Title (DE) ORTHOPÄDISCHE VORRICHTUNG
(EN) ORTHOPAEDIC DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF ORTHOPEDIQUE
Abstract:
(DE) Die Erfindung betrifft eine orthopädische Vorrichtung zur Aufrichtung der Wirbelsäule eines Benutzers (10) in einer Sitzposition mit einem mit Luft oder einem anderen gasförmigen Medium befüllbaren Rückenkissen (22; 42) . Die Vorrichtung verfügt über mindestens ein dem Rückenkissen (22; 42) zugeordnetes Drosselventil (32; 52) , mindestens ein mit Muskelkraft des Benutzers (10) betätigbares Pumpmittel (20; 40, 41 ) und eine Verbindungsleitung (24; 44a, 44b, 44c) zwischen dem Pumpmittel (20; 40, 41 ) und dem Rückenkissen (22; 42) , wobei das Drosselventil (32, 52) bei von außen auf das Rückenkissen (22; 42) wirkendem Druck einen kontinuierlichen Abfluss des gasförmigen Mediums gewährleistet. Durch wechselndes Zuführen und Entweichen des Mediums wird ein dynamischer Wechsel der Sitzposition erreicht, der insbesondere bei lang andauernden Sitzphasen für medizinisch sinnvoll erachtet wird.
(EN) The invention relates to an orthopaedic device for straightening the spinal column of a user (10) in a seated position, with a back cushion (22; 42) that can be filled with air or with another gaseous medium. The device has at least one throttle valve (32; 52) assigned to the back cushion (22; 42), at least one pump means (20; 40, 41) that can be actuated by the muscle power of the user (10), and a connection line (24; 44a, 44b, 44c) between the pump means (20; 40, 41) and the back cushion (22; 42), wherein the throttle valve (32, 52) ensures a continuous draining of the gaseous medium when there is an external pressure acting on the back cushion (22; 42). By alternate supply and withdrawal of the medium, a dynamic alternation of the seating postiton is achieved, as is considered medically advisable, especially when seated for long periods.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif orthopédique destiné à redresser la colonne vertébrale d'un utilisateur (10) dans une position assise, comportant un coussin dorsal (22 ; 42) pouvant être rempli d'air ou d'un autre fluide gazeux. Le dispositif selon l'invention est pourvu d'au moins un clapet d'étranglement (32 ; 52) affecté au coussin dorsal, d'au moins un élément de pompe (20 ; 40, 41) pouvant être actionné par la force musculaire de l'utilisateur (10) ; et d'une conduite de connexion (24 ; 44a, 44b, 44c) située entre l'élément de pompe (20 ; 40, 41) et le coussin dorsal (22 ; 42). En cas de pression extérieure agissant sur le coussin dorsal (22 ; 42), le clapet d'étranglement (32 ; 52) garantit un écoulement continu du fluide gazeux. L'introduction et l'évacuation alternées du fluide permet un changement dynamique de la position assise, présentant notamment un intérêt médical dans le cas de phases d'assise prolongées.
