Safe Patient Lifting

Mangar Health is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and supply of inflatable moving and handling equipment, including our safe patient lifting range of products.

We understand that moving and handling patients can not only be distressful and undignified but can also increase the risk of injuries associated with hazardous manual lifting techniques.

Our Products

The Mangar ELK and Camel are emergency lifting cushions designed to lift the frailest individual to a bariatric patient from the floor in a safe and dignified manner. The ease of use means that a person can be lifted with the help of one person, minimizing the risk of injury to both the fallen individual and the person lifting them.

Single-Handed Care

The Mangar ELK and Camel Lifting Cushions are safe patient lifting devices designed for single handed care, designed to lift someone who has fallen with just the help of one person.

Keeping things homely...

We are very aware that while our customers require help with some aspects of daily life, the home still needs to feel like home. That’s why we make sure all our products are designed to work alongside your existing furniture and require no permanent fixtures or alterations to your home. This means if you decide to move house, go on holiday, or simply want to free-up furniture or the bath for another person, all our products can be removed or re-fitted in a matter of seconds.

To make sure we deliver on this, all our new products are tested by the very people who use them as well as healthcare professionals before they come to market so you can be sure they are more than fit for purpose.
