Description

Die Erfindung bezieht sich auf eine Gewichtsmanschette mit einer eine Gewichtseinlage aufnehmenden Umhüllung. The invention relates to a cuff weight with a weight insert-receiving enclosure.

Im Fitneß- und Gesundheitsbereich sowie bei der Rehabilitation werden zur spezifischen Kräftigung der Muskulatur neben Hanteln und Gewichten auch Manschetten mit Gewichtseinlagen verwendet. In the fitness and health sector and in the rehabilitation of the muscles next to dumbbells and free weights are also cuffs with filler weights used for specific strengthening. Diese Gewichtsmanschetten bestehen üblicherweise aus länglichen, mit Sand befüllten Stoff- bzw. Kunststoffbeuteln, die quer zu ihrer Längsrichtung Abnäher aufweisen und um ein Hand- oder Fußgelenk gewickelt werden, wobei zum Fixieren dieser Gewichtsmanschetten Klettbänder dienen. These weight collars usually consist of elongated, filled with sand cloth or plastic bags, which have transversely to their longitudinal direction and darts are wrapped around a wrist or ankle, and are Velcro strips for securing this weight cuffs. Das Anlegen solcher Manschetten ist demnach recht umständlich und bringt außerdem nur einen losen, verrutschbaren Sitz mit sich. The creation of such collars is therefore quite cumbersome and also brings only a loose, verrutschbaren seat with him.

Eine änhiche Gewichtsmanschette ist in US-A-4 384 714 offenbart. A änhiche weight sleeve is disclosed in US-A-4,384,714.

Der Erfindung liegt daher die Aufgabe zugrunde, eine Gewichtsmanschette der eingangs geschilderten Art zu schaffen, die sich durch ihre einfache Handhabung und ihren sicheren Sitz auszeichnet. The invention is therefore based on the object of creating a weight cuff of the type described, which is characterized by its ease of use and its secure fit.

Die Erfindung löst diese Aufgabe dadurch, daß in die Umhüllung eine formgebende längsgeschlitzte zylindrische Federspange eingebettet ist. The invention achieves this object in that a shaping longitudinally slotted cylindrical spring clip is embedded in the cladding. Durch diese einfache Maßnahme läßt sich die Gewichtsmanschette leicht und geschickt handhaben und an den gewünschten Stellen der Extremitäten aufstecken und problemlos justieren, wobei auf Grund der Federwirkung der Federspange stets guter Halt gewährleistet ist. By this simple measure, the weight cuff can be easily and skillfully handle and fit at the desired locations of the extremities and easily adjust, and due to the spring action of the spring clip good hold is always ensured. Der Übende kann somit die Position der Gewichtsmanschette jederzeit verändern, so daß eine individuelle Anpassung der Übungsintensität leicht und ohne Übungsunterbrechung möglich ist. The practitioner can thus change the position of Gewichtsmanschette any time, so that an individual adjustment of the exercise intensity is possible easily and without interruption exercise.

Die Gewichtseinlage kann unterschiedlich ausgebildet sein und beispielsweise aus Metallpulver, Sand, Kunststoff (eventuell höherer Dichte) od. dgl. bestehen. The weight insert may be designed differently and for example, metal powder, sand, plastic (possibly higher density) or. The like. Exist. Besonders vorteilhaft ist es jedoch, wenn die Federspange Metaliplatten als Gewichtseinlage trägt, wobei die Metallplatten gegebenenfalls untereinander verbunden sind. Particularly advantageous, however, is when the spring clasp carries metal plates as a weight insert, the metal plates are optionally interconnected. Metallplatten eignen sich wegen ihres geringen Raumbedarfes besonders gut als Gewichte und erlauben es, geringere Abmessungen der Gewichtsmanschetten einzuhalten, wozu noch kommt, daß die Metallplatten, vor allem wenn sie miteinander verbunden sind, einfach an der aus Kunststoff, Federstahl od. dgl. bestehenden Federspange befestigt werden können. Metal plates are suitable because of their low space requirement particularly well as weights and allow it to comply with smaller dimensions of the ankle weights, which must be added is that the metal plates, especially if they are connected, simply od on the plastic, spring steel. Like. Existing spring clip can be attached.

Ist die vorzugsweise innenseitig eine Polsterung aufweisende Federspange in die Umhüllung eingeschäumt, ergibt sich zusammen mit einer entsprechend gewählten Umhüllung aus weichem Kunststoff ein guter Tragekomfort. Is preferably inside a cushioning spring clip having foamed into the sheath, it follows along with a correspondingly selected coating of soft plastic material, a good wearing comfort. Außerdem läßt sich diese Manschette leicht und hygienisch reinigen, da sie wasserdicht und somit abwaschbar ist. Moreover, this sleeve can be easily and hygienically clean because it is waterproof and therefore washable.

In der Zeichnung ist der Erfindungsgegenstand beispielsweise dargestellt. In the drawing, the subject invention is shown, for example. Es zeigen Fig.1 und 2 eine erfindungsgemäße Gewichtsmanschette im Längsschnitt nach der Linie II der Fig. 2 bzw. im Querschnitt nach der Linie II-II der Fig.1. In the figures 1 and 2 a Gewichtsmanschette the invention in longitudinal section along the line II of Fig. 2 and in cross section along the line II-II of Fig.1.

Eine Gewichtsmanschette 1 besitzt die Form einer Armspange und besteht aus einer Umhüllung 2, in der eine Federspange 3 eingebettet ist. A weight cuff 1 has the form of a bangle and consists of a casing 2, in which a spring clip is embedded. 3 An der Außenseite der Federspangen 3 sind Metallplatten 4 befestigt und an der Innenseite ist eine Polsterung 5 angeordnet. On the outer side of the spring clips 3 metal plates 4 are secured to the inside of a cushion 5 is arranged. Die Federspange 3 ist samt Metallplatten 4 und Polsterung 5 in die Umhüllung 2 eingeschäumt. The spring clip 3 is foamed together with the metal plates 4 and 5 upholstery in the enclosure. 2
