Safe Patient Lifting

Mangar Health is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and supply of inflatable moving and handling equipment, including our safe patient lifting device range.

We understand that moving and handling patients can not only be distressing and undignified but can also increase the risk of injuries associated with hazardous manual lifting techniques.

Mangar Health Products

The Mangar ELK and Camel are emergency lifting devices designed to lift the frailest individual to a bariatric patient from the floor in a safe and dignified manner. The ease of use means that a person can be lifted with the help of one person, minimising the risk of injury to both the fallen individual and the person lifting them.

Single-Handed Care

The Mangar ELK and Camel Lifting Cushions are safe patient lifting devices designed for single handed care, designed to lift someone who has fallen with just the help of one person.
