Title (EN) MATTRESS ARTICULATION STRUCTURE
(FR) STRUCTURE D'ARTICULATION DE MATELAS
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A mattress structure (10) is provided for converting a platform such as a box spring (24) on a bed (11) to an articulatable platform for the bed (11). The mattress structure includes a mattress (12), a base platform (26) that is formed to rest on the box spring (24), first and second top plates (30, 32) hinged on the base platform (26), a head-end bladder (64, 66) fastened between the first top plate (30) and the base platform (26), and a foot-end bladder (68, 70) fastened between the second top plate (32) and the base platform (26). The mattress structure (10) further includes a fastener mechanism (218) that both holds the mattress (12) on the top plates (30, 32) and limits side-to-side movement of the mattress (12) on the top plates (30, 32). In addition, an attachment mechanism (77, 78) holds the base platform (26) on the box spring (24).
(FR) L'invention concerne une structure de matelas (10) permettant de transformer une plate-forme telle qu'un sommier à ressorts (24) d'un lit (11), en plate-forme articulée pour ledit lit (11). Ladite structure de matelas comprend un matelas (12), une plate-forme de base (26) conçue pour reposer sur le sommier à ressorts (24), des première et deuxième plaques supérieures (30, 32) articulées sur la plate-forme de base (26), une vessie de tête (64, 66) fixée entre la première plaque supérieure (30) et la plate-forme de base (26), et une vessie (68, 70) de pied de lit, fixée entre la deuxième plaque supérieure (32) et la plate-forme de base (26). La structure de matelas (10) présente également un mécanisme de fixation (218) qui maintient le matelas (129 sur les plaques supérieures (30, 32) et limite simultanément le mouvement de roulis du matelas (12) sur les plaques supérieures (30, 32). De plus, un mécanisme de fixation (77, 78) maintient la plate-forme de base (26) sur le sommier à ressorts (24).
