As the elderly population increases, it is expected that the number of people using beds as part of their daily lives will also increase, which means an increase in the population at risk of pressure ulcers. When using existing pressure ulcer prevention cushion products, it was found that pressure ulcers can still occur despite caregivers' efforts to change the patient's position every 30 minutes. To reduce continuous consumption and promote effective pressure ulcer prevention, existing products were designed as one modular product, and a personalized air cushion was designed. It is designed in a modular form based on various medically recommended preventative positions, and provides personalized cycle or intensity to relieve caregivers' burden. Additionally, it has a storage design that minimizes dead zones for effective storage. Ultimately, TUNE is expected to not only reduce the concerns of patients who have difficulty changing positions but also promote blood circulation in the skin through remote control operation, thereby playing a fundamental role in preventing pressure ulcers and supporting health.
