"Excellent product, great service and rapid delivery. Would highly recommend "
"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
"In my opinion, using an ELK is a far more dignified way to bring a fallen resident to an upright position. It would be my choice for client’s with any cognitive impairment and those were being manually handled is a trigger to behaviour."
Geniene Thorgersen, Physiotherapist and Worplace Trainer
"when I purchased an Elk from your stockist recently it was as a precaution, and not with the intention of using it in the near future. However, my wife’s crutch slipped on Thursday afternoon and she fell. Compared with what we’ve been through on previous occasions when that happened, last Thursday was a doddle. A marvelous product!”"
Mr D Bristol,
"I have secondary progressive Multiple Sclerosis and quite often fall out of my wheelchair due to my chemotherapy treatment. I now use a very simple device called the ‘Camel’ to get me up from the floor to my wheelchair very easily. The ‘Camel’ (Complete Air Moving Elevating Lift) uses low air pressure to inflate it first to sit me up and then to raise me to a height where I can transfer. In my situation 2 people are needed to assist me, but the ‘Camel’ is very simple and easy to use and requires minimal instruction to operate it. The ‘Camel’ chair lift is a fantastic piece of equipment."
"The bathing cushion continues to be essential to me."
"The service of all your staff has been first-class throughout, very helpful and extremely quick. Thank you."
