Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0920824A2] An elastic structure (10) for bed rests made of slats (20), elastic slates or ribs placed across a bed frame and connected to it by slat holding joints (30, 31). In order to enhance the bed rest's adaptability to the loads of a stretched-cut body, the bed frame's longitudinal girders (40) are equipped with structures made of an elastic material (10) composed of two curved elements (50, 60) opposed to each other; an upper element (50) is shaped so as to allow substantial flexing with respect to the frame girder (40), while a lower element (60) functions as a stabilizer and rigidity adjuster. <IMAGE>
