Title (EN) A PRESSURE RELIEVING MATTRESS
(FR) MATELAS SOULAGEANT LA PRESSION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)This invention relates to mattresses such as a pressure relieving mattress and in particular ones for profiling beds. The mattress comprises a base portion (11), a carriage portion (12), an upper portion (13) and an inflatable pressure relieving underlay (14) disposed between the carriage (12) and the upper portion (13). The facing surfaces (15) and (16) of the base portion (11) and the carriage portion (12), respectively, are coated with a low friction material so that the two slide easily relative to one another. This sliding movement is restricted to longitudinal relative movement by the engagement of co-operating formations (17, 18). The combination provides particularly flexible mattress arrangement which also avoids the problem of the leg section of the mattress kicking upwardly when a profiling bed is articulated.
(FR)L'invention concerne des matelas, tels qu'un matelas soulageant la pression, et en particulier les matelas pour les lits de profilage. Le matelas comporte une base (11), un chariot (12), une partie supérieure (13) et une sous-couche soulageant de la pression et gonflable (14) qui est disposée entre le chariot (12) et la partie supérieure (13). Les surfaces se faisant face (15) et (16) de la base (11) et du chariot (12) respectivement, sont revêtues d'un matériau à faible frottement de façon à ce que les deux glissent facilement l'une par rapport à d'autres. Ce mouvement de glissement est limité à un mouvement longitudinal relatif par la mise en prise de structures coopérantes (17, 18). Selon l'invention, la combinaison de ces caractéristiques offre une disposition de matelas particulièrement souple qui évite également le problème de la section des jambes poussant vers le haut lorsqu'un lit de profilage est articulé.
