Title
(EN) DEVICES AND METHODS FOR LIFT ASSISTANCE
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ET PROCÉDÉS D'AIDE AU LEVAGE
Abstract
(EN)
Devices and methods are disclosed which relate to lifting a user from a seated position to a raised position. This is performed by incorporating a lifting mechanism into a seat coupled to a movable base portion. Actuators coupled to drive shafts enable a plurality of linkages to be raised and tilted, enabling the seat to rise at the push of a button or other triggering mechanism. A plurality of compressible springs enables an even balance between the weight of the human and the pressure of the lifting mechanism underneath the seat. As the lifting portion lifts the seat, an angle of the seat changes from a substantially horizontal position to a relatively angled position, mimicking the natural motion of the hips and thighs for humans needing assistance. Embodiments disclosed include using the device as a bedside toilet, having a removable bowl attached to the seat, or using the device placed over a toilet.
(FR)
Les dispositifs et procédés ci-décrits concernent le levage d'un utilisateur d'une position assise à une position relevée. Pour ce faire, un mécanisme de levage est incorporé dans un siège associé à une partie de socle mobile. Des vérins accouplés à des arbres menants permettent de lever et d'incliner une pluralité d'éléments de liaison, pour soulever le siège par simple poussée sur un bouton ou autre mécanisme de déclenchement. Une pluralité de ressorts compressibles garantit un équilibre constant entre le poids du sujet et la pression du mécanisme de levage sous le siège. Quand la partie levage soulève le siège, un angle du siège est modifié et passe d'une position essentiellement horizontale à une position relativement inclinée, imitant le mouvement naturel des hanches et des cuisses de sujets humains ayant besoin d'assistance. Les modes de réalisation décrits comprennent l'utilisation du dispositif en tant que toilettes de chevet, avec cuvette détachable fixée au siège, ou l'utilisation du dispositif placé sur des toilettes.
