Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR EXERCISE OF THE HUMAN BODY
(FR) EXERCISEUR POUR LES MUSCLES DU CORPS
Abstract
(EN)
Apparatus is disclosed for use in the exercise of the human body, which comprises a fiberglass pultruded shape (12) of a predetermined oblong geometry with an elastic sheath (19) formed about the exterior thereof over the length of the fiberglass pultruded shape. The fiberglass pultruded shape has fiberglass filaments (17) dimensionally stabilized in a hardened resin system (18). Material properties of the filaments in the resin system are selected such that the ultimate elongation design value of the filaments and the resin system is greater than the actual maximum elongation of the filaments and the resin system when the fiberglass member is flexed in the exercise process. Also, the resin is selected for toughness sufficient to provide a useful flexural fatigue life.

L'exerciseur décrit, qui sert aux exercices des muscles du corps, comprend un profilé en fibre de verre extrudé par étirage (12) qui présente un forme prédéterminée oblongue et autour de la périphérie extérieure duquel est placée sur toute sa longueur une gaine élastique (19). Le profilé en fibre de verre extrudé par étirage contient des filaments en fibre de verre (17) indéformables grâce à leur stabilisation dans un système de résine durcie (18). Les propriétés physiques des filaments contenus dans le système de résine sont sélectionnées de sorte que la résistance caractéristique à l'allongement à la rupture des filaments et du système de résine soient supérieures à l'allongement maximum effectif des filaments et du système de résine, lorsque l'élément en fibre de verre subit des flexions pendant un exercice. En outre, la résine est sélectionnée de sorte que sa rigidité soit suffisante pour assurer une résistance aux contraintes de fatigue en flexions répétées.
