Description

  • [0001]
    L'invention se rapporte un lit à barrière latérale escamotable, notamment un lit de malade ; The invention relates to a retractable side barrier bed, in particular a sickbed; elle concerne plus particulièrement un perfectionnement permettant d'augmenter la hauteur de protection offerte par ladite barrière, toutes choses égales par ailleurs. it relates more particularly to an improvement for increasing the protection offered by said barrier height, other things being equal.
  • [0002]
    On connaît un lit de malade équipé d'une barrière latérale montée le long du cadre ou châssis de ce lit. There is known a hospital bed equipped with a side barrier mounted along the frame or chassis of the bed Pour permettre l'accès au lit et faciliter les soins, il est connu de combiner une telle barrière à un système mécanique à parallélogramme déformable comprenant deux bras pivotants rattachés au cadre fixe du lit ou à une structure équivalente. To allow access to the bed and supporting care, it is known to combine such a barrier to a deformable parallelogram mechanical system comprising two swinging arms attached to the fixed frame of the bed or to an equivalent structure. Dans ces conditions, il est possible d'abaisser ou remonter la barrière, sensiblement parallèlement à elle-même, le mouvement s'accompagnant d'une translation-rotation parallèlement à la dimension longitudinale du lit. Under these conditions, it is possible to raise or lower the barrier, substantially parallel to itself, the motion being accompanied by a rotation-translation parallel to the longitudinal dimension of the bed Dans un tel mécanisme, il est souhaitable d'augmenter la distance entre la barre supérieure de la barrière en position relevée et le plan de couchage. In such a mechanism, it is desirable to increase the distance between the top bar of the fence in upright position and the lying surface. Cependant, dans cette même position, le bord inférieur de la barrière ne doit pas être situé trop haut. However, in this same position, the lower edge of the barrier should not be set too high.
  • [0003]
    Par ailleurs, en position abaissée, le bord inférieur de la barrière doit être à une distance suffisante du sol. Furthermore, in the lowered position, the lower edge of the barrier should be at a sufficient distance from the ground. Tous ces impératifs font l'objet d'une norme. All these requirements are subject to a standard. La prise en compte de toutes ces contraintes conduirait à augmenter la hauteur du plan de couchage pour pouvoir associer au lit une barrière plus haute. The consideration of all these constraints lead to increase the lying surface height to be able to associate the bed a higher barrier. Ceci n'est pas souhaitable car ledit plan de couchage doit être relativement bas pour réduire les risques de chute du patient, et faciliter le transfert du patient hors du lit et inversement. This is undesirable because said sleeping surface should be relatively low to reduce the risk of patient falls, and facilitate the transfer of the patient from the bed and vice versa.
  • [0004]
    D'un point de vue mécanique, il est connu de "compléter" le système à parallélogramme déformable par une barre inférieure articulée aux deux bras par ses deux extrémités. From a mechanical point of view, it is known to "complete" the deformable parallelogram system by a lower rod articulated to the two arms by its two ends. Cette barre qui sera appelée ci-après "barre de déploiement", a pour but de fiabiliser la cinématique du système en évitant des blocages. This bar will be referred to hereinafter as "roll bar", aims to ensure reliable system kinematics avoiding blockages. Classiquement, cette barre est installée dans un caisson fixé sous le cadre du lit et relativement encombrant. Conventionally, this bar is installed in a box fixed beneath the bed frame and relatively bulky.
  • [0005]
    Par ailleurs, le document Moreover, the document EP 1 053 735 EP 1053735 décrit une barrière articulée dans son propre plan et comprenant deux parties respectivement inférieure et supérieure, approximativement en forme de L. La cinématique du système de déploiement est telle que les deux parties sont plus éloignées l'une de l'autre lorsque la barrière est en position haute que lorsqu'elle est en position basse. describes an articulated barrier in its own plane and comprising two, respectively top and bottom, approximately L-shaped The kinematics of the deployment system is such that the two portions are further apart from each other when the barrier is higher than when it is in low position. L'espace entre les deux parties peut être une cause d'accident. The space between the two parts can be a cause of accidents. De plus, la barrière en position basse occupe une place relativement importante longitudinalement. In addition, the low position barrier occupies a relatively important place longitudinally.
  • [0006]
    L'invention vise à concilier tous les impératifs mentionnés plus haut tout en évitant les inconvénients du dispositif antérieur qui vient d'être analysé. The invention aims to reconcile all the requirements mentioned above while avoiding the disadvantages of prior art device that has just been analyzed.
