Smart bed for people with reduced mobility
The Eposbed DA consortium, supported by €300,000 in EU funds, is developing an adjustable bed that will allow patients
with limited mobility to change their position without the assistance of medical staff. The bed uses intelligent software
that interprets the patient’s movement and positions the mattress according to the person’s wishes. It is expected to be
commercialised by the end of 2013.
