What's the Difference Between the Elk & Camel Lifts?

10 September, 2014 0 comments Leave a comment

Humane Lift by Live Oak proudly offers both of Mangar’s innovative portable emergency patient lifts.

Humane Lift’s Camel (Click Here) and Elk (Click Here) lifts are both low cost solutions allowing patients to preserve their independence and dignity. Each system includes an inflatable, professional grade cushion. With the cushion, the patient can be easily and safely lifted from the floor to an elevated sitting position.

This protects both the caregiver and the patient from injuries associated with manually lifting patients from the floor. The strain to both the caregiver’s and the patient’s back and arms can lead to further injury and costs. Also, offering an alternative to an expensive ambulance visit.

Both the Elk and the Camel feature the same battery powered compressor, the Airflo Plus. The AirFlo Plus connects to the same easy to use 4-way hand control. The 4-way hand control allows the operator control each of the system’s 4 independent cushions.

Even though both the Elk and Camel can accomplish the same goal, each has unique features:

 

 

The primary difference between the two lifts is that the Elk requires the assistance of another caregiver.

Without the additional backrest the Elk requires an operator or caregiver to stand behind the patient to ensure their stability.

 

 

The Camel Lift system features an additional adjustable back support.

This support creates a chair like support for the user as well as allowing the patient to use the system without a caregiver present.

 

With its additional back support the Camel is able to lift a maximum weight of 705 lbs.

 

While the Elk lift is able to lift up to 992 lbs.

One of the major benefits of both systems is the portability. Each cushion is designed to be easily transported and stored. The Camel system comes with an additional bag to store the rolled up cushion and hand controls. While the Elk cushion and controls can conveniently roll up in to its self.

Live Oak strongly recommends watching each of the system’s demonstration videos and reading their respective instruction manuals for further information. Also, email us at info@buyliveoak.com or 888-940-0605 for any further questions.