  • [0007]
    A cet effet, l'invention concerne un lit à barrière latérale escamotable du type comportant un élément de barrière principal associé à un mécanisme à parallélogramme déformable articulé à un cadre du lit ou structure analogue, ledit mécanisme comprenant deux bras parallèles comportant chacun une articulation audit cadre et une articulation audit élément de barrière principal, une barre de déploiement étant en outre articulée entre lesdits bras, caractérisé en ce que ledit mécanisme est complété par un prolongateur inférieur rattaché à ladite barre de déploiement par une liaison à coulissement et en ce que ledit prolongateur est assujetti à coulisser le long de moyens de guidage vertical, portés par ledit élément de barrière principal. To this end, the invention relates to a retractable side barrier bed of the type comprising a main barrier element associated with a deformable-parallelogram mechanism hinged to a bed frame or the like structure, said mechanism comprising two parallel arms each having a said articulation frame and an articulation to said main barrier element, a deployment rod being further articulated between said arms, characterized in that said mechanism is completed by a lower extension attached to said deployment rod by a sliding connection and in that said extension is subject to slide along vertical guide means carried by said main barrier element.
  • [0008]
    Par exemple, ledit prolongateur peut être porté par deux axes respectivement solidaires de la barre de déploiement, chaque axe étant engagé dans une lumière du prolongateur. For example, said extension may be carried by two pins respectively secured to the roll bar, each pin being engaged in a lumen of the extension. L'agencement peut évidemment être inversé. The arrangement may of course be reversed.
  • [0009]
    Des moyens de verrouillage qui ne font pas partie de l'invention et ne seront pas décrits en détail sont prévus pour définir les positions stables, haute, basse et éventuellement intermédiaire de l'élément de barrière principal et par voie de conséquence celles du prolongateur qui, selon un mode de réalisation possible, se trouve déployé vers le bas lorsque l'élément de barrière principal est en position haute et, au contraire, rétracté à l'intérieur de l'élément de barrière principal lorsque celui-ci est en position basse. Locking means which are not part of the invention and will not be described in detail are provided to define the stable positions, high, low and possibly via the main barrier element and consequently those of the extender which , according to a possible embodiment, is deployed downward when the main barrier element is in the high position and, on the contrary, retracted inside the main barrier element when the latter is in the low position .

  • [0011]
    Sur les dessins, on a représenté schématiquement et partiellement un lit 11 comprenant un cadre 12 ou châssis analogue, fixe, surmonté d'un plan de couchage sur lequel est posé un matelas 14. Une barrière latérale escamotable 16 est agencée sur le côté de ce lit ; In the drawings, there is shown schematically and partially a bed 11 including a frame 12 or the like frame, fixed, surmounted by a coating map on which is placed a mattress 14. A retractable side barrier 16 is arranged on the side of this bed ; elle peut se déplacer globalement par rotation-translation entre une position haute ( it can move generally by rotation-translation between an upper position ( figure 5 Figure 5 ) et une position basse ( ) And a low position ( figure 7 Figure 7 ). ). La The figure 6 Figure 6 représente une position intermédiaire. represents an intermediate position. La barrière 16 comporte un élément de barrière principal 18 associé à un mécanisme à parallélogramme déformable 19 articulé au cadre 12 du lit. The barrier 16 comprises a main barrier element 18 associated with a deformable-parallelogram mechanism 19 hinged to frame 12 of the bed Le mécanisme comporte deux bras parallèles pivotants 20a 20b comprenant chacun une articulation 21a, 21b audit cadre et une articulation 22a, 22b à l'élément de barrière principal. The mechanism comprises two swivel parallel arms 20a 20b each comprising a hinge 21a, 21b to said frame and a hinge 22a, 22b to the main barrier element. De plus, de façon connue en soi, une barre de déploiement 26 est articulée entre lesdits bras, 20a, 20b, dans l'exemple au moyen de deux axes d'articulation 50a, 50b. In addition, in known manner, a roll bar 26 is hinged between said arms 20a, 20b, in the example by means of two hinge pins 50a, 50b.
  • [0012]
    Dans l'exemple décrit, en référence aux In the example described, with reference to figures 1 à 3 Figures 1 to 3 et and 5 5 à at 7 7 , le mécanisme comporte un support longitudinal 28 fixé à la partie inférieure de l'élément de barrière principal 18 et faisant partie intégrante de celui-ci. The mechanism includes a longitudinal beam 28 attached to the lower portion of the main barrier element 18 and forming an integral part thereof. Ce support longitudinal délimite avec l'élément de barrière principal 18 une cavité 30 présentant une ouverture longitudinale 32, s'étendant le long de son bord inférieur. This longitudinal member defines with the main barrier element 18 a cavity 30 having a longitudinal opening 32 extending along its lower edge.
