Get To Sleep Easy, Combating Falls!

Get To Sleep Easy is a social enterprise creating the First Ever Walking Frame (aka Walker) which comes TO YOU and the Smart Inclining Bed - a hospital bed alternative that converts any bed into a hospital bed for 1/10th of the price! It also sends alerts nurses/caretakers when someone's likely fallen, or developing pressure sores, as well as alert family members when people with conditions like Sleep Apnoea or heart disease stop breathing!

In addition to this, we plan to power research and strengthen the world through our app - Centered Around You - because life, and healthcare SHOULD revolve around you.

I am an ex cancer patient, now medical student, and I started this up after I had enough of friends dying not to not cancer, but rather common, preventable complications that many vulnerable people face in hospitals ,and in real life.  Things like falls, pneumonias, deep vein thromboses (clots) and pressure sores not only take hundreds of thousands of lives per year, but cost the US 10s of billions of dollars EACH. 

I knew I had to do something about it. So I founded Get To Sleep Easy. And here's some of the AWESOME things we've created!

Our Smart Inclining Bed - that hospital bed alternative that costs less than 1/10th of the price - will feature weight sensors which map patients' movements and alert nurses or caretakers when someone's likely had a fall,  are developing pressure sores, or if they've stopped breathing (and other emergencies)! It also features breath sensors that'll alert loved ones when someone's stopped breathing for extended periods of time. 

And our Robotic Walking Frame is the first ever walking frame which comes TO YOU! Designed to crumple with a patient if they fall to minimise harm, and with a seat so users can rest when required, this also connects to our Smart Inclining Bed, coming automatically to a user when they're getting up. Together, these target falls where they happen most - 70% when getting out of bed, 19% while walking, and 85% when noone else is in the room to help. 

But we're doing so much more than that. Our app, and voice response unit not only allows users to communicate to nurses or caretakers when they need them most, but also walks them patients through exercises and reads to them. The 10% of our population who are lonely all the time will be able to connect to others with similar issues to them. Charging ports allow you to keep your devices close by, and our fold out trays are actually strong enough to hold your food AND other necessities like phones. 

Because we're not just trying to make life safer and easier for people going through tough times, we're trying to make it more fun, or at least more bearable too! for more info on how we're giving back too.

So far, we've won NSW, and Australian Student Startup of the Year, partners with nursing homes, including one of Australia's largest players, got working prototypes of all of the above, have a manufacturing partner who can make our bed in bulk tomorrow if need be, and gotten some pretty cool media coverage too, including national news features and a Buzzfeed article about us!

Donate now,  and help us fund our next goal! Purchasing various devices and tools - from sensors to foam cutting blades - to help us in prototyping, and as we go into testing, and to help ensure that it's not just me doing everything!
