We currently offer this service to both the acute and community health sectors in Northern Ireland. By using this service it will allow Health Trusts to assess patients correctly to ensure that equipment is suitable for their needs. Our service has been designed to help with weighing all types of patients and includes bariatric/plus size patients, with scales capable of weighing up to 800kg with a 500g reflection.

Weighing of patients would usually take place with a hoist fitted with scales which can be very difficult with bariatric/plus size patients. By using Abbey Medicare’s weighing service you are reducing the stress being caused to the patient. The risk of injury to staff through manual handling will also be reduced as the weighing is carried out by trained technicians and can be done by using bed scales or wheelchair scales.

Abbey Medicare can offer a range of different prices, including contracted pricing for Health Trusts.


Around 75% of our business is maintaining and servicing specialist medical equipment, ensuring that everything we provide is working as it should, so nothing impedes what the customer has come to rely upon.
