Abstract (en)

The airbed pump (1), e.g. a fan, provides air which is supplied to a number of different air chambers (4,5,6) of at least one single mattress, via pump outlet valves (2), connected to the air chambers via connection lines, which may be branched to allow some air chambers to be supplied simultaneously.

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft eine Luftbett-Pumpe bzw. ein Gebläse (1) sowie eine Luftkammer-Aufteilung für mehrere getrennte Kammern eines Luftbettes. Die Pumpe bzw. das Gebläse (1) speist über eine Anzahl Ventile verschiedene Schläuche, welche zu einer oder über Weichen (3) gleichzeitig zu mehreren Luftkammern (4,5,6) führen. Ein Ablassventil, vorzugsweise in der Pumpe bzw. dem Gebläse, ermöglicht das separate Entleeren der Luftkammern. Die Aufteilung von aneinandergereihten verschiedenen Luftkammern, vorzugsweise 3 gleichgrosse Kammern pro Person ermöglicht das Füllen mit unterschiedlichem Druck. Die Luftkammern werden mit oder ohne Befestigung untereinander von einem Matratzenbezug, mit oder ohne Verwendung eines zwischen Bezug und Kammern liegenden und die Kammern umfassenden Schaumrahmens, zusammengehalten.
