Protocol for Bead Filled Mattress:
Synthesis of Floatation Technology (SOFT)
Let volume of body = VBLet volume of displaced liquid = VLLet density of body = rhoBLet density of liquid = rhoL – in our case air
Buoyant force acts on the object at the center of gravity of displaced liquid
Features and benefits
NEOPRENE is a synthetic rubber material designed to act flexibly, durably, and to resist breakdown by water. It is form fitting and resilient. Because air and water become isolated in its unique molecular structure, Neoprene is temperately stable. The many uses of Neoprene include: wet suits, waders, insulated can holders, sports gloves, mouse pads, pet collars, elbow and knee pads, orthopedic braces, tack gear.
