Abstract (en)

Transversally positioned, slightly elastic straps (2) are fixed with one of their ends to one of the long sides (1) of a rectangular frame. The opposite ends are guided around a bar (5), positioned along the inside of the frame (1) and joined to short sticks (3), which can be pushed towards the center of the frame (1) by the tip of a screw (4), which is rotated in order to put a certain tension on the strap (2). Each of the straps (2) can be individually adjusted either according to the feedback of the person occupying the bed, or by the use of sensors (8).
