Title (EN) EXERCISE DEVICE FOR PERSONS CONFINED TO WHEELCHAIR
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'EXERCICE POUR PERSONNES EN CHAISE ROULANTE
Abstract:
(EN) An exercise device, of the rowing machine type, that is useable by individuals confined to a wheel chair and which does not require the individual to leave the wheel chair at any time before, during or after the exercise period. A U-shaped base member (18) borders the area occupied by the wheel chair during the exercise; inwardly directed, thin flange members (24, 26) are formed on the base member and underlie the wheels of the wheel chair during the exercise period to prevent the base member from moving. The resistance offered by the rowing machine-type handles (66, 68) is variable by adjusting the angle relative to the horizontal of plunger members (44) connected between the base member and the handles.
(FR) Dispositif d'exercice, du type machine à avirons, pouvant être utilisée par des individus en chaise roulante, et permettant à l'individu de ne pas quitter la chaise roulante avant, pendant ou après la période d'exercice. Un élément de base (18) en U borde, la surface occupée par la chaise roulante pendant l'exercice; des éléments de rebord (24, 26) minces, orientés intérieurement, sont formés sur l'élément de base, et se situent sous les roues de la chaise roulante pendant la période d'exercice, afin d'empêcher ledit élément de base de bouger. La résistance offerte par les manches (66, 68) du type machine à avirons, est variable par réglage de l'angle par rapport à l'horizontal d'éléments plongeurs (44) raccordés entre l'élément de base et les manches.
