After two years’ work on an EU-funded project, a Spanish-based company has come up with a new prototype of a bed that could make life more comfortable for both patients and nurses.

“We have developed a medical bed that helps patients that are bed-bound move without assistance. Basically what the bed does is interpret the patient’s intentions and help him or her move. It is designed for disabled people to avoid bedsores and other problems linked to staying in the same position for a long time,” explained Óscar Valdemoros, managing director of Industrias Tobia, a leading bedding manufacturer.
