Mangar Inflatable Bathing Cushion-Premium Comfort and Premium Quality

Bathing should never have to be a harrowing experience, and everyone should have the opportunity to experience the therapeutic and rejuvenating effects of a quality soak in a warm bathtub. Unfortunately, some people do not have this luxury, as chronic conditions and/injuries prevent them from experiencing the benefits of a warm bath.

But Wait

Luckily, there are a group of products out on the market designed specifically to circumnavigate the issues faced by those who have problems getting in and out of a bathtub. These products are called bathing cushions, and their purpose is to ensure that everyone has access to a quality bathtub experience. As it is with all products, there are the good, the bad, and the mediocre out on the market, and one must do a relatively significant amount of research to find the bathing cushion that best suits their needs.

Until Now

This article hopes to streamline the process by introducing the Mangar Inflatable Bathing Cushion; a top quality product that will ensure both safety and comfort as you get in and out of the tub. Let’s take a look at just what Mangar has to offer with their premium bathing cushion.

Product Overview

The Mangar bathing cushion is an innovative product that allows users to enjoy the comforts and therapeutic benefits of basking in a tub without having to risk bodily harm. For those who have an issue getting in and out of the bath, this cushion provides the perfect solution. It even allows you to lie completely flat, which is almost unheard of in the bathing cushion market. To fully understand the scope of this high-quality bathing cushion, let’s first go over some of its specifications:

  • Seat height: 16 inches
  • Back Rest Width: 21 inches
  • Seat Depth: 17 and a half inches
  • Weight: 2 Kgs
  • Air hose Length: 6 feet
  • Maximum Weight for User: 153 Kgs
  • Composition: Constructed from polyurethane and durable nylon and fused by utilizing high-frequency welding techniques
  • Portable Component: Strong and lightweight for easy removing. The Bath Cushion can also fold into itself for easy storage or hang to dry

Key Points

When looking over the various features provided by the Mangar Bathing Cushion, the ease of use and installation comes to the forefront when deciding whether or not to buy it. To streamline the process, I have broken this article into the following features and components of the Mangar Bathing Cushion.

Portability and Stability

Weighing in at only four and a half pounds, the Mangar Bathing Cushion is extremely easy to move and adjust, so if you are consistently traveling, or want to shift the bathing cushion from one bathroom to another, then the Mangar Bathing Cushion is for you. Also, Mangar did not shirk on the durability of their product, so you don’t need to worry about it breaking down or losing air.

The compressor is battery operated, and you can purchase an additional battery pack as well, meaning that you can replace your battery with relative ease and travel with your bathing cushion comfortably.

When moving the bath cushion, first deflate and then hang it until completely dry. Once dry, fold the cushion along the individual cushion creases, and store in a cool, dry place until it needs to be moved.

Comfort

Made out of premium quality products and designed with longevity in mind, the Mangar Bathing Cushion creates the perfect environment for a comfortable, therapeutic soak for years to come. Mangar has designed a cushion that allows users to lie down in the tub entirely, and being able to submerge your entire body in warm water guarantees a higher degree of comfort than other bath cushions on the market.

Also, the ability to move the Mangar Bathing Cushion with relative ease is another essential feature in regards to bathing comfort. We do not want to be forced to the only bath in one place, especially if we have travel plans, and Mangar made sure to take this into account when they designed their bathing cushion. Being able to bathe while visiting relatives is a snap, as this particular bathing cushion is battery operated and easily transported, as mentioned previously.

No Expensive Bathroom Changes Needed

The Mangar Bathing Cushion is battery operated and almost entirely autonomous, meaning that you don’t have to make any significant changes to your bathroom to have a luxurious, comfortable bath. The bathing cushion can be fitted or removed in seconds, so if you are on the go or wanting to visit friends or family, this is the cushion for you.

Permanent walk-in bathtubs have a plethora of hidden expenses ranging from plumbing to bathroom reconstruction, and the cost can range from £2500 to £15,000. With the Mangar Bathing Cushion, you can avoid this hassle and hefty price tag and opt for a cushion that easy to install and remove, is battery operated, and does not require expensive bathroom alterations.

Durability to Stand the Test of Time

This bathing cushion was built to last. It can lift and hold up to 153 Kgs, has a fully waterproof hand control, and is powered by low air pressure using the Airflo Mk3 power source, a premium product. Punctures are extremely rare, but if they were to occur, the Mangar Bathing Cushion is broken into independent sections, so you can still have a comfortable bathing experience without losing all the air in the cushion from one small hole.

One thing that must be noted, however, is that if one section of the bathing cushion were to be punctured, it is not recommended that the hole is patched. Instead, the people as Mangar suggest that you purchase an entirely new section. At first glance this may seem a little inconvenient, but when you factor in the fact that the last thing you want is a deflated bathing cushion and the inability to escape the tub, replacing the damaged section makes sense. Mangar has also made this process relatively painless, so that is an added benefit.

