Abstract

Device for detecting and warning of the presence of urine in children's diapers. The invention relates to a device permitting it to be known immediately that the child has urinated, without any manual checks or waiting. It consists of a transmitter (1) connected to a sensor (3) which will detect whether the diaper (17) is wet and which will transmit the signal by electrical waves to the receiver (2) and which will actuate the warning device in order to advise those concerned, and of a diaper equipped with a small pocket (13) for housing the sensor and an opening (16) set aside for the sensor and which directs it towards its final measuring location. The device according to the invention is particularly intended for parents at the time of changing babies' diapers. <IMAGE>

Description

La présente invention concerne un dispositif pour détecter et avertir la présence de l'urine dans les couches-culottes d'enfants. The present invention relates to a device for detecting and notifying the presence of urine in children's diapers.

Traditionnellemnt pour apercevoir que les couches-culottes d'enfants sont mouillées, nous devons attendre que les enfants manifestent de différentes manières avant d'entreprendre des contrôles nécessaires soit visuellements ou soit manuellements. Traditionnellemnt to see that the children diapers are wet, we should expect that children manifest in different ways before undertaking the necessary checks to be visuellements or be cases manually.

Le dispositif selon invention permet de remédier à cet inconvénient. The device invention overcomes this drawback. Il comporte en effet selon une première caractéristique un capteur-émetteur radioélectrique, un récepteur radioélectrique et une couche-culotte. It comprises in effect according to a first characteristic sensor a radio transmitter, a radio receiver and a diaper.

Le capteur-émetteur radioélectrique est constitué des éléments électriques, électroniques, et circuits intégrés. The radio transmitter-sensor consists of electrical components, electronic, and integrated circuits.

Il se compose de : le capteur des signaux de modulation par la résistivité de l'urine, le modulateur suivi d'un amplificateur, l'oscillateur de fréquence, l'antenne et l'alimentation. It consists of: the sensor modulation signals by the resistivity of the urine, the modulator followed by an amplifier, the frequency oscillator, the antenna and feeding.

Selon une forme de réalisation préférentielle et pour des raisons pratiques, le capteur-émetteur ne doit en aucun cas gêner l'enfant qui le porte. According to a preferred embodiment and for practical reasons, the sensor-transmitter must not in any case hinder the child wearing it.

En référence à la figure 1 ,les parties constituantes d'émetteur (1) c'est à dire : le modulateur (4), l'oscillat- eur (5), l'antenne (6) et l'alimentation (7) doivent être intégrées dans un boîtier compact dit l'émetteur (1), à titre d'example non limitatif, l'émetteur aura des dimentions de l'ordre de 2,5 cm pour la longueur, 1,5 cm pour la largeur, et 0,5 cm por la hauteur. Referring to Figure 1, the transmitter component parts (1) that is to say: the modulator (4), the oscillat- eur (5), the antenna (6) and the supply (7) must be integrated into a compact said transmitter (1), by way of non-limiting example, the transmitter will dimentions of the order of 2.5 cm in length, 1.5 cm in width, and 0.5 cm height por.

Le capteur (3) est constitué par deux électrodes (8) forment un contact ouvert qui relient à l'émetteur (1) par deux filaments électriques. The sensor (3) consists of two electrodes (8) form an open contact connecting to the transmitter (1) via two electrical filaments.

Selon le mode de fonctionnement de capteur-émetteur, le dispositif est au repos en absence d'urine, au cas contraire l'urine provoque un courant électrique entre les deux électrodes (8) du capteur qui à son tour actionner le modulateur (4) ensuite l'oscillateur de fréquence (5) et le signal est alors appliqué à l'antenne (6) qui le transmettra à l'antenne (9) du récepteur. Depending on the mode of operation of the sensor-transmitter, the device is at rest in the absence of urine, the urine otherwise causes an electric current between the two electrodes (8) of the sensor which in turn actuate the modulator (4) then the frequency of oscillator (5) and the signal is then applied to the antenna (6) for transmission to the antenna (9) of the receiver. Le capteur-émetteur est récupérable après chaque utilisation. The sensor-transmitter is recoverable after each use. Il est autonome d'ou l'alimentation par piles sera nécessaire. It is autonomous or battery supply will be needed.

Selon le mode de réalisation, le récepteur radioélectrique est constitué également des éléments électriques, électroniques et circuits intégrés. According to the embodiment, the radio receiver is also set up electrical components, electronic and integrated circuits.

En référence à la figure 2, il se compose d'une antenne de réception (9), un récepteur (2) de fréquence et des sorties vers les avertisseurs sonores (10) comme bip-bip, haut-parleur,... ou des sorties vers les avertisseurs visuels (11) comme: lampe d'éclairage, diode luminescent LED, etc... Referring to Figure 2, it consists of a receiving antenna (9), a receiver (2) frequency and outputs to the horns (10) as beeping, loudspeaker, ... or outputs to the visual warning (11) as: lighting lamp, luminescent diode LED, etc ...

Selon le mode de fonctionnnemnt, le récepteur devra être en état de fonctionnement permanent. Depending on the mode of fonctionnnemnt, the receiver shall be capable of continuous operation. l'alimentation se fera au secteur de préférence. Food will be done preferably sector. Il faut que le récepteur soit étudier de façon qu'il capte confortablement les signaux émis par l'émetteur. It is necessary that the receiver is studied so that it picks up comfortably by the transmitter transmitted signals. Dès lors qu'il reçois ces signaux celui-ci agira sur l'avertisseur afin de prévenir les intéressés. Once it receive these signals it will act on the alarm to prevent interested. I1 s'agit par conséquent de reconnaître à distance que la couche est mouillée. I1 is therefore remote recognize that the diaper is wet. l'identification sera sonore ou visuelle. identification will be audible or visual.

La couche-culotte est conçue de façon pouvoir loger le capteur-émetteur afin qu'il puisse fonctionner normalement, en effet une pochette avec rabat est prévue en partie supérieure de la face avant centrale de la couche culotte. The diaper is designed to accommodate the sensor-transmitter so that it can function normally, in fact with a pocket flap is provided in the upper part of the central front face of the diaper. Le capteur sera placer dans une embouchure par intermédiaire d'une orifice en dessous de cette pochette et qui relie la pochette à l'embouchure. The sensor is placed in a mouth by means of an orifice below said cover and connecting the cover to the mouth.

Selon les modes de réalisation According to embodiments
- La pochette, le rabat et l'embouchure peuvent être réalisés de la même matière que la couche-culotte. - The cover, the flap and the mouth can be made of the same material as the diaper.

- La pochette peut avoir de la forme suivante la plus grande face de l'émetteur, dans ce cas particulier, il est rectangle. - The cover can have the following form the largest surface of the issuer, in this particular case, it is rectangle.

- Le rabat peut être placer au dessus de la pochette, il peut comporter une partie adhésive (12) - The flap can be placed over the pouch, it may comprise an adhesive portion (12)
- Une orifice (15) sur la paroi inférieure de la pochette peut être prévue pour relier la pochette à l'embouchure (16). - An orifice (15) on the bottom wall of the cover may be provided for connecting the pouch at the mouth (16).
