Panasonic Debuts Transforming Robobed
Panasonic probably developed this bed that transforms into a wheelchair for those who can't get around much anymore, but hey, couch potatoes will love it, too. The bed converts by the user and has a control system that is easy to operate. While it is a bed, it features posture support technology and helps the user turn over to prevent bedsores. A canopy allows viewing TV, operating electronic devices and has a security camera built-in. As a chair it can detect obstacles and people to avoid collisions.
The Robotic Bed makes its debut at the 36th International Home Care & Rehabilitation Exhibition (H.C.R. 2009) to be held in Tokyo from September 29 to October 1, 2009.
