Bariatric Chair/Stretcher Comes With IV Rod and Oxygen Holder. This uniquely designed chair converts to a rolling stretcher with the flip of a switch. The chair supports up to 850 lb, and includes independently adjustable foot and leg rests and armrests. The back has an electrically driven recline function and is infinitely adjustable. Uses 12V rechargeable battery. Fully charged battery lasts for approximately 75 cycles. Seat: 31″W; Overall: 39″W. Bariatric Chair/Stretcher

The unique CareChair adjusts from full upright sitting position to full stretcher, and everything in-between. This allows the patient to gradually adjust from supine to upright, or to be put into a supine position for treatment or emergency care. The control is a simple battery powered switch on the back, and allows infinite and gradual back positioning.

The CareChair is in use in the following departments: ICU, CCU, Med-Surg, Urology, Neurology, Orthopedics, Psychiatric; and in Hospital, Long Term Care and Home settings.


The CareChair is so versatile it is used in all hospital settings. Various position adjustments provide maximum patient comfort, especially for those with respiratory disorders, head and neck injuries or orthopedic problems.

During an emergency the CareChair is quick and easy to convert from a chair to a stretcher making it indispensable in an ICU, CCU or emergency room. It’s comfort features and maneuverability in tight spaces make it an excellent choice when patients need to be moved in crowded high-traffic areas or must occupy the unit for a long time.

Perfect for Home Health Care
The CareChair also makes perfect sense for home caregivers. Its 18-inch wide seat will fit through most home doorways. Caregivers experience no back strain when transferring a patient to and from bed to the CareChair and it reduces the number of people required to attend to a loved one. Multiple positions allow a patient to move easily from sitting upright, to lounging comfortably, to lying down. The CareChair will fit into most wheelchair-lift equipped vans giving patients greater mobility. Best of all, loved ones can be cared for at home, requiring reduced hospital stays and delaying transfer to a nursing home.

Benefits greatly outweigh the cost of the CareChair

Used by hospitals and medical centers around the country the CareChair is a self-contained medical transport system. When properly stocked it becomes a mobile first-aid treatment center. The CareChair contributes greatly to patient comfort and well-being. It helps prevent back injuries since patients no longer need to be lifted from their bed to a chair. And the cost savings from just one prevented back injury can cover the cost of a CareChair.

The electrically controlled care chair has three controls.

The power box underneath the main frame has a red handle circuit breaker mounted on the side of the box. This handle must be in the on (up) position for the unit to operate.
The unit may be converted to the stretcher position (horizontal) by pushing down on the top toggle switch handle located on the back frame near the main handle.
There is a slight delay between the time the switch is activated and the back moves. This is normal and should cause no concern.
The unit may be converted back to the chair position by pushing up on the top toggle switch handle.
The lower toggle switch (see fig 2) tilts the chair. Pushing down on the toggle switch tilts the chair back. Pushing up on the toggle switch tilts the chair forward.

When the electric actuators reach their limit in either their up or down position, a mechanical ratcheting noise will be heard. This is normal and indicates the travel limit.


Battery charger - a fully charged battery will support in excess of 75 complete cycles of the operation of the care chair. When the operation of the care chair slows down it is time to charge the battery. Plug the supplied charger into a 120 VAC wall socket. About 12 hours of charging will normally fully charge the battery.

A good operating procedure is to charge the unit when not in use. You cannot overcharge the system by leaving the charger plugged into the unit.
