Abstract

The massager has a container housing a motor 7 and fan 14 for generating a vacuum and a tube 5 leading to a flexible hose 3 and massage head 2. The latter has a smooth surface which may be lubricated to reduce friction. A short tube 10 leads from the other side of the fan compartment to an air vent 11. The fan may have curved blades and is so arranged as to expel air through the tube 10. In a hand-held model (Fig. 8 - not shown), the flexible hose may be omitted. <IMAGE>

Description

VACUUM BODY MASSAGER This invention relates to a vacuum body massager.

The vacuum body massager comprises of a 750-1000 watts motor to create vacuum at the end of a flexible hose to which is attached the massager. It is to be used to massage the muscles of the human body, from head to foot, when the massager is run along the contours of the body. The action of the massager will boost the actions of the body's natural muscular pumps such as the soleus pump in the lower leg thereby improving the circulation of the blood. It may therefore ease bodily pain and stress, relax muscles and improve health generally. The vacuum body massager can also be used as an exerciser.

According to the present invention there is provided a vacuum body massager comprising of 750-1000 watts motor at the end of which there is a fan system, in the form of a motor-fan system, a tube system, a means to attach a flexible hose, and a massager to be attached to the end of the flexible hose. It will not be necessary to exert any force on the muscles of body as the vacuum body massager works by suction to realign muscles. The external power requirements may be AC 120/220/240 volts, 50/60 Hz, recommended for use with 30 Amps fuse.

A specific embodiment of the invention will now be described by way of an example with reference to the accompanying drawings in which: Figure 1 shows a cross-section of the vacuum body massager with all components attached; Figure 2 shows the front view; Figure 3 illustrates the rear view; Figure 4 shows the top view; Figure 5 shows the motor with the fan attached, motor-fan system; Figure 6 illustrates the fan system; Figure 7 illustrates the massager; Figure 8 illustrates the hand-held model.

Referring to the drawings the vacuum body massager comprises of a container 1 housing both the motor compartment 13 and tube compartment 16.

The external features of the body vacuum massager as shown in fig 1, fig 2, fig 3, and fig 4, include: a handle 4, a switch 9, air vent 11, support 12, the flexible hose 3 which can be screwed or attached to the end of the tube 5, and the massager 2. It is important that the massager should have a smooth surface which can be lubricated.

The internal features as illustrated in fig 1 include: the motor compartment 13 and the tube compartments 16. The motor compartment 13 comprises of the fan compartment 6, in which the motor 7 with the fan 14 attached, forming the motor-fan system freely rotates. At one end of the fan compartment 6, is a short tube 10 which leads into the air vent 11. At the other end is also a tube 5 which leads into the tube compartment 16. At the junction between the motor compartment 13 and the tube compartment 16, at one end of the tube is a mesh 15 which acts as a filter. The tube 5 then extends to the top of the container at the end of which the flexible hose 3 can be attached.

Referring to fig 5; The motor-fan system is made up of a 750-1000 watts motor 7 to which the fan 14 is attached. The motor 7 can be attached to the motor house by means of screws. The power source can be from the external electric mains 8 through a switch 9. Above the motor 7 is also an air vent 17.

The fan system as shown in fig 6 comprises of curved blades 14 which are attached to the motor 7 to rotate clockwise; Entering the chamber in which the blades of fan system 14 will rotate, the fan compartment 6, is the tube 5 which extends into the flexible hose 3, and leaving the fan compartment 6 is the short tube 10 leading to the air vents 11. The fan 14 is attached to the motor as shown in fig 5. The arrangement of the blades of the fan 14 should be such that air is expelled through the tube 10 and vacuum created in the tube 3 as the blades rotate.

Fig 7 shows the massager 2 which will be contact with the intact skin and moved along the contours of the body from head to foot to massage the body. The end of the massager could be lubricated to reduce friction and to prevent any scratches made to the skin.

The massager could be moved by the hand all the body of the user. The parts of the body where the hand cannot reach such as the back, a second person could be asked to do the operation for the benefit of the subject.

For easy packing, the massager 2 could be detached from the flexible hose 3, and the flexible hose also detached from the main body of vacuum body massager 1. The reverse sequence can be carried out to reassemble the equipment.

Fig 8 refers to a hand-held model comprising of all the features described above except the flexible hose 3. The power of the motor can be reduced to 200-500 watts.
