  • COT (College of Occupational Therapists) accredited Continuing professional development (CPD) workshops in falls
  • Product literature, which includes product technical specifications (downloadable pdfs available)
  • Product awareness events
  • Product demonstrations
  • Joint home visits and assessments

Our Products

Like you, we are committed to supplying a range of assistive patient lifting technology equipment enabling people to live safely and successfully in their own homes. Our priorities are to allow people to retain their independence and dignity whilst at the same time reducing the risk of strain and injury for those caring for them.

Our national sales team are available for product demonstrations and joint assessments. If you are new to Mangar products or would like to assess a client for suitability, please get in touch.

To get an overview of the total Mangar product portfolio we can arrange a product awareness event at your place of work. Events usually last half a day but can be scheduled to suit your availability. A Mangar representative will provide an overview of our manual handling devices and encourage you to try them yourself. This is a free, no obligation chance to get close up with our products and really test them to see if they will be useful for you and your clients.
