Bedridden hospital patients can now wish away the grave problem of bedsores with an 'intelligent bed'. Thanks to the novel idea by Swiss entrepreneur Michael Sauter, who developed a bed which can automatically turn the patients' position.
With periodic automatic change in position of patients on the bed, it is possible to avoid the development of bed sores.
Bed sores are caused due to continuous pressure on the skin by lying in one position for a long time.
This product developed by 'Complaint concept' is still in the testing phase, and will be marketed in Switzerland this year.
