The Leios air mattress from Molten Corp features real time analysis of the body resting and adjusts the position of the user’s body parts accordingly for relief, reports CNET.
The Hiroshima-based company’s Leios air mattress has smart technology that knows when you’re not in the best resting position. Marketed mainly towards the elderly and the injured, the Leios’ “body pressure control” function adjusts the pressure of the air cells within to shift parts of an occupant’s body that may not be in an optimal position. This shift prevents strain and reduces bedsores while also promoting better blood circulation throughout, all of which bring relief to those rehabilitating from injuries and the country’s ageing population.
The result of collaborative research between Molten Corp and the University of Tokyo, the Leios comes equipped with a combination monitor and controller. The display offers real-time analysis of the body resting on the mattress, highlighting areas most in-need of relief, while the controller can be used to adjust the position of the occupant’s body parts accordingly.
The monitor also displays recorded physical movements of the sleeper and, like many sleeping apps for smartphones, logs his or her sleeping patterns.
