Title
(EN) A REST DEVICE FOR THE HAND AND A SUPPORT DEVICE FOR THE FOREARM
(FR) APPUI-MAIN ET SUPPORT D'AVANT-BRAS
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to a rest device for the hand and a support device for the forearm of a person, who performs repeated rotational, lifting and pressure moments with his/her hand e.g. moments during the use of a computer mouse, other intensive work moments with the hand as well as during the rehabilitation of the hand and the arm subsequent to various types of injuries. The device comprises a resilient moveable rest and support part (1), which receives the forearm and has a plane central part (2) as well as at least two sector parts (3, 4, 5, 6) which extend outwards from the central part at an angle and in pairs are arranged in the same half of the device as well as a part (7, 8, 9, 10) which extends downwards at an angle to the plane central part, the rest and support part (1) being supported by resilient elements, which exert a pressure, preferably compression springs (11, 12, 13, 14) or the like, arranged in a vertical direction below the sector parts (3, 4, 5, 6) adjacent the circumference (P) and consequently on each side of the part (7, 8, 9, 10), which extends downwards the lifting, lowering and rotational movements of the hand and its fingers being facilitated and resiliently damped by means of the rest and support part due to the reaction properties of the springs.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif appui-main et support d'avant-bras destiné à une personne qui exécute des mouvements de rotation, d'élévation et de pression répétés avec la main, p. ex. les mouvements résultant de l'utilisation d'une souris d'ordinateur, ou d'autres mouvements de travail intensifs exécutés avec la main, ou à la rééducation de la main et du bras suite à divers types de lésions. Ce dispositif comprend un élément (1) d'appui et de support souple sur lequel l'avant-bras vient se poser, et qui comprend une partie (2) centrale plane ainsi qu'au moins deux sections (3, 4, 5, 6) s'étendant vers l'extérieur à partir de cette partie centrale en formant un angle vers le haut, ces sections étant disposées par paires sur une même moitié du dispositif, ainsi qu'un partie (7, 8, 9, 10) intermédiaire qui s'étend vers le bas à partir de la partie centrale en formant un angle. Cet élément (1) d'appui et de support est soutenu par des éléments élastiques qui exercent une pression, de préférence des ressorts (11, 12, 13, 14) compressibles ou des moyens similaires, disposés verticalement sous les sections (3, 4, 5, 6) adjacentes au pourtour (P) de chaque côté de la partie (7, 8, 9, 10) orientée vers le bas. Les mouvements d'élévation, d'abaissement et de rotation de la main et des doigts sont facilités et amortis de manière élastique par cet élément d'appui et de support grâce aux caractéristiques de réaction des ressorts.
