Abstract(s)This paper presents the preliminary studies of the conceptual design of a medical device used mainly for the transference of bedridden people. The principle of the design is undertaken in order to maximize the safety and comfort of the bedridden and the caregiver in the actions of transference and hygiene. The equipment is easily adapted to the physical structures available at home, as well as in the health and social institutions, which are responsible and provide medical treatment and accompaniment to the bedridden. With the use of these equipment, it is expected to increase the quality of life and wellbeing of the bedridden and the caregivers.
