  • Publication number: 20200085658
    Abstract: A patient lift system includes a motor and a drum. The drum is operably coupled to the motor. The drum can be selectively driven to rotate by the motor. A housing surrounds at least the motor and the drum. A load-bearing member is provided that includes a first end and a second end. The first end of the load-bearing member can be operably coupled to at least one of the housing and the drum. The second end of the load-bearing member can be operably coupled to a patient support assembly. An electrically conductive member can be positioned within the load-bearing member. A user interface is configured to actuate the patient support assembly in vertical and horizontal directions.

  • Publication number: 20160198776
    Abstract: The present inventive concept relates to electrically-powered, thermally-regulated apparel or heated garments and a controller and related methods of operation thereof. The thermally-regulated apparel item can include one or more heating elements that can be mounted at spaced locations about the body of the apparel item, such as being received in pockets, or by being attached to the body by releasable fasteners. The heating elements also can be connected together is series to form a combined or composite heating element assembly for the apparel item having a user selected or defined configuration and coverage along the body of the apparel item.

  • Publication number: 20160095369
    Abstract: A heated glove comprising a glove body that includes a pair of body sections formed from a substrate material, with each body section having a substantially mirror image shape as the other body section. The glove body further includes elongate heating elements formed from a conductive material and attached to the outer surface of each body section with a couching stitch and in accordance with a predetermined layout pattern that is a substantially mirror image of the layout pattern of the other heating element. The pair of matching body sections are then attached together to form the glove body with the heating elements being substantially aligned in registration with each other.

  • Publication number: 20150230524
    Abstract: The present inventive concept relates to electrically-powered, thermal-regulated apparel or heated garments and a controller and related methods of operation thereof. The thermal-regulated apparel item includes a heating assembly having a heating element and a controller that is linked to the heating element. The controller receives measured temperature or other feedback such as electrical resistance values from a thermistor or a voltage level of a thermocouple positioned along the heating element and in response, varies an electrical power output to the heating element to maintain a desired thermal output. The controller also communicates with a user settable control device, which can include a wireless control device, such as a Smart phone, through which the user can monitor and control the thermal output of one or more heated garments linked thereto.

  • Publication number: 20150083705
    Abstract: A heated garment is disclosed for use by a wearer to impart heat to the wearer in cold conditions. The heated garment includes a wearable garment having an interior portion that resides adjacent a wearer's body. At least one heating pad is disposed in the wearable garment and the heating pad is configured, when heated, to radiate heat from the interior portion of the garment to a wearer. The heating pad comprises at least one heating element fixed to or otherwise incorporated into a flexible carrier. The heating element is configured on the carrier such that, when heated, the heating element produces on the carrier a field of warmth characterized by a plurality of areas of increased thermal energy relative to other areas on the carrier. A power supply is configured to supply operating voltage to the heating element when heat is desired and a controller is used to control the power supply.
