The Inflatable Cushion
The Inflatable Cushion
The Elk's inflatable cushion is lightweight, weighing only 8 lbs. The cushion rolls up into itself for easy storage and carrying.The cushion's stability bar (used during inflation) keeps the cushion securely rolled into itself while not is use. There is also a convenient space inside of the rolled up cushion where you can store the system's 4-way hand control and air hose. Just simply unclipping the flap unfurls the cushion and presents the 4-way hand control and air hose, ready to respond quickly.
The cushion's dimension's while inflated: 22.5" wide x 22" high x 19.75" diameter (the direction the patient faces while seated).
The cushion's dimension's while deflated: 24.5" wide x 4.5" wide x 10" diameter
On the underside of the cushion, there is also a brief instructional diagram and important warnings for a quick reminder during use.
To clean the cushion, while it is inflated, use a sponge and detergent solution. Dry the cushion thoroughly before storing in a warm place. Do not dry the Elk cushion with hot air. To disinfect the cushion, sponge with a disinfectant solution or alcohol impregnated wipe. Do not dry with hot air following disinfecting.
The Airflo Plus
The Airflo weighs 12.5 lbs, performing at least 3 full lifts of the Mangar Elk Cushion from a full charge.
Its power source, 2 replaceable 12-volt batteries, are monitored by the Airflo's internal microprocessor. The 2 x 12-volt batteries can quickly be released and charged via the optional charging cradle.
The battery's status light shows its level of charge
Steady green - Fully Charged
Steady green - Fully Charged
Flashing green - recharge soon
Steady Red - Recharge immediately
The battery needs to be recharged whenever the indicator light is flashing green to ensure a complete inflation in an emergency. To maintain a complete charge, it is strongly recommended to keep the Airflo Plus continuously on charge.
The internal microprocessor will also monitor the battery's level during charging, preventing overcharging. Includes 1 Battery Charger and multiple plug adaptors for use in different regions. Due to the amount of required energy, the Airflo's charger is unable to directly power the cushion's inflation.
For the Caregiver
A Practical & Cost-Effective Solution: For Caregivers
Avoid costly and dangerous manual patient lifts.
The Mangar Elk is a cost-effective, safe, patient lifting solution.
The Elk's 4 chambers decrease the most hazardous lifts to a caregiver's musculoskeletal system. Lifting a person from the floor, especially repeatedly, puts extreme stress on a caregiver's joints, back and muscles. This stress puts the caregiver's ability to give care in risk with each lift. Musculoskeletaletal injuries can take extended periods of time to heal.
During the caregiver's recovery care, costs can spike. Costly substitute care, overtime for existing staff, the caregiver's medical costs or relying on ambulance visits.
For the Patient
A Graceful & Safe Choice: For Patients
Patient's quality of care improves when safe patient handling technology is introduced. The Mangar Elk's design preserves the patient's physical safety and dignity during the lift. The Elk's lift will reduce the danger from an unsuccessful manual lift. An unsuccessful manual lift can cause falls, friction burns, bruises, and dislocated shoulders.
Preserve the patient's poise after a fall. Avoiding the expensive, enormous mechanical lifts, which practically dangle the patient while being lifted. Or, having an entire ambulance team arrive to lift them following a mild fall. Any of these factors can add to a patient's growing embarrassment or anxiety about falling. With increasing worry about potentially falling, many will begin to avoid walking or leaving their home altogether.
Their decreasing daily activity level will then lead to weaker walking muscles and joints and an increased chance of falling. Reduce repeated fall response costs, preserve patient's and caregiver's musculoskeletal health, all for an effective investment.
