Abstract

A mattress possessing particular utility in hospitals and nursing homes reduces the incidence and severity of bed sores, improves muscle tone and reduces back ache. The mattress features plural sections of foam whose densities and degrees of compressibility vary, so that regulated pressures will be applied to different sections of the body for maximum comfort. The mattress may be turned to change the pressure points on the body periodically as the need arises. The mattress is employed in conjunction with a foam padded base or underlay having a relatively rigid component.

No. 233,687 filed on the 10th day of March, 1972, now abandoned.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION A definite need exists for an improved bed mattress particularly in hospitals and nursing homes where some patients are confined to the bed for long periods of time. Also in the home, certain individuals with chronic back complaints experience the need for a mattress which would tend to ease such complaints.

The prior art contains quite a number of teachings pertaining to sectional mattresses and mattresses having variable density compoents but none of these prior art structures has proven to be completely satisfactory in terms of satisfying the above needs of bedridden hospital and nursing home patients, in particular.

Accordingly, the main objective of the invention is to provide a mattress which is constructed to meet the needs of the art more completely than any known prior art proposal. In accordance with the invention, a multisection mattress includes variable density components to support the head, shoulders, back, hips and heels with varying degrees of pressure on these parts of the body to promote maximum comfort and to minimize the occurrence and severity of decubitus ulcers or bed sores. In furtherance of this objective, the mattress is employed in conjunction with and above a base which is additionally padded with foam and the base is constructed in sections so as to be compatible with standard articulated hospital type beds. The base may be one piece or continuous for use upon a conventional home bed.

Other features and advantages of the invention will become apparent during the course of the following detailed description, and among these features are the economy of construction of the mattress and base, comparable to the cost of a good-quality hospital mattress and the durability of the composite mattress and foundation which will last many years beyond the life of a conventional high quality hospital mattress.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DRAWING FIGURES FIG. 1 is an exploded perspective view of a mattress and foundation therefor embodying the invention shown in association with a conventional hospital bed.

FIG. 2 is an enlarged longitudinal vertical section through the mattress and foundation taken on line 2-2 of FIG. 1.

FIG. 3 is a greatly enlarged fragmentary vertical section through the mattress and foundation taken on the plane of FIG. 2.

FIGS. 4 and 5 are diagrammatic perspective views showing a comparison of the invention and the prior art.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION Referring to the drawings in detail wherein like nu-. merals designate like parts, the numeral designates a sectional variable density mattress inits entirety having a suitable fabric envelope or cover 11. This mattress embodies a head support block or slab 12 of an open cell compressible foamplastic, such as foam polyurethane. In a typical embodiment, the head slab 12 is 36 inches wide by 12 inches long and 6 inches thick. While these dimensions are not extremely critical, they are the most desirable dimensions. However, they may be varied in some cases. The preferred density of the foam employed in the head slab 12 is approximately 1.75-1.85 lbs. per cubic foot. The compressibility of the slab 12 to a thickness of about 4 inches from the relaxed thickness of 6 inches can be expressed in terms of 24-30 lbs. loading on the entire upper surface of the slab.

The midsection of the mattress 10 which supports the shoulders and back of the user is composed of two superposed slabs 13 and 14, each of which measures 36 inches wide by 44 inches long in the embodiment shown and each of which is formed of open cell foam polyurethane or equivalent material. The upper slab 13 is preferably 4 inches thick and the lower slab is 2 inches thick. The density of the upper slab is from 2.2-2.4 lbs. per cubic foot, and the density of the lower slab 14 is from 1.75-1.85 lbs. per cubic foot. The compressibility of the upper slab 13 in the same terms specified for the slab 13 is approximately 38-50 lbs. and for the lower slab 14 is approximately 24-30 lbs.

The mattress 10 further embodies a foot section or slab 15 of the same foam plastic material measuring 36 inches wide by 24 inches long by 6 inches thick. The particular foam used for the foot slab 15 preferably has a density of from 1.75-1.85 lbs. per cubic foot and a compressibility of 24-30 lbs. in the same terms expressed above for the other sections, namely the load necessary on the entire area of the slab to compress a 6 inch slab approximately 2 inches.

It may be seen that the composit mattress 10 contains regions or zones which differ in density and compressibility and each zone is therefore capable of exerting a specifically different pressure or resistance on a particular part of the anatomy of the user. With the mattress positioned as in FIG. 2 and the head of the user adjacent to the slab 12, the mattress will possess a first supporting capability. It may be seen that if the mattress is reversed head-to-foot, or if it is inverted, a second or new set of resistance values will be provided and this is sometimes beneficial in relieving the monotony to the patient and in changing the degrees of pressure on dif ferent parts of the body, which in turn can help relieve bed sores, fatigue and back ache. The mattress as constructed, therefore, is very versatile.

