  • Publication number: 20190298590
    Abstract: Systems for facilitating movement of a patient transport apparatus are provided and include user input control device that includes a mode switch selectable between a longitudinal transport mode and a multidirectional mode and a driving assist device actuatable between at least one engaged state and a non-engaged state. The mode switch generates signals based on the selected mode and the driving assist device generates engaged or non-engaged signals which are received by a controller. The controller is configured to generate an output signal sent to a lift actuator, swivel actuator, and/or a powered drive system to assist a user in propelling the apparatus in a desired manner.

  • Publication number: 20190192337
    Abstract: A thermal transfer device for providing thermal treatment to a patient. A patient support portion supporting and contacting the patient includes a first segment of a fluid flow path to receive a fluid from a fluid source. A flexible covering coupled and movable relative to the patient support portion defines a space therebetween that substantially conforms to the patient. The flexible covering includes a second segment of the fluid flow path. The fluid is circulated through an inlet, an outlet, and fluid flow path for supplying heat to or removing heat from the patient support portion and the flexible covering. A fluid circulation system with a controller may selectively adjust heat transfer from temperature zones defining the patient support portion. The thermal transfer device or a mattress cover may provide for controlling the microclimate, or conditions at or near the interface between the patient and the patient support portion.

  • Patent number: 9528585
    Abstract: A piston system comprises a first arm and a second arm, each mounted respectively on a first shaft and a second shaft, and being mounted for rotational oscillation about a central axis. Both arms terminate radially outward from the central axis, and are coupled to piston arrangements. The piston arrangements include pistons. Each set of pistons is mounted for movement within respective stationary chambers. Each stationary chamber may be defined, at least in part, by a piston coupled to the first arm and a piston coupled to the second arm. The stationary chambers are arranged about the central axis. The first and the second shaft are connected to an energy transfer mechanism. An energy transfer mechanism includes coupled non-circular gears arranged to convert oscillatory rotational motion to unidirectional rotational motion.
