Title (EN) A THERAPEUTIC MATTRESS
(FR) MATELAS THERAPEUTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A mattress (2) which in plan view comprises an inner portion (4) and an outer portion (6), and the mattress (2) being such that the inner portion (4) is of a size for being slept on by at least one person, the outer portion (6) extends at least partially around the inner portion (4), and the inner portion (4) has a lower compression rate than the outer portion (6) whereby the weight of the person on the inner portion (4) is distributed over a greater area than would be the case if the inner portion (4) had the same compression rate as the outer portion (6), and whereby the outer portion (6) constrains the inner portion (4) and controls lateral expansion of the inner portion caused by the weight of the person on the inner portion (4).
(FR) Matelas (2) qui, sur une vue en plan, comprend une partie interne (4) et une partie externe (6), de sorte que la partie interne (4) ait une taille propre à la position allongée pendant le sommeil d'au moins une personne, et que la partie externe (6) s'étende au moins partiellement autour de la partie interne (4), laquelle présente un taux de compression inférieur à celui de la partie externe (6), moyennant quoi le poids de la personne sur la partie interne (4) est réparti sur une surface plus grande que si la partie interne (4) avait le même taux de compression que la partie externe (6), et par ailleurs la partie externe (6) contraint la partie interne (4) et contrôle l'expansion latérale de la partie interne engendrée par le poids de la personne reposant sur la partie interne (4).
