The ELK Emergency Lift inflates under someone who has fallen and makes getting them upright much safer and easier for the caregiver!
Are you concerned about the very real potential for back injury if you needed to lift someone who has fallen?
There is danger in helping someone who has fallen get up off the floor, especially if the person is weak and cannot help you. However, the ELK Lift is a patient handling system that uses an air compressor and an inflatable cushion to minimize your struggle to move, lift and transfer your patient or loved one.
ELK Emergency Patient Lifting Cushions are the perfect combination of assistance and portability. They operate with low air pressure to inflate safely and fully from bottom to top in about 3 minutes.
