Human Washing Machine :-)


The human washing machine pictured here looks like the ultimate fullbody spa. Its a new robotic lifter for the bedridden. The user can control the lifting robot with a remote and the device can move and place the user wherever s/he needs. Sensors make sure that the user is securely positioned on the lifter and stops moving if senses his/her unsafe placement.
