Title
(EN) ARTICULATING BED SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE LIT ARTICULÉ
Abstract
(EN)
A mechanism for activation of an articulating bed incorporates at least one mattress support plate (80) and a pair of side rails (12a, 12b). A rack (36a, 36b) is attached to each side rail and a torque tube (32) extends between the side rails with a pinion gear (34a, 34b) at each end engaging a respective one of the racks. An actuator (22) imparts translational motion to the torque tube perpendicular to its axis. Elevation bars (40a, 40b) connected to the torque tube and the support plate are angularly displaced by translation of the torque tube.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un mécanisme d'activation d'un lit articulé, lequel mécanisme incorpore au moins une plaque de support de matelas (80) et une paire de rails latéraux (12a, 12b). Une crémaillère (36a, 36b) est fixée à chaque rail latéral et un tube de couple (32) s'étend entre les rails latéraux avec un engrenage à pignon (34a, 34b) à chaque extrémité entrant en prise avec une crémaillère respective parmi les crémaillères. Un actionneur (22) communique un mouvement de translation au tube de couple perpendiculaire à son axe. Des barres d'élévation (40a, 40b) reliées au tube de couple et à la plaque de support sont déplacées angulairement par translation du tube de couple.
