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

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

The incidences of puncture are rare. If a puncture does occur, then only the section of cushion with the damage would be affected – the remaining three will still operate. The lifting cushion will not burst like a balloon and there is no risk of injury to the patient from a rapid descent. If the puncture is small, then the cushion would still work though there would be an audible leak. Punctures cannot be repaired due to the pressure and load and damaged units have to be replaced.

    The Elk has been of great benefit when needed and gives me peace of mind to know it is available

    Mr D Bristol

    when I purchased an Elk from your stockist recently it was as a precaution, and not with the intention of using it in the near future. However, my wife’s crutch slipped on Thursday afternoon and she fell. Compared with what we’ve been through on previous occasions when that happened, last Thursday was a doddle. A marvelous product!”

    I am writing to express my appreciation of this marvelous invention. The Elk emergency lifting cushion has made our daily living more serene and rids us of the constant fear of recovery from falls. The fact too that this equipment can be taken with me on holiday away from home is a special advantage.

    Why are they so expensive? Any discounts out there? I think of a compressor being around $200 or $300 and then there are four cushions and a bar at the bottom. I cannot see where all the expensive comes in. I would think you would sell more if less expensive. How can I rate something I have not used? I will give it a three star for the cost.
