COMPOSITE MATERIAL SELECTION FOR A PATIENT TRANSFER ASSIST DEVICE

Abstract

Laminates - layered composites containing at least two elements (matrix and reinforcement) widely used in industry have also found their usage in medicine. Their main feature is the ability to modify the material in order to obtain the required properties. Depending on the needs, we can modify reinforcement, type of resin or the method of bonding substrates. Commonly used fibers are: carbon fiber, glass and aramid fibers; resins are epoxy, vinyl and polyester. The following commercial forms of fibers are distinguished: roving, mat and fabric (multidirectional and unidirectional - UDC) with several styles of bandwidth connections: differing in number of layers and the way they are combined (at various angles or in different ways of sewing/ plaiting) [1, 2].The main goal of this project is to select a proper composite material for a medical device – lightweight, durable and ergonomic patient lift which efficiently transfers patients between two plains. The material selection contains the choice of matrix, reinforcement, form of fibres, style of bandwidth, the thickness and the fibre mass for the individual layers of laminates, as well as the strength calculation.
