The Mangar Elk Emergency Lifting Cushion is widely used and recommended by most UK NHS Ambulance Trusts as a key piece of emergency equipment.
The Mangar Elk Emergency Lifting Cushion is widely used and recommended by most UK NHS Ambulance Trusts as a key piece of emergency equipment. The Mangar Elk is a highly compact, portable lifting cushion that has been designed to help a patient get safely back to their feet following a fall. Highly versatile the Mangar Elk is ideal for use both indoors and outdoors and thanks to its highly compact size it is particularly useful in small rooms or tight spaces. Designed to be used with the help of a carer, the person that has fallen is gently rolled onto the lifting cushion and helped to a sitting position. Once the patient is in a seated position the Elk gradually inflates by the touch of a button, whilst the carer stands behind the patient to support them until they are in a high enough raised position to stand. Using the Mangar Elk Emergency Lifting Cushion greatly reduces the risk of accidents or injuries for both the user and the carer, risks that can be particularly high when assisting heavier users.
