Flipod / Non-ambulatory Healthcare


Flipod is the design and the development of a system to replace manual body rotations for non-ambulant patients with a portable pneumatic inflation that lifts the patient’s body from side to side when required. An automatic pulsating inflation sequence is introduced to augment the patient’s pulmonary functionality and relieve their pressure sore. The pneumatic system can also be self-controlled to position specifically to the user's pressure points to provide an appropriate relief of bed sores for patients with Scoliosis(Curved Spine).
