Title (EN) PATIENT SUPPORT
(FR) SUPPORT POUR PATIENT
Abstract:
(EN) A patient support includes a layer of fluid pressurized bladders, the bladders each having a chamber and an upwardly facing surface for facing and supporting a patient, and a cover over the layer of fluid pressurized bladders. Respective bladders in at least a group of the bladders each have a resilient body in its respective chamber to reform the shape of the respective bladder when a compression load on the respective bladder is removed wherein the pressure in the respective bladders is generally maintained without a powered supply of air. The cover has an upwardly facing patient surface and a bladder layer facing surface, with the patient surface for forming a patient support surface on the support, and the bladder layer facing surface for lying on the upwardly facing surfaces of the bladders.
(FR) La présente invention porte sur un support pour patient qui comprend une couche de vessies à fluide pressurisé, les vessies ayant chacune une chambre et une surface orientée vers le haut pour être orientée vers un patient et supportant ce dernier, et un revêtement sur la couche de vessies à fluide pressurisé. Les vessies respectives dans au moins un groupe de vessies ont chacune un corps élastique dans sa chambre respective pour reformer la forme de la vessie respective lorsqu'une charge de compression sur la vessie respective est retirée, la pression dans les vessies respectives étant généralement maintenues sans avoir recours à une alimentation motorisée en air. Le revêtement a une surface pour le patient orientée vers le haut et une surface orientée vers la couche de vessies avec la surface pour le patient étant conçue pour former une surface de support de patient sur le support et la surface orientée vers la couche de vessies étant conçue pour se trouver sur les surfaces orientées vers le haut des vessies.
