In the design progress, the spine, pressure points in laying position, have been analised, the functions that a general purpose hospital bed should bring, have been discussed. Also the target market, customer and user differences, are examined.This analysis have led to a conclusion of a hospital bed as a designed product for a target customer.Keywords: Ergonomics, Human-machine Interface, Bed, General Purpose Hospital Bed, Spine, Back, Pressure Points, Matress, Function.
