Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR THERAPEUTIC MOTION AND SOUND TREATMENT OF INFANTS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE TRAITEMENT THERAPEUTIQUE DES ENFANTS EN BAS AGE PAR LE MOUVEMENT ET LES SONS
Abstract
(EN) A method and apparatus for soothing and pacifying crying and colicky infants including apparatus (30) and methods to impart a rhythmic cyclic motion of displacement to the surface on which the infant is supported, at a frequency between about ten and forty-three cycles per second with an amplitude of displacement between about one eighth and one hundredth of an inch. In a preferred embodiment, methods and apparatus (60) are included for imparting sound at an intensity of between about sixty and eighty decibels at a frequency range of substantially between about two hundred and four thousand Hertz.
(FR) Procédé et appareil permettant de calmer et d'apaiser des enfants en bas âge pleurnicheurs et coliqueux. Les procédés et l'appareil (30) consistent à conférer un mouvement de déplacement rythmique et cyclique à la surface sur laquelle se tient l'enfant, à une fréquence comprise entre dix et quarente trois cycles par seconde environ, avec une amplitude de déplacement comprise entre un huitième et un centième de pouce environ. Dans un mode préférentiel de réalisation, des procédés et un appareil (60) produisent des sons d'une intensité comprise entre soixante et quatre-vingts décibels environ dans une gamme de fréquence comprise entre deux cents et quatre mille Hertz environ.
