PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a walker allowing a person with lumbago to walk for a long distance without any backache.SOLUTION: A belt wound around the waist is fixed to a shaft attached in the vertical direction. The shaft is fixed to an undercarriage (a frame). The body weight of a user is supported by the undercarriage via the shaft. By means of a free-direction front wheel mounted in a front direction of the undercarriage and a free-directional rear wheel mounted on a rearward of the undercarriage 5, the user can walk, with the vicinity of the waist supported thereby, without applying any load of the upper half of the body to the backbone, the hip joint, and the knees.


本発明は全国1300万人が悩んでいる腰痛(背中管狭窄症や椎間板ヘルニア)の痛み無く長距離を歩ける画期的歩行器に関し、更に詳しくは脚も鍛えられ、脚のポンプ作用で全身の血流がよくなり、健康になる上、介添え人も不要なので費用がかからず他人に迷惑をかけず、腰痛なく足のしびれも無く屋外でも長距離を歩け、両手を使わないので、両手を他の目的に使うことができる歩行器に関する。   The present invention relates to a revolutionary walker that can walk long distances without back pain (back canal stenosis or intervertebral disc herniation) that 13 million people nationwide suffer from, and more specifically, the legs are trained and the whole body is pumped by the legs. Since blood flow improves, health is not required, no attendant is required, it does not cost money, it does not bother others, it does not cause back pain, there is no numbness in the legs, and it can walk long distances outdoors and does not use both hands. It relates to a walker that can be used for other purposes.
人類の歴史は、四足歩行から二足歩行に変わり、椎骨の縦に重力がかかり、椎骨4番、5番あたりの脊中管内の神経の圧迫や、筋肉痛、脳記憶痛、仙腸関節ずれなどによる腰痛や足のしびれ等により、十メートルくらいしか歩けなくなる間欠歩行症になるが、これに対する解決法は無かった。また、従来の歩行器(ウォーカー)では、病院内で使えても、道路や屋外では使用に適しなかった。   The history of mankind has changed from quadruped to biped, gravity is applied vertically to the vertebrae, nerve pressure in the spinal canal around vertebrae 4 and 5, muscle pain, brain memory pain, sacroiliac joint Due to low back pain and numbness of the foot due to slippage, etc., intermittent gait can only be walked about 10 meters, but there is no solution for this. In addition, conventional walkeres (walkers) can be used in hospitals but are not suitable for use on roads or outdoors.
前述したように、腰痛の人は歩行が困難である。本発明はこのような課題に鑑みてなされたものであって、背中管狭窄症、筋肉痛、脳記憶痛、仙腸関節ずれ、などによる腰痛や足のしびれ等により歩行が困難な人が道路や屋外で長距離歩行ができるようにした歩行器を提供することを目的としている。   As described above, it is difficult for people with back pain to walk. The present invention has been made in view of such problems, and a person who has difficulty walking because of back pain due to back canal stenosis, muscle pain, brain memory pain, sacroiliac joint misalignment, etc. It aims to provide a walker that can walk long distances outdoors.
請求項1記載の発明は、腰付近を支持しながら歩行することを特徴としている。   The invention according to claim 1 is characterized by walking while supporting the vicinity of the waist.
本発明によれば、背中管狭窄症や椎間板ヘルニアなど従来完治不可能であり、全く歩けないか、歩けても短距離しか歩けない人が、痛み無く長距離歩行できるようになり、しかも従来の手、腕、脇を使う歩行器と異なり、手、腕、脇が自由に使え、しかも病院内や自宅内だけでなく、道路や屋外でも使用でき、また車椅子より車を少なくすることができ、コンパクトなので車に積んだり、輸送でき、従来の車椅子と異なり、介添えが不要であり、自分の足が歩けるので脚のポンプ作用により身体の血流がよくなり、本人が健康にもなり、活動の分野を広げることが可能となる画期的な発明である。   According to the present invention, a person who cannot be completely cured, such as back canal stenosis or intervertebral disk herniation, can walk at all, or can walk only a short distance, and can walk long distances without pain. Unlike a walker that uses hands, arms, and arms, hands, arms, and arms can be used freely, and it can be used not only in hospitals and homes, but also on roads and outdoors. Because it is compact, it can be loaded in a car or transported, unlike conventional wheelchairs, no assistance is required, and you can walk your feet, so the pumping action of the legs improves the blood flow of the body, the person is healthy, and the activity This is an epoch-making invention that can expand the field.

=I−aL L=bV
The present inventor has developed local infiltration, epidural, nerve root, block injection to the facet joint, PT muscle injection, sacroiliac joint adjustment, manipulative method, abdominal muscles for back pain such as back canal stenosis and intervertebral disc herniation All known treatments such as massage and taping were tested, but all were not effective.
