Abstract

The exerciser consists of a pedal assembly, seat and back, all mounted on sliders which can be adjusted on a supporting frame located in a water tank. The seat is designed so it can slide horizontally, while the pedal assembly can be adjusted vertically on a support which slides horizontally, with each slider capable of being locked after adjustment. The exerciser also has a lever connected to a braking mechanism which allows the effort required to turn the pedals to be increased if required.

En référence a ces dessins, le dispositif comporte un appareil composé d'un pédalier (5) monté sur un systéme coulissant (19) rendu mobile verticalement de bas en haut par un piètement (21). Referring to these drawings, the device comprises a unit composed of a pedal (5) mounted on a sliding system (19) made movable vertically from bottom to top by a base (21). Le piètement (21) muni à chaque extrèmité d'un systéme coulissant est maintenu ver-ticalement en haut par le systeme coulissant (3) monté sur le support (2), en bas par le système coulissant (16),monté sur le support (9). The base (21) provided at each end of a sliding system is maintained ver-tically at the top by the sliding system (3) mounted on the support (2), at the bottom by the slide system (16), mounted on the support (9). lie piètement (21) est rendu mobile horizontalement d'avant on arrière. binding base (21) is made movable horizontally before it back. Par cet assemblage le pédalier (5) peut ëtre règlé à nauteur choisie avant d'etre immobilisé par un moyen de verrouillage (18) qui équipe le système coulissant (19). For this assembly the crank (5) may be set to nauteur selected before being immobilized by a locking means (18) fitted to the sliding system (19). L'ensemble pédalier (5) solidaire au piètement (?I) peut etre réglé en avant ou en arrière et immobilisé en position voulue par les moyen de blocages (4) et (@@). The pedal assembly (5) integral with the underframe (? I) can be adjusted forwards or backwards and secured in a desired position by means of locks (4) and (@@).

Un fauteuil comprenant un siege (6) et un dossier (8) inclinables est monte sur un systeme coulissant (1 (12), qui est assemble sur le support (9) qui lui permet d'etre mobile horizontalement d'avant en arriere. Par ce moyen le fauteuil peut etre réglé à la distance dèsirée. Une fois le réglage effectue, le fauteuil peut etre immobilise dans sa position par un dispositif de olocage (13). une poignée (14) placee sur le coté gauche , est solidaire du fauteuil, elle permet a l'utilisateur de se tenir. Un systeme ae treinage (15) est relié a la poignée (14) la manipulation du levier (non represente) du systeme de Ireinage (15) entraînera le serrage de la couronne du pédalier (5) et creera une senssatlon d'effort musculaire en appuyant sur les pedales. A chair comprising a seat (6) and a back (8) is mounted tiltable on a sliding system (1 (12), which is assembled on the support (9) which allows it to be horizontally movable back and forth. thereby the wheelchair can be adjusted to the desired distance. once the adjustment carried out, the wheelchair can be fixed in its position by a olocage device (13). a handle (14) disposed on the left side, is integral with the chair, it allows the user to stand. A ae treinage system (15) is connected to the handle (14) handling lever (not shown) of Ireinage system (15) will result in tightening of the pedal ring (5) and will create a senssatlon muscular effort by pressing the pedals.
