    How to use ELK Lifting Cushion?

    Assess

    • 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 organisation’s manual handling guidelines when lifting a fallen person.

    Position
    • From the recovery position, the ELK is folded under itself and positioned parallel with the person’s belt line. The person is then rolled onto their back and the ELK is unfolded so that it is lying flat underneath them. If the person is able to sit, the ELK is folded under itself and the patient asked to lean to one side while the cushion is positioned under them. They then lean in the other direction and the ELK is unfolded, ready for inflating.  
    • On the ELK, the person is encouraged to sit up and can be assisted using recognised moving and handling techniques if required. The person needs to be sitting centrally on the ELK, as close to the back as possible. Once the person is in the seated position, and with arms folded, the carer gives support from behind for the duration of the lift.

    Inflate
    • 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.

    Transfer
    • 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 organisation’s manual handling guidelines.
