Title (EN) ARCHED PANEL WRIST SUPPORT
(FR) APPUI-POIGNET A PANNEAU COURBE
Abstract:
(EN) Wrist-supports are shown in figures (1, 4, 11 and 12) comprising an arched panel (25) standing on a pair of footing edges (26) extending in a side to side direction. Panel (24) comprises firm material that is thin enough to flex as shown in figure (2). Means are required to constrain panel (25) in its arched configuration. Flexible sleeve (20) wrapping around arched panel (25) is the constraining means of figures (1, 4 and 12). A channel (32) is the means shown in figure (8). A tray (44) and a keyboard housing means (50) contribute the means in figure (11). A separate support is recommended for each wrist. The designs provide surprising benefits of comfort, reach and wrist-straightening. Many variations are considered. A mobile version with hand strap (36) is shown in figure (12). A sloping version is shown in figure (7) comprising trapezoidal structure panel (25), shown in figure (6).
(FR) Des appuis-poignets illustrés par les figures (1,4,11 et 12) comprennent un panneau courbé (25) reposant sur deux bords d'appui transversaux (26). Un panneau (24) présente un matériau ferme suffisamment mince pour s'infléchir comme illustré par la figure (2). Des moyens, nécessaires pour maintenir la courbure de panneau (25), sont constitués d'un manchon souple (20) enveloppant ce panneau courbé (25) qu'illustrent les figures (1, 4, et 12), d'une rainure (32) illustrée par la figure (8), d'un plateau (44) et d'un logement de clavier (50) illustrés par la figure (11). Un support distinct est recommandé pour chaque poignet. De telles conceptions donnent des avantages surprenants de confort, d'accessibilité et de redressement des poignets. Nombre de variantes sont envisageables. Une version mobile dotée d'une sangle (36) pour poignet est illustrée par la figure (12), et une version inclinée par la figure (7) où l'on trouve un panneau (25) à structure trapézoïdale, illustré par la figure (6).
