Title
(EN) A ROCKING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE BALANCEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
A rocking device with a seat unit such as a chair, crib or cot, or attachment means for same with a motion generator comprising a profiled track defining a closed undulating path and a track follower, to interact with the track whilst one or other is rotated, thereby creating relative displacement between the seat unit and a base unit to simulate the motion of a vehicle. The device has means to decouple the relative displacement between the seat and base from any rotational movement of the chair. The device is particularly effective at inducing sleep and restfulness in children. The invention also includes profiled tracks, and methods for producing them from recording motion experienced by passengers in moving vehicles.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif de balancement doté d'une unité de siège telle qu'une chaise, un lit d'enfant ou de bébé, ou des moyens de fixation pour cele-ci avec un générateur de mouvement qui comprend une piste profilée qui définit un passage ondulé fermé et un suiveur de piste, pour entrer en interaction avec la piste alors que l'un ou l'autre est tourné, créant ainsi un déplacement relatif entre l'unité de siège et une unité de base pour simuler le mouvement d'un véhicule. Le dispositif comporte des moyens pour découpler le déplacement relatif entre le siège et la base à partir d'un mouvement de rotation quelconque de la chaise. Le dispositif est particulièrement efficace pour endormir et reposer les enfants. L'invention comprend également des pistes profilées et des procédés pour les produire à partir de l'enregistrement de mouvement expérimenté par des passagers dans des véhicules en mouvement.
