The specific embodiment

Embodiments of the invention and accompanying drawing below are described.

Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 are an example of embodiment of the present invention, and as shown in the figure, the part that has identical bis is represented same parts.Basic comprising of the present invention is same as the prior art, and as the feature of embodiment among the figure, as shown in the figure, the power of motor 9 makes by horizontal gear 8 and will be rotated by the gear-bearing 12 fixing spur gears 6 of body 3.This rotary power is sent to eccentric cam 7 by gear shaft 11, is transformed into the sliding motion that is parallel to the body long axis direction by the crank swiveling wheel 5 that embeds by the outside of the eccentric cam 7 of body 3 guiding.The sliding motion of crank swiveling wheel 5 passes to and the brushhead element 2 coaxial slide blocks that are connected 4, makes at the cleaning brush 1 of leading section embedding moulding and does sliding motion.At this moment, with the direction of the sliding motion of body 3 opposing parallel of crank swiveling wheel 5 by crooked with rubber-like slide block 4 coaxial brushhead element 2 in-planes that are connected or stereo directional and set.Grip the body 3 of the illustrative electronic Oral cleaner of aforementioned figures, cleaning brush 1 is inserted between cog portion, driving force cleaning brush 1 by motor 9 is done sliding motion, need not start to make cleaning brush at cheek tongue direction slight movement, but and when inactive state the also bacterial plaque of automated cleaning between cog portion.

In addition, as shown in Figure 2, make the brushhead element 2 of soft resin moulding, coaxial connection is by the brushhead of the annealed metal line 17 that contains the permanent deformation rerum natura of embedding moulding, as Fig. 3, Fig. 4, shown in Figure 5, can freely change solid shape with the finger pressure mode,, make cleaning brush 1 arrive the purpose position so can avoid cheek or tongue.Moreover, as shown in Figure 2, behind the oral cleaning brushhead element 2 is become the shape that is fit to Storage case 19, after restoring, distortion gives folding and unfolding by the finger pressure mode.

As the folding and unfolding method, as Fig. 8, Fig. 9, shown in Figure 10, be provided with hinge 25 by connecting portion at body 3 and brushhead element 2, as shown in Figure 8, because collapsible folding and unfolding, so electronic Oral cleaner total length of (when carrying) when non-the use can be dwindled; And in use, as shown in Figure 9, can brush protection portion 22 from body and take out brushhead element 2 and cleaning brush 1, shown in 10, can freely change the form of brushhead element 2 by the finger pressure mode along with the application target position.

In addition, in the motion of the cleaning brush 1 electronic Oral cleaner that rotatablely moves as shown in Figure 7 different with sliding motion as shown in Figure 1, the power of motor 9 makes will be by fixing spur gears 6 rotations of the gear-bearing 12 of body 3 by horizontal gear 8.This rotary power passes to brush rotating shaft horizontal gear 27, make slide block 4 rotations that are contained in by the portion that is slidably engaged 23 of body 3 guiding, constitute identical with cleaning brush 1 rotation by described slide block 4, because by embedding the annealed metal line 17 that moulding contains the permanent deformation rerum natura at brushhead element 2, make brushhead element 2 change over solid shape with the finger pressure mode, so that the position that the cleaning brush 1 easy arrival that rotatablely moves will be cleaned.

As shown in figure 11, identical with the electronic Oral cleaner of the mechanism that is rotated sliding motion that further develops, also can make cleaning brush 1 arrive the purpose position easily.The rotary power that motor 9 takes place in this mechanism also can make druum cam 30 rotations of adorning at aforementioned sliding cam major axis 35 making 35 rotations of sliding cam major axis by sliding axle junction surface 32 when.Can be pressed into the portion that is convexly equipped with the push rod 31 of druum cam 30 disengaged positions with the finger pressure mode by push rod helical spring 33, usually contact with the druum cam 30 that is crimped to motor 9 sides by camshaft helical spring 29, add to rotatablely move at sliding cam major axis 35 then can produce sliding motion.This rotational slide campaign then is passed to brush rotational slide axle 34 by brush rotating shaft junction surface 28, makes cleaning brush 1 produce the rotational slide campaign thus.This is rotated the cleaning brush 1 of sliding motion, because but free stereo changes the form that the annealed metal line 17 that contains the permanent deformation rerum natura embeds the brushhead element 2 of moulding, so only not only can keep cleaning purpose the position, also can clear away bacterial plaque automatically without manual mode makes cleaning brush buccally tongue direction slight movement.

More than whole electronic Oral cleaners, as Fig. 1, Fig. 2, Fig. 7, Fig. 8, Fig. 9, Figure 10, Figure 11, Figure 22, Figure 23, Figure 24, Figure 27, Figure 28, shown in Figure 29, the brushhead element 2 that contains cleaning brush 1 and slide block 4, owing to form alienable structure by body 3 and rotation that is slidably engaged portion 23 or insertion fixed mechanism, so because of using cleaning brush 1 to consume repeatedly or when polluting, can take off brushhead element 2 and change new element in addition, body 3 (motor 9 and battery 10) then can continue to use.

