comfort and safety

According to statistics, one in six patients with COVID-19 is critically ill. Because the severe patients can't talk much or make large body movements, and talking can easily spread the virus and lead to cross-infection. It is difficult for the severe patients to communicate with medical staff to reflect their condition and express physiological needs. so, we designed a "comfortable and safe" communication device. The device combines interactive projection technology with easy-to-understand pictures, allowing patients to express their physiological needs and reflect the state of their condition simply by moving their fingers.
