most important thing is that your products are safe and that they fit your size and your lifestyle.
Generally most products accomodate a person’s weight up to 200 or 300 lbs., but within that range and certainly beyond, it becomes very important to check the weight capacities as well as the actual size of the product. Make sure it fits in your space and you fit in its space!
