Title
(EN) IMPROVED MASSAGING DEVICE FOR CHAIRS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE MASSAGE POUR SIEGES
Abstract
(EN) A massage device (7) having a track comprising two rails. The rails (34) comprise a first V-shaped raceway (52) spaced apart from a second raceway (54). The device includes a carriage (56) that causes a massaging unit (6) comprising a pair of massaging (116L, 116R) to move back and forth along the rails. Coupled to the carriage are a pair of guide wheels (60) having diamond-shaped cross-section, and engaging the first raceway. A biasing wheel (72) is pivotally coupled to either side of the carriage and spring loaded in a direction away from the guide wheels as to engage the second raceway and maintain the carriage within the rail. The massaging unit comprises a pair of massaging members that are mounted to a rotatable shaft (110) in such a fashion as to perform a finger pressure-like massage or a tapping massage.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de massage (7) pourvu d'une piste à deux rails, lesquels (34) comportent un premier chemin de roulement en V (52) séparé d'un second chemin de roulement (54). Le dispositif comporte notamment un chariot (56) qui imprime, à l'unité de massage (6) comprenant deux éléments de massage (116L, 116R), un mouvement aller-retour sur les rails. Deux roues de guidage (60), couplées au chariot et présentant une section transversale en losange, sont en prise avec le premier chemin de roulement. Une roue de sollicitation (72) épouse pivotante l'un ou l'autre côté du chariot et sous charge de ressort éloignée des roues de guidage de façon à être en prise avec le second chemin de roulement et à maintenir le chariot sur le rail. L'unité de massage comprend deux éléments de massage solidaires d'un arbre rotatif (110) de façon à effectuer un massage de type pression de doigts ou massage par tapotement.
