Refugees and internally displaced people

The majority of refugees and IDP’s are often reduced to sleep on hard, cold and wet ground.

The fastest lightest solution.

When a disaster strikes, it is extremely important to be at the scene instantly and offer relief to the affected population. Life-Bed is so tiny that you can easily have 50 pcs. in a backpack. They can be distributed by hand, with a motorcycle or from a horseback. They can even be thrown out from a helicopter, because they are so ligth the they will not hurt anyone in case they get hit by one. That is NOT possible with normal mattresses or sleeping pads.

They are 5 cm. thick when inflated and thus gives the user a very comfortable place to rest and sleep. They are insulating and 100% waterproof. They can float in case of flood and they are 100% non-toxic.

Thousands of refugees, especially children, dies every year from infections or other diseases as a result from hypothermia. Very often they have no choice but to sleep and rest on the bare cold and wet soil. Life-Bed combats both hypothermia and humidity since they are 100% waterproof and non-absorbing. Under ideal conditions and use Life-bed has a theoretical R value of 2.76

Real sustainable plastic does not exist, but Life-Bed is the closest you can get. Please read more here: sustainability.

Life-Bed weighs only 300 gram and measures just 1x29x39cm when uninflated. One box 0f 83x63x30cm. can hold  100 pieces, and we can load 10 boxes on a pallet (1200 units). They are so tiny that it is  cheaper to fly them to the destination compared to the seafreight for same quantity of normal mattresses. See more here: Technical info

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.
