Description

Garment with seamless transitions Description The present invention relates to a garment comprising at least a portion (A) and at least a portion (B). The two sections (A) and (B) differ in their Elastofaser portion, preferably in its Spandex content, wherein the content Elastofaser in section (A) is always greater than the proportion Elastofaser-in section (B) and the transitions from section (A) to section (B) at least 75% are seamlessly (based on the total length of all transitions). The garments according to the invention may also be a plurality of sections (A) and / or (B) include which may be the same or different with respect to the Elastofaser fraction and / or the yarn used. Moreover, garments of the invention may also comprise portions which have no Elastofaser portion or less than 1% elastofibers. The inventive garments can be either garments for the upper body (a person) as an undershirt or a sports shirt, and make a garment for the lower body, such as stockings or cycling shorts, act. The garments are particularly suitable for use in sports, leisure area and as a (professional) work clothing, for example, for the construction sector.

DE-A 10 2005 032 917 relates to a functional clothing, consisting of five different portions, which in turn are formed of different materials. The respective sections 1 to 5 can thereby also occur more than once in the functional clothing. The five sections are matched to the load zones of the body, the combination of these portions allows the same time an unrestricted freedom of movement. The individual sections are connected to each other usually by sutures. The first section is a mesh knit (3), the second portion comprises a windproof and waterproof membrane (4), the third portion is also a wind- and waterproof membrane (5), which may optionally be ribbed, the fourth section is a climate zone (6) and the fifth portion (7) is knitted around or seamlessly (seamless) and has a high elasticity. In the functional clothes may be a garment for the upper body, such as a long sleeve, and / or a garment for the lower body, such as a pair of pants, act. However, DE-A 10 2005 032 917 gives no indication of whether elastofibers have been used for the individual sections of functional clothing. DE-U 2010 002 832 relates to a compression garment to be worn on the skin, which consists of elastically resilient material being provided in the compression garment regions, means for compression. The compression garment is illustrated in this document based on stockings. The means used for the compression regions, are typically formed by webs which are arranged on the side facing the skin side of the compression garment, wherein an increase in the thickness of the material is caused by the webs. The webs may be spirally or drop-shaped, they may be aligned in the horizontal direction or in vertical direction, can also have interruptions in the direction corresponding to the respective webs. Due to the webs to increase the thickness of the material is caused, the webs is made principally of the same material as the rest of (tissue) region of the compression garment. The webs are achieved by using yarns having a larger diameter or by an accumulation of threads, thereby increasing the thickness of the material is effected. (Ie the basic fabric of the garment) the areas between the ridges has no compression effect. Through the alternating use of fabric strips with or without compression effect a region-wise compression is caused.

DE-U 20 2010 006 499 relates to a garment that is made from at least one yarn having heat conductive properties. By this garment the function of a heating, which is located in an overhead garment should not be adversely affected. Rather, the use of the heat-conductive yarn is intended to be forwarded without loss of heat radiated from the heater from the overlying piece of clothing on the body, thereby providing a significantly better heat transfer takes place. For the same performance arises by the carrier of the garment significantly earlier heat effect a. In the single embodiment of DE-U 20 2010 006 499, there is a heat-conducting yarn made of polyamide. The polyamide may in turn have a thermally conductive coating or energy-storing materials, particularly paraffin, may be incorporated into the polyamide.

WO 2002/34179 relates to a compressive composite elastic stocking (compression stocking) of hosiery such as stockings, tights, socks, etc., comprising a closed tip and with an open top. The compression stocking may be more easily tightened and consists of at least two parts which are capable of realizing a stocking in a single piece with areas when applied to a leg which can provide a predetermined compression. The two parts are tubular and comprise end pieces which face in use today and have a degree of compression which is about half that of the remaining part of the two parts, the ends restore the unit of the compression stocking with a mutual overlap. The compression stocking may be made of different natural fibers, synthetic fibers or synthetic fibers. EP-B 2,070,495 relates to an orthopedic support device for a human back and lumbar region having a Lumbaibandage and with a Trägergurtanordnung, which comprises at least one dorsal strap section and two guided over shoulder areas on tape and which is connected to a Lumbaibandage, wherein at least one strap section a is associated with elastic yielding force limitation part. As can be seen from the figures, the support means on the front, the back and the two sides of the human body extends (torso). However, no disclosure is contained in this document, the material from which the support device is made or whether the supporting device may also include portions which are made from elastofibers.

