"I searched on internet for moths and months for an inflatable cushion. I could not find it.
I even asked several technical people to build one for me. Which also did not work.
Just by coincidence i found, on internet, the raiser lifting cushion. I ordered the cushion and i received it .
It works SEN-SA-TI-O-NAL for me and the cushion will change my life in a very, very, very positive way."
"Helpful advice. Prompt delivery. Very good product. "

"Very pleased with the service received from Mangar"
"I am very pleased with the service I get from you. Thank you very much. "
Mrs E Shirley,
"Very happy with service. Quick, reliable, friendly. "
"We received a complaint from a member of the public that an elderly relative had fallen in the hospital during visiting time. They had asked staff for help to get up and been lifted using a hoist.
This had caused the elderly visitor some distress. They felt a hoist was undignified and shouldn’t be used on ‘non-patients’.
I had come across the Mangar Camel before and recognised that for uninjured people who have fallen, an inflatable lifting cushion provides a comfortable, dignified lift while still protecting staff from injury.
I recommended the introduction of Camels into our hospitals. We now keep the lifting cushions stored centrally and easily accessible on medical wards."
Kevin, Good Hope Hospital
"Using the Mangar lifting cushions means our residents can be raised to their feet with minimal fuss. They are comfortable, dignified and don’t feel as though they are causing a scene and upsetting fellow residents. This means anxiety levels are kept to a minimum, which is vital for anyone with dementia."
Delroy Bonnitto, Perry Tree Centre
"More often than not, if we call an ambulance they will take the resident to hospital to be checked out, which means they may spend many hours waiting in A&E.
The Camel lifting cushion has given us the option of performing the lift ourselves, with minimal fuss and in no time at all a resident can safely return to their apartment or bedroom."
Cathy Goldsmith, Richmond Retirement Village
"As I lost the ability to move my legs myself, getting into bed became a task we struggled with each evening. The Leglifter not only does the job but also means I am happy in the knowledge that my carers are not going to be injured while helping me."
"Our telecare service is a great way of supporting vulnerable people to live well in their own home. When someone falls we respond quickly and as long as they are uninjured, use the ELK lifting cushion to raise them off the floor.
We rely on the ELK lifting cushion for every lift we do, even when the fall has happened in a confined space such as a bathroom or kitchen."
