Why are we producing Life-Beds?
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.
Life-Bed is perfect for “instant relief” and the main advantages are following:
It is a one-use mattress that can be used for weeks and months.
It can be disposed after use to avoid transmitting infection from person to person
It can be disposed environment friendly (See under sustainability)
