(FR) MATELAS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A mattress (10) for a hospital bed is provided with first and second layers (11, 12). The first or lower layer (11) is provided with castellations (30) and first and second series of incisions (40, 41) in upper and lower surfaces thereof. The incisions (40, 41) allow the mattress to stretch so as to follow the contour of the bed as the bed is configured into different shapes, without imparting undue compressive force to a person resting on the mattress (10). A plurality of V-shaped grooves (60) is provided at a knee position of the mattress to allow for easy flexing of the mattress (10). The upper layer (12) adds to patient comfort.
(FR)L'invention concerne un matelas (10) pour lit d'hôpital. Ce matelas est composé d'une première et d'une seconde couches (11, 12). La première couche ou couche inférieure (11) est munie de crestellations (30) et d'une première et d'une seconde séries d'incisions (40, 41) sur les surfaces supérieure et inférieure des crestellations. Les incisions (40, 41) permettent au matelas de s'étirer afin d'épouser le contour du lit étant donné que ce dernier présente différentes formes, sans imprimer de force de compression excessive sur une personne reposant sur le matelas (10). Une pluralité de sillons en V (60) sont disposés sur la position du genou du matelas de façon à faciliter la flexion du matelas (10). La couche supérieure (12) ajoute au confort du patient.
