Abstract
(EN)
Support arms (18, 20; 18', 20'; 18', 20') are coupled between a chair back (14, 14') and seat (12, 12') and trunnions (26, 26', 26') located at opposite sides of the chair (10, 10', 10'). The trunnions (26, 26', 26') are journaled in a stand (30, 30') such that the chair (10, 10', 10') is rotatable about the trunnion axis. A lap restraint (98) engages the upper thighs of a user to secure the user to the seat (12, 12'). The effective lengths of the support arms (18, 20; 18', 20'; 18', 20') (i.e., the distance between the chair back (14, 14') and seat (12, 12') and the trunnions (26, 26', 26')) are adjustable to adjust the center of gravity of the chair (10, 10', 10') and occupant relative to the trunnion axis.
(FR)
Des bras de support (18, 20; 18', 20'; 18', 20') sont couplés entre un dossier (14, 14') de fauteuil, un siège (12, 12') et des pivots (26, 26', 26') disposés aux côtés opposés du fauteuil (10, 10', 10'). Les pivots (26, 26', 26') sont montés rotatifs dans un pied (30, 30') de façon que le fauteuil (10, 10', 10') puisse tourner autour de leur axe. Un dispositif de retenue ventral (98) bloque la partie supérieure des cuisses de l'utilisateur, de façon à le maintenir fermement sur le siège (12, 12'). Les longueurs efficaces des bras de support (18, 20; 18', 20'; 18', 20') (c'est-à-dire la distance entre le dossier (14, 14'), le siège (12, 12') et les pivots (26, 26', 26')) sont réglables, ce qui permet de régler le centre de gravité du fauteuil (10, 10', 10') et de l'occupant par rapport à l'axe des pivots.
