The Camel has been designed to lift a person from the floor with the help of one person while reducing the risk of injury to both the carer and the person who has fallen. The inbuilt backrest gives a reassuring 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 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 Airflo compressor and can be packed away into a discreet bag.
