Title (EN) A DEVICE FOR ENHANCING A USER'S GRASPING CAPABILITY
(FR) DISPOSITIF POUR RENFORCER LA CAPACITÉ DE PRÉHENSION D'UN UTILISATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A device (100) for enhancing a user's (1) grasping capability comprises a belt- like support (102) configured to be tightly fitted about a user's (1 ) part of the body (3); at least one articulated gripping element (130) having a plurality of phalanxes: proximal (131), fixed to the support (102), intermediate (132) and distal (133), which are articulated to each other by articular joints (135); a motor unit (120) fixed to the support (102); a winding drum (125); at least one tendon (140) partially wound on the drum (125) and extending along the phalanxes (131,132,133) and the joints (135), arranged in such a way that, by pulling it from the drum (125), the phalanxes (131,132,133) rotate about respective articular joints (135) and move the articulated gripping element (130) from an extended position (A) to a gripping bow-shaped position (B), causing a flexion/extension movement of the articulated gripping element (130), the joints (135) configured in such a way that by releasing the tendon (140) from the drum (125), the phalanxes (131,132,133) rotate about the respective joints (135) and move the articulated gripping element (130) between gripping bow-shaped position (B) and extended position (A).
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif (100) destiné à renforcer la capacité de préhension d'un utilisateur (1) et comportant un support (102) semblable à une courroie, configuré pour être ajusté de façon serrée autour d'une partie du corps (3) d'un utilisateur (1); au moins un élément articulé (130) de préhension doté d'une pluralité de phalanges; : proximales (131), fixées au support (102), intermédiaires (132) et distales (133), qui sont articulées les unes aux autres par des jointures articulaires (135); une unité motrice (120) fixée au support (102); un tambour (125) d'enroulement; au moins un tendon (140) partiellement enroulé sur le tambour (125) et s'étendant le long des phalanges (131,132,133) et des jointures (135), disposé de telle façon qu'en le tirant à partir du tambour (125), les phalanges (131,132,133) pivotent autour de jointures articulaires (135) respectives et fassent passer l'élément articulé (130) de préhension d'une position déployée (A) à une position de préhension (B) en forme d'arc, provoquant un mouvement de flexion/extension de l'élément articulé (130) de préhension, les jointures (135) étant configurées de telle façon qu'en relâchant le tendon (140) à partir du tambour (125), les phalanges (131,132,133) pivotent autour des jointures (135) respectives et déplacent l'élément articulé (130) de préhension entre la position de préhension (B) en forme d'arc et la position déployée (A).
