Cumulino is an active positioning cushion to cure and prevent infancy skull asymmetries.
19.7% of newborns in the fourth month are affected. Existing products do not solve the problem to the same degree.
While the infant lies on the pillow, a head moving from left to right and vice versa is achieved. This is achieved by a continuous but very slow change in shape.This is made possible by shape memory actuators, embedded in a flexible plastic matrix inside the cushion.
Without disturbing the sleep different spots of the child‘s head can be addressed and prevent a unilateral pressure of the skull.
