Abstract (en)

The inner core (6) of the mattress is made of an airtight synthetic material, which is inflated. It is covered with a fleece (23,24) and an outer layer of thin plastic foil (13), leaving a surrounding gap (7). When the foam material (5') is applied to envelop the inflated element, it sticks to the area not covered with the foil (13) before, while all other areas slide freely inside the foam cover (15). The mattress offers a perfect combination of elasticity and support. No elastic bed base is needed.

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft ein Liegemöbel (1) mit einem zentral angeordneten Luftkissen (6), das durch einen elastischen Formkörper (5) kompakt umschlossen ist. Beide Teile wirken als Feder, wobei das Luftkissen die innere Feder (f1,f4) und der elastische Formkörper die äussere Feder (f2, f5) bildet. Die kompakte Umschliessung des Luftkissens durch den elastischen Formkörper bewirkt ein einheitliches, sich in der Dynamik ablösendes Federsystem (f3, f6), welches das Liegeprofil auch eines sich bewegenden Benutzers aufrechterhält. Der Druck des mehrkammrigen Luftkissens (6) ist veränderbar, indem über eine Steuervorrichtung Luft zugeführt oder abgelassen werden kann. <IMAGE>
