Title
(EN) HUMAN SUPPORT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE SUPPORT POUR LE CORPS HUMAIN
Abstract
(EN)
Adjustable support systems are provided for holding human arms in fixed or moving positions, and providing support for other portions of the body that may be subjected to strain. The support systems are configurable for use in a variety of postures including sitting, standing and crouching. Dynamic support components are incorporated into the system to counter forces on a user created by a user's posture or objects a user is lifting or working with. The pivoting joints can be compliant within a settable range of motion, and the torsional forces produced at the pivoting joints can be variable by use of an elastic element acting across the fixed and movable sides of the rotary joints.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes de support ajustables pour maintenir des bras humains dans des positions fixes ou mobiles, et supporter d'autres parties du corps humain pouvant être soumises à des tensions. Ces systèmes de support peuvent être configurés pour être utilisés dans différentes positions, y compris la position assise, la position debout et la position accroupie. Des composants de support dynamique sont incorporés dans le système pour opposer une résistance aux forces exercées sur un utilisateur, créées par la position de l'utilisateur ou les objets que l'utilisateur soulève ou avec lesquels il travaille. Les joints pivotants peuvent être déformés dans une plage de mouvement réglable, et les forces de torsion produites au niveau des points pivotants peuvent être modifiées au moyen d'un élément élastique agissant sur les côtés fixes et mobiles des joints rotatifs.
