Yet another project funded by Norway Pumps & Pipes

28.06.2016

Yet another exiting project has got funding from Norway Pumps & Pipes. Bedsores is an increasing problem globally, mainly due to aging and obesity. Tidewave is a pressure relief product helping both the patients and the health care workers.

Manual turning of patients with low or no mobility has several disadvantages: Health care workers are spending many working hours on turning patients. Back injuries related to manual lifting is the main cause of sick leave in the health service. The health institutions spend huge resources on this problem area. Treatment of bedsores account for 4% of the national health budget.  Last but not least, manual turning can be painful to the patients.
About 50% of the 45.000 residents in Norwegian nursing homes need pressure relief. The global market for pressure relief products is increasing, mainly due to aging, obesity, and a well-functioning health care system.
Tidewave is a rotational module that can be placed on any bed base in combination with a mattress. The rotational module is being curved by using an automated pressure unit. The movement of the rotational module is turning the patient according to a predefined time schedule.
