Injured and sick individuals who are bedridden have more to worry about than their weakened state, which the Air Cocoon by Horatio Yuxin Han, a Chinese designer based in Boston, Massachusetts, addresses. It is a special kind of mattress that helps to prevent bedsores.

The Air Cocoon by Horatio Yuxin Han was inspired by the chikufujin, also known as a bamboo wife, which are Asian body pillows roughly the same size as another person. Unlike Western body pillows, these ones are made out of mesh that lets wind and breezes through, an ideal quality when it comes to many hot, humid Asian countries. Essentially, this mattress applies the same principles in order to reduce chafing and other actions that bring about bedsores. It is a simple, effective and affordable solution.
