Title: (EN) Vehicle seat adjustment mechanism
Abstract:
(EN) A combined height and tilt adjustment mechanism for a vehicle seat enables separate adjustment of the height of a forward and aft part of the seat, thereby enabling independent height and tilt adjustment of the seat. The mechanism comprises: a forward crank (40) for coupling to a seat base and adapted to displace the forward part of the seat base in a vertical direction by rotation of the forward crank about a first axis, said forward crank being coupled to a first linear positioning device (70) for releasably locking the position of said forward crank; and an aft crank (50) for coupling to the seat base and adapted to displace the aft part of the seat base in a vertical direction by rotation of the aft crank about a second axis, said aft crank being coupled to a second linear positioning device (80).
