A newly granted patent (Publication Number: US11919428B2) discloses a temperature management system designed for an occupant supporting device. The system includes an air distributing device with a body structure in the form of a bag, a main power device connected to the air distributing device, and a temperature adjusting device for regulating the air temperature within the system. The airflow within the system is guided through the air distributing device by two guide elements, ensuring efficient circulation and temperature control. Additionally, the system features ventilation paths for exchanging air with the outside environment, enhancing overall comfort and air quality for the occupant using the supporting device.

Furthermore, the patent details various configurations and components of the temperature management system, such as the placement of air inlets and outlets, the use of thermoelectrical devices for temperature adjustment, and the integration of multiple air distributing devices for enhanced airflow control. The system's design allows for customizable airflow patterns and temperature settings, catering to the specific needs and preferences of the occupant. By incorporating features like air holes for external air exchange and ventilation paths for cooling components, the system aims to provide a comfortable and personalized temperature management solution for occupants using the supporting device.
