Abstract—In present investigation, we see that in hospital, patient transfer from one place to another place that time require labor intensive work. Sometime during handling, patient and hospital staff suffer from many problem like stresses are produced in the body, some time chances to sleep down the patient. It is required to eliminate all types of possibilities. The present research work proposes a design and development of modified mattresses. By using such type of modification we can totally eliminate the problem occur at the time of handling of patients.
