If your hospital bed controls become locked up, there are a few things you can do to try and fix the issue. First, you will want to check the batteries to make sure they are still working. If the batteries are dead, you will need to replace them. If the batteries are not the issue, you may need to reset the controls. To do this, you will need to unplug the bed from the wall and then plug it back in. Once the bed is plugged back in, you should hold down the reset button for a few seconds. If this does not work, you may need to contact the manufacturer of the bed for further assistance.
The locking mechanism for a hospital bed is mounted on an undercarriage. Mobile, wheeled hospital beds must have some form of braking mechanism to prevent them from rolling while being unattended. The application for this patent is based on the U.S. Patent Application Ser. patent. On October 13, 2003, the patent was filed again, no. The mechanism for locking a hospital bed is the subject of this invention. The locking pedal is located in the center, and the unlocking pedal and vertically extending braking mechanism are located at the other end.
The pedal is unlocked and the brake is locked into a position in contact with the floor as a result of the brake being locked into a position. If a biasing mechanism, such as a spring, is used, the brake can be pushed upward when it is released. An embodiment of the locking mechanism for a hospital bed is found on an undercarriage. While raising and lowering a hospital bed 102, carriage 100 rests on the floor and does not move vertically. It can be mounted on a crossbar of the undercarriage 100 and locked into place when the bed 102 is lowered or raised. Rubber, in particular, is required to provide a high friction coefficient when compared to the floor. The brake pad 30 will most likely absorb the weight of the hospital bed 102, increasing frictional forces between the pads and the floor.
Because of this, when the locking mechanism 10 is engaged, it becomes more difficult to move the bed 102. Rod 42’s pivot is placed on transit link 68 by transit pin 46. In horizontal brake frame 64, there are 10 support members, 106 of which are fixedly mounted. To ensure adequate floor clearance for the locking mechanism 10 components (located near the bed’s edge), at least 20 mm of space must be left between the component parts. Three brake members 31 are located near the opposite sides of undercarriage 100 and are linked together by a crosslinking pin 46, which is located on opposite ends of a crosslinking member. It is possible to connect the brake member 31 to the connecting pin 60 by using a connecting pin 60 operably. It reciprocates by moving into brake sleeve 32, which is centered by an upper brake glide 67 and a lower brake glide 69.
A locking axis 52, which is located on the connecting link 61, is an axis of rotation between the connecting link and the locking link. In a preferred embodiment, a compression spring is inserted into the gap between the brake member 31 and the brake sleeve 32. This mechanism is used to connect pedals 12,14 and 18, as well as to connect pedals 18 and 1214. The coupling pin 11 on the locking pedal 12 is located below pin 13, so that transit rod 42 pushes the locking mechanism 10 to unlock. A biasing device 16, such as a torsion spring, applies an upward bias to unlocking pedal 14 in a preferred embodiment. It would be ideal if the biasing mechanism was located within the brake sleeve 32, as shown in the image below. An electric device, such as a linear actuator, can be used to move the locking axis 52 across the plane A with the door unlocked.
To ensure that the brake pads and floor are at least 20 mm apart, the door should be unlocked with the door open. Although the present invention addresses specific embodiments, there will undoubtedly be many variations and modifications, as well as other applications, that will emerge. A locking mechanism for a hospital bed is typically a locking pedal mounted on the back of a support member of the bed’s undercarriage. The brake frame is also mounted on a support member, and a brake sleeve with a brake pad disposed at each end for contact with the floor is included in addition to the brake frame. According to the claim, the brake pad in question has a high coefficient of friction in comparison to the floor. The transit rod is moved through this mechanism thanks to a coupling mechanism on the unlocking pedal and a locking mechanism on the locking pedal. When the locking mechanism is locked, the unlocking pedal is depressed, and when the coupling mechanism moves the transit rod in the opposite direction, the locking mechanism is locked.
How To Unlock Hospital Bed Control
There are many different types of hospital beds, each with their own control mechanisms. However, most hospital beds have a similar process for unlocking the controls. To unlock hospital bed controls, first locate the control panel. This is usually located at the head of the bed. Once you have located the control panel, look for a button or lever that says “unlock.” Press or pull this button or lever to unlock the controls. If the controls are still locked, you may need to consult the hospital bed’s manual for further instructions.
Hospital Bed Locked
If a hospital bed is locked, it means that the bed is currently being used by a patient and is not available for use by anyone else. Hospital beds are typically locked when a patient is admitted to the hospital and is placed in a specific room. The patient’s name and room number are typically displayed on a sign on the door of the room, and the bed may also be labeled with the patient’s name.
