Title: DEVICE HAVING A PLURALITY OF JOINT BODIES WHICH ARE ARRANGED NEXT TO ONE ANOTHER
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device having a plurality of joint bodies (10a - 10e), which are arranged next to one another, and at least one tension rope (12) that connects the joint bodies (10a - 10e) in a chain-like manner, wherein in each case two adjacent joint bodies (10a - 10e) are pivotally connected to one another via mating joint surfaces (16a, 16b; 18a, 18b), and wherein a friction moment acting between the joint surfaces (16a, 16b; 18a, 18b) can be adjusted by a change in tension of the tension rope (12). According to the invention, it is proposed to equip the device with at least one electrically actuatable actuator (14), which is integrated into the device, for tightening and loosening the tension rope (12).
