Autobed: A Web-Controlled Robotic Bed

The Healthcare Robotics Lab at Georgia Tech has released a module that can be easily plugged between the hand control and the Invacare bed, without having to modify any existing hardware on the bed. They call a bed so modified an ‘Autobed.’ With this feature, users who are unable to operate the standard bed controls, but can access a web browser, are able to position the bed by themselves without having to rely on a caregiver (for example, patients with quadriplegia).
