Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Graham-Field to offer their Lumex Bariatric Recliner to a larger consumer base. GF Health Products, Incorporated (Graham-Field), is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, and is one of the world's leading manufacturers and distributors of top quality medical products in the healthcare industry. With manufacturing facilities in various locations, including Wisconsin and Rhode Island, and distribution centers in Georgia, Missouri, New Jersey, California and Wisconsin, Graham-Field offers about 4,000 medical, rehabilitation, long-term care and home-care products. They have created numerous quality brands, such as Everest & Jennings, Lumex, Basic American, John Bunn, Labtron, Grafco and Lumiscope that offer a wide array of products, from wheelchair and specialty seating products to respiratory equipment to beds and institutional equipment to diagnostics.
The Lumex Bariatric Recliner Geri-Chair that Rehabmart.com now offers from Graham-Field is the perfect choice for larger users. With its heavy-gauge steel frame construction, this chair can accommodate weight of up to 700 pounds. Fully equipped with a rechargeable battery pack, this chair can operate with or without electricity, and four swivel casters facilitate easy transport and maneuverability in tight spaces. A four-function hand pendant activates the chair, allowing for caregivers to safely raise and recline their patients without strain, offering the positional care required during therapy or treatments. The quick-release trigger mechanism on the push handle allows the chair to swiftly transition into the Trendelenburg position. The backrest and leg rest rise and lower independently, allowing the user or caregiver complete control over positioning options.
This bariatric recliner, like all of the Lumex Clinical Care Recliners, is equipped with LiquiCell and AEGIS Microbe Shield technologies. An ultra thin, liquid filled interface, LiquiCell is specifically designed and proven to significantly reduce shear stress, which aids in the prevention of pressure sores and general discomfort. AEGIS Microbe Shield works by chemically bonding itself to the treated surface and rupturing the membranes of any bacteria that it comes in contact with, thereby inhibiting microbial growth. “We are delighted to introduce the Lumex Bariatric Recliner Geri-Chair from Graham-Field to more consumers”, said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “This highly durable and extremely well-constructed chair offers unsurpassed quality and function for the larger user, featuring support and comfort in all the right places for bariatric patients. Caregivers will love it, too, as it has been specially designed to more easily administer therapies or treatments, with a multitude of adjustments available to personalize it to each patient, ensuring a perfect fit for all!”
