The display system includes a camera positioned to image the underside of the mattress and a monitor (display screen) positioned for viewing by a person lying on the mattress so that they can see the deflection in the bottom of the plungers caused by their own weight on the mattress. Seeing the image of the downwardly displaced plungers immediately conveys the operation of the plunger matrix mattress to the viewer. The system may also be configured to capture individual frames and video images, store the images, transmit the images, and edit as desired, for example by zooming, cropping, changing the speed of the video, and so forth.

  • Patent number: 9041867
    Abstract: A display casing has a first cover, a second cover, and a fixing member between the first cover and the second cover to serve as a combination medium therebetween. The fixing member is engaged with two buckling pieces of the first cover by a positioning pin and a restraining portion, and the second cover is then buckled on the fixing member by a buckling member to be combined with the first cover. The material of the fixing member is the same as that of the second cover but is different from, the material of the first cover. Therefore, when the buckling member of the second cover is buckled on the fixing member, the risk of the fracture of the fixing member under the stress of the buckling member can be avoided.