Thus, the present invention has experimented with various new methods over the years. The present inventor has found that walking in the water eliminates back pain and can be walked.
The following equation is theorized by the present inventor.
I F = I O -aL L = bV
Here, IF is the current pain, IO is the original pain, a and b are coefficients, L is the buoyancy of water, and V is the volume of the body above the pain source such as a shin. The inventor walks the investigator in the water tank 51 as shown in FIG. 1, changes the depth D of the water 52 to various depths, causes the pedestrian 53 to walk with a cranial nerve pain meter 54, and moves the water depth D. Data was collected by repeating the experiment to change the. The water depth D was gradually reduced from 1.6 meters, and even at 1 meter, the cranial nerve pain meter did not respond, but it reacted when the water surface was below the waist position of the pathogen. When using a conventional walker, it is grasped by a hand or arm and supported by a shoulder, but the present inventor has discovered that the fulcrum may be near the lower waist. This was a great discovery that freed both hands, arms and sides. The first embodiment of the present invention is to walk while supporting the waist and the like with the buoyancy of water at the position of the water surface at a depth greater than the pain point.
Therefore, the inventor has invented a walker that can walk without pain while supporting the body by fixing the vicinity of the waist with a belt 1 as shown in Example 2 of FIG. In FIG. 2, 1 is a belt wound around the waist and supported by a lower chassis 5. A shaft 2 attached to the belt 1 in the vertical direction is fixed to a chassis (frame) 5. 3 is a directional front wheel attached to the front of the chassis 5, and 4 is a directional rear wheel attached to the rear of the chassis 5. A pedestrian can walk in any desired direction without pain in the lower back or legs using such a walker. A person's weight is supported by a chassis 5 and cars 3 and 4 via a shaft 2. Therefore, you can walk without applying the load from the waist to the spine, hip joint and knee.
FIG. 3 shows a third embodiment of the present invention. A patch 12 having a vertical cylindrical hole 13 is sewn to the left and right of the waist belt 10, and vertical support rods 8 'and 9' are inserted and fixed. A Velcro positive 10a and a Velcro negative 10b are attached. These are wound around the belly and firmly attached to the human body 53 to walk. The portions 8 'and 9' are narrower than the shafts 8 and 9, and the vertical support rods 8 and 9 are attached to the shafts 8 'and 9' so that they can be expanded and contracted. The height of the dots can be adjusted in the vertical direction. The vertical support bars 8 and 9 are fixed to the frame 14, respectively. The 8 'and 9' swings around the eight axes intersect the 8 'and 9' vertical bars, making it suitable for various body sizes.
The frame 14 is provided with directional front wheels 16 and 17 and a directional rear wheel 15. Here, as specific dimensions, the waist width W is about 330 mm, the length B of the seam allowance of the belt 10 is about 150 mm, and the height D from the pedestrian's foot to the waist is about 1035 mm. The frame frame is U-shaped as shown in the figure, and the width R of the frame frame is about 500 mm and the length direction S is about 700 mm. The pedestrian wraps the belt 10 around his waist and walks in the direction of the thick arrow. The weight of the pedestrian does not sit on the waist, but is supported by the frame 14 and the cars 15 and 16 via the shafts 8 'and 9' and the vertical support rods 8 and 9. Pedestrians can freely walk long distances without suffering from back pain.
FIG. 4 shows a fourth embodiment of the present invention in which a directional mechanism is attached to a chair supporting the vicinity of the waist. The point different from a general wheelchair is that the shape and structure of a seating surface where the lower limbs can move freely back and forth as indicated by the arrow, and the height of the sitting chair that can move up and down is adjusted to the height that can be kicked with the foot 24. While kicking with your feet, you can go in the direction you want with the directional wheels 20, 21 (not shown) and 22. Directional wheels 20 and 21 are attached in the forward direction, and a directionable wheel 22 is attached in the rear direction. It has the effect of making a car smaller than a wheelchair. +
Reference numeral 28 denotes a frame to which the directional universal wheels 20 to 22 are attached, and the telescopic vertical support rods 23 and 23 'are also attached to the frame 28. Reference numerals 23 and 23 ′ denote shafts that support the seat surface 25 of the chair. 26 is a backrest, 27 is a frame, and 25 is a seating surface. The seating surface 25 can be adjusted with an angle adjusting joint 24. The leg has a structure that has a space that prevents the movement of the leg from being caught by surrounding structures and allows a foot (in the direction of the arrow in the figure). The seat surface is easy to kick when tilted horizontally or slightly forward. The front and rear width of the seat is designed to be slightly narrow. And, since it is a structure that can advance or retreat back and forth by yourself, strengthening with a leg with pumping action improves the blood flow of the body and makes it healthy, and the device of the present invention does not require an attendant .
