Caregivers and nurses should be able to work safely and ergonomically, using mechanical equipment and working methods that are optimised for bariatric care.

Caregivers will recognise many aspects of the Tenor® from working with other ArjoHuntleigh mobile lifts: easy to apply slings, simple handheld control unit and ergonomically sound procedures. All bariatric slings are colour-coded to make size selection as easy as possible.

Improving efficiency

The Tenor is a highly efficient solution for transferring and positioning bariatric residents/patients. The combination of the new four-point spreader bar’s widely spaced shoulder attachment points and the extended boom length ensures that residents/patients can be transferred in comfort and, if necessary, repositioned through 360º for access to a bed, chair or wheelchair. One major advantage with the Tenor system is its mobility – it can provide good coverage in bariatric care, as it can be easily moved to wherever it is needed.
