Title (EN) SYSTEM FOR DRAWING A WHEELED PASSENGER SUPPORT INTO A VEHICLE
(FR) SYSTÈME DE TRACTION D'UN SUPPORT DE PASSAGER À ROUES DANS UN VÉHICULE
Abstract:
(EN) There is disclosed a system (18) for drawing a wheeled passenger support (16) into a vehicle (10) and selectively restraining the passenger support against movement. The wheeled passenger support may take the form of a wheelchair, wheeled bed or stretcher. One disclosed system comprises: first and second winches (24a/b), each winch comprising a spool (28a/b), a flexible elongate winch element (30a/b) which can be wound on to the spool and which is adapted to be coupled to the passenger support, and a motor (32a/b) for driving the spool to reel in the winch element; and a control system (34a/b) for controlling operation of the first and second winches. The first and second winches are adapted to be mounted within the vehicle and are operable to draw the passenger support into the vehicle, via the flexible elongate winch elements. The control system comprises a first sensor (36a/b) for monitoring rotation of the first winch spool, a second sensor (38a/b) for monitoring rotation of the second winch spool, and a controller (40a/b) which is arranged so that it can operate the first and second winch motors independently, based on information relating to rotation of the first and second winch spools provided by the first and second sensors, to maintain a substantially even pull on the passenger support during draw-in.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système (18) de traction d'un support de passager à roues (16) dans un véhicule (10) et de retenue sélective du support de passager contre un mouvement. Le support de passager à roues peut prendre la forme d'un fauteuil roulant, d'un lit à roues ou d'une civière. Un système décrit dans l'invention comprend : des premier et second treuils (24a/b), chaque treuil comprenant une bobine (28a/b), un élément de treuil allongé flexible (30a/b) qui peut être enroulé sur la bobine et qui est adapté à être accouplé au support de passager et un moteur (32a/b) permettant d'entraîner la bobine de sorte que celle-ci s'enroule dans l'élément de treuil ; et un système de commande (34a/b) permettant de commander le fonctionnement des premier et second treuils. Les premier et second treuils sont adaptés à être montés à l'intérieur du véhicule et peuvent être actionnés pour tirer le support de passager dans le véhicule par l'intermédiaire des éléments de treuil allongés flexibles. Le système de commande comprend un premier capteur (36a/b) permettant de contrôler la rotation de la première bobine de treuil, un second capteur (38a/b) permettant de contrôler la rotation de la seconde bobine de treuil et un dispositif de commande (40a/b) qui est agencé de manière à pouvoir actionner les premier et second moteurs de treuil indépendamment sur la base d'informations relatives à la rotation des première et seconde bobines de treuil fournies par les premier et second capteurs pour maintenir une traction sensiblement uniforme sur le support de passager pendant l'opération d'attraction.
