Title
(EN) VIBRATING TOOTHBRUSH AND A REPLACEABLE BRUSH HEAD FOR USE WITH THE SAME
(FR) BROSSE À DENTS VIBRANTE ET TÊTE DE BROSSE REMPLAÇABLE DEVANT ÊTRE UTILISÉE AVEC CELLE-CI
Abstract
(EN)
A vibrating toothbrush comprising a handle including a body with a tubular member extending outwardly from one end. A replaceable sleeve slides over the tubular member and detachably engages the body. One or more of the sleeve, tubular member and body incorporates a vibration damping zone for reducing vibration transmission from the sleeve to the handle. The damping zone is one of a material that differs in damping properties to the material of the rest of the toothbrush; a hole defined in the one of the sleeve, tubular member and body, and a toothbrush where that hole is filled with an elastomeric material.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur une brosse à dents vibrante qui comporte un manche comprenant un corps avec un élément tubulaire s'étendant vers l'extérieur à partir d'une extrémité. Un manchon remplaçable coulisse sur l'élément tubulaire et vient en prise de manière détachable avec le corps. Le manchon et/ou l'élément tubulaire et/ou le corps incorpore une zone d'amortissement des vibrations de façon à réduire la transmission des vibrations du manchon au manche. La zone d'amortissement est une zone faite d'un matériau dont les propriétés d'amortissement diffèrent de celle du matériau du reste de la brosse à dents; un trou est défini dans le manchon et/ou l'élément tubulaire et/ou le corps. L'invention porte également sur une brosse à dents dans laquelle ledit trou est rempli d'une matière élastomère.