US-A 2013/0019371 discloses support and compression garments, preferably pants that cause while wearing the human body, a support and compression effect, particularly in sports, during pregnancy or during a recovery process of injuries. This support and compression garments comprise at least one support and compression zone for at least a selected region of the human body and at least one support and compression member which is connected with the support and compression zone, thereby providing increased support and compression effect is to be elicited. The support and compression member may be constructed as a belt, and is preferably mounted on the rear portion of the corresponding back-up or compression pants. If a high support and compression effect is desired, the appropriate fiber material of the support and compression zone in each garment has a composition of about 65% polyamide, 25% Spantex (ie elastane) and 10% polyester (weight percent). However, if only a moderate or light support and compression effect desired, the composition of the material of the support and compression zone in the respective garment is changed to about 70% polyamide, 15% Spantex and 15% polyester. However, US-A 2013/0019371 does not disclose garments which have two different sections with special Elastofaser shares and the transitions between the individual sections can be seamless.

US-A 6,047,406 discloses so-called "energy expenditure garments", which are made of fibers of different density and have a plurality of zones having different resistance characteristics (elasticity). In this case, fibers / filaments are connected by different elasticity seamlessly to each other. This means that the elasticity values ​​of the different areas (zones) merge fluently, wherein the individual zones are formed by a warp knitting process. Thus, in US-a 6,047,406 specific embodiments disclosed in which individual areas accounted for 27% of nylon (polyamide), or 27% of a mixture of nylon and Lycra (ie elastane) have. in a second zone of the corresponding material has 18% of nylon or 18% of a mixture of nylon and lycra. in other words, the garments described in US-a 6,047,406 5 are intended that a man while wearing these garments Step Example lsweise must apply during exercise, an increased expenditure of force (overcoming the resistance), whereby the respective parts of the body can be trained accordingly and / or a swinging or bending of arms, legs or the (rest of) the body is inhibited. However, US-A 6,047,406 10 does not disclose that in the respective zones, the corresponding portion of polyamide can be completely replaced by a Elastofaser.

US-A 5,978,966 discloses analogous garments as described above for US-A 6,047,406. However the garments are in accordance

15 US-A 5,978,966 not made seamlessly. In turn, the process disclosed in US-A 5,978,966 concrete embodiments may have areas of different proportions (27, or 18% of nylon or of a corresponding mixture of nylon and Lycra) are made. Further embodiments are disclosed in this document, in which the corresponding area information is

20 only relate to Lycra. The corresponding regions in a proportion of 18 or 27% nylon and / or Lycra are in these garments preferably in the leg and / or arm region. In addition, these garments may also comprise zones having no elasticity, so in which adjusts no training effect.

The the present object underlying the invention is to provide actuating averaging of a new garment (for different areas of the body of a human being), which is preferably used in the sports sector, in the leisure sector and also as working clothes, for example in the construction sector (worn) 30 can.

The object is achieved by a garment comprising at least a portion (A) and at least a portion (B), characterized in that

35 i) of the section (A) has a Elastofaser proportion from 12 to 100%,

ii) the portion (B) has a Elastofaser content of 1 to 40%, wherein the Elastofaser portion in section (A) is always greater than the Elastofaser portion in section (B) and the transition from section (A) by section (B) of at least 40 75% are seamlessly (based on the total length of all transitions). Since clothing according to the invention are partially or even completely made seamless, because in particular the transition from section (A) to section (B) at least 75%, preferably completely, are seamless, several advantages can be found according to the invention. Firstly in the comfort can be increased. Further, each seam is counterproductive to the compression properties. This effect is stronger the further the corresponding seam away from the human heart. Consequently, the compression characteristics are optimized in the novel garments. Further, garments of the invention are adapted advantageously to the load zone as well as the skeletal system and the muscles of the human body. The combination of the portions (A) and (B) at the same time allows a muscular support, partial muscle compression and unrestricted movement. Further, in order to ensure the best comfort, is preferably specifically brought one for use on the particular application, and in particular sport driving, in conjunction with the human body adapted to the size measurement chart.

