Title: AUTOMATIC BODY-TURNING DEVICE AND METHOD FOR ELDERLY
Abstract:
Disclosed is an automatic body-turning device for the elderly, comprising a bed body support (1), a left side bed plate (2) and a right side bed plate (3), one air bag (5) is respectively provided at the outer side below the left and right bed plates (2, 3), each air bag (5) is respectively connected to an air pump (8), a left pressure sensor (12) is provided on an upper surface of the left side bed plate (2), and a right pressure sensor (13) is provided on an upper surface of the right side bed plate (3). The left pressure sensor (12) senses a left pressure value on the left side bed plate (2), and the right pressure sensor (13) senses a right pressure value on the right side bed plate (3). When the left pressure value is larger than the right pressure value, a micro-controller (10) controls the air pump (8) to inflate the air bag (5) below the left side bed plate (2) to lift the left side bed plate (2) up to enable the elderly person to turn his/her body to the right side bed plate (3); when the left pressure value is smaller or equal to the right pressure value, the micro-controller (10) controls the air pump (8) to inflate the air bag (5) below the right side bed plate (3) to lift the right side bed plate (3) up to enable the elderly person to turn his/her body to the left side bed plate (2). Further provided is an automatic body-turning method for the elderly. The device and the method can facilitate automatic body-turning for the elderly without carrying the elderly person manually, saving time and energy.
