(EN) Disclosed is an inflatable mattress (10) for use when transferring a patient from one area to another. The mattress has a flexible lowermost layer (15) providing a smooth or plate finished low friction surface of a polymer, for example a polyurethane, PTFE, or a polyamide such as nylon, or a combination of said polymers, for sliding the mattress whilst a patient is lying thereon; and one or more inflatable elements (30) located or locatable above the lowermost layer, the or each element comprising a flexible water vapour permeable material such as extruded polyurethane film. Said elements (30) may be exposed (see Figure 4).
(FR) L'invention porte sur un matelas gonflable (10) destiné à être utilisé lors du transfert d'un patient d'une zone à une autre. Le matelas comprend une couche la plus inférieure souple (15) constituant une surface à faible frottement finie lisse ou en plaque en un polymère, par exemple un polyuréthane, un polytétrafluoroéthylène ou un polyamide tel que le Nylon, ou une combinaison desdits polymères, pour faire glisser le matelas tandis qu'un patient est allongé sur celui-ci ; et un ou plusieurs éléments gonflables (30) disposés ou pouvant être disposés au-dessus de la couche la plus inférieure, le ou chaque élément comprenant un matériau perméable à la vapeur d'eau souple tel qu'un film en polyuréthane extrudé. Lesdits éléments (30) peuvent être exposés (voir Figure 4).
