Freedom Bed / Medical Bed

Freedom Bed
Freedom Bed

Freedom Bed is a redesign of a medical bed that treats patients with pressure ulcers. The bed automatically rotates the user side by side during the night without the aid of caregivers or institutional staff.
The aim of this project was to develop a new aesthetic direction for Pro Bed Medical Technologies, complementing the current user market of home care and residential spaces. The design also incorporates strong consideration for use in a hospital environment.
The final prototype includes two end boards made from bent plywood and ABS plastic, a simplified touchscreen interface, and two side rails with an improved locking/opening mechanism.
