Abstract

A hospital bed (10) has a frame (14, 18) carrying a patient support section (19) and a footboard (37), and two siderails (38, 43) are supported on the frame for movement between raised and lowered positions. The siderails and footboard each have an operator interface (76-80, 88-89) which includes push-button switches and LEDs, and a serial communication link (56-57, 63-64) couples each operator interface to a control circuit (51) mounted on the frame. Each operator interface includes multiple circuit boards (76-80, 88-89) which represent respective function groups and which each can be either present or omitted in dependence on whether its function group is needed. One such board (76) can control an auxiliary device separate from the bed, such as an inflatable mattress (29) with an electrically-controlled pressure. The control circuit (51) is coupled to a headwall interface circuit (62), which in turn is coupled through a socket/header arrangement (233) to a headwall cable connector on the bed. By changing the headers (291-292) in the sockets (286-287), the interconnections between the connector and the interface circuit can be customized for particular applications. The interface circuit (62) includes a digital volume control circuit (261-264, 271-279) for controlling the amplitude of an audio signal supplied to loudspeakers (68-69) provided in the siderails.
