发明内容 SUMMARY

[0005] 本发明涉及一种牙刷,这种牙刷包括手柄和附接到手柄的刷头,该刷头具有由可变形刷毛支承表面和基部所界定的腔室,可变形刷毛支承表面在腔室的顶部且基部在可变形刷毛支承表面的对面,腔室的侧面由刷头的周缘界定,该基部包括罩盖,该罩盖独立于基部的其余部分之外并可附接到基部的其余部分。 [0005] The present invention relates to a toothbrush comprising a handle and a brush head attached to the handle, the brush head having a chamber by a deformable bristle-bearing surface and the base, as defined, can be deformable bristle-bearing surface of the chamber the top and base portion opposite the bristle bearing surface of the deformable side surface of the chamber defined by the peripheral edge of the head, the base portion comprising a cover, which cover separate from the rest of the base and is attached to the rest of the base .

[0006] 刷头包括周缘,该周缘支撑刷毛支承表面并具有凹进,以形成该表面下的腔室。 [0006] The brush head includes a peripheral, the peripheral support and having a bristle-bearing surface is recessed to form a chamber at the surface. 优选该周缘以壁的形式在刷头周围延伸并具有上和下边缘。 Preferably, the circumferential edge and having upper and lower edges around the head in the form of a wall. 优选刷毛支承表面的一部分附接到该周缘的上边缘和/或该周缘的内表面。 Portion is preferably attached to the bristle bearing surface of the peripheral edge of the upper edge and / or the inner surface of the peripheral edge.

[0007] 在另一个优选实施例中,刷毛支承表面包括柔性构件。 [0007] In another preferred embodiment, the bristle-bearing surface comprises a flexible member. 该刷毛支承表面可以为硬质元件的形式,这些硬质元件相互柔性和弹性连接,例如,通过硬质区域之间的硬质材料中的稀疏化(thinning)或者通过弹性体材料如热塑弹性体的方式。 The bristle-bearing surface may be in the form of a rigid element, which rigid elements are connected to flexible and resilient, e.g., by a hard material between the hard region is thinned out (thinning) or by an elastomeric material such as a thermoplastic elastomer way body. 在使用热塑弹性体的情况下,刷毛可直接附接到弹性体中的刷头,或者,优选将刷毛固定到硬质插座中,这些硬质插座本身在弹性体中浮动。 In the case of thermoplastic elastomer bristles can be directly attached to the head of the elastomer, or, preferably, the bristles are fixed to the rigid receptacle, the rigid receptacles which themselves floating in the elastomer. 这些硬质插座可相互连接以提供改进的硬质,或者相互完全分开以将柔性最大化。 These rigid receptacles may be connected to each other to provide improved hard, or completely separated from each other in order to maximize flexibility.

[0008] 在再一个优选实施例中,刷毛支承表面包括柔性构件,该柔性构件包括柔性膜,柔性膜支撑刷毛束。 [0008] In a further preferred embodiment, the bristle-bearing surface comprises a flexible member, the flexible member comprises a flexible membrane, the flexible membrane supporting tufts of bristles. 优选柔性膜跨越刷头并在硬质刷头周缘附接到刷头。 Preferably the flexible membrane across the head and a hard brush head attached to the periphery of the head. 膜的下面是腔室, 腔室由该罩盖在腔室的基部关闭。 Under the membrane chamber is the chamber of the cap at the base of the chamber is closed. [0009] 该罩盖可附接到刷头的其余部分且通过这种附接在腔室的基部将腔室关闭。 [0009] The cover may be attached to the remainder of the head and is attached at the base of this chamber, the chamber closed. 该罩 The cover

盖的附接可通过机械方式进行,如摩擦配合或咬合配合(click-fit)。 The cover may be attached by mechanical means, such as friction fit or snap fit (click-fit). 该罩盖的附接还可通 The cover may also be attached through

过化学方式进行,如粘合剂。 Through chemical means, such as adhesive. 该罩盖还可以焊接到刷头,如通过热焊或声焊。 The cover may also be welded to the head, such as by heat sealing or sonic welding.

