How To Use Camel Lifting Cushion?


  • The lifting cushions can be used once you have established the fallen resident is uninjured but needs help to return to their feet. Please follow your organisations manual handling guidelines when lifting a fallen person.


  • In many cases, the patient is able to shuffle backwards onto the Camel independently. If this is not possible, from the recovery position, the carer places the Camel directly behind the person with the Camel badge in line with their head. The carer should then position a slidesheet lengthways under the person to enable them to be easily manoeuvred onto the Camel. The slidesheet is then removed.


  • Simple to set up, lifting cushions inflate at the touch of a button, using an Airflo Plus compressor. The four coloured and numbered airlines are simply connected to each section of the lifting cushion. The handset is operated by pressing and holding numbered buttons in sequence. The Airflo will stop automatically once each section is fully inflated. Three sections will usually be sufficient to enable transfer but a taller person may need all four.


  • The resident can be helped to a stand or side transferred to a chair once the lift is completed. When using lifting cushions always follow your organisations manual handling guidelines.
