The world’s best smart beds
A team of Australian scientists has discovered the world’s first smart beds that are capable of being used by both men and women.
Key points:The beds are designed to be worn by both sexesThe beds feature ‘smart’ technology that allows the wearer to control and control the bed’s movementsA company has developed an alternative to the standard smart bed for men and the women’s bed, called the SmartBedBed article Scientists from Melbourne University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the University of Melbourne’s Department for Health and Human Services are to present their findings at the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Engineering (RANZEC) this week.
The SmartBed bed is designed to fit a man’s body, but is capable of adjusting to fit the body of a woman.
“The Smart Bed Bed is a flexible bed that allows a person to be comfortably placed in a bed, so that their posture is maintained and they can move freely about the bed,” said Dr Andrew McAllister from RANZec.
“We have also developed a ‘smart bed’ that will allow people to be comfortable in bed when they are wearing the Smart BedBed.”
In order to achieve these benefits, we have developed a novel, flexible bed, that is a bed that is able to accommodate both men as well as women.
“The bed can be worn either by a man or a woman, with each having a different comfort level.
In addition to being able to adjust the bed in a person’s position, the Smartbed bed is also able to use sensors to allow it to control its movements.”
Our sensors enable the bed to track movement around the bed, including when a person is laying down or is sleeping,” Dr McAllisters said.”
So the bed can change its position depending on the position of a person in the bed.
“Dr McAllsister said the bed was able to sense when the person was sleeping and adjust the position in accordance with the person’s comfort level, making the bed an ideal bed for both sexes.”
As well as being able not only to control movement of the bed but also adjust its position, it also enables the bed not only as a bed but as a soft surface for the body, which is really important for men as they have lower body strength and lower muscle strength than women,” he said.
The bed also features sensors that can track movement of people and objects on the bed.”
These sensors enable us to measure movements and make the bed more comfortable for people in the future,” Dr McIntosh said.’
A smart bed is a good idea for the future’Dr McALLSISTS the Smart bed Bed is also ideal for women who have low muscle strength.”
A smart mattress could potentially be a better option for women, because they are less prone to muscle injuries,” Dr MacGregor said.
He said the technology could help with the growing epidemic of osteoarthritis and osteoedema, a condition where bone and cartilage wear down over time.”
If a smart bed can help people with osteo arthritis, then we can potentially use this technology for osteo-arthritis, and it can also help women who are at higher risk of osteOedema,” he added.
The study, entitled ‘A smart sleep bed for women with osteO disease’, will be presented at the RANJEC in Canberra this week, with further research to be undertaken in the years to come.
