Title (EN) GARMENT HAVING AN OUTER SHELL THAT FREELY MOVES IN RELATION TO AN ABSORBENT ASSEMBLY THEREIN
(FR) VETEMENT AYANT UNE ETOFFE EXTERIEURE QUI SE DEPLACE LIBREMENT PAR RAPPORT A UN ENSEMBLE ABSORBANT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An absorbent garment having a garment-like outer shell and an absorbent assembly positioned therein as disclosed. In particular embodiments, the outer cover of the absorbent assembly has a relatively low coefficient of friction with the interior side of the garment shell. In one embodiment, the garment shell may be constructed such that the coefficient of friction between the garment shell and the outer cover of the absorbent assembly is less than, such as at least 15 percent less than the coefficient of friction between the exterior side of the garment shell and an adjacent material. The adjacent material may include, for instance, a standard bed sheet material. By carefully controlling the frictional properties of the materials as described above, problems associated with bunching and twisting of the garment are minimized.
(FR)L'invention concerne un vêtement absorbant ayant une étoffe extérieure de type vêtement et, dedans, un ensemble absorbant. Dans certains modes de réalisation particuliers, l'étoffe extérieure de l'ensemble absorbant a un coefficient de friction avec la face intérieure de l'étoffe extérieure relativement faible. Dans un mode de réalisation, l'étoffe extérieure peut être réalisée de telle façon que le coefficient de friction entre l'étoffe extérieure et le revêtement externe de l'ensemble absorbant est inférieur, notamment d'au moins 15 %, au coefficient de friction entre la face externe de l'étoffe extérieure et un matériau adjacent. Le matériau adjacent peut comporter, par exemple, un matériau drap de lit standard. En contrôlant soigneusement les propriétés de friction des matériaux susmentionnés, on réduit au minimum les problèmes liés au serrage et à la torsion du vêtement.
