Title (EN) MIDWHEEL DRIVE WHEELCHAIR WITH INDEPENDENT FRONT AND REAR SUSPENSION
(FR) FAUTEUIL ROULANT A ROUE MOTRICE CENTRALE POURVU D'UNE SUSPENSION AVANT ET ARRIERE INDEPENDANTE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A wheelchair includes a frame, and a front pivot arm pivotally mounted to the frame at a front pivot point, the front pivot arm having a caster for supporting the frame. A rear pivot arm is pivotally mounted to the frame at a rear pivot point, the rear pivot arm having a caster for supporting the frame. A ground engaging mid- wheel drive wheel is connected to the frame. A linkage connects the front and rear pivot arms to each other in a manner such that an upward or downward rotation of one of the pivot arms about its pivot point causes rotation of the other pivot arm about its pivot point in an opposite rotational direction.
(FR)L'invention concerne un fauteuil roulant qui comprend un châssis et un bras pivotant avant monté pivotant sur le châssis en un point pivot avant, le bras pivotant avant comprenant une roulette supportant le châssis. Un bras pivotant arrière est monté pivotant sur le châssis en un point pivot arrière, le bras pivotant arrière comprenant une roulette supportant le châssis. Une roue motrice centrale en contact avec le sol est reliée au châssis. Une liaison relie les bras pivotants avant et arrière de façon qu'une rotation vers le haut ou vers le bas d'un des bras pivotants autour de son point pivot entraîne la rotation de l'autre brase de pivot autour de son point pivot dans une direction de rotation opposée.
