Abstract

A description is given of a grip with ergonomic depressions for fingers (1 - 5), on one side for the index finger (1) and the middle finger (2), possibly the ring finger (3) and the little finger (4), on the opposite side for the thumb (5), wherein the depressions for the index finger and the middle finger (the ring finger and the little finger) are arranged in the longitudinal direction of the grip and reach up to the rear end of the grip (6).

Description

HANDLE:

The present invention is ergonomically better handling of various devices; so, for example, as a handle for (wet) shaver (Figure 5) as a handle for surgical - or table - cutlery (Figure 6 embodiment than in diameter, optionally as a fork, spoon etc), etc writing utensils and tools; this taking into account the anatomy of the finger and thus a corresponding adjustment to the natural hand position in a straight extension of the fingers or hand.

In order to obtain a direct contact as well as good handling of the to be connected to the handle utensil (razor blade, hair brush, fork etc.) mediated representational handle (compared to long round handles approximately ranging razors) a more direct and safer handling; this is evident not least from the shortness of the handle and concentration of movements from the finger ends as opposed to a longer round handle, which is handled in such from across the shoulder, elbow and wrist.

fiddling is essentially reduced to movements in the wrist by representational handle - this in closer contact around the skin (eg shaving). Many hand positions in long-stemmed handles are similar to the attitude of a writing instrument, Sohin by changing the angle between the extension of the fingers and the handle and implement. By objectively new handle a direct and straight line force transfer from the wrist to fingers is achieved (approximately to the skin); the rest (well) the impression of a safer and quieter operation, especially form fingers and handle a "unity" created especially due to the brevity and ergonomic training for the fingers as a result.

The invention is thus based on the object to design a handle of the type described in such a way that reduced by as opposed to conventional handles (about long circular handles to razors, cutlery etc.) design and indentations for fingers a more direct, more peaceful and safer handling (if these conditions reduction of slippage about - where long-handled as round bars to a greater degree) is reached. Representational handle can be equipped for the fingers with a rubber coating (such as toothbrushes) in the appropriate wells, which additionally also contributes to a safer handling. The handle is optional from all materials (plastics, metals, natural fibers (wood), stone, clay, etc.) with the possibility of simultaneous use of different materials for the production and design of the handle.

In the drawings, the subject invention is shown, for example. There is shown in FIGS 1 to 4 subject touch.:

Fig.l: view obliquely from above / substantially corresponds to FIG. 3.

Figure 2: Side view with recognizable location of the index (1) and middle finger (2) in

Longitudinal direction of the handle; Position of the thumb on the opposite side (5)

Figure 3: view obliquely from above with recognizable extending in the longitudinal direction of the handle grip for show (1) - means (2), ring (3) and little finger (4), wherein the troughs extend to the end of the handle (6).

Figure 4: View from below with recess for the thumb (5).

Fig. 5: handle in illustration as Shaver handle (razor cartridge (7))

Fig. 6: handle in view of a cutlery -Messer -Handle (knife blade (8)).

According to the illustrated embodiment, representational grip on a handle with more or less fingers can be represented.
