Thousands of refugees, especially children, die every year from infections or other diseases as e result of hypothermia. They are very often just lying on the cold and bare soil or on wet and humid surface, only with a blanket or a hessian mat.
Life-Bed combats hypothermia and humidity since they are 100% waterproof and non-absorbant.
A full sustainable plastic does not exist, but Life-bed is the closest you can get. They are 100% recycable and non-toxic. They are made from a material which is approved for foodpackaging. When incinerated it only emits Co2 and watersteam.Sustainability
Internationally we currently ship Life-Beds to among others Nepal, Nigeria, USA, Colombia, Haiti, Cuba, Germany, Southsudan, Finland, Spain, Botswane and many other places.
They are mainly used for refugees, internally displaced people, disasterpreparedness, homeless in large cities, doctors in developing countries, military patrols, search and rescue teams etc.
In Denmark they are mainly used by festival visitors, travellers for airport transit, hikers and shelters etc.
Life-Bed is invented by Leif Nielsen (to the right) and Ian Charles (to the left). The headoffice is located in Vordingborg, Denmark. Our production facilities are in Copenhagen.
Leif is danish and speaks danish, english and some german. Ian is welsh (UK) and speaks only english.
The purpose of Life-Bed was originally helping refugess and internally displaced people.
The idea came one night in November 2013 when watching TV. There was a broadcast from a typhoon in the Philippines. Buildings were destroyed, lands were flooded, people had nowhere to sleep than on the bare humid soil. They were all wet and freezing. Roads were destroyed or blocked. It was impossible to reach the hit areas with trucks or other vehicles that could bring the people mattresses and blankets.
We looked at each other and decided to find a better solution. Much better than big mattresses that have to be loaded onto trucks.
We wanted to invent a mattress that is packed very small, is easy to distribute, is waterproof and insulating. We decided to find the perfect solution for displaced people, refugees and other people in need of an instant resting and sleeping solution. A mattress that can be lifted by air all over the world within 24 hours.
After a lot of work and thinking, we finally found the perfect solution: Life-Bed.
