Sumitomo Riko Company Limited has developed the smart rubber (SR) active mattress "Taiatsu Bunsan" for preventing bedsores. Consisting of stretchable SR sensors and double-decked air cells, this mattress automatically disperses the weight of bed-ridden patients to prevent ulcers. We are aiming to provide this product to clinics in order to improve the quality of life (QOL) of the patients and support their independence. This product will also lessen burden on caregivers by reducing the frequency of postural changes. We believe the Taiatsu Bunsan helps both patients and caregivers.
