A Belgian inventor developed a method for slide and slide out a duvet. The invention is a device allowing to spare time and energy and it can help older or disabled people to be autonomous. The inventor is interested in license agreements, further joint development, funding.
Method to put in and put out of the duvet's sheet continental quilts, using a system composed of a wagon, on dirigible wheels, equipped with two vertical arms stretchy in width. They are overcome by two pliers allowing to support two corners of a continental quilt before replacing the duvet's sheet. In addition a lifting portico with several pliers with manual opening allows to grab, outwardly, the group composed of the edge of the continental quilt between both supported corners covered by the upper edge of a continental quilt covered of clean duvet's sheet. The portico raises this group so as to make easier at the same time the sliding out and the complete covering of the continental quilt.
