Belthangady: Bengaluru-based SELCO Solar Light Private Limited has launched ‘solar beds’ ‘under the guidance of Belthangady-based Seva Bharati along with The Association of People with Disability, Bengaluru.

The bed is designed for those who have vertebral fractures and are confined to the bed. Deficiency in care or neglect in treatment can cause pressure on the back of such patients and causing ulcers on the skin.

The solar bed regulates airflow in the bed relieving discomfort to bed-ridden patients.

The bed, modelled on the water bed, can operate for 24 hours using electricity generated through solar energy.

According to Seva Bharati, 310 people in Dakshina Kannada, Udupi and Kodagu districts are bed-ridden due to spinal cord injuries.

Two of them, in Banakal and Belthangady, have been given the solar beds while plans are to donate 8 more to others.

The cost of the solar bed including the solar panel and battery is Rs 45,000 with 5 years warranty.
