Title (EN) A TRANSFER TROLLEY
(FR) CHARIOT DE TRANSFERT
Abstract:
(EN) A transfer trolley, particularly a transfer trolley adapted to pick up a patient (36) from a bed (35) has a plurality of horizontally extending tines (21). Each tine (21) consists of a tube (24) having one end fixed in position and a free open end. A sleeve (28) surrounds the tube (24) and has the free end (31) of the sleeve (28) withdrawn into the interior of the tube (24). The tubes (24) may then be located adjacent a patient (36) and a fluid under pressure inserted into the sleeve (28), thus causing the sleeve (28) to emerge from the end of the tube (24) and insinuate itself under the patient (36). The tube (24), within the then inflated sleeve (28) may thus move to a position in which the tube (24) provides support for the patient (36). The device may be used to lift loads other than patients.
(FR) Un chariot de transfert, notamment un chariot de transfert adapté pour soulever un patient (36) d'un lit (35), comporte une pluralité de fourchons horizontaux (21). Chaque fourchon (21) comprend un tube (24) doté d'une extrémité fixée en position et d'une extrémité ouverte libre. Un manchon (28) entoure le tube (24), et l'extrémité libre (31) du manchon (28) est rentrée à l'intérieur du tube (24). Ensuite, les tubes (24) peuvent être plaçés à proximité d'un patient (36) et un fluide sous pression peut être inséré dans le manchon (28), de sorte que le manchon (28) dépasse de l'extrémité du tube (24) et se glisse sous le patient (36). Le tube (24) se trouvant à l'intérieur du manchon (28) alors gonflé, peut par conséquent se déplacer jusqu'à une position dans laquelle le tube (24) supporte le patient (26). On peut utiliser le dispositif afin de soulever des charges autres que des patients.
