Opening in an inflatable member for a pneumatic compression device
US D618358 S1
A circumferential compression sleeve has bladder openings extending through a bladder, making the sleeve generally breathable and comfortable for the wearer. The openings include at least about 4% of a total surface area of the bladder. The device also has a static evaporation rate through the device of at least about 20 mg/minute. In one example, the device includes a wicking layer for contacting the wearer's skin. The wicking layer wicks moisture from the wearer's skin and generally moves the moisture to portions of the layer in registration with the openings where the moisture is allowed to evaporate therethrough.
The ornamental design for an opening in an inflatable member for a pneumatic compression device, as shown and described.
FIG. 1 is a perspective view of an opening in an inflatable member for a pneumatic compression device showing our new design;
FIG. 2 is an enlarged perspective view of the opening and the weld line; and,
FIG. 3 is an enlarged front elevational view thereof, the rear elevational view being identical thereto.
The phantom lines in the drawings indicate environmental structure which forms no part of the claimed design.
