Abstract: In this paper, a design of mattress for patients suffering from pressure ulcer has been proposed. When patients are lying in the bed due to their disability or disorder, the body cells do not function properly and leads to decaying because the body is pressurized and there is no circulation of air. This design helps in lifting the patient body in a periodic manner in order to prevent decay and hence the formation of ulcers is prevented. The most important is that patient does not feel any discomfort in the body when the movement is made. The proposed system helps the patient with moving disability by preventing them from becoming victims of bed sores.
