Title (EN) EXERCISE MACHINE PROVIDING FOR NATURAL MOVEMENT
(FR) MACHINE D'EXERCICE PERMETTANT D'EFFECTUER DES MOUVEMENTS NATURELS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention is directed to an exercise machine that simulates the natural body movements such as pulling, pushing, pushing up and pulling down. The exercise machine has a weight stack (18), a closed loop belt (53)/pulley (76) system (12) for actuating the weight stack and a base frame. The exercise machine also has two arm (12) assemblies that are rotatably connected to the base frame at an angle extending away from the base frame providing for a natural converging or diverging motion depending on the orientation of the arm assemblies. A rotatable handle (104) is also attached to the arm assemblies. The weight stack is operably connected to the arm assemblies by the belt (53)/pulley (76) system (12) which is operably connected to a pulley arm which is operably connected to the arm assemblies through a rigid force transfer link that provides for movement in three-dimensions.
(FR)La présente invention concerne une machine d'exercice qui simule les mouvements naturels du corps tels que la traction, la poussée, la poussée vers le haut et la traction vers le bas. La machine d'exercice comprend un empilement (18) de poids, un système (12) de courroie (53)/poulie (76) à boucle fermée qui commande l'empilement de poids et un châssis. La machine d'exercice comprend également deux ensembles bras (12) qui sont couplés rotatifs au châssis au niveau d'un angle s'étendant depuis le châssis pour assurer un mouvement naturel convergent ou divergent selon l'orientation des ensembles bras. Une poignée (104) pouvant tourner est également attachée aux ensembles bras. L'empilement de poids est couplé aux ensembles bras par le système (12) de courroie (53)/poulie (76) qui est lui-même couplé à un bras lequel est couplé aux ensembles bras par une liaison de transfert de force rigide qui assure le mouvement dans trois dimensions.
