Seat belt attachment for chest injuries Printer Friendly Version
My sister had breast cancer about 6 years ago and she had issues with using the seat belt, since she had radiation and chemo treatments. Sadly, like most radiation treatments, you have raw and very painful wounds. Sometimes she didn't wear her seat belt and other times she put the strap behind her back, which is terribly unsafe and can also get her a ticket. Anyhow, I was thinking there should be a attachment or some sort of seat belt created for people with chest injuries. It's painful enough to go through what they are suffering, but it would be great if someone created a safe ergonomically seat belt attachment for this case. I just know it's not safe to put the strap behind your back, but I am thinking there are probably other positions the strap could fall and still keep you secure if you were in an accident.
Reward: Just a note that it was in the works, and a link to see it or hear about it once it's on the market. blessings!

Conveyor belt hospital bed Printer Friendly Version
I just remember my father being in the hospital very sick, and after being in the bed for so long and shifting... or not shifting he would end up moving down where his feet would almost be at the bottom of his bed. We had to call the nurse or nurses aid to pull him up in his bed since he was too sick and weak to push himself up in bed. Every time my dad went to the bathroom we had to get someone to help adjust him back in his bad. This was also the case for my husbands grandma when she was ill and my grandma recently when she had back surgery. I was thinking it would be great if there was a safe way to create a hospital bed with a slow moving conveyor belt. Basically the mattress would be made so it was in a loop, flexible yet comfortable, so it could wrap around the core part of the table/bed. It would also have to have a sensor so it would never throw the person off the bed once it pulled them back to the top for comfort or adjustment. It could also help the nurses or aids move the patients back in the bed when the person was weak. The button would be located with all the other bed adjustment buttons and would work very slow. It also might need a lock, in case someone should not be adjusted or keep someone from accidentally pushing it. I just think it would help patients/families feel a little more in control of their comfort without having to feel uncomfortable for two long while waiting for help.... not to mention it could hopefully free up time for the aids and nurses since they are already so under staffed in the hospitals today.
