Our emergency lifting cushions have been specifically designed to help a carer lift a person who has suffered a fall. The air-filled models in our stock have extremely high weight capacities, with the ability to lift bariatric (obese) individuals of up to around 50 stone (c.318kg). We have cushions with supportive backs that also raise the individual into a seated position, allowing carers to examine them and ensure they haven’t sustained any injuries.
Emergency lifting cushions at Complete Care Shop are not only functional for helping people off the floor or moving them into a seated position, but also a much safer alternative for carers. Instead of a caregiver having to manually lift a patient, these cushions make the task much easier, reducing strain and the risk of injury.
If there is an evacuation in your building and you have patients who live with mobility limitations, you must find a way to help them out safely. With an emergency lifting chair, you can securely strap in the individual and transport them downstairs safely. Our chairs boast safety features such as auto-brake wheels and a stair blade, helping you navigate a tricky situation with as much ease as possible.

Frequently asked questions about emergency lifting cushions
An emergency lifting cushion is a portable and inflatable device designed to help lift individuals who have fallen and need assistance getting up. It typically consists of an air-filled cushion with multiple chambers that, when inflated, raise the person off the ground to a sitting or standing position. Caregivers or first responders place the deflated cushion under the fallen individual, then inflate it using an integrated pump or external source to provide a safe and controlled lift.
Emergency lifting cushions are beneficial for individuals who have fallen and lack the strength or ability to stand up independently. These cushions are particularly useful for the elderly, people with mobility impairments, or those at risk of falls due to medical conditions. Carers, healthcare professionals, and emergency responders can use these cushions to provide prompt and safe assistance to individuals in need of help.
When choosing an emergency lifting cushion, consider weight capacity, inflation method, size, portability, durability, stability features, ease of cleaning, and healthcare professional input. These aspects ensure a suitable choice that provides safe and efficient assistance during critical situations.