In an alternate embodiment of the invention, a mattress was constructed in which the density of the foam employed in the head slab 12 is approximately 1.6-1.75 lbs. per cubic foot. The compressibility of the slab 12 to a thickness of about 4 inches from the relaxed thickness of 6 inches can be expressed in terms of a 23-29 lb. loading on the entire upper surface of the slab. The slab 12 is 36 inches wide and 18 inches long.

The midsection of the mattress 10 which supports the shoulders and back of the user is composed of two superposed slabs 13 and 14, each of which measures 36 inches wide by 33 inches long in the embodiment shown and each of which is formed of open cell foam polyurethane or equivalent material. The upper slab 13 is preferably 4 inches thick and the lower slab is 2 inches thick. The density of the upper slab is from 2.6-2.75 lbs. per cubic foot, and the density of the lower slab 14 is from 1.6-1 .75 lbs. per cubic foot. The compressibility of the upper slab 13 in the same terms specified for the slab 13 is, approximately 45-55 lbs.

6 inch slab approximately 2 inches.

It had been further determined that the head slab 12 may have a range of densities of from 1.4-1 .55 to 2-2.2 lbs. per cubic foot. The slab 12 may have a rangeof compressibility in the same terms as expressed above of Invention Mattress- All Units on Invention Foundation:

used with a different type of foundation, such as a felt pad or some sort of box spring. In the total assembly, the foundation foam slabs or pads supplement and add to the net supportive effect of the mattress in such a way as to produce the greatest comfort and beneficial effect for the user or patient. The several sections of the foundation 16 are preferably enclosed in individual covers 'or envelopes 34, 35, 36 and 37, as shown.

To further emphasize the mertis of the invention in comparison to conventional extra firm solid mattresses. medium firm and regular hospital mattresses, a comparison chart is shown below. In this chart. the pressures exerted on different parts of the body are indisateqjn mil ime srw s x,

Quite naturally, the test results will differ for each person and in this respect his to be understood that the. invention is capable of automatically compensating to produce and 15 is the same-as the figure given for slab 12 above. the most advantageous supportive pressure on any per- An important feature of the invention resides in the provision .of a foundation or base 16 to be used in conjunction with the mattress 10. This base 16, when used in conjunction with a hospital bed 17 such as the well- 5 known Joerns hospitalbed, is formed in sections which correspond in length to the articulated sections 18, 19 and 20 of the bed 17 and to the intermediate fixed section 21. correspondingly, the foundation 16 has sections 22, 23, 24'and 25, as shown. These sections have the same width as the mattress 10 and the same overall length, the individual foundation sections being formed lengthwise to fit the several sections of the hospital bed.

Each foundation section 22 through 25 includes a l and a compressibility of 20-30 lbs. on the basis described for the mattress components. Thus, it may be seen that the foundation padding is somewhat softer and more readily compressible than the softest sections of the mattress proper. However, when the mattress is placed upon the foundation 16 for use, the composite assembly which represents the total invention gives a different effect than would be achieved if the mattress alone were. uscqwitncu .Lhe..f9t1&12!i.%,9if were son or'body of sufficient adult size to span the mattress.

The figures in the comparison chart demonstrate that the mattress, when utilized properly with the foundation 16, exerts the minimum unit pressures on the various parts of the anatomy and these pressures are signifi-v cantly lower than the corresponding pressures exerted by the conventional and hospital mattresses. The test results also show that the parts of the anatomy requiring the greatest degree of support, namely the back and hips, receive this support with the invention and the 'parts'requiring lesser supporting pressure, namely the head and heels, are properly accommodated.

With reference to FIG. 4, aprior art solid-mattress such as a regular hospital mattress is illustrated and it will be observed how the body of the user depresses the prior art mattress unevenly due to the fact that the mattress is unable to compensate for the different weight regions of the body. FIG. 5, on the other hand, shows the invention with its different density and compressibility zones enabling the mattress and foundation assembly to support the body without extreme deformation, the assembly automatically exerting the necessary unit pressures on the different regions of the body with the necessary differential to allow even support along the full length of the body and minimum mattress compression or deformation.

It is to be understood that the form of the invention herewith shown and described is to be taken as a preferred example of the same, and that various changes in the shape, size and arrangement of parts may be resorted to, without departing from the spirit of the invention or scope of the subjoined claims.
