(FR) SYSTEME SUPPORT DE POIGNET
Abstract: front page image
(EN)This invention provides for a wrist support system (10) which is generally positioned adjacent a keyboard (12) of a computer system (14) or typewriter which is directed to alleviating the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. The wrist support system includes a support member (22) which is mounted on a base surface (28) adjacent the keyboard (12). A liquid containing pack (30) is mounted on an upper surface (32) of the support member (22) for resiliently interfacing with a user's palm area (20) and wrist area (18) when the user is operating the keyboard (12). The liquid containing pack (30) is deformable to the contours of the palm area (20) and wrist area (18) and provides a flexible support for the user's interfacing areas.
(FR)L'invention se rapporte à un système support de poignet (10) qui est généralement placé à côté d'un clavier (12) d'un ordinateur (14) ou d'une machine à écrire et qui permet de soulager les symptômes du syndrome du canal carpien. Ce système support de poignet comprend un élément support (22) monté sur une surface de base (28) adjacente au clavier (12). Un tampon renfermant un liquide (30) est fixé sur une surface supérieure (32) de l'élément support (22) pour épouser la paume de la main (20) et le poignet (18) d'un utilisateur lorsque ce dernier utilise le clavier (12). Le tampon renfermant le liquide (30) s'adapte aux contours de la paume (20) de la main et du poignet (18) et forme un support flexible pour les zones en contact avec l'utilisateur.
