Title
(EN) AQUATIC PROPULSION DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE PROPULSION AQUATIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
An aquatic propulsion device (32) includes an elongate member(40) secured to a forearm support (42) and a paddle (34). The paddle(34) and elongate member (40) include a grip (36) positioned such that a person may place their forearm in the forearm support (42) and reach and hold onto the grip (36). While wearing the aquatic propulsion device, the person may perform power and/or return strokes using their forearm and hand, such that the forearm support, the elongate member, and the paddle move in tandem with the forearm and hand. The aquatic propulsion (32) device is characterized by a center of water (64) displacement that extends beyond the hand, away from the forearm. Additionally, a leading edge of the paddle is substantially inline with the hand and forearm.

L'invention concerne un dispositif de propulsion aquatique comprenant un élément allongé relié à un support d'avant-bras ainsi qu'une plaquette. Cette plaquette et cet élément allongé comportent une poignée disposée de façon qu'une personne puisse placer son avant-bras dans le support d'avant-bras et saisir ladite poignée. Ce dispositif de propulsion aquatique permet à l'utilisateur de réaliser des mouvements de propulsion et/ou de retour à l'aide de son avant-bras et de sa main, le support d'avant-bras, l'élément allongé et la plaquette se déplaçant en tandem avec l'avant-bras et la main. Le dispositif de l'invention se caractérise par un centre de déplacement d'eau se prolongeant au-delà de la main dans le sens opposé à l'avant-bras. Par ailleurs, le bord d'attaque de la planche est sensiblement aligné avec la main et l'avant-bras.
