New Product Launch:

Medstrom supports the plus-size patient's clinical journey from hospital to home and beyond.

The stories of 50 of those people are told here. They come from all walks of life, age groups and circumstances. Each of their stories is as individual as they are.

Case Studies

Each person’s health journey is different, with its own set of challenges, highs and lows.

Using the right Medstrom Select equipment at the right time has given some excellent outcomes for plus-size hospital patients and community clients. We’ve worked with our customers to capture these stories in 50 anonymised case studies which we’ve brought together here. Common themes include:

  • Reduced length of stay
  • Reduced moving and handling risks
  • Reduced pressure ulcer risk
  • Time and cost savings
  • Increased patient and caregiver satisfaction

This bed and mattress give me more space so that I don’t feel restricted on movement. I think it has helped make my recovery quicker as it gave me more independence.

Ryan – Patient


  • Vanessa’s step down from coronary care and her road to recovery following a cardiac arrest (left)
  • Nigel’s utilisation of different bariatric chairs as he recovered from a spinal injury (centre)
  • Anne was able to get out of bed for the first time in nine years with the right equipment (right)

We were very happy with the service we received from Medstrom. They stepped in at very short notice and solved a major problem for us. The equipment was easy to use and Medstrom ensured we were trained.

Ward Manager

The bed and chair are comfortable, and the bed controls are easy to use. It’s been great to be able to get up and sit in the chair. It’s made me feel better and given me the confidence to go home.

Tony – Patient

Having the TurnCair 1000 mattress has been a game changer for us. My nursing team have a very happy patient and we’ve reduced the interventions, reduced the risk of manual handling injury to nurses and allowed them time to support other patients.

Ward Manager

I felt much better as soon as I was moved from the old bed to this one. I like the mattress – it’s comfortable and I’ve got so used to it now, I hardly feel the turn. It’s helped me sleep better as I don’t need to keep calling the nurses to help me.
