“Bari Buddy™” appears to be just a teddy bear, but is, in fact, a specially designed pillow to help you cough and deep-breathe after Bariatric surgery.
“Bari Buddy™” is designed to have a firm, but flexible flat back, so that he can serve as a splinting device for the patient’s incision. He is totally machine washable, dryable and flame retardant.
Recovery from bariatric surgery is just as much a psychological process as a physical one. Patients often feel vulnerable, as if they have lost control of their lives. “Bari Buddy” also has proven to be a great comfort if a patient suffers from post-operative depression. It becomes a very special gift to give a patient, another tool that helps them through their surgery, and a reminder of your commitment to them and their success.