The information contained in the inventive garments sections (A), a reinforcement zone and / or support zone is provided superficially. In this way, an optimal posture of the human body can be achieved with the proposed activity, for example in endurance sports or when performing skilled jobs. This affects, for example, when playing sports positively to the performance, because you can train more effectively. Both in sports and in craft activities and activity-related pain, especially back pain, especially in garments for the upper body can also be alleviated. This is particularly the case when (A) extending in a garment for the upper body section integrally via the front, rear and the two sides of the body section of the garment, preferably in the form of a loop-shaped belt, in particular, the loop-shaped belt extending wholly or partly over the shoulder regions and / or in the region of the trapezius muscle.

As by the portion (B) the designated area of ​​the garment according to the invention a compression in the human body is achieved superficially. In this way, the muscles is given stability and / or achieves an activation of the venous return. This is particularly the case when the portion (B) extends wholly or partially over the provided for the extremities of the human body portions of the respective garment, ie in particular the arm or leg portions of the respective garment. The proportion of elastofibers in section (B) depends on the type of application of the garment, the degree of compression can be according to the invention thus also metered, which constitutes a further advantage of the present invention. For example, in a vest or garment for the leisure sector a lesser degree of compression is required or desirable as compared to a sports shirt. in turn, the reinforcing effect of the portion (A) formed superficially by the functional arrangement and / or the dimensional stability of the portion (A) in the X direction. Here, the section (A) has preferably at least 5% higher percentage of elastofibers than the portion (B). The degree of amplification can thus be dosed according to the invention for the desired application of the corresponding garment.

Preferably garments according to the invention have in addition to the sections (A) and (B) other sections / zones. It may, for example, so-called ventilation zones or areas act that ostensibly serve to improve the climate of the human body at the desired activity.

The present invention provides garments are still provided, for example, for the upper body, especially sports shirts, which provide an optimum welding dissipation in the most heavily polluted areas, help all claimed in the strength and endurance sports, as well as craft activities muscles by compression to more power and simultaneously incorporated reinforcement zones ensure optimal posture during the corresponding operation.

In the present invention, spandex and analogous elastofibers as Elastodien or rubber fibers made of natural rubber, the term "elastofibers" understood. In Elastodien is fibers which are made of synthetic polyisoprene or of high polymers obtained by polymerization of one or more dienes, possibly are formed with the addition of one or more vinyl monomers. Preferably, the present invention as described below Elastofaser the elastane is known to the skilled man is in sections (a) and (B) in the appropriate proportions in the context used.

In the present invention the following, the term "elastane" is understood: Elastan, which is also referred to as "elastane" or in the English language as "spandex" is a Elastofaser which is extremely stretchable (up to 700%), a good tensile strength (8 to 16 Rkm), a low abrasion resistance, a good dyeability as well as good washability and having largely returns upon release of the tensile force to the original state. This is to fibers made from high polymers that are at least 85 wt .-% consist of segmented polyurethane. preferably, this is a block copolymer of the constituents of polyurethane and polyethylene glycol elastane preferably has an extensibility of at least 500%. for completeness, it is noted. that no elastofibers polyamides such as nylon / Perlon in the sense represent the present invention. This is particularly due to the fact that such poly amides do not have the above-described unique characteristics of Elastofaser, especially spandex, such as extreme extensibility or good tear resistance, have. As described below but shown, such polyamides may be contained in addition to a Elastofaser in a yarn, in particular a core yarn, which are used for the production of the sections (A) and / or (B).

In the present invention, the term "seamless" (seamless) and the term "seamless transition" is understood the following and by way of example with reference to a transition between a portion (A) and a portion (B) shows, the portion (A) and the portion (B) the characteristics specified in the following text (Elastofaser content etc.) have. At the boundary portions (edges) of the sections (A) and (B), the respective yarns are directly connected together, for example by knitting, weaving, knitting, or other techniques. In the corresponding technique, the yarn section (A) simply by the yarn of the portion (B) is replaced at the desired location and the procedure continued analogously. Preferably, the connecting the respective yarns are the machine-level, it may optionally also take place by hand. Preferably, bonding occurs during the corresponding operation step (for example, knitting) without any additional step or a step interruption of the machining step. Alternatively, already (largely) finished (partial) pieces of the two sections (A) and (B) can be connected to each other by using the appropriate yarns.

Below garments to the invention with seamless transitions are characterized.

