We are talking pillows. Yes, perhaps a hospitalized patient’s head may not comfortably fit the pillows on the hospital bed. Perhaps the pillow is too soft, too hard, too small or too large for the patient to be comfortable.
The top quarter of the hospital bed mattress is adapted so that computer controlled microsized foam rubber or air can be injected into (or out of) this enlargeable mattress. The patient or the patient’s family members can tell the attending nurse which type of pillow material should be tried- microsized foam rubber or air. The patient (or family members) will tell the nurse when the proper softness or hardness of the pillow is reached and when the proper size of the pillow is reached. Once again, this pillow is computer controlled so the air or foam rubber can be added or removed from the top quarter of this biomedically altered hospital mattress. There are no contamination issues to be addressed because of the non porous, able to be sanitized mattress barrier separating the inside of this pillow from the patient.
