Tidewave R&D AS

Tidewave R&D AS develops a unique and smart mattress that automatically turns and moves users with reduced mobility, on a self-contained time interval. A total of one in five patients at European health institutions suffer from pressure ulcers due to constant pressure in a region of the body over time. The main reason is the absence of regular movement. Today’s solution is manual turning by health professionals. This is painful for the patients, health professionals are exposed to heavy lifting and it becomes resource-intensive for the institutions. Tidewave is solving this problem by making the prosedure automatic and gentle.
