Ten years ago while working as a Paramedic, my partner and I were called to do a routine transport of an obese patient out of the CCU. During the transport, tragedy was avoided, inspiring the creation of the BEAR. Now after 8 years on the market and thousands sold, we thank our dedicated friends and the support of the EMS community nation wide for making  BEAR-iatrics Inc. the leader in obese and bariatric transport equipment.
