Project Description

Flipod simplifies bed rotation for non-ambulant patient to relieve respiratory & bed discomfort due to prolonged static positions while sleeping. This currently requires the supervision and help of the caretakers at the expense of their rest.

Simplifying the product to a simple pump assembly, two air bags and velcro lining, it offers comfort with a personalised positioning of the air bag by velcro, as well as a pulsating/comfortable inflation sequence to aid dynamic muscle movement during their sleep daily.
