Abstract
(EN)
A modular cushion (10) comprising a shaped base (11) which has a flat rear portion (20) having a substantially flat center area and a raised front portion with angularly directed valleys on each side, a removable pommel (12) releasably secured to the flat center portion, a resilient pad positioned on the flat portion (20) of the base to relieve pressure on the ischial and trochanters and a cover having a non-skid undersurface and two-way stretchable material covering a portion of the top. The resilient pad preferably has an array of upstanding interconnected inflatable cells (14). The base (11) is of porous cellular material and has a water impervious separate integral skin adhered over the top surface for strength and protection.
(FR)
Un coussin modulaire (10) comprend une base (11) mise en forme à partie arrière plate (20), une zone centrale virtuellement plate, une partie avant qui présente des dépressions faisant un angle sur chaque côté, un pommeau amovible (12) fixé de manière détachable sur la zone centrale plate, un rembourrage faisant ressort et placé sur la partie plate (20) de la base pour soulager la pression s'exerçant sur les tubérosités ischiatiques et les trochanters, et une enveloppe à surface inférieure non glissante et composée d'un tissu étirable dans les deux sens recouvrant une partie du haut. Le rembourrage faisant ressort comprend de préférence un ensemble de cellules gonflables (14) reliées et verticales. La base (11) est constituée d'un matériau cellulaire poreux et comporte une peau d'un seul tenant, séparée et étanche, qui est collée à sa surface supérieure pour la renforcer et la protéger.
