With Massaging By Fluid Jet Patents (Class 5/670)
  • Publication number: 20110239371
    Abstract: The present invention is to provide a swinging water massage bed for a user to lie on a bed board. The user can operate a controller to ascend the bed board and swing the bed board through a swing driving unit, or descend the bed board to a resilient layer of a water container. With a water jet device in the water container, water jets out to knock against the resilient layer for the user to be massaged so as to help the user sleep or relax.

  • Patent number: 6210351
    Abstract: A water bed type massaging machine which can stimulate a person being massaged in different positions, which are symmetrical in a breadthwise direction of the person's shoulders with respect to the person's backbone, at a suitable temperature. Water or hot water is filled into a box-shaped water container having an opening at its top, and a flexible sheet is provided over the opening in a watertight manner to constitute a water bed enabling a person being massaged to lie on the top surface of the flexible sheet. Right and left nozzles capable of jetting water or hot water against the back surface of the flexible sheet are provided in the water container so that they can be moved in a heightwise direction of the person being massaged and in the breadthwise direction of the person's shoulders. The nozzles can be transferred, including rotated.

  • Patent number: 6139512
    Abstract: An apparatus and method of improved water therapy in which a person is buoyantly supported in a reclining or prone position on a top membrane of a enclosure which contains heated water, and air. A water pump recirculates the water which is drawn out of the enclosure through outlets and associated piping and which is then reintroduced into the interior of the enclosure through venturi air intake as waterjets that are mixed with air. The air enriched waterjets drive through a layer of water and impinge on the underside of the top membrane to produce massage effects on the person. The air is captured inside the enclosure in a chamber or pocket which rises above the water level within the sealed enclosure and is drawn out of the interior enclosure to the air inlet waterjet venturi for recirculation of air throughout and within the sealed enclosure.

  • Patent number: 5842241
    Abstract: A water jet massaging mattress is provided including a mattress having an interior formed of a soft material and having a solid rectangular configuration. Such interior is defined by a planar top face, a planar bottom face, and a periphery formed therebetween. A water impermeable flexible layer encompasses the interior. A plurality of horn-shaped apertures are formed in the interior of the mattress each with an open top of a first diameter and coincident with the top face of the interior of the mattress. An open bottom of each horn-shaped apertures has a second diameter less than the first diameter and remains coincident with the bottom face of the interior. A jet assembly includes a plurality of jets each situated adjacent the open bottom of an associated one of the horn-shaped apertures. A water pump is situated below the mattress and is connected to a bottom of each of the jets via a plurality of conduits for circulating water through the horn-shaped apertures and against the water impermeable layer.
