Abstract

The goal of this project was to design a hospital bed which is capable of repeated domestic manufacturability at a moderate cost for China and modification to satisfy the demands of the consumer. The completed design is constructed for simplistic use and operated manually. The design can be further converted with advanced electrical components. Most importantly, our bed employs the use of a lower leg articulating piece, the first of for any bed which we currently found on the market.
