Title (EN) SHOULDER BRACES AND METHODS OF USE
(FR) REDRESSEURS ET PROCÉDÉS D’UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) A shoulder brace has: a support structure; strap retractors such as flat spiral torsion springs mounted to the support structure; and left and right shoulder straps each having a first strap part connected to the support structure and a second strap part connected to a free end of a respective spiral torsion spring. A method has the following stages: positioning a support structure against a user's upper back; looping left and right shoulder straps around a user's left and right shoulders, respectively; and in which each of the left and right shoulder straps connects to the support structure via a strap retractor, such as a spiral torsion spring for applying tension through the respective left or right shoulder strap to pull the user' s shoulders back.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une épaulière qui comporte : une structure de support ; des rétracteurs de sangle tels que des ressorts de torsion spiralés plats montés sur la structure de support ; et des épaulières gauche et droite comportant chacune une première partie de sangle raccordée à la structure de support et une deuxième partie de sangle raccordée à une extrémité libre d’un ressort de torsion spiralé respectif. Un procédé comporte les étapes suivantes : positionnement d’une structure de support contre le haut du dos d’un utilisateur ; bouclage d’épaulières autour des épaules gauche et droite de l’utilisateur, respectivement ; et dans lequel chacune des épaulières gauche et droite est reliée à la structure de support par l’intermédiaire d’un rétracteur de sangle, tel qu’un ressort de torsion spiralé pour appliquer une tension par l’intermédiaire des épaulières gauche et droite respectives afin de tirer l’arrière des épaules de l’utilisateur.
