Patient Lifting for the NHS

The health and safety of both patients and professionals in the NHS underpin the development of our products here at Mangar.

Mangar’s unique lifting aids are proven to provide a comfortable, dignified lift while still protecting staff from injury. The importance of maintaining safety in lifting cannot be underestimated with the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) reporting that moving and handling injuries account for 40% of work-related sickness absence in health and social care.

Our products

With this in mind, our safe patient lifting products are used on medical wards to enable healthcare professionals to come to the aid of a patient without delay and without putting themselves at risk. We realise that a big part of our responsibility as leaders in our sector is to build awareness about the impact of a musculoskeletal injury. While there is sometimes a culture among healthcare professionals of wanting to help a fallen patient before considering the risk of damage to themselves, our Camel and ELK products and the back-up training, guidance and support we offer greatly reduces that risk.

The Original Patient-Specific Slings

Talk to us about our original patient-specific slings.  Compatible with most hoists our disposable slings are made by the company who made the original patient-specific slings and are good quality products at affordable prices.
