Title (EN) ROTATOR CUFF EXERCISE MACHINE
(FR) MACHINE POUR L'EXERCICE DE LA COIFFE DES ROTATEURS
Abstract:
(EN) A machine for exercising the rotator cuff of a user includes an upright support frame (12) having a front, a top, first and second sides defining a plane of the upright support frame, and a support structure (22) extending from the front adjacent the top of the upright support frame. The machine preferably includes a forearm support assembly (60) for supporting a forearm of the user in a plane substantially transverse to the plane of the upright support frame, wherein the transverse plane also passes through the shoulders of the user such that the user's arm is positioned substantially in the transverse plane to isolate the user's rotator cuff. A tension mechanism (80) is mounted on the upright support frame and includes a tensioned cable (83). A cam mechanism (100) is connected to the tensioned cable and supported by the support structure of the upright support frame for rotation with the forearm support assembly under tension as the user's forearm is rotated.
(FR) Une machine pour l'exercice de la coiffe des rotateurs d'un utilisateur comprend un cadre de support vertical (12) ayant une partie frontale, une partie supérieure et des premier et second côtés définissant un plan du cadre de support vertical, et une structure de support (22) s'étendant depuis la partie frontale adjacente à la partie supérieure du cadre de support vertical. La machine comprend de préférence un ensemble de support (60) des avant bras qui permet de supporter un avant bras de l'utilisateur dans un plan sensiblement transversal au plan du cadre de support vertical, le plan transversal passant également par les épaules de l'utilisateur de sorte que le bras de l'utilisateur se positionne sensiblement dans le plan transversal pour isoler la coiffe des rotateurs de l'utilisateur. Un mécanisme de tension (80) est monté sur le cadre de support vertical et comprend un câble tendu (83). Un mécanisme à came (100) est connecté au câble tendu et supporté par la structure de support du cadre de support vertical pour tourner avec l'ensemble de support d'avant bras sous une tension lorsque l'avant bras de l'utilisateur tourne.
