Your Donations in Action: Motorised Bariatric Wheelchair

We are proud to share a significant addition to the Andover War Memorial Hospital’s patient care resources – a cutting-edge motorised bariatric wheelchair, generously donated by the Anton Rotary Club

This state-of-the-art equipment showcases a pivotal step towards addressing the evolving needs of patients with limited mobility. With a maximum capacity of 325kg, the wheelchair offers a lifeline for individuals requiring bariatric support, ensuring inclusivity and dignity in care delivery.

One of the standout features of this wheelchair is its integrated push motor, meticulously designed to alleviate strain on porter shoulders and wrists. This not only enhances operational efficiency but also prioritises the safety and well-being of healthcare professionals, mitigating occupational hazards and promoting sustainable caregiving practices.

For patients in need of bariatric support or enhanced mobility assistance, the wheelchair offers not only physical comfort but also a profound sense of dignity and reassurance. It stands as a testament to the transformative impact of collaborative efforts in advancing healthcare accessibility and inclusivity.

We would like to thank the Anton Rotary Club for their generosity and commitment to community welfare. Their donation of this wheelchair embodies the Rotary Club’s ethos of service above self, serving as a beacon of hope and compassion for those in need.
