How often should the lifting cushion be serviced?

We recommend servicing your lifting cushion every 12 months.

Are there different sizes of lifting cushions?

We have an ELK and a Camel lifting cushion. The ELK will lift 450 KG or 980lbs 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 over inflate my lifting cushion?

No. The Airflo Plus will stop once full pressure is realized.

What sort of ground can lifting cushions be used on outside?

The lifting cushions can be used on any type of surface but do look out for broken glass or sharp stones which could puncture the cushions. We advise putting a small tarpaulin or mat underneath the lifting cushion in these circumstances.

Can I lift someone supine (lying down) on the lifting cushion?

Yes. This lift is performed in conjunction with a scoop or transfer board.

How quickly does the lifting cushion inflate and deflate?

The speed the lifting cushions inflate will depend on the weight of the person being lifted, but generally it will take less than three minutes. The lifting cushions can deflate in less than a minute.

What is the highest and lowest outside temperature I can use my lifting cushion in?

The maximum temperature is 95F (35C) and lowest 41F (5C).

Can I leave the battery on charge all the time?

Yes, and we recommend you do. The Airflo Plus may remain continuously on charge when not in use as the batteries cannot be overcharged.

What type of battery is in the Airflo Plus?

The Airflo Plus is powered by two valve regulated sealed lead acid batteries.

Can I have a spare battery?

Yes. The battery is detachable from the Airflo Plus and can be charged separately in an accessory called a cradle.

I have secondary progressive Multiple Sclerosis and quite often fall out of my wheelchair due to my chemotherapy treatment. I now use a very simple device called the ‘Camel’ to get me up from the floor to my wheelchair very easily. The ‘Camel’ (Complete Air Moving Elevating Lift) uses low air pressure to inflate it first to sit me up and then to raise me to a height where I can transfer. In my situation 2 people are needed to assist me, but the ‘Camel’ is very simple and easy to use and requires minimal instruction to operate it. The ‘Camel’ chair lift is a fantastic piece of equipment.
