"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."
"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 Bathing Cushion is wonderful! I have had my first bath in 6 years (due to disability) and it was so comfortable. Without it I cannot get in and out of the bath. I would not hesitate to recommend your products to anyone with disability"
"They say Miracles seldom happen but for me the Mangar Bathing Cushion is one. Increasingly crippled by Arthritis I found it agony to climb into my ancient narrow bathtub but now I can sit comfortably back and be lifted into the bath and when I am ready lifted out agin. It does all the work for me in blissful comfort."