Safety Is Paramount

When getting into a tub can prove to be a harrowing experience, safety is critical. One should never have to feel afraid that their bathing cushion will prove hazardous, and it is for this reason that Mangar made sure to load their product with a plethora of safety features, to ensure that you are as safe as possible when enjoying a therapeutic soak. The cushion is battery operated, which means there are no dangerous cables to be afraid of. The hand control for pressurizing and deflating the cushion is completely waterproof, so you don’t need to worry about dropping it. Another key safety feature is the fact that the Mangar bathing cushion will not lower you into the bathtub if there is not enough battery power to raise you back up again, so you don’t need to feel afraid that you will be stuck in the tub with no way out.

Top Tier Compressor for Top Tier Quality

Mangar Airflo MK3 and Airflo Plus Compressors are battery operated. The cells are easily recharged, and spare batteries can be purchased as well, so you are always good to go. Both Mangar Airflo Compressors feature a battery level indicator light. This light lets you know when you need to recharge or replace the battery, so you are not stuck without power.

The Mangar Airflo Mk3 compressor is designed to work with many Mangar products including the Surfer Bather, so if you have other Mangar products, the interchangeability of the compressor is quite a convenient feature. You can tell it is the Airflo Mk3 from the lilac handle, power supply and label, which makes it easy to see which compressor is an exact Mangar product. Hand control is included for easy adjustments by the patient or caregiver without having the compressor at hand. Thought this seems like a small detail, it is quite essential for those with a disability or requires in-house care.

Positives:

The Mangar Bathing Cushion is a durable, highly functional product designed with longevity and safety in mind. Its safety features, in particular, make it stand out from the crowd, primarily the function that does not allow you to descend into the water if there isn’t enough battery to bring you back up. The ability to install the Mangar Bathing Cushion without having to alter your bathroom is also an important feature to note, and the ability to quickly to move the cushion from one tub to another is impressive. For the features and design, the price is reasonable.

Negatives:

Though the probability of a puncture is rare, if it does occur, you cannot just patch the product. The section of the Mangar Bathing Cushion that has a hole in it will need to be replaced.

A Few Very Important Notes

This particular bathing cushion is designed for people who have enough upper body strength to grasp the outsides of the bathtub if additional support is called for. This cushion’s purpose is explicitly for the tub, so there are no other uses for the bathing cushion other than inside a bathtub.

Make sure that you have the sufficient upper body strength or someone nearby who does when descending onto the bathing cushion. Also, unless you are moving it, the Mangar Bathing Cushion must remain in the bathtub.
Make sure that you dry the Mangar Bathing Cushion before you attempt to fold or store it. Though this product is very durable, it must be well maintained to ensure longevity.

Verdict:

The Mangar Bathing Cushion is a top quality product that will withstand the test of time and will ensure therapeutic, fully immersed bathing for years to come.

Even if getting in and out of the tub is a risky endeavor, rest assured that this top quality product will reduce the likelihood of injury, and provide an environment for a quality soak regardless of personal injury or chronic condition. The Mangar Bathing Cushion is durable, portable, and its features are intuitive, making it a product worth purchasing.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is the Airflow tested by the CEN?
    Yes. Airflo Plus compressors are CEN tested. They also have TUV and UN accreditation
  • What should I do if I want a spare battery? Can I have an extra on hand?
    Yes. The battery is detachable from the Airflo Plus and can be charged separately in an accessory called a cradle.
  • What happens if the Mangar Bathing Cushion gets punctured?
    Punctures are exceedingly rare, but that does occur. If a part of the bathing cushion is damaged, only the section that was punctured would be affected, and the rest of the cushion will continue to operate as usual. The lifting cushion, if punctured, will not “pop” or explode, so there is little risk of bodily injury. If the affected area is small, then you can still inflate the section, though there will be a slight sound as air escapes, Unfortunately, due to the pressure and weight placed upon each section, patches cannot be used, and the part that was damaged will need to be replaced.
  • Does the Mangar Bathing Cushion come with a warranty?
    The Mangar Bathing Cushion comes with a standard, 2-year warranty, which should help alleviate any fears when purchasing this product. If two years is not enough for you, Mangar also offers optional extended warranties that have a range of one, three, or five years.
  • Should I purchase the extended warranty?
    Mangar traditionally makes products that last, so if you intend on using the bathing cushion for years to come, it is definitely in your best interest to purchase the extended warranty. Wear and tear and accidents occur, so it is always best to err on the side of caution when buying a warranty for a product that you intend on using as frequently as possible.
