Abstract: front page image
(EN)In order to understand the invention, it is necessary to BEGIN by understanding IN DEPTH the following DISCOVERY which relates to the calf during pedaling; the entire world is misled by two OPTICAL ILLUSIONS (figs. 21 and 22 symbolize a lower member pressing down upon a pedal, 6 is the thigh, 11 the leg, A+B the foot and 1 is the ankle). The first ILLUSION (fig 21) is to believe that the calf (M) INCREASES the pressure on the pedal. The second ILLUSION (fig 22) is to FAIL to see that the force M is CANCELLED OUT by the force M'. The total amount of pressure on the pedal is derived from the THIGH EXCLUSIVELY, whereby the contraction of the CALF is a loss of energy. The aim of the invention is to REPLACE the pedal by a mechanism which AVOIDS THE USE OF THE CALF, thereby enabling performance to be MULTIPLIED BY TWO WITHOUT incurring A LOSS OF POWER!
(FR)Pour comprendre cette invention, il faut COMMENCER par comprendre EN PROFONDEUR la DECOUVERTE suivante qui concerne LE MOLLET quand on appuie sur une pédale, deux ILLUSIONS D'OPTIQUE trompant LE MONDE ENTIER (Les fig 21 et 22 symbolisent un membre inférieur appuyant sur une pédale, 6 étant la cuisse, 11 la jambe, A+B le pied et 1 la cheville). La 1ère ILLUSION (fig 21) est de croire que le mollet (M) AUGMENTE la pression sur la pédale. La deuxième ILLUSION (fig 22) est de NE PAS voir la force M' qui ANNULE la force M. La TOTALITE de LA PRESSION sur la pédale provient DE LA CUISSE SEULEMENT, la contraction du MOLLET étant une PERTE D'ENERGIE. L'invention consiste à REMPLACER la pédale par un mécanisme permettant d'EVITER L'USAGE DU MOLLET ce qui MULTIPLE PAR DEUX le rendement SANS PERTE DE PUISSANCE !
