    Transfer Belt

    SKU: HG0024

    Used for support when being guided from the Mangar lifting cushions to other apparatus such as a wheelchair or stretcher.

    This is good for patients who have mobility, but they may need a little bit of extra support. They can still walk but it just helps the carer to have a better grip on the patient to slowly guide them through their movements.

    The belt is adjusted and buckled around the patient’s waist, enabling the carer to reach the handles, and with comfortable padding and material that grips to patients clothing it is comfortable for them and does not slip.

    • Comfortable padding
    • Material grips to clothes and doesn’t ride up
    • Adjustable belt
    • Not to lift the patient but it is to guide and support them
    Are there different sizes of lifting cushions?

    We have an ELK, an Eagle and a Camel lifting cushion. The ELK will lift 450 KG or 980lbs, the Eagle will lift 190 KG or 420lbs, and the Camel will lift 350 KG or 700lbs. For each cushion, one size fits all and no additional accessories are required. In some circumstances a slide sheet, transfer board or transfer belt may be required to assist a transfer.

    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 often should the lifting cushion be serviced?

    We recommend servicing your lifting cushion every 12 months.
