Title
(EN) CERVICAL PILLOW WITH VARIABLE THICKNESS HEAD AND NECK PORTIONS
(FR) OREILLER CERVICAL COMPORTANT DES PARTIES DE SUPPORT DE LA TETE ET DE LA NUQUE A EPAISSEUR VARIABLE
Abstract
(EN)
A U-shaped pillow (10) provides for the maximization of the cross-sectional area of the air passage of the user at the level of the oropharynx. The user's head is extended backwards in the supine position and the user's occiput rests directly against the underlying mattress. Additionally the pillow has lateral head resting portions (20, 22) forming the legs of the U connected to a central region (26) by a transitional region (28, 30), collectively forming the bottom of the U, that is dimensioned so that the user's thoracic and cervical spine are maintained substantially aligned when the user rolls between the supine and lateral decubitus positions.
(FR)
Oreiller en forme de U (10) permettant de maximaliser la superficie de section transversale des voies aériennes de l'utilisateur au niveau de l'oro-pharynx. La tête de l'utilisateur est étendue vers l'arrière en position couchée et son occiput repose directement contre le matelas sous-jacent. De plus, cet oreiller comporte des parties latérales (20, 22) de support de la tête constituant les branches du U reliées à une région centrale (26) par une région de transition (28, 30), l'ensemble constituant la base du U, qui est dimensionnée de façon à maintenir les vertèbres thoraciques et cervicales sensiblement alignées, quand l'utilisateur se tourne pour passer de la position couchée sur le dos à la position de décubitus latéral.
