Each bed leaving sensing unit includes a substrate for correspondingly locking to a top of the support pads, and a plurality of sensors spaced on the substrate and electrically connected to the monitoring device. The bed leaving sensing unit provides pressure data to the monitoring device, and the monitoring device emits an alarm when the pressure data indicates the patient is not lying on the bed, so as to prevent the patient from leaving bed alone or carelessly falling off the hospital bed.||03-13-2014|
|20130291310||SENSING DEVICE FOR AIR CUSHION BED - A sensing device is configured for placing in an air cushion bed below air bladders thereof to detect an exact state of the bed in use, and includes a first and a second sheet connected together to define an air chamber therebetween. The air bladders and the air chamber are communicable with one another via inflation valves on the first sheet and are synchronously and identically inflated. First and second sensing elements are disposed outside and inside the air chamber, respectively. The first sensing element has deformation and acceleration sensors arranged thereon for monitoring how the bed reacts to a patient lying thereon and the manner in which the bed is being used. The second sensing element includes upper and lower conductive sensing sheets and an electrical connection state therebetween is used to detect whether the air bladders are sufficiently inflated. Thus, the air cushion bed is safer for use.||11-07-2013|
|20130167301||AIR CUSHION BED WITH SENSING MAT CAPABLE OF DETECTING THE LYING OF A PATIENT THEREON - An air cushion bed includes an inflatable air mattress; a first sensing mat provided on an outer surface of the air mattress and including a first upper and a first lower sensing sheet with a first soft pad sandwiched between them; and a first determining module electrically connected to the first upper and lower sensing sheets. When the first sensing mat is compressed and the first upper and lower sensing sheets are electrically connected to each other via holes on the first soft pad, the first determining module determines there is a patient lying on the air mattress or the air mattress with a patient lying thereon is insufficiently inflated. A second sensing mat and a second determining module can be additionally provided on another outer surface of the air mattress opposite to the first sensing mat for the air cushion bed to determine both of the above two situations.||07-04-2013|
|20130160237||POWER-OPERATED CASTER BRAKE MECHANISM - A power-operated caster brake mechanism includes a driving device having a driving motor; a linking mechanism having a shifting member connected to a moving bar of the driving motor, and two rotating members connected to two ends of the shifting member; a caster connected to each rotating member and including a wheel and a brake and direction-lock mechanism, the latter including a brake block located in a wheel support, and a pin connected at an end to the brake block and another end to the rotating member; and a mechanical switch connected to the moving bar. When the driving motor shifts the shifting member, the rotating members rotate the brake blocks to different positions, bringing the casters to a braked, a direction-locked, or a freely swiveling state. In case the driving motor is failed, the casters can still be set to a desired operating state with the mechanical switch.||06-27-2013|
|20130147185||CLUSTER-TYPE FLUID-CONDUCTING PIPE CONNECTING DEVICE - A cluster-type fluid-conducting pipe connecting device includes a base section; a retaining ring fitted to a front of the base section and turnable from a closed position to an open position; the retaining ring and the base section being correspondingly provided at a front end with fixing slots and connection slots, respectively, and a sideward locating slot being formed at a rear end of each fixing slot; a reset structure enabling the retaining ring to automatically return from the open position to the closed position; and a connector having a forward pipe engaging section for fluid-conducting pipes to connect thereto, and a rearward plug section for inserting into the base section and externally provided with stubs that slide into the connection and fixing slots while the retaining ring is in the open position and are locked in the locating slots while the retaining ring is in the closed position.||06-13-2013|
|20130146371||REAL-TIME WEIGHING DEVICE FOR USE WITH HOSPITAL BED - A real-time weighing device for use with hospital bed includes a bed frame; a support plate spread on a top of the bed frame and made of a light but rigid enough material; a plurality of load cells uniformly distributed between the bed frame and the support plate for measuring a weight value of a patient lying on the support plate; and a processing element electrically connected to the load cells for collecting, sorting and calculating values of weight measured by the load cells to derive data about the patient's body weight and the patient's current center of gravity on the support plate, so that the derived data may provide nursing personnel with more complete data about the patient's current state.||06-13-2013|
