The CAMEL by Mangar, is an inflatable lifting device
which is designed to sit up and lift a fallen person
from the floor. When inflated, the CAMEL lifts the
patient into a raised seated position ready to stand
with or without assistance.
This equipment may be used with or without a helper
as required.
The CAMEL is powered by a Mangar Airflo Compressor
and controlled using a 4-Way Hand Control. Please
refer to the separate Airflo compressor instructions
before operating.
PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND
UNDERSTOOD BOTH THESE AND THE SEPARATE
AIRFLO COMPRESSOR INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE
OPERATING THIS EQUIPMENT.
