Cover Me

The design concept is beginning to solve the problem of “hard-to-sucking sputum” happening quite often on bedridden patients. This problem is caused by lung function is not working well to get the sputum out so that lung is not easy to dilate due to stack too much secretions on itself.

Workable slapping can be helping lung function dilating normally and sputum dropping. The principal is to improve the situation of breathing by the vibrations to make the sputum on tracheas dropping down and a cough or suction sputum to clean the secretions while using hands to slap patient’s back.
