Title (EN) TOILET
(FR) TOILETTES
Abstract:
(EN) A toilet inhibits an occupant from exiting the toilet. Sensors positioned on the toilet detect the application of pressure on the toilet by an occupant that is consistent with an occupant attempting to exit the toilet, and/or movements of an occupant that are consistent with an occupant attempting to exit the toilet. The sensors cause an actuator to change the angle of the toilet seat, which inhibits exiting the toilet. The toilet may also be constructed to signal an attendant when actions by an occupant are consistent with actions indicating an attempt by the occupant to exit the toilet.
(FR) L'invention concerne des toilettes empêchant un occupant de quitter les toilettes. Des capteurs positionnés sur les toilettes détectent l'application d'une pression sur les toilettes par un occupant qui correspond à une tentative, par un occupant, de quitter les toilettes, et/ou des mouvements d'un occupant qui correspondent à une tentative, par un occupant, de quitter les toilettes. Les capteurs font en sorte qu'un dispositif d'actionnement modifie l'angle du siège des toilettes, de sorte qu'il ne soit pas possible de quitter les toilettes. Les toilettes peuvent également être construites de façon à notifier un gardien lorsque des actions réalisées par un occupant correspondent à des actions indiquant une tentative, par l'occupant, de quitter les toilettes.
