At Home

One of the biggest fears we face when growing older or after illness is the loss of independence.  You may be finding it more difficult to get in or out of the bath, sit up in bed, get out of a chair or even get your legs into bed each evening.

Also, as people age the likelihood of falling increases and sometimes find getting up again impossible.  This can lead to anxiety about being a nuisance and a fear of falling again can cause a reduction in activity.

Today there is a great range of bathroom, bedroom, and safe lifting products available and once you’ve sourced the right piece of assistive equipment for your needs you’ll wonder why you waited so long to make a purchase. If you have decided it’s time to explore your options, there are plenty of ways to do it.

 Go Shopping

Visit your local Disability Living Centre or Mobility Store.  The staff here are always very helpful and you can try most of the equipment there and then, in a no obligation to buy environment.  Visit our dealer search page for the closest mobility store to you.

Try equipment out at home

If you would rather make your decision independently and in the comfort of your own home, buy online in the knowledge that if the equipment is unsuitable you can return it.  Don’t hesitate to talk to our customer care team about your needs first, though.  They have a wealth of knowledge and experience to call on and will make sure you get the right product for your needs.

Patient Lifting

Our inflatable aids allow people to live safely with dignity in their own homes, allowing people to retain their independence at the same time as reducing the risk of strain and injury to caregivers.


Our products are designed to make life easier for those living at home with an illness that may prevent them getting in and out of the bath easily.


One of the specialist areas here at Mangar is in the provision of aids, which make bedtime an enjoyable and risk-free part of everyday life for those who want to live independently.


Bathing Cushion

ELK Lifting Cushion


  • What happens if I get a puncture?
  • The incidences of puncture are rare. If a puncture does occur, then only the section of cushion with the damage would be affected – the remaining three will still operate. The lifting cushion will not burst like a balloon and there is no risk of injury to the patient from a rapid descent. If the puncture is small, then the cushion would still work though there would be an audible leak. Punctures cannot be repaired due to the pressure and load and damaged units have to be replaced.

Keeping things homely...

We are very aware that while our customers require help with some aspects of daily life, the home still needs to feel like home. That’s why we make sure all our products are designed to work alongside your existing furniture and require no permanent fixtures or alterations to your home. This means if you decide to move house, go on holiday, or simply want to free-up furniture or the bath for another person, all our products can be removed or re-fitted in a matter of seconds.

To make sure we deliver on this, all our new products are tested by the very people who use them as well as healthcare professionals before they come to market so you can be sure they are more than fit for purpose.
