    Raiser Lifting Cushion + Airflo 12

    SKU: MPCA200500

    Perfect for those living in their own homes that require assistance when standing up from a chair using single handed care techniques, the Raiser Lifting Cushion is designed to fit the shape of a standard chair and won’t require any replacement furniture. It will fit comfortably under a seat cushion or throw, so even if you’re not using the seat the Raiser can easily be left in place.

    Features include:

    • Other than easy routine cleaning and disinfecting, the Raiser Lifting Cushion is maintenance free.
    • The Raiser is small so can easily be stored away when not in use, or can be used while travelling.
    • Powered by the Mangar Health Airflo 12 battery powered compressor.
    • Can be used underneath or on top of a cushion or blanket.
    • Inflates and deflates at the push of a button.
    • Can also be used to lower someone into a seat.

    What material is it made from?

    The lifting cushions are made from a polyurethane coated nylon fabric, which is a hydrophobic material and does not absorb fluids.

    How often should the lifting cushion be serviced?

    We recommend servicing your lifting cushion every 12 months.

    Can I over inflate my lifting cushion?

    No. The Airflo 24 will stop once full pressure is realized.

    Can I lift someone supine (lying down) on the lifting cushion?

    Yes. This lift with the Mangar Elk is performed in conjunction with a scoop or transfer board. Our Camel and Eagle lifting cushions can lift someone from a lying or sitting position.

    How do I clean my lifting cushion?

    The lifting cushions should be cleaned when inflated. Sponge clean with a detergent solution and dry thoroughly before storing in a dry place. The lifting cushions are ultrasonically welded so there is no stitching or gaps when germs can collect. To disinfect use a disinfecting solution or alcohol impregnated wipe.

    What happens if I get a puncture?

    The incidences of puncture are rare. If a puncture does occur, then only the section of cushion with the damage would be affected – the remaining three will still operate. The lifting cushion will not burst like a balloon and there is no risk of injury to the patient from a rapid descent. If the puncture is small, then the cushion would still work though there would be an audible leak. Punctures cannot be repaired due to the pressure and load and damaged units have to be replaced.

    What sort of ground can lifting cushions be used on outside?

    The lifting cushions can be used on any type of surface but do look out for broken glass or sharp stones which could puncture the cushions. We advise putting a small tarpaulin or mat underneath the lifting cushion in these circumstances.

    What lifespan does the lifting cushion have?

    We expect lifting cushions (excluding batteries) will last seven years.

    What is the highest and lowest outside temperature I can use my lifting cushion in?

    The optimal temperature to reach the maximum number of lifts is between 95F (35C) and 41F (5C).

    How many lifts do I get from one charge?

    Depending on the weight of the person, on average you will be able to complete 4 lifts per charge with the Camel, 8 transfers with the ELK and 6 transfers with the Eagle.
