Title
(EN) IMPACT-ATTENUATION MEMBERS WITH LATERAL AND SHEAR FORCE STABILITY AND PRODUCTS CONTAINING SUCH MEMBERS
(FR) ÉLÉMENTS D'ATTÉNUATION D'IMPACT PRÉSENTANT UNE STABILITÉ DES FORCES LATÉRALES ET DE CISAILLEMENT ET PRODUITS CONTENANT DES ÉLÉMENTS DE CE TYPE
Abstract
(EN)
Impact-attenuation members include: (a) an impact-attenuating member and (b) a shear resistant member engaged with the impact-attenuating member. Another example impact-attenuation member includes a shear resistant member having a continuous wall that bulges outward on opposing sides when in an uncompressed base orientation. The shear resistant members may be structured and arranged to allow bending or compression against impact forces in one direction (e.g., when landing a step or a jump), but remain highly stable against shear or lateral forces in another direction (e.g. , in a side-to-side direction). Such impact-attenuation members may be used in footwear products, including in athletic footwear.
(FR)
Éléments d'atténuation d'impact, comprenant: (a) un élément d'atténuation d'impact et (b) un élément résistant au cisaillement engagé avec l'élément d'atténuation d'impact. Un autre exemple d'élément d'atténuation d'impact comprend un élément résistant au cisaillement présentant une paroi continue qui enfle vers l'extérieur sur des côtés opposés lorsqu'il se trouve dans une orientation de base non comprimée. Les éléments résistant au cisaillement peuvent être structurés et agencés de manière à permettre une flexion ou une compression en réponse à des forces d'impact dans une direction (par exemple, à la réception d'un pas ou d'un saut), mais qui restent extrêmement stables face à des forces latérales ou de cisaillement dans une autre direction (par exemple, dans une direction d'un côté à l'autre). Des éléments d'atténuation d'impact de ce type peuvent être utilisés dans des produits de chaussure, y compris des chaussures pour athlètes.
