Camel Lifting Cushion

Our Mangar Camel emergency lifting cushion is designed to provide a safe and dignified lift in high-pressure situations. It is a recognized unique manual handling aid for professionals in emergency response situations, with every ambulance in the UK stocking one.

Benefits of the Camel

The Camel was designed to help lift a person up off the floor with the support of only one person, at the same time as reducing the risk of injury to both the emergency services professional and the patient who has fallen. The lifting cushions built-in backrest creates a reassuring chair-like effect, offering a fully supportive lift for a person weighing up to 700 lbs.

Who can use it?

The Camel lifting cushion is the perfect aid for emergency service personnel providing key support when lifting in a pressurized environment. Both injured and non-injured individuals that have fallen can use it, including the following:

  • The elderly. With over 30% of adults over the age of 65 falling at least once a year, safe patient lifting for the elderly is crucial. This number rises to 50% in the over 80s, increasing the need for a safe and dignified lift.
  • Bariatric patients facing daily mobility challenges often find it difficult to get back on their feet if they experience a fall, even if they are uninjured.
  • People who suffer from neurological disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Strokes, Parkinson’s Disease, Dementia and Huntington's disease.
  • Individuals limited mobility and physical disabilities.
  • The Camel is ideal for lifting anyone who may move around during a lift.

Special features

  • The Mangar Camel has inbuilt backrest and offers a fully supportive lift for people weighing up to 780 lbs, with a reduced need for moving and manual handling.
  • The inflatable lift is lightweight (weighing only 14.3 lbs) and can be used both inside and outside in situations where many other lifting devices may not be suitable.
  • The Camel is inflated using the battery operated Airflo compressor, meaning there are absolutely no dangerous cables.
  • It is easy to use and requires very little training.
  • The Airflo compressor can be charged using a car charger, saving you from taking it out of the emergency services vehicle every time it needs charging.
