REVOLUTIONIZING TURNING OF PATIENTS
A total of one in five patients at European health institutions suffer from pressure ulcers due to constant pressure in a region of the body over time. The main reason is the absence of regular movement. Today's solution is manual turning by health professionals. This is painful for the patients, health professionals are exposed to heavy lifting and it becomes resource-intensive for the institutions. Tidewave is solving this problem by making the procedure automatic and gentle.

THE MARKET IS READY FOR TIDEWAVE
"This product will make our users more independent, especially at night.
I would say that we would relieve the daily work load of two employees if using Tidewave,
so the cost would be covered quickly. Not to mention saved back pains and happy users"
