HanMaek Medical is a company that constantly researches and develops technology to relieve the difficulties of nursing care by providing innovative solutions. The company dedicates itself to liberate the family from the illness and to experience love and dignity as a person. The CEO of HanMaek Medical, Han Young Kwan, developed the Moving Bed Shower Carrier from having experiences with nursing his father for 17 years.  The CEO expressed that there are many accidents, especially falling from the bed, for patients in the process of going to the bathroom, and the whole process of getting out of the bed requires a significant effort that needs at least two people’s assistance. However, the invention of the Moving Bed Shower Carrier not only prevents these accidents, but also provides a safer and better quality nursing care experience that can be done with only one helper.

The Moving Bed Shower Carrier is easily transportable and equipped with water-heating and UV sterilization technologies. It also has an internal waste storage that can be easily thrown out in the bathroom. This product has been supplied to many hospitals and nursing homes, such as Korean University Hospital, Kwangju Christian Hospital, and AsanChungmu Hospital. There is a high demand for the product nationwide in hospitals, nursing homes, and even in nursing schools.