Moreover, cleaning brush 1 with the electronic Oral cleaner of aforementioned rotational slide campaign, as shown in figure 12, mao form of planting that is radial cleaning brush portion of planting hair from brush axle, brush the axial length direction of principal axis cleaning brush of shape arrangement in the shape of a spiral relatively, can automatically clear away the bacterial plaque of certain orientation by rotatablely moving.Perhaps, as Figure 13, shown in Figure 14, will from brush axle be radial hair end major axis of planting hair cleaning brush portion direction of rotation or relatively cleaning brush rotating shaft major axis preceding extreme direction the back extreme direction has or the mode angulation of plus or minus angle plant that cleaning brush that hair arranges and the relative cleaning brush direction of rotation of brush leading section of planting mao in rotational slide campaign cleaning brush portion as shown in figure 15 are positive direction or against the cleaning brush of direction bending, even the bacterial plaque that the tooth alveole is split groove or between cog portion also can be brought into play high cleaning capacity.Figure 12 is to cleaning brush shape shown in Figure 15, but each improves cleaning capacity separately, but also can pass through further its ability of performance of combination mutually.

Moreover the bending mechanism of brushhead such as Figure 16 be to shown in Figure 180, and when utilizing two annealed metal lines that contain the permanent deformation rerum natura, but the flexion that the brushhead shape is as shown in figure 19 by the finger pressure mode becomes the arbitrarily angled of certain orientation.The configuration variation of bending position that also can contain the annealed metal line of permanent deformation rerum natura by as shown in figure 30 two is fixed its bending direction; Also can be as Figure 20 and shown in Figure 21, by long axis direction being disposed and 90 jiaos of bending mechanisms that angle is same of rotation, also make brushhead change over more complicated three-dimensional shape, so can be not easy the position that directly arrives by carrying out the painted angle of bend of each bend and the ideal form that order manualization is deformed into the easy realization of common people of waiting for molar process between cog portion etc. by the finger pressure mode.This only we can say that to the mechanism of certain orientation bending identical being very easy to when playing with folding and unfolding get back to the effect of the state of straight line.

Moreover, Figure 22 to Figure 29 represents practical embodiment, as shown in figure 24, the annealed metal lines 17 that contain the permanent deformation rerum natura with two in device on the leading section of the brushhead element 2 of dismountable soft resin embed moulding, when the center of its brushhead element 2 keeps brush bearing portion 13, one end is being adorned cleaning brush 1, and the other end is equipped with druum cam 30, has 4 coaxial connections of slide block of bearing portion 42 with the plurality of positions of brushhead madial wall contact.Aforementioned druum cam 30, as Figure 25, shown in Figure 26, have the polygonal holes of putting into the sliding axle 41 that is used to transmit motor major axis revolving force in the inboard, in that long axis direction surface periphery starting point is identical with terminating point relatively, the long axis direction of ring-type has the cam path 44 of smooth displacement.This cam path 44 turns around so motor whenever revolves owing to engage with the cam notches 43 of the madial wall that is positioned at brushhead element 2, then takes place once to move back and forth (sliding motion).This rotational slide moves through bearing portion 42, when brushhead element 2 anxious angular bend as shown in figure 22, not only can be suppressed at minimum of a value with driving to reduce, and also can prevent the heating and the noise that produce because of friction.Moreover, the shape of slide block zigzag part 4a performance resilient flexible, opposite slide block line part 4b is for having rigid shape, still, because of brush bearing portion 13 keeps accurate, so the direction vibration beyond can preventing axially during cleaning brush 1 rotational slide campaign and the cleaning brush that produces resonates.Other embodiment, as Figure 27 and shown in Figure 28, direction of principal axis has the bearing of the crank pin portion 46 of groove in vertical direction relatively, the rotatablely moving of crank axle 45 of transmitting motor 9 driving forces is transformed into rotatablely moving repeatedly of druum cam 30, moreover, rotational slide campaign repeatedly takes place via slide block 4 at cleaning brush 1 by the cam notches 43 of brushhead element 2 in the cam path 44 of incision druum cam 30.Moreover, when using linear electric machine 24, as shown in figure 29, incision linear electric machine crank axle 47 rotates freely the cam path 44 of the druum cam 30 of installation at direction of principal axis, cam notches 43 by brushhead element 2, the sliding motion of linear electric machine 24 is become rotational slide campaign repeatedly, be passed to cleaning brush 1 via slide block 4.

In addition, all shapes of the present invention, axial wood and contain the material of the annealed metal line of permanent deformation rerum natura, and by cleaning purpose and the sliding motion of the cleaning brush shape determined, cleaning brush, rotatablely move or the utilization of mechanism such as rotational slide campaign and the linear electric machine mechanism in the dynamical system of electric rotating machine 9 etc., certainly all be not limited in the above-mentioned accompanying drawing example, can carry out many variations without departing from the spirit and scope of the present invention.