[0010] 优选该罩盖是透明的。 [0010] The cover is preferably transparent. 在牙刷的刷毛支承表面包括柔性元件的情况下更希望该罩 In the case of the toothbrush bristle-bearing surface comprises a flexible element of the cover is more desirable

盖是透明的,因为透明的罩盖允许使用者在视觉上从下面感受刷头的柔性,而这种感受并 The lid is transparent, since the transparent cover allows a user's visual experience from below the flexible brush head, and this feeling and

不受到刷毛的视觉阻碍,而且允许进行改进处理,因为在由刷毛分布机将刷毛束固定到刷 No visual obstruction by the bristles, but allows for improved handling, because the bundle of bristles to a brush bristle distributed stationary

头中时可通过在硬质浮动块下面应用支撑来固定刷毛。 When the support head may be applied to the hard bristles secured below with the slider. 这在使用柔性刷头时尤其有利,因 This is particularly advantageous when using a flexible brush, because

为仅有的选择会是在结合到刷头之前将每个刷毛块分布。 As the only choice would be incorporated into the brush head before the distribution of each bristle block. 因此,在优选实施例中,刷毛支承 Thus, in this embodiment, in the preferred embodiment the bristle-bearing

表面包括刷毛束,利用固定技术将这些刷毛束固定到刷毛支承表面。 Surfaces include bristle bundles, these bundles of bristles secured to the bristle-bearing surface using securing techniques.

[0011] 在另一个优选实施例中并且在使用柔性膜以向刷头提供柔性的情况下,优选将刷毛束埋入硬质插座中,这些硬质插座本身埋入膜中。 [0011] In a further preferred embodiment and in the embodiment of a flexible film to provide flexibility of the brush head, tufts of bristles embedded in the preferably rigid receptacle, the rigid receptacles embedded in the membrane itself. 优选这些硬质插座伸过膜以使这些硬质插座与膜的结合最大化。 Preferably, these rigid receptacles extending through the membrane so that the coupling socket maximize these hard films. 而且,膜中的这种布置还允许硬质插座在膜中摇动,而并不损害插座与膜之间的接触面且插座也不会变得松弛。 Further, the film also allow this arrangement rigid receptacles shaking in the film, without damage to the contact surfaces between the socket and the socket and the film does not become slack. 优选将这些硬质插座的形状制成它们在膜下面的表面大于它们在膜上面的表面。 The shape is preferably made of rigid receptacles such that they are larger than the upper surface of the membrane below the surface of the membrane. 这也会有助于在摇动期间稳定膜中的插座。 This will also help to stabilize the membrane of the socket during the shaking. 在摇动插座时,将插座的一侧向上推动。 When shaken receptacle, the side of the socket is pushed up. 这样就以在将插座拉动而离开膜时膜不太可能与插座分离的方式从下面向膜施加压力。 Thus in the receptacle when the film is pulled away from the film the film may not facing the socket separate manner from the lower pressure is applied.

[0012] 在再一个优选实施例中,刷毛支承表面成拱凸状而离开腔室。 [0012] In a further preferred embodiment, the bristle-bearing surface of convex arch away from the chamber. 在此实施例中,设想腔室可能会由拱凸状所界定且没有由刷头的其余部分所形成的凹进。 In this embodiment, the chamber may be envisaged without the remainder of the head by a recess formed will be defined by a convex arch.

[0013] 可用任何流体来填充刷头中的腔室,如空气、水、凝胶等。 [0013] Any fluid can be used to fill the chamber in the head, such as air, water, gel or the like. 而且,可向腔室施加压力而使其高于或低于大气压力,以向刷头提供某种柔性轮廓。 Further, pressure may be applied to the chamber to be higher than or lower than the atmospheric pressure, to provide some flexibility to the contour of the head.

[0014] 在另一方面,本发明提供一种制造牙刷的方法,这种方法包括以下步骤: [0014] In another aspect, the present invention provides a method of manufacturing a toothbrush, the method comprising the steps of:

[0015] (a)用硬质塑料模制刷头和手柄,刷头具有硬质周缘,该周缘界定刷头的外部尺 External foot [0015] (a) a rigid plastics molding with the head and a handle, the head having a rigid periphery, defining the periphery of the head
