The B.E.A.R. Bariatric Equalizing Abdominal Restraint from Emergency Medical Products is an innovative product that attaches to conventional ambulance cots and longboards to accommodate and stabilize the large abdominal mass of an extra large/bariatric patient. The product helps a bariatric patient feel stable, comfortable and safe. Patient anxiety is reduced, making the transport easier on everyone involved. In addition, the B.E.A.R. stabilizes the abdominal mass relative to the cot, reducing the risk of injury to the transport team.
