"I understand the woes of bedridden patients and how they are dependent on others for almost everything. Even the caregivers often show signs of disgust while attending to them," Muthu was quoted as saying by Times Of India.

"More often than not, the privacy of the patients is affected in such cases. To maintain the dignity and independence of the patients, I decided to design the bed," he added.

The bed which Muthu designed for his wife as a flush tank, a closet, a linkage to a septic tank and an opening in the middle which would help her wife to relive herself without undertaking much pain.
