Title (EN) DEVICE TO FACILITATE PUTTING AN ELASTIC ENVELOPE ON A PART PROJECTING FROM THE HUMAN BODY AND A METHOD OF EXPANDING THE CROSS SECTION OF THE ENVELOPE
(FR) DISPOSITIF PERMETTANT DE FACILITER L"INSTALLATION D"UNE ENVELOPPE ELASTIQUE SUR UNE PARTIE EN SAILLIE DU CORPS HUMAIN ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT D"ETENDRE LA SECTION TRANSVERSALE DE L"ENVELOPPE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A device to facilitate putting an elastic envelope (1) on a part projecting from a human body, e.g. putting a urinal drop collector onto a penis, consists of a casing (4) with two flexible side walls (5, 6) connected to each other along at least two of their side edges (5a, 6a; 5b, 6b) and with at least one opening (8) between two other side edges of the walls. The envelope is at least partially enclosed between the walls (5, 6) and its portion provided with an opening (2) is removably attached to said opening (8). By pressing the mutally connected side edges towards each other the opening (8) is enlarged between the walls, the opening of the envelope also being enlarged. The casing (4) is substantially flat when it is not used, and the space between it and the envelope (1) is airtight, whereby, when the opening (8) between the walls is extended, the portion of the envelope situated inside the casing is enlarged so that the envelope can be put onto said part of the human body. According to one method of expanding the cross section of the envelope, the casing is subjected to an actuating force causing expansion of the cross section of the casing (4) to a substantially oval or circular shape, thereby displacing the amount of air enclosed between the casing and the envelope from the space between the casing and envelope, so that the shape of the envelope conforms to that of the casing. A device according to an alternative embodiment includes a plastic tube at least partially surrounding the urinal drop collector (1) and having a first opening to which one end of the collector is sealingly and removably connected, and a second opening to which the portion of the collector intended for connecting to a urine collection bag is sealingly and removably connected. A means for evacuating the air enclosed in the space between the collector and tube can be connected to said space. When air is evacuated, the cross section of the collector is expanded so that it is pressed against the inside wall of the tube.
(FR)Un dispositif permettant de faciliter l"installation d"une enveloppe elastique (1) sur une partie en saillie du corps humain, par exemple l"installation d"un collecteur de gouttes d"urine sur un penis, se compose d"un entourage (4) avec deux parois laterales flexibles (5, 6) connectees entre elles le long d"au moins deux bords lateraux (5a, 6a; 5b, 6b) et avec au moins une ouverture (8) entre deux autres bords lateraux des parois. L"enveloppe se trouve enfermee au moins partiellement entre les parois (5, 6) et sa portion pourvue d"une ouverture (2) est fixee de maniere detachable a cette ouverture (8). En appuyant les bords lateraux connectes mutuellement l"un contre l"autre, l"ouverture (8) entre les parois s"elargit, elargissant aussi l"ouverture de l"enveloppe. L"entourage (4) est sensiblement plat lorsqu"il n"est pas utilise, et l"espace entre cet entourage et l"enveloppe (1) est etanche a l"air, ce qui fait que lorsque l"ouverture (8) entre les parois est dilatee, la portion de l"enveloppe situee a l"interieur de l"entourage s"elargit, permettant a l"enveloppe d"etre installee sur ladite partie du corps humain. Selon un procede de dilatation de la section transversale de l"enveloppe, l"entourage est soumis a une force d"actionnement provoquant la dilatation de la section transversale de l"entourage (4) en une forme sensiblement ovale ou circulaire, deplacant ainsi la quantite d"air renferme entre l"entourage et l"enveloppe de l"espace entre l"entourage et l"enveloppe, de maniere telle que la forme de l"enveloppe epouse celle de l"entourage. Selon une variante de realisation un dispositif comprend un tuyau en plastique entourant au moins partiellement le collecteur (1) de gouttes d"urine et possede une premiere ouverture a laquelle est connectee de maniere etanche et detachable une extremite du collecteur, et une deuxieme ouverture a laquelle est connectee de maniere etanche et detachable la portion du collecteur destinee a etre connectee a un sachet de recuperation d"urine. Un moyen permettant d"evacuer l"air renferme dans l"espace entre le collecteur et le tuyau peut etre connecte a cet espace. Lorsque l"air est evacue, la section transversale du collecteur est dilatee de maniere a etre comprimee contre la paroi interieure du tuyau.
