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.
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.
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.
The ELK is an emergency lifting cushion designed to provide a safe, dignified lift and is recognised for reducing the risk of injury to caregivers.
The Camel is an emergency lifting cushion designed to lift a person from the floor with the help of one person. With an inbuilt backrest, the Camel offers a fully supportive lift for a person up to 700 lbs with minimal moving and handling requirements
The original patient specific clip slings have been designed to be used with a four-point hoist clip system with or without powered positioning. They are perfect for avoiding cross contamination and can be disposed of after the patient is discharged from your care.
