Abstract

The bed (2) has height adjusting unit, weight measuring unit and alarm circuit that are arranged on the bed frame. The support surface of the bed is adjusted in vertical manner using height adjusting unit. The alarm unit is provided to alert the maintenance personnel with short message service (SMS), when the patient is not present in the bed after the elapse of specific time.

Description

  • Pflegebetten, wie sie in der häuslichen- und stationären ihre Anwendung finden (vgl. Anlage 8), werden nach dem heutigen Stand in den verschiedensten Ausführungen angeboten. Care beds, as they are used in the häuslichen- and stationary (see. Appendix 8), are offered according to the state in various designs. Die Ausführungen variieren in Pflegebetten mit einer festen Höhe als auch mit verstellbaren Höhen, die mithilfe einer Mechanik und eines E-Motors oder auch mithilfe einer Mechanik und einer Hydraulik eine Höhenverstellung ermöglichen. The embodiments vary in nursing beds with a fixed height and with adjustable heights, which enable a height adjustment by means of a mechanical and an electric motor or by means of a mechanical and hydraulic.
  • Ein Pflegebett mit integrierter Gewichtsmessung ist jedoch nicht erhältlich. However, a nursing bed with integrated weight measurement is not available. Die Gewichtsmessung der zu pflegenden Personen erfolgt beispielsweise über eine Bettwaage (vgl. Anlage 8, Weighing the people to be cared for example via a bed scale (see. Appendix 8, ). ).
  • Bei den Pflegebetten, bei der die Höhenverstellung mithilfe einer „Scherenmechanik” angeboten wird, ist eine offene Konstruktion der freizugängliche Mechaniken deutlich sichtbar (vgl. Anlage 8, The care beds, in which the height adjustment is offered using a "scissor mechanism," is an open design of the freely accessible mechanisms clearly visible (see. Appendix 8, - ), die unter bestimmten Umständen eine Quetschgefahr beinhalten (Unfallverhütung) sowie die Reinigung – nur erschwerend vorzunehmen ist (Hygiene). ) That involve a risk of crushing under certain circumstances (accident prevention) and cleaning - make only complication is (hygiene).
  • Pflegebetten mit 4 Hubsäulen (vgl. Anlage 8, Nursing beds with lifting columns 4 (see FIG. 8 system, ) haben zwar nicht den Mangel einer offenen Konstruktion mit Quetschgefahr, jedoch haben alle Systeme die gleiche Problematik, dass der Schwerpunk in eine obere Position mit zunehmender Höhe verschoben wird und die Standsicherheit reduziert wird. Although) do not have the deficiency of an open construction with crushing, however, all systems have the same problem that emphasis and focus is moved to an upper position with increasing height and the stability is reduced.
  • Aus den beschriebenen Mängeln der Bereiche Unfallverhütung und Hygiene sowie einer Gewichtsmessung, die zur Überwachung des Gesundheitszustandes der Patienten vorgeschrieben ist, ergeben sich folgende Problemstellungen: From the described deficiencies of the areas of accident prevention and hygiene as well as a weight measurement that is required to monitor the health status of the patient, results in the following problems:
    • 1. Unfallverhütung von Quetschungen, 1. Accident prevention of bruises,
    • 2. Verbesserung der Hygiene (hier verbesserte Reinigungsmöglichkeiten), 2. improve hygiene (improved cleaning possibilities here)
    • 3. Integration einer Gewichtsmessung zur Überwachung des Gesundheitszustandes des Patienten, 3. Integration of a weight measurement for monitoring of the patient's health status,
    • 4. Verbesserung der Arbeitsbedingungen bei der Gewichtsmessung des Patienten für das Pflegepersonal. 4. Improving the working conditions in the weight measurement of the patient to the nursing staff.
  • Um die vorliegenden Problemstellungen begegnen zu können, bietet sich einen Konstruktion an, bei der das Pflegebett mit Rahmen (der Korpus) auf dem Fußboden verbleibt, jedoch nur die Liegefläche höhenverstellt wird. To meet the present problems, to offer a structure in which the nursing home bed with frame (the body) remains on the floor, but only the lying surface is adjusted in height.
  • Da die Höhenverstellung über eine Einsäulenkonstruktion oder mehrerer Säulenkonstruktionen erfolgt und somit über konstante definierte Auflageflächen verfügt, kann eine Gewichtsmessung mit Hilfe verschiedenster Sensoren erfolgen. Since the height is adjusted via a Einsäulenkonstruktion or more columns constructions and thus has constant defined contact surfaces, a weight measurement can be done using verschiedenster sensors.
  • Vorteil dieser Konstruktion ist, dass die Grundfläche (z. B. Breite und Länge des Bettes) zur erforderlichen Statik frei gestaltet werden kann, wobei dadurch die Standsicherheit deutlich verbessert wird. The advantage of this construction is that the base (z. B. width and length of the bed) to the required static can be freely designed, thereby the stability is significantly improved.
  • Diese geschlossene Konstruktion hat weiterhin den Vorteil, These closed-back design also has the advantage,
    • • dass eine Reduzierung der Unfallgefahr durch Quetschungen etc. ebenfalls deutlich reduziert wird, • that a reduction in the risk of accidents by crushing etc. also is significantly reduced,
    • • die Grundreinigung des Pflegebettes erleichtert wird, • facilitating the basic cleaning of the nursing bed,
    • • eine Gewichtsmessung, Gewichtsüberwachung sowie einer Alarmüberwachung in das Bett integriert werden kann, • a weight measurement, weight control and an alarm monitoring can be integrated into the bed,
    • • ausreichend Stauraum zur Verfügung steht, um z. • there is enough storage space available to z. B. Kompressoren für Dekubitusmatratzen oder sonstige medizinische Hilfsmittel außerhalb des Sichtbereiches des zu pflegenden Menschen unterbringen zu können. to accommodate as compressors for decubitus mattresses or other medical equipment out of sight of the people to be cared for.
  • Das in der The in 1 1 dargestellte Pflegebett zeigt vereinfacht ein Liegesystem, welches aus einem Korpus besteht und bei dem die Höhenverstellung über eine Mittelsäule (Pos. Nursing bed shown schematically shows a lying system, consisting of a body and in which the height adjustment by means of a central pillar (Pos. 5 5 ) verfügt. ) Has. In In 2 2 ist ein Pflegebett dargestellt, welches über mehrere Säulenkonstruktionen verfügt. a nursing bed is shown which has a plurality of column constructions.
  • Aus den From the 1 1 und and 2 2 ist zu ersehen, dass bei Anwendung der Höhenverstellung, der Korpus des Bettes auf dem Fußboden verbleibt, wobei die Liegefläche mithilfe des Liegerahmens (Pos. It can be seen that remains when using the height adjustment, the body of the bed on the floor, the deck surface (using the reclining frame Pos. 2 2 ) auf die gewünschte Höhe verfährt. ) Moves to the desired height.
  • Der Stauraum zur Nutzung von zusätzlichen medizinischen Hilfsmitteln ergibt sich aus der Differenz des Freiraumes der Säulenkonstruktion und des Korpus. The storage space for the use of additional medical supplies resulting from the difference of the free space of the pillar structure and the body.
