Title (EN) BED ASSEMBLY
(FR) STRUCTURE DE LIT
Abstract:
(EN) A bed assembly (10) includes a frame (22) which supports four curved mattress support panels (50-56) which are able to move with pivoting of the various parts of the frame (22). The curved panels (50-56) better conform to a patient's body shape and provide an effective lengthening of the mattress support (50-56), particularly when the back rest (30, 50) is raised to a sitting position. The support panels (50-56) are located below the pivot points of the frame (22), which further enhances the lengthening effect. The assembly also includes first and second patient retention panels (80, 82) with complementary edges (92, 94) which can slide over one another. A key pad unit (100) protrudes from the retention panel (80) at a convenient patient position and can be gripped by a p atient's hand.
(FR) L'invention concerne une structure de lit (10) comprenant un cadre (22) qui supporte quatre panneaux incurvés (50-56) servant de support de matelas, capables de bouger grâce au pivotement des différentes parties du cadre (22). Les panneaux incurvés (50-56) s'adaptent mieux à la forme du corps du patient et permettent d'allonger efficacement la surface de support du matelas, en particulier lorsque le dossier (30, 50) est relevé en position assise. Les panneaux incurvés (50-56) sont situés sous les points de pivotement du cadre (22), ce qui augmente davantage l'effet d'allongement. La structure de lit (10) comprend également une première et une seconde barrière de retenue (80, 82) avec des bords complémentaires (92, 94) pouvant coulisser l'un sur l'autre. La barrière de retenue (80) comporte une unité de bloc numérique (100) saillante, située à un emplacement facilement accessible par le patient.
