Raiser Lifting Cushion

The Raiser Lifting Cushion is an assisted living aid specifically designed to help raise a person that is seated, helping them to get up and out of their chair using single handed care techniques. 

Benefits of the Raiser
The Raiser is an innovative assisted living aid designed to allow a person to rise out of their chair both comfortably and safely. At the touch of a button the two inflatable compartments rise individually, slowly lifting the seated person to a position that will allow them to stand. This method is considered a great alternative to a riser recliner, especially as the Raiser is designed to easily fit the shape of any standard household armchair.

It’s a lightweight and portable lifting solution that can be used both on top of or underneath a cushion or throw. This means there is no need to remove the Raiser Lifting Cushion after every use, alternatively, it can be moved from chair to chair depending on when it needs to be used.

The portability alone makes the Raiser a perfect solution for someone who may not have access to a riser recliner, without the need to buy any additional furniture. It’s size also means the Raiser is quick and easy to deliver and set up.

The Lifting Cushion is not only limited to getting people in and out of a chair and has a variety of different uses, including:
  • Lifting people up off their bed from a seated position
  • Helping people move from a wheelchair to a standing position
  • Helping people get in and out of their car
Who Can Use it?
The Raiser is perfect for those living at home that may struggle getting up when seated as it allows people to safely lift themselves out of a chair in a dignified way. If the user does require assistance when using the Raiser it can easily be done with just one person, making it a valuable aid for single-handed care.

As the lifting device is extremely portable the Raiser cushion is perfect for those who like to travel. It can easily be taken on holidays, day trips or be used in anyone else’s house.

Special Features
  • Will fit on any armchair and can easily be transferred from chair to chair
  • Can be used to help with getting out of a car
  • Extremely lightweight and portable
  • Easy delivery and no installation required
  • Anti-microbial material that is easy to clean

Camel Lifting Cushion

The Camel has been designed to lift a person from the floor with the help of one person using single handed care techniques, while reducing the risk of injury to both the carer and the person who has fallen. The inbuilt backrest gives a re-assuring chair-like quality and offers a fully supportive lift for a person weighing up to 320 kg (50 stone).

Who can use it?
The Camel lifting cushion is ideal for a home setting and is suitable for those not professionally medically trained in the role of carer such as a family member supporting a loved one with a health condition that affects their likelihood of falling.

This includes:

  • People with neurological disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Alzheimer’s and dementia and Huntington's disease
  • Individuals with physical disabilities such as limited mobility or amputees
  • Anyone with complex needs – the Camel is ideal for lifting anyone who may move around during a lift.
  • The elderly – 30% of adults over 65 will fall at least once a year.  This rises to 50% in the over 80s.
  • Plus Size or bariatric patients who face daily mobility challenges and will often find it difficult to get back on their feet when they fall – even though they are uninjured.
Special features
  • With an inbuilt backrest, the Camel offers a fully supportive lift for a person up to 50 stone/320kg with minimal moving and manual handling requirements.
  • Lightweight (weighing only 6.5kgs/ 14 lbs) and can be used inside or outside in situations where many alternative lifting devices may not be suitable.
  • The Camel is inflated using battery operated Airflow compressor and can be packed away into a discreet bag.

About us

Company details

Mangar Health is a world leader in the design, manufacture and supply of inflatable moving and handling and bathing equipment.

We are an award winning company proud to serve a global healthcare market with particular interests in Europe, Asia, America and Australia.

We have been in business since 1981 with a clear commitment to the design of products which enable people to retain their independence and dignity while reducing the risk of strain and injury to carers.

Mangar Health Products
Initially, our focus was on creating the best bathing equipment in the field (you can read more about this on our history page) but very soon we realised our expertise and knowledge could be put to far wider use and have developed a portfolio of aids including bath lifts, pillow lifts and emergency lifting cushions which sell the world over.

Fundamentally, our products and rehabilitation equipment are designed to make life easier for disabled and elderly people with everyday tasks such as getting in and out of bed, taking a bath, and lifting someone who has fallen over.

Customer Care
Looking more closely at the stories behind the people who buy Mangar, the reality is that while our products offer practical solutions to such challenges, what they also do is really add value to an individual’s quality of life – and that is why we love what we do.

We may be an international company but we also keep our contacts close, with a network of people working with us across the world to understand and respond to the changing needs of our customers.
With an in-house research and development team constantly designing and manufacturing life-changing independent living solutions, we work hard to maintain our position at the forefront of healthcare and rehabilitation technology. While we have a cabinet of awards won by Mangar over the years, is it the thank yous that we receive from customers that spur us on and pay real testimony to the expertise of our team.