図5は本発明の第5の実施例であり、丸い座30に直角に伸縮軸31,32を固着してある。伸縮軸31はシャフト32に挿入されている。そして、その人の脚の長さに合わせ、軸を矢印方向に伸縮して軸長を合わせ固定具29で固定する。後輪36は軸32の先端に設ける。前輪34は肢33の先に設け、方向は自在とする。一肢33一輪34とせず前輪34,35(図示せず)34,35(図示せず)の二輪としてもよい。一肢33一輪34とせずとしてもよい。丸い座30を伸縮軸31に固着し、これにより座30を傾ける調整関節が不要になり、構造が簡単、コストダウンとなる。歩行者は、座30にお尻を乗せて、所定の方向に歩行することができる。この場合において、体重は軸31と32,33にかかるので、脚や腰痛部分に荷重がかからなくなる。従って、腰痛が起こることなく長距離歩行することができる。なお、A点は座30と伸縮軸31との溶接部分、B点はシャフト32と支持棒33との溶接部分であるが、B点に関節を設けて肢33,前輪34を矢印方向に折り畳むようにするとコンパクトになり、携帯、輸送、格納に便利となる。     FIG. 5 shows a fifth embodiment of the present invention, in which telescopic shafts 31 and 32 are fixed to a round seat 30 at a right angle. The telescopic shaft 31 is inserted into the shaft 32. Then, according to the length of the person's leg, the shaft is expanded and contracted in the direction of the arrow, the shaft length is adjusted, and the fixture 29 is fixed. The rear wheel 36 is provided at the tip of the shaft 32. The front wheel 34 is provided at the tip of the limb 33, and the direction can be freely set. Instead of the one limb 33 and the one wheel 34, the front wheels 34 and 35 (not shown) 34 and 35 (not shown) may be used. One limb 33 and one wheel 34 may be omitted. Since the round seat 30 is fixed to the telescopic shaft 31, an adjustment joint for tilting the seat 30 is unnecessary, and the structure is simple and the cost is reduced. A pedestrian can walk in a predetermined direction with his buttocks on the seat 30. In this case, since the weight is applied to the shafts 31, 32, and 33, no load is applied to the leg and the back pain portion. Therefore, it is possible to walk for a long distance without causing back pain. Note that point A is a welded portion between the seat 30 and the telescopic shaft 31, and point B is a welded portion between the shaft 32 and the support rod 33. A joint is provided at the point B and the limb 33 and the front wheel 34 are folded in the direction of the arrow. This makes it compact and convenient for carrying, transporting and storing.
FIG. 6 shows a sixth embodiment of the present invention. By using an off-the-shelf bicycle saddle 40, sitting on the waist is good, and the degree of freedom to move the legs back and forth is great while sitting, so it is easy to walk and is inexpensive because it is a mass-produced product. It becomes. 46 and 48 are front legs, and 43 is a rear leg (main axis). One front leg may be used and one wheel may be used. 44 is a rearward free wheel provided at the front end of the main shaft 43, and 47 and 49 are front freewheels provided at the front end of the front legs 46 and 48, respectively. The shaft 41 is fixed with the length fixing screw 42, and the length is adjusted. This embodiment is narrow, lightweight and inexpensive, can be used on narrow roads, and can be compact and convenient for portable storage by folding the front legs 46 and 48 in the direction of the arrow with the folding joint 45. .
The main shaft 43 may be inclined or substantially vertical, and the saddle angle is set to an optimum value so that it is easy to walk while sitting at the angle adjusting joint 50 under the saddle. Since the waist rides on the saddle and both sides of the saddle are sandwiched between the legs, it is possible to walk with the waist fixed as in the principle of Fig. 2.
FIG. 7 is a diagram showing a seventh embodiment of the present invention. The same components as those in FIG. 6 are denoted by the same reference numerals. As can be seen by comparing FIG. 6 and FIG. 7, the embodiment of FIG. 7 has only two legs 43 and 46. Therefore, in order to prevent the walker from falling down, as shown in (B), two directional universal wheels attached to each leg are provided so that the walker does not fall down. In the figure, directional wheels 55a and 55b are attached to the leg 43, and directional wheels 56a and 56b are attached to the leg 44.
In addition to the above, various modifications can be considered in the present invention, all of which are included in the present invention.
本発明はあらゆる種類の腰痛持ち、股関節痛、膝関節痛等の人に等しく適用することができる。   The present invention is equally applicable to people with all kinds of back pain, hip pain, knee pain and the like.
