The Elk is a compact, battery powered lifting cushion.
If someone falls over they can shuffle on to the cushion, or be rolled on from the recovery position and assisted to sit upright. The Elk can then be inflated at the touch of a button with someone supporting the individual from behind to bring them to a raise seated position ready to stand. Once the lift is complete, the Elk can be deflated, folded up and stored away tidily. If you would like to receive a copy of the full Elk presentation DVD simply fill in our contact form.

Q: Can I use my battery Airflo plugged into the mains power supply?
A: The battery Airflo will work while plugged into the mains, but it will still be running off the battery power. The batteries will charge when the Airflo is not in use but any operation will halt the charging and power will be drained from the batteries.
Q: Is there somewhere near me I can go to see this product?
A: There are a number of outlets around the UK that stock Mangar International’s products. Not every outlet carries every one of our products and prices may vary. For your local dealers please call Head Office on 01544 267674.
