Turning a patient / warning lamp

Turning a patient
Turning a patient

In the hospital, a nurse needs to handle many events and is unable to remember the turning position of each patient. Therefore, this design concept is a type of recorder which can record the turning position during each period of time. A nurse can observe the indicator and is aware of whether it is time for turning a bedridden patient along with the position to be turned. This can avoid a long-term bedridden patient from skin ulcers due to a long-term fixed position.
