Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2762205A1] The invention concerns a device sensing an infant's respiratory movements which is placed in a child's bed and triggers a local and/or remote alarm signal on sensing that the infant has stopped breathing. The mattress (1) is divided in at least two parts (2, 3), with each of which are associated one or two piezoelectric sensors (4, 5; 6, 7), or any other type of force sensors. All the sensors are functionally connected to an electronic box (8), which comprises circuits combining the signals (S1, S2, S3, S4) coming from the different sensors (4 to 7). The functioning condition of the sensors (4 to 7) is thus detected and indicated by signalling means (10 to 13), thereby reducing any possibility of mistriggering.
