A Smart Pillow for Preventing Flat head syndrome / Medical pillow concept for a baby

A Smart Pillow for Preventing Flat head syndrome
A Smart Pillow for Preventing Flat head syndrome

A baby is weak to symptoms like flat head syndrome(Positional Plagiocephaly)/dermatitis because of long sleeping time in one‒sided position.
It causes medical issues accompanied with harming the appearance. So parents try to manually rotate the baby's head to prevent it. Though it is a real hassle to get complete protection. To solve this problem, the invention was created through years of real-tests. Using air‒actuated tubes, the pillow controls shape of itself to re‒orientate baby's head periodically slowly so that it disperses the pressure of the head in all direction step by step(slowly rotating towards middle‒left‒middle‒right-middle)
