Title (EN) STEADY RATIO FOUR-BAR LINKAGE FOR GENUFLECTIVE ENERGY HARVESTING
(FR) LIAISON À QUATRE BARRES À RAPPORT STABLE POUR LA COLLECTE D'ÉNERGIE DE FLEXION DU GENOU
Abstract:
(EN) A mechanism has four connected links to mimic the motion of a knee joint. A lower link is oriented towards the vertical. A leverage ratio between flexion of the knee and relative angular displacement of certain links in the mechanism remains fairly steady over much of the range of motion of the mechanism. The mechanism may be used to drive an energy harvesting gearbox with steadier and more efficient energy harvesting at deep flexion, as well as with quieter operation.
(FR) Un mécanisme comporte quatre liens connectés pour imiter le mouvement d'une articulation de genou. Un maillon inférieur est orienté vers la verticale. Un rapport de levier entre la flexion du genou et le déplacement angulaire relatif de certains maillons dans le mécanisme reste relativement stable sur une grande partie de la plage de mouvement du mécanisme. Le mécanisme peut être utilisé pour entraîner une boîte de vitesses de collecte d'énergie avec une récupération d'énergie plus constante et plus efficace en flexion profonde, ainsi qu'avec un fonctionnement plus silencieux.
