"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."
"Our team use a Mangar Lifting Cushion to raise the fallen person from the floor. The cushions provide a safe lift for the resident but also help prevent musculoskeletal injury to our staff. Because of the amount of falls we attend, the lifting cushions are used every day and have been for nearly 10 years. They are a reliable piece of equipment that we wouldn’t be without."
Heather Rimmer, Norfolk Swift Response
"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 Mangar Lifting cushions provide a safe lift for the patient but also help prevent musculoskeletal injury to our staff."
Emergency Services Staff,
"I could not be more impressed by Daniel who I dealt with. He was very professional but also very kind and understanding and I thought he must be a real asset to your company and promoting an excellent product."
"We have already recommended Mangar to people we have met."
Mrs K Bellamy,
"My ELK has got me out of a horrific situation, I am 87, my wife 84 and very unstable and with onset Alzheimers. Lying on the cold bathroom floor, I managed to single-handedly get her up with my ELK!"
