FOLDABLE CHANGING PAD
(SMS – STRETCHABLE MULTILAYER STRUCTURE application example)
European Patent EP2810586A1 – Inventor Patrick Herbault
Introducing, an Applied Kinematics innovation, the world first* width foldable changing pad!
The changing pad, which normally has a width of 43 cm, can be folded down to a width of 6 cm, which represents a reduction of 85 % in width.
The foldable structure is under the SMS patent and is obtained by combining multiple parallel layers:
- A foldable frame structure
- A set of superimposed vertical blades, the largest of which are the base of the structure, superimposed with medium-sized blades and finally the thinnest blades
- As an option the « 3D spacer fabric » for an optimized comfort
3D printing was used to create the prototype. It can support the weight of a baby up to 20kg.
A terry cloth and water repellent fabric has been added as a cover to put the baby on.
