With colour coded cross straps which keep the person securely cocooned and the bodyweight held in place, making the movement of the Bariatric EvacMat more stable.

The Bariatric Evacuation Mat is designed to assist designated moving and handling staff and emergency service personnel to evacuate a bariatric patient, resident or a person from locations such as a hospital ward, nursing home, public building or private home in the event of an emergency. Safe load tested to over 500kg with a manufacturer’s recommended maximum load of 350kg with a minimum of 6 rescuers using the Bariatric EvacMat. You should liaise with your manual handling advisor about forming a policy on how many staff should be available to use this product.


The unique design of the Bariatric Evacmat securely cocoons the individual and holds their body weight in place, to help overcome problems associated with body mass stabilisation and make the movement of the EvacMat more stable. Colour coded cross straps enable quick, easy fastening.

Capable of assisting with horizontal and vertical evacuation, the EvacMat incorporates multiple ladder handles and positioning handles to help personnel to adopt a good working posture, reducing the risk of injury to themselves. Anchor points allow for the use of ropes during difficult stair descents.

Its strong slippery base enables the mat to move over indoor and outdoor surfaces. Other features include a foot pocket, internal pillow and integral carry bag
