Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2774573A1] The patient (H) lies on a first inflatable chamber (14) which is itself supported on a base (40). A second flexible chamber (51,52) containing distilled water or silicone oil is located immediately under the first and has a pressure (P2) affected by the pressure (P1) in the first chamber. A comparator (30) compares the two pressures and if they differ by more than a preset value the first chamber is pumped (21) or deflated (22).
