  • How to use:
    - Step 1- Roll the individual on their side, unroll the ELK and place flat on the floor parallel to the individual.
    - Step 2- Roll the individual onto the ELK.
    - Step 3- Turn on the Airflo compressor and begin to inflate making sure that the individual is stable.
    - Step 4- Plug in the remote and valves to the airflo pump and then insert the valves into the Elk. This works by using the Elks four numbered, colour-coded adaptors found on each inflating chamber. Simply push the valve into the corresponding socket and its set to go.

    - Inflate the ELK, sponge clean with a detergent solution and dry thoroughly before storing in a dry place

    - The medical state of a person needing to be raised must be assessed before commencing a lift
    - Ensure that the surface on which the ELK is to be placed is free from sharp objects
    - If the slide sheet has been used to transfer the patient onto the ELK it must be removed from under the patient before commencing a lift
    - Important sections must always be fully inflated in sequence from the bottom up, in order to maintain stability
    - It should not be used on a person with injuries
    - If someone complains of neck, head or back injuries, then medical advice should be sought instead
    - NOTE: It is best, however, to support the person by the shoulders to ensure they do not move