The locking mechanism on a hospital bed is mounted on the bed’s undercarriage. As a result of the locking pedal being depressed to prevent the bed from rolling, a mechanical linkage connects the brake member to the floor beneath the bed, causing the brake pad to move vertically downward into contact with the floor beneath the bed and locking the brake pad. You pull the mechanical linkage in the opposite direction to raise the brake pedal and the brake pad from the floor by depressing the unlocking pedal. Caster lock access can be difficult for hospital personnel to obtain. The casters or wheels on the patient may be locked or unlocked, delaying the patient’s movement, which can be extremely dangerous in a critical situation. One of the advantages of the current invention is that it may have a floor-contacting surface with a high coefficient of friction. Views include a side-by-side comparison of the undercarriage and the locking mechanism, which operates in an unlocked position.
View from below is also available when the brake is locked. The locking mechanism 10 mount is mounted to a hospital bed’s crossbar and can be used to secure bed 102 when it is raised and lowered. The locking pedal 12 clearly indicates whether it is locked or unlocked, as stated in 2B, 5A, and 5B. When the braking mechanism 10 is locked, the brake pad 30 may extend below caster 108 on undercarriage 100. As a result, brake pad 30 will be slightly heavier than bed 102. Rod 42 passes through a hole in the support member 106, allowing the bed 102 to be lowered to its lowest position without interference from the locking mechanism 10. When using transit link 68, it is recommended that the back-and-forth motion be parallel to the floor, so that component parts near the bed’s edge have at least 20 mm of clearance. The brake member 31 on the 100 is not located (by center of gravity) on the underside of the vehicle; rather, it is located at one or the other end of the vehicle.
A pair of slots 62 are distinguished by a pair of openings on the opposite sides of the brake sleeve 32, in a preferred embodiment. When transit link 68 is moved to the right in a row, connecting link 61 pivots in its direction, just as pin 60 is being tapped. The locking axis 52 runs beyond the plane A, which divides pin 60 from pin 52. In a preferred embodiment, a compression spring is inserted into the brake sleeve 32 and the brake member 31 between them. In pedal coupling mechanism 18, 12,14 are linked to one another by a pedal coupling mechanism. In this case, pin 11 on the locking pedal 12 is below pin 13, allowing transit rod 42 to move out of lock mechanism 10 and into lock mechanism 11. An appropriate embodiment of a biasing device 16, such as a torsion spring, is that it applies an upward bias to unlock pedal 14.
The brake sleeve 32, as shown in the image above, should have a biasing mechanism. When the locking axis is attached to the brake pad, an electric device, such as a linear actuator, may be used to control its movement across plane A. For unlocked positions, the floor must be at least 20 mm from the brake pad. While the present invention has been described in terms of embodiments thereof, there are many other variations and modifications, as well as other uses, that skilled craftsmen and engineers will recognize. An electronic locking mechanism for securing a hospital bed to the support member of the bed’s undercarriage. There is a pedal mounted to the support member, a brake frame mounted to the second brake frame, a brake reciprocator mounted to the first brake frame, and a locking link pivoted to the connecting link. A hospital bed’s locking mechanism includes a locking pedal mounted on a support member of the bed’s undercarriage, a brake frame, a brake reciprocator mounted on the brake frame, and a brake sleeve mounted on the first brake frame. When the locking mechanism is locked, the unlocking pedal is depressed, and when the coupling mechanism moves the transit rod in the opposite direction, the locking mechanism is locked.
The transit rod is a device that moves from one direction to the other in response to the unlocking pedal being depressed in the opposite direction. A connecting pin, said to be pivotably connected to said at least one connecting link, must be located at least one way behind the brake member to bias away from its down position, a second brake frame extending above the brake sleeve fixedly attached thereto, and a locking link pivotally A hospital bed’s undercarriage is intended to keep a hospital bed from sliding on the floor. The locking pedal and unlocking pedal are both linked vertically to a vertical extending braking mechanism, including a brake pad. When the unlocking pedal is shifted from the opening position to the unlocked one, the brake is released and the vehicle moves vertically upward. A mechanical linkage is also included in the locking mechanism, in addition to the brake mechanism. When the locking pedal is depressed and the unlocking pedal is activated, the coupling pin connects the transit rod in one direction to the pin on the coupling pin. A link with at least one end pivotably connected to the other end and a second end that is pivotably connected to the other end.
