    This air filled Pillow Lift elevates the User into a seated position at the touch of a button to provide excellent back support. It sits on top of the mattress and is operated by a quiet Airflo compressor (supplied with charging unit). It provides valuable assistance with lifting You from lying down to a seated position but can be left in any position to suit You without disturbing anyone else in the bed. It has an easy to operate hand control and is stable, supportive, lightweight and comfortable and can be used on either single or double beds and provides a very smooth inflation/deflation process that enables the User to feel in total control of the task.