  • [0013]
    Selon une caractéristique importante, le mécanisme est complété par un prolongateur inférieur 34 porté par deux axes 36a, 36b espacés solidaires de ladite barre de déploiement 26. Ledit prolongateur 34 s'étend sur pratiquement toute la longueur de l'élément de barrière principal. According to an important characteristic, the mechanism is completed by a lower extension 34 carried by two axes 36a, 36b spaced integral with said deployment rod 26. Said extension 34 extends over substantially the entire length of the main barrier element. Il est rattaché à la barre de déploiement 26, par une liaison à coulissement. It is attached to the roll bar 26, by a sliding connection. Ainsi, les axes 36a, 36b sont engagés dans des lumières 38a, 38b correspondantes du prolongateur 34. Ce dernier est assujetti à coulisser le long de moyens de guidage vertical, portés par ledit élément de barrière principal. Thus, the axes 36a, 36b are engaged in lights 38a, 38b corresponding the extension 34. The latter is secured to slide along vertical guide means carried by said main barrier element. Plus précisément, ces moyens de guidage sont ici constitués par des parois intérieures de la cavité 30, laquelle abrite la partie supérieure du prolongateur. More specifically, these guide means are constituted by the inner walls of the cavity 30, which houses the upper part of the extender. Dans l'exemple, les extrémités 40a, 40b dudit prolongateur, espacées longitudinalement, sont en contact coulissant avec deux parois d'extrémité 41a, 41b correspondantes de la cavité 30. Cette dernière abrite aussi la barre de déploiement 26 à laquelle le prolongateur 34 est rattaché. In the example, the ends 40a, 40b of said extension, longitudinally spaced, are in sliding contact with two end walls 41a, 41b corresponding to the cavity 30. The latter also houses the roll bar 26 to which the extension 34 is attached to. Dans l'exemple décrit, la barre de déploiement 26 est horizontale ainsi que la liaison à coulissement (36a, 38a - 36b, 38b) mais ce n'est pas obligatoire, l'agencement pouvant être quelque peu oblique. In the example described, the roll bar 26 is horizontal and the slide link (36a, 38a - 36b, 38b) but this is not required, the arrangement can be somewhat oblique.
  • [0014]
    Dans l'exemple, les deux bras parallèles 20a, 20b sont extérieurs à la cavité délimitée par le support 28. Ils s'étendent entre le bord du lit et l'élément de barrière principal 18 proprement dit. In the example, the two parallel arms 20a, 20b are outside the cavity defined by the support 28. They extend between the edge of the bed and the main barrier element 18 itself.
  • [0015]
    Le prolongateur 34 s'étend partiellement au-delà de l'ouverture longitudinale inférieure 32 de la cavité, d'une distance qui dépend de la position de l'élément de barrière 18 par rapport au plan de couchage. The extension 34 extends partially beyond the lower longitudinal opening 32 of the cavity by a distance which depends on the position of the barrier member 18 relative to the lying surface. Lorsque la barrière est relevée à son maximum, le prolongateur 34 ressort de la cavité en sorte que la hauteur utile de la barrière est maximum. When the gate is raised to its maximum, the extension spring 34 of the cavity so that the effective barrier height is maximum. Au contraire, lorsque la barrière est dans sa position la plus basse, le prolongateur 34 est rétracté à l'intérieur de la cavité en sorte qu'une distance suffisante est maintenue entre le bord inférieur de la barrière et le sol. On the contrary, when the barrier is in its lowest position, the extension 34 is retracted within the cavity so that a sufficient distance is maintained between the lower edge of the barrier and the ground.
  • [0016]
    Comme on le voit sur les As seen on figures 1 à 3 Figures 1 to 3 , la barre de déploiement 26 est engagée dans une fente médiane 45 allongée dudit prolongateur. , The roll bar 26 is engaged in a central elongated slot 45 of said extension. Chacun des deux axes 36a, 36b portés par la barre de déploiement s'étend de part et d'autre de celle-ci et la lumière 38a, 38b correspondante définie dans la paroi du prolongateur, est double et s'étend de part et d'autre de ladite fente médiane 45. Dans l'exemple représenté sur les Each of the two axes 36a, 36b carried by the roll bar extends from both sides thereof and the light 38a, 38b corresponding defined in the wall of the riser, is double and extends on both the other of said medial slot 45. in the example shown in figures 1 à 3 Figures 1 to 3 , chaque bras 20a, 20b porte un axe d'articulation 50a, 50b relié à ladite barre de déploiement. Each arm 20a, 20b carries a hinge pin 50a, 50b connected to said deployment rod. Cet axe traverse une lumière courbe 52a, 52b pratiquée au travers de la paroi du support 28. La forme et les dimensions d'une telle lumière sont déterminées pour que l'axe d'articulation 50a, 50b qui la traverse ne rencontre pas la paroi du support. This axis passes through a curved slot 52a, 52b formed through the wall of the support 28. The shape and dimensions of such light are determined so that the hinge pin 50a, 50b therethrough does not encounter the wall of the support. La butée basse de la barrière peut néanmoins se faire sur ces lumières. Lower stop the barrier may still be on these lights.
