Invacare BARMATT Bariatric Mattresses are built for bariatric patients, those who are excessively overweight as determined by the Body Mass Index (BMI). These are made by Invacare for their Bariatric Beds, the BAR600 and BAR750. The BARMATT mattresses are suitable for total weight bearing of 750 pounds, up from the previous limit of 600 lbs.
Invacare has four models of BARMATT Bariatric Mattresses. They vary by width, corresponding to the settings of their variable-width adjustable beds: 39, 42 and 48 inches. BARMATTEXP is the expandable width model. The description of it is the same as the BARMATT39, BARMATT42 and BARMATT48. Judging by the photo, the EXP is 48" wide, adjusting to the narrower configurations by bending up at the edges. This makes it possible to leave the mattress in place while adjusting the bed in to move it through a more restricted space. The BARMATTEXP costs more than the other three models, but its flexibility saves the cost of buying two or three mattresses of different widths.
Invacare BARMATT Bariatric Mattresses are free of any materials containing latex, making them safe for clients with latex allergies. They have a flexible yet solid inner core. This core is foam with high resilience for relieving pressure for a long time.
These bariatric mattresses are covered with 11-oz. vinyl. Vinyl is easy to clean, and it is waterproof and anti-bacterial. All the BARMATT models can be flipped and rotated for even usage and longer wear.
Invacare BARMATT Bariatric Mattresses are available through authorized dealers and service centers. They are warrantied for 1 year, which may be expected considering the expected usage.
