(FR) DISPOSITIF DE PRÉHENSION FLEXIBLE
Abstract
(EN)
A variety of flexible body harnesses are provided to distribute loads comfortably and evenly across one or more segments of the human body. The trajectories of load-bearing straps of the provided body harnesses apply shear to underlying portions of skin of a body segment evenly across the length of the load-bearing straps. Such trajectories can approximate catenary curves as the straps encircle the body segment. The trajectories of such straps around a body segment are maintained by attaching the straps to an underlayer, by incorporating the straps into a flexible material, and/or by weaving further straps around the load-bearing straps to maintain their relative location and/or curvature. Such body harnesses can be provided as part of assistive, rehabilitative, prosthetic, or strength-enhancing systems configured to apply forces to the body via the body harnesses.

La présente invention concerne différents harnais corporels flexibles pour distribuer des charges confortablement et uniformément sur un ou plusieurs segments du corps humain. Les trajectoires de sangles de support de charge des harnais corporels décrits appliquent un cisaillement à des parties sous-jacentes de la peau d’un segment corporel uniformément le long de la longueur des sangles de support de charge. De telles trajectoires peuvent présenter des courbes approximativement caténaires lorsque les sangles encerclent le segment corporel. Les trajectoires de ces sangles autour d’un segment corporel sont maintenues par fixation des sangles à une sous-couche, par incorporation des sangles dans un matériau flexible, et/ou par tissage de bandes supplémentaires autour des sangles de support de charge pour maintenir leurs emplacement et/ou courbures relatifs. De tels harnais corporels peuvent être fournis en tant que partie de systèmes d’assistance, de rééducation, prothétiques ou de renforcement configurés pour appliquer des forces au corps par l’intermédiaire des harnais corporels.