  • [0017]
    En variante, on peut adopter le montage de la Alternatively, one can adopt the installation of the figure 4 Figure 4 . . Dans ce cas, l'articulation entre chaque bras 20a (ou 20b) et l'élément de barrière 18 comprend un axe d'articulation 22a (ou 22b) qui s'engage dans ladite cavité 30. Cet axe porte un support intérieur 56, entièrement logé à l'intérieur de la cavité. In this case, the joint between each arm 20a (or 20b) and the barrier member 18 comprises a hinge pin 22a (or 22b) which engages in said cavity 30. This shaft carries an inner support 56, completely housed inside the cavity. Bien entendu, le bras 20a (ou 20b), l'axe 22a (ou 22b) et le support intérieur 56 sont solidaires, l'ensemble étant articulé par rapport au cadre du lit. Of course, the arm 20a (or 20b), the axis 22a (or 22b) and the inner holder 56 are secured, the assembly being articulated with respect to the bed frame Le support intérieur 56 porte un axe d'articulation 50a (ou 50b) lié à ladite barre de déploiement 26. Ainsi, ladite barre de déploiement 26 est montée articulée entre les deux axes 50a, 50b portés par les deux supports intérieurs 56. De cette façon, la paroi du support 28 ne comporte plus de lumière courbe comme dans le mode de réalisation précédemment décrit, ce qui est favorable du point de vue de l'hygiène. The inner frame 56 carries a hinge axis 50a (or 50b) connected to said deployment rod 26. Thus, said deployment bar 26 is hinged between the two axes 50a, 50b carried by the two inner supports 56. In this way, the wall of support 28 no longer includes a light curve as in the embodiment described above, which is favorable from the point of view of hygiene.
  • [0018]
    Selon encore une autre variante, les extrémités supérieures des deux bras pourraient être engagées dans la cavité. According to yet another variant, the upper ends of two arms can be engaged in the cavity.
  • [0019]
    Le mode de réalisation des The embodiment of figures 8 et 9 Figures 8 and 9 comprend, par analogie au précédent, un élément de barrière principal 118, comprenant une rampe 118a, faisant partie d'un mécanisme à parallélogramme déformable 119 articulé au cadre 112 du lit. includes, by analogy to the above, a main barrier element 118, comprising a ramp 118a, forming part of a deformable parallelogram mechanism 119 hinged to the frame 112 of the bed Ce mécanisme comporte deux bras parallèles pivotants 120a, 120b comprenant chacun une articulation 121a, 121b au cadre 112 et une articulation 122a, 122b à l'élément de barrière principal. This mechanism comprises two swivel parallel arms 120a, 120b each comprising a hinge 121a, 121b to the frame 112 and a hinge 122a, 122b to the main barrier element. Une barre de déploiement 126 est articulée entre les bras 120a, 120b au moyen de deux axes d'articulation 150a, 150b. A deployment rod 126 is articulated between the arms 120a, 120b by means of two hinge pins 150a, 150b. Le prolongateur 134 est ici une structure creuse qui abrite notamment la barre de déploiement 126 et deux montants verticaux 155a, 155b de l'élément de barrière principal 118. The extender 134 is here a hollow structure which houses the roll bar 126 and two vertical uprights 155a, 155b of the main barrier element 118.
  • [0020]
    Les articulations 122a, 122b se situent respectivement aux extrémités inférieures de ces montants 155a, 155b. The joints 122a, 122b are respectively the lower ends of the uprights 155a, 155b. Ces derniers coulissent dans des guides 157a, 157b du prolongateur 134. They slide in guides 157a, 157b of the extension 134.
  • [0021]
    Les axes 150a, 150b sont aussi engagés dans des lumières 159a, 159b du prolongateur 134 pour former une liaison à coulissement, comme dans l'exemple précédent, entre ledit prolongateur 134 et la barre de déploiement 126. La cinématique de cette variante est semblable à celle du mode de réalisation précédent, la rampe 118a de l'élément de barrière principal 118 étant plus écartée du bord supérieur du prolongateur 134 lorsque le système est en position haute ( The axes 150a, 150b are also engaged in lights 159a, 159b of the extension 134 to form a sliding connection, as in the previous example, between said extension 134 and the deployment rod 126. The kinematics of this embodiment is similar to that of the previous embodiment, the ramp 118a of the main barrier element 118 being further away from the upper edge of the extension 134 when the system is in the high position ( figure 8 Figure 8 ) que lorsqu'il se trouve en position basse ( ) That when in the low position ( figure 9 Figure 9 ). ).
