ELEVAR is an innovative affordable bed recliner developed by Creativiti Council for bed ridden patients. This manual device can be operated by the patient himself while lying on. The product can be used with any cot by simply placing over it without any fastening. As the device is self-operated, the need of a bystander for supporting the patient to raise and lower the body (for his/her activities of daily living) can be eliminated. The project is carried out with the support of TIMED (Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology) under Nidhi Prayas, Department of Science and Technology – Government of India.
