(FR) APPAREIL, SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE SUPPORT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A support surfce overlay having two or more independently inflatable compartments, each including a plurality of inflatable cells. When inflated, each inflatable cell forms a contact node that may support a user or another object disposed thereon. The inflatable compartments can be alternately inflated and deflated such that contact pressure can be applied to and relieved from corresponding portions of the user's body in an alternating manner.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif de support thérapeutique qui comprend une vessie pourvue d'un ou plusieurs compartiments gonflables indépendamment les uns des autres, chaque compartiment comprenant plusieurs cellules gonflables. Selon l'invention, lorsque gonflée, chaque cellule gonflable forme un nœud de contact qui peut supporter un utilisateur ou un autre objet disposé sur celui-ci. Les compartiments gonflables peuvent être gonflés et dégonflés de façon alternée de sorte qu'une pression de contact peut être appliquée sur les parties correspondantes du corps de l'utilisateur, puis libérée alternativement.
