Title
(EN) TAMPON INSERTION DEVICE WITH DEPTH INDICATOR
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'INSERTION DE TAMPON AVEC INDICATEUR DE PROFONDEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A tampon insertion device (10) for inserting a tampon includes a structure for indicating the insertion device (10) is sufficiently inserted into a woman's vagina before deploying the tampon.(50) The tampon insertion device (10) includes a barrel (20) having opposed insertion (22) and proximal (24) end portions and a side wall that defines an interior area therebetween. A tampon (50) is initially positioned in the interior area. A depth indicator (60) having indicia is situated on the side wall (26) of the barrel (20) that is indicative that the barrel (20) is fully inserted, the indicia including one of a recess, a groove, (62) or imprinted matter (61) extending radially about the barrel. The insertion device (10) includes a plunger (40) slidable from a starter configuration extending away from the proximal end portion (24) of the barrel (20) to a deployed configuration positioned downstream inside the interior area. Pressure applied to the plunger (40) causes the plunger (40) to urge the tampon (50) downstream within the interior area.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif d'insertion de tampon (10) permettant d'insérer un tampon qui comprend une structure servant à indiquer que le dispositif d'insertion (10) est suffisamment inséré dans le vagin d'une femme avant le déploiement du tampon. Le dispositif d'insertion de tampon (10) comprend un cylindre (20) ayant des parties d'extrémité d'insertion (22) et proximales (24) opposées et une paroi latérale qui forme une zone intérieure entre celles-ci. Un tampon (50) est initialement positionné dans la zone intérieure. Un indicateur de profondeur (60) ayant des repères est situé sur la paroi latérale (26) du cylindre (20) qui indique que le cylindre (20) est complètement inséré, les repères comprenant un élément choisi parmi un évidement, une rainure (62) et une matière imprimée (61) s'étendant radialement autour du cylindre. Le dispositif d'insertion (10) comprend un plongeur (40) pouvant coulisser à partir d'une configuration de départ s'étendant à l'opposé de la partie d'extrémité proximale (24) du cylindre vers une configuration déployée positionnée en aval à l'intérieur de la zone intérieure. La pression appliquée au plongeur (40) amène le piston (40) à pousser le tampon (50) en aval à l'intérieur de la zone intérieure.
