Title (EN) FOOTWEAR HAVING SPRING ASSEMBLIES IN THE SOLES THEREOF
(FR) CHAUSSURES CONTENANT DES ENSEMBLES DE RESSORTS DANS LES SEMELLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A shoe (20) having a preassembled spring assembly (30) incorporated into the sole thereof is provided. The spring assembly (30) includes a pair of plates (38) having a plurality of apertures (44) formed therein. The pair of plates (38) define an upper plate and a lower plate in which the apertures (44) formed in the upper and lower plates are axially aligned when the upper plate is disposed directly above the lower plate. A plurality of spring members (40) are disposed between the upper and lower plates. The spring members (40) are axially aligned with the plurality of apertures (44). A mechanism (42) for retaining the spring members between the upper and lower plates is also provided. The mechanism (42) for retaining is designed for retaining the upper and lower plates at a predetermined distance.
(FR)La présente invention concerne une chaussure (20) contenant un ensemble de ressorts (30) préassemblés incorporé dans la semelle. L'ensemble de ressorts (30) comprend une paire de plaques (38) dans lesquelles on a formé une pluralité d'ouvertures (44). La paire de plaques (38) définit une plaque supérieure et une plaque inférieure dans lesquelles les ouvertures (44) pratiquées présentent un alignement axial lorsque la plaque supérieure est disposée directement au-dessus de la plaque inférieure. Une pluralité de ressorts (40) est disposée entre les plaques supérieure et inférieure. Les ressorts (40) sont axialement alignés avec les ouvertures (44). Un mécanisme (42) permet de maintenir les ressorts entre les plaques supérieure et inférieure. La conception du mécanisme (42) permet de maintenir une distance prédéterminée entre les deux plaques.
