AliMed Releases New Bariatrics Catalog

Las Vegas, June 22, 2010, — AliMed announced the release of a new 120-page Bariatrics catalog during the 27th annual meeting of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). The catalog features a wide range of bariatric products specific to healthcare facilities.

On announcing the catalog’s release, Vice President of Sales and Marketing Jon Bretz said, “Unlike other bariatric catalogs that manufacturers put out to showcase their product range, this catalog also includes products from numerous vendors. Our customers like choices, and that’s what this catalog is all about.”

Bariatrics catalog was created in response to the obesity epidemic and how it impacts patient care in facilities across the US. According to AliMed reps, most facilities are not properly equipped to handle a growing volume of larger patients, and their visitors, as most products and equipment are designed for the median weight.

“Our customers have been buying more and more bariatric products for both patient care and general facility use,” said Bretz. “They are buying products that strengthen and enhance their current equipment, bringing them up to par with bariatric specifications.”
AliMed’s comprehensive Bariatrics catalog also includes a range of products, including full replacement equipment, hygiene aids, bariatric patient handling, and many other bariatric-specific items.
