Inflatable mattresses

These are suitable for lateral patient transfer while lying down. They can be used as an alternative to a transfer board and slide sheets and are effective for reducing friction, and thus the load on carers during lateral transfers.

Lifting devices – Mangar

Air-assisted lifting device “Mangar” can be used to raise clients from the floor to a sitting position by pumping air into a mattress that has multiple layers. They are very useful and offer a comfortable and dignified solution for lifting a fallen person from the floor.

It is common to find out that after a certain age many people struggle to get back onto their feet after a fall. Many of them require the assistance of a carer or person that is able to lift them without harming the fallen person or the carer.

ELK and CAMEL CUSHIONS

Both, the Elk and Camel cushions give the patient a remarkable and comfortable lifting experience. It takes only a moment for the cushion to fully inflate and become as supportive as any other platform or transfer board.

The unique Camel inflatable lifting chair is designed to sit up and lift a fallen person from the floor either independently or assisted and offers a comfortable and dignified solution to lifting someone and is the perfect alternative to a traditional hoist. The Camel is operated by low air pressure using the Airflo power source.

The Mangar ELK emergency lifting cushion lifts a fallen person simply and safely minimising moving, handling and transfer risks. The Mangar ELK is used and recommended by many institutions as key equipment to lift a fallen person. Operated by low air pressure using the Airflo power source.

There are increasing numbers of people admitted to hospitals after a fall. Did you know that after falling once, there is a 60% chance of having another fall, which might lead to loss of confidence and reduction of activities. These cushions are helping patients to live as comfortable life as possible without loosing their confidence in any activities.
