    Camel Lifting Cushion

    The Camel is an emergency lifting cushion that provides a safe, dignified lift with the help of just one healthcare professional. It is recognised for protecting healthcare staff from manual handling related injuries as it reduces the need for manual handling and minimises the risk of back injury caused by lifting.

    Benefits of the Camel

    The Camel is designed to lift a fallen individual from the floor at the touch of a button. The lift can easily be carried out with the help of one person, reducing the risk of injury to both the fallen patient and the medical professional that is assisting with the lift. The inbuilt backrest gives patients a re-assuring chair-like feel, providing a fully supportive lift for a plus size person weighing up to 50 stone.

    Who can use it?

    The Camel lifting cushion is ideal for hospital nurses and care staff lifting patients and visitors who may have fallen. It is suitable for use with both injured and non-injured individuals including:

    • Patients suffering from neurological disorders such as MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Epilepsy, Huntington’s disease and Stroke.
    • Individuals who experience limited mobility as a result of physical disability.
    • People who may have complex needs – the Mangar Camel is ideal for lifting anyone who may move around a lot during a lift.
    • The elderly, who are 50% more prone to falls after the age of 80.
    • Bariatric or plus size patients who may find it difficult to get back on their feet after a fall – even though they may be uninjured.

    Special features

    • The Camel’s inbuilt backrest offers a fully supportive lift for people weighing up to 320kg, with minimal moving and manual handling required.
    • The lifting cushion is both lightweight and portable (weighing only 6.5kgs/ 14 lbs). It comes in a handy carry bag
    • It is safe to be used either inside or outside in situations where alternative lifting devices may not be suitable.
    • There are no dangerous cables around the lifting cushion as the Camel is inflated using battery operated Airflow compressor.
