Title (EN) NOISE REDUCTION DEVICE FOR ARTICULATING JOINT, AND A LIMB SUPPORT DEVICE HAVING THE SAME
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE RÉDUCTION DU BRUIT POUR JOINT D'ARTICULATION, ET DISPOSITIF SUPPORT DE MEMBRE POSSÉDANT LEDIT DISPOSITIF
Abstract:
(EN) An articulating connection or joint for a limb support device having a first support member and a second support member pivotably couples together the first support member and the second support member. The articulating connection can include one or more first articulating connection member, or load-bearing pin, and one or more second articulating connection member, or bushing, disposed about the first and second support members. The load- bearing pin is coupled to one of the support members and the bushing is coupled to another of the support members. The bushing is configured to rotatingly receive the load-bearing pin and interacts with an actuation member configured to apply a force on the load-bearing pin to eccentrically align the load-bearing pin relative to the bushing so that the load-bearing pin continuously follows and contacts a bearing surface of the bushing during use of the limb support device, thereby inhibiting noise generation from the interaction of the bushing and load- bearing pin.
(FR) L'invention concerne une connexion ou joint d'articulation pour dispositif support de membre doté d'un premier élément support et d'un second élément support accouplant de manière pivotante le premier élément support et le second élément support. La connexion d'articulation peut comprendre un ou plusieurs premiers éléments de connexion d'articulation, ou broches porteuses, et un ou plusieurs seconds éléments de connexion d'articulation, ou douilles, entourant le premier élément support et le second élément support. La broche porteuse est couplée à l'un des éléments supports et la douille est couplée à un autre des éléments supports. La douille est configurée pour recevoir en rotation la broche porteuse et interagit avec un élément d'actionnement configuré pour appliquer une force sur la broche porteuse pour aligner de manière excentrée la broche porteuse par rapport à la douille de sorte que la broche porteuse suit de manière continue et entre en contact avec une surface d'appui de la douille pendant l'utilisation du dispositif support de membre, empêchant ainsi la production de bruit du fait de l'interaction de la douille et de la broche porteuse.
