We have developed an air mattress that prevents patients from developing pressure ulcers (bedsores), thereby improving their quality of life (QOL), promoting their rehabilitation, and reducing the burden of caregivers when changing a patient's body position. Based on suggestions from medical professionals, our mattress is equipped with "Smart Rubber" (SR) sensors and two-balloon air cells. The sensors measure body pressure and the tension of the air cells is accordingly adjusted in order to fit to the patient's body shape. This mattress disperses body pressure smoothly, provides comfortable bed rest and helps patients' early ambulation.
