Abstract

A remote control assembly for an exercising machine includes a body that has two sensor grips connected to two ends thereof and an receiving device is connected to the body. A control panel is located between the two sensor grips. A receiving device is connected to the display device so as to receive signals that are sent from the receiving device of the body. The status of the exercising machine can be adjusted by using the remote control assembly while operating the exercising machine.

Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    The present invention relates to a remote control device that is held by the user who is using an exercising machine so as to conveniently adjust the status of the exercising machine.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    A conventional exercising machine such as the exerciser bike is shown in FIGS. 1 and 2 and generally includes an h-shaped frame 10 and a seat 12 and a post 19 are respectively connected the frame 10. A handle is connected to a top of the post 19 and a display device 15 with an operation panel 16 is connected to the display device 15. A resistance device 11 is located in front of the seat 12 and includes a crank with pedals so that the user may sits in the seat 12 and operates the crank by feet. A cable 14 is received in two armrests 17 on two sides of the seat 12 and two sensor grips 13 are connected to the two armrests 17. A control unit 18 is connected to the display device 15 and receives signals from the cable 14 so as to display the data of the blood pressure, the number of pulse and/or other physical conditions of the user. The display device 15 also displays the status of the exercising machine that is operated by the user. However, when the user wants to adjust the status of the exercising machine such as the resistance of the resistance device 11, he or she has to stand up and operates the buttons on the panel 16 and this will stop the action of the users.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0003]
    In accordance with one aspect of the present invention, there is provided a remote control assembly for an exercising machine and comprises a body having two sensor grips connected to two ends thereof and a receiving device is connected to the body.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • [0015]
    Referring to FIGS. 3, 4, and 7, an exercising machine 20 includes a frame 23 and a seat 24 in which a user may sit and holds two armrests on two sides of the seat 24. An operation mechanism 21 is connected to in front of the seat 24 and a proper mechanism is received therein. A crank extends through a casing enclosing the mechanism and two pedals are connected to two ends of the crank such that the user may rotate the crank by his/her feet. A handle is connected to a post extending from the frame 23 and a display device 22 is connected to a top of the post. A receiving device 221 is connected to a lower edge of the display device 22 and faces the seat 24 of the exercising machine 20.
  • [0016]
    The remote control assembly of the present invention comprises a body 25 that has two sensor grips 251 connected to two ends thereof and an receiving device 250 is connected to the body 25. A control panel 252 is located between the two sensor grips 251 on the body 25 and a video device 253 is connected to the body 25.
  • [0017]
    The data that is detected by the sensor grips 251 can be sent to the receiving device 221 and displayed on the screen of the display device 22. If the user wants to adjust the status of the exercising machine, he or she simply operates the buttons on the control panel 252 and sends the instruction orders to the receiving device 221 to adjust the exercising machine without stopping the actions of exercising and standing up. The video device 253 provides an entertainment feature for the users. FIG. 5 shows that the display device that was installed on the exercising machine 20 can be installed to the body 25 as shown and a receiving/emitting device 211 is connected to the operation mechanism 21. An emitting/receiving device 250′ is connected to the body 25 so that the exercising machine and the remote control assembly may mutual communicate with each other as shown in FIG. 8.
  • [0018]
    [0018]FIGS. 9 and 10 show that the remote control assembly may be used with exercising bike and stepping exerciser.
  • [0019]
    While we have shown and described the embodiment in accordance with the present invention, it should be clear to those skilled in the art that further embodiments may be made without departing from the scope of the present invention.
