Abstract

The disabled elderly people are a major part of the overall disabled people in China. The demand for elderly care is growing rapidly. The manual requirements for nursing staffs are also increasing rapidly. Therefore, this situation places a higher demand on rehabilitation products, especially nursing beds. However, traditional nursing beds cannot meet the needs of disabled patients for auxiliary nursing at different stages of rehabilitation. This project proposes a modular multifunctional nursing bed for moderately disabled patients. The nursing bed is modular and uses intelligent technology for multifunctional functions. It can be used in a hospital environment and is designed for different medical stages. The modular multifunctional bed aims to help in patients’ rehabilitation and improve well-being.
