Abstract
(EN)
Body orienting harnesses and associated structures are disclosed, along with methods of use. The body orienting harness can position a body, such an infant, with respect to the associated structure, such as a bed, bed frame or crib, a sheet, or a blanket for example. The harness may be integrated with a sheet or blanket in order to secure not only a body in position but also secure the sheet or blanket in position with respect to the body. The sheet, blanket, or other cover, can provide a slip cover for an underlying support surface, such as a mattress for example. Alternatively, the cover can be secured in other ways to form a pocket in association with other structure, such as a bed sheet for example. The harness can be mounted in association with the pocket to secure a body in position with the respect to the pocket and associated structure, such as a mattress, crib, etc. When used to secure an infant during sleep, certain embodiments of the harness and associated structure can help significantly reduce the chance of overheating, suffocating, or otherwise harming the infant.

La présente invention concerne des harnais d’orientation du corps et des structures associées au même titre que des procédés d’utilisation. Ledit harnais peut positionner un corps, tel qu’un enfant, par rapport à la structure associée, telle qu’un lit, un cadre de lit ou un berceau, un drap ou une couverture par exemple. Le harnais peut être intégré à un drap ou une couverture dans le but de fixer non seulement un corps en position, mais aussi de fixer le drap ou la couverture en position par rapport au corps. Le drap, la couverture ou autre recouvrement peut apporter un recouvrement de glissement pour une surface de support sous-jacent, tel qu’un matelas par exemple. En variante, le recouvrement peut être fixé d’autres manières pour former une poche en association avec une autre structure, telle qu’un drap de lit par exemple. Le harnais peut être monté en association avec la poche pour fixer un corps en position par rapport à la poche et une structure associée, telle qu’un matelas, un berceau, etc. Lors d’une utilisation pour attacher un enfant pendant son sommeil, certains modes de réalisation du harnais et de la structure associée peuvent aider à réduire significativement le risque de surchauffe, de suffocation ou d’un autre danger pour l’enfant.
