Care bed for elderly people and caregivers

In the future there will be more older people and fewer people to take care of the elderly. Hence the need for new tools that both makes the elderly people more independent and helps to create better working conditions for such caregivers.

This could be, for example, by developing a radical new care bed, which makes it easier for the elderly themselves to get in and out of the bed, so that they require less assistance from nursing staff. By taking into account the system that the new care bed is integrated in, it is possible to create a solution that creates value for all the different users of the bed. This provides a solution that can help to give the elderly a better quality of life, improve working conditions for nursing staff, and lead to savings for municipalities.
