Designed by Mangar, the Elk is a moving and handling product designed specifically for helping a loved one, resident, or patient up off the floor from a fallen position. Incredibility compact and lightweight, the Elk’s powerful battery-operated inflatable cushion can safely and securely lift up to 1000 lbs.
Because accidents happen quickly and unexpectedly, the Elk’s unique and easy-to-use design can be operated by the caregiver or independently. To avoid further causing harm to the fallen individual, one can shuffle onto the cushion or can be rolled by a caregiver from the recovery position to an assisted sit upright position. From here, the Elk is inflated at the touch of a button, while the caregiver supports the individual from behind until full inflation of the chair. Once the lift is complete, the Elk can be deflated, folded up and stored away tidily.
When an accident occurs, be prepared with the Elk.
“After using the ELK on a 400lb patient, any department that doesn’t purchase these and put them on their trucks are doing their guys a disservice”
