Bed Turning, Pressure Ulcers, Decubitus Ulcers, Bedsores

The traditional way to avoid the formation of bedsores is for a family member, caregiver or institutional employee to regularly turn and stabilize the patient in a new position to relieve tissue compression and re-establish blood flow. It is estimated that approximately 1.2 million people are suffering from bedsores at any one time in the United States alone and almost 70% of sufferers are over 65.

The Freedom Bed™ is a unique, computer-controlled, therapy system that manually or automatically turns the bed-user to different stable sleeping positions without the aid of caregivers or institutional staff.
