About Sizewise

With many bed frame options, countless support surfaces, and patented mobility equipment, we have the depth and breadth of product that a facility needs to ensure the full spectrum of patient care.

  • First full-body lateral rotation mattress with 1,000 lb. capacity – Big Turn™
  • First “tilt-to-stand” wheelchair with 1,000 lb. capacity – Shuttle B Series™
  • First low bed with 850 lb. capacity – Low Boy®
  • First to develop “green” surfaces that reduce harmful chemical exposure for patients and caregivers – Envy Line™ G Series™

Made in the USA

Sizewise manufactures all of its equipment in the United States, at facilities in Kansas, Texas, and California. Being made in the USA is more than just good business—it makes for quality products. In healthcare, more than any other industry, clinicians need to count on quality, reliability, and proven outcomes. And because we believe American-made products are superior, we offer some of the most durable warranties in the industry.

Green Initiatives

Sizewise works hard to establish environmentally conscious manufacturing practices. As part of our Green Policy, we have implemented numerous initiatives, including:

  • Cardboard – We recycle all cardboard, and purchase recycled cardboard for shipping needs.
  • Cleaning – Our metal cleaning process switched from phosphate cleaning to a coating process, which has less environmental impact.
  • Gas Usage – We reduced gas used to heat cleaning tanks by lowering the temperature for one tank and eliminating heat entirely for another.
  • Green Products – Our Envy line of specialty surfaces are free of carcinogens, latex, mercury, PBTs, and reproductive toxins. This makes them safer for both patients and caregivers.
  • Lighting – We replaced all lighting within our 200,000+ sq. ft. manufacturing space with more energy-efficient lighting.
  • Paint – Our paint shop switched from aerosolized painting to a powder coating process.
  • Plastics – We use a blend of virgin and recycled plastic for all molded parts.
  • Steel – All steel runoff is sent to a company certified in recycling.
  • Water – Our Hays, KS manufacturing facility reduced water consumption by 8x by utilizing well water instead of treated city water, reducing energy and helping Sizewise re-use and recycle water in the process.
