The patent application (Publication Number: US20240032704A1) describes a system for a patient support surface, including a core and a ticking covering the core. The ticking has a first surface facing away from the core and a second surface facing towards the core. The system utilizes radio frequency (RF) welding equipment and a die to emboss a layer of an embossing substrate applied to the second surface of the ticking, creating a 3-dimensional structure determined by the die. The core can be a mattress with inflatable zones, and the ticking can have different materials on the first and second surfaces, such as polyurethane and nylon.

Furthermore, the patent application also covers a method for applying a 3-dimensional structure to a ticking, involving selecting RF welding equipment and a compatible die, applying an embossing substrate, pressing the die on the substrate, and activating the RF welding equipment. The method results in a 3-dimensional structure determined by the die, with the option to add a layer of color or foil. The system and method described in the patent application aim to enhance the design and functionality of patient support surfaces by creating visually appealing and structurally sound coverings with customizable features like graphic designs and additional layers of color or foil.
