ACT Ambulances get a fatty lifter

By johnboy - 31 July 2009 101

Simon Corbell has proudly unveiled a “bariatric ambulance” entering service in the ACT.

    “The new bariatric ambulance is a multifunctional vehicle that has the capability to transport a patient weighing up to 500 kilograms,” Mr Corbell said.

    “The transportation of obese patients is an area of growing challenge for all ambulance services and health agencies around Australia.

    “This new vehicle is leading edge in design and has an automated loading system. It will improve patient care and safety as well as substantially reduce the manual handling involved with transporting patients with special needs.”

Apparently a frontend loader with a sling is not suitable.

While not a study in slim athleticism myself, I reckon that when one can no longer fit into a standard ambulance it’s past time to make some radical lifestyle changes.
