The Mangar Elk is an emergency lifting device that uses an innovative air powered cushion designed to inflate and gradually lift a fallen person up off the floor.
Risk of injury to the carer is greatly reduced as the need to manual lift is no longer there.
The Elk is ideal for a home setting because it can be used in confined spaces to lift people who have fallen (e.g. bathrooms, hallways and dining rooms).
Its ease of use means it is suitable for those not professionally medically trained in the role of carer such as a family member supporting a loved one with a health condition that affects their likelihood of falling.
The Camel can be used anywhere, indoors or outside, and will lift a fallen person with dignity whilst protecting both the carer and the person being lifted from injury.
The Camel is particularly suitable for larger people but can also be used for those who prefer extra back support.