The present invention basically includes all garments that can carry a person. The garments of the invention may be suitable for the lower body and / or the upper body of a man. A Radlerhose is an example of a garment for the lower body of a person, a sports shirt or a vest are examples of a garment for the upper body of a person. Are conceivable within the scope of the present invention but also garments that cover both the lower body and the upper body of a person, such as a diving suit or a protective suit. The lower body in the sense of the present invention includes the sub-part of the human body (torso), so the area of ​​the lumbar region or below the belt, as well as the legs and optionally feet. For example, but can also be part of areas of a garment according to the invention for the lower body, in particular a pair of trousers, extend to areas above the lumbar region of the human body when worn on the human body.

The torso according to the present invention comprises the human torso (trunk) above the lumbar region and above the belt line, as well as the arms. However, neck and head and hands are not part of the upper body for the purposes of the present invention. Nonetheless, portions of the garments according to the invention can extend to the upper body when worn on the human body to adjacent body parts, for example in the form of a (shirt-) collar for the neck section or a hood over the head area.

Preferably, the garment is a sock, tights, pants, a pair of underpants, a cyclist trousers, a jogging or running shorts, a T-shirt, a sweater, a sports shirt, T-shirt or a sweater or any other garment that can be worn snugly can.

Preferred garment of the present invention is a garment for the upper body, more preferably the garment is a vest, a sweater, a sport shirt, T-shirt, sweatshirt or other garment that is worn tightly, for example, a tank top. The garment may be short sleeves or long sleeves, and in particular the garment is a short-sleeved or long sleeved sports shirt. Workout is also meant a first layer apparel in the present invention. Furthermore, it is preferable in the invention that it is a garment which is applied directly to the body, preferably on the upper body, or near the body, preferably in the upper body close worn.

The terms "directly on the body", "directly on the upper body", "near the body" or "in close upper body" refer to the intended use and are illustrated below for a garment to the upper body. The terms "directly to the upper body" or "near the body" refer to the intended use. "Directly on the upper body" for example, is worn an undershirt when used as intended. A sports shirt or a T-shirt on the one hand be worn on the upper body, on the other hand it is worn close to the body, if for example an undershirt is attracted less. In theory, a jacket can be worn on the upper body, but this does not correspond to the intended use for the purposes of the present invention, because usually the jacket makes up the outermost layer of clothing. meaning contemporary also applies to items of clothing for the lower body, such as a cycling shorts or underpants.

The garment according to the invention comprises at least a portion (A) and at least a portion (B). Provided that a plurality of sections (A) and / or (B), the individual sections may be the same or different (according to their definitions below). A garment comprising, for example, three sections (A) and two portions (B) may, for example, have three different sections (A), which differ in terms of the Elastofaser moiety, or it may be contained (A), three equal portions, which are spatially separated from each other, but are prepared with the same Elastofaser portion. For the section (B) point Contemporary applies. Preferably, in sections (A) and (B), the respective elastofibers elastane.

According to the invention preferably in the respective sections (according to the following definitions) (A) and (B) respectively required Elastofaser portion, preferably the elastane content adjusted by using yarns having a corresponding Elastofaser moiety, preferably a Spandex comprise proportion. This can be done in the corresponding portion by using a single yarn, but it can also be used two or more yarns of different types and / or different Elastofaser portion. The amount of each yarn with a defined Elastofaser portion is adjusted or selected that the Elastofaser proportions of the respective section refer to the complete each portion to be observed.

For example, if a portion (A) with a Elastofaser content of 30%, this can be achieved first of all that in the complete portion (A), a single yarn is used with a Elastofaser content of 30%. It is also conceivable that this two different yarns are used, for example, have a Elastofaser content of 20% and 37%. The two above-mentioned yarns must then be used in such amounts consequently that the Elastofaser proportion based on the entire section (A) has the desired value of 30%. For the portions (B) analogous considerations as have been explained above by way of example for a section (A), wherein apply Elastofaser-play based on the considered portion (B) according to the following quantities are choose. Both for a portion (A) as a portion and (B), it is also conceivable that each yarns are used, which have no Elastofaser portion or a Elastofaser content of <1%. Also in this case the constellation set forth above are, after which the Elastofaser proportions of the other yarns are adjusted accordingly applies to come to the desired Elastofaser content for the corresponding entire section (A) or (B). As yarns, all known to the person skilled yarns can in principle be used, which have totally or partially elastofibers, especially spandex, or in the event that a elastofaserfreies yarn is to be additionally incorporated, such yarns that can be processed together with the elastofaserhaltigen yarns. These are, for example, twist yarns, staple fiber yarns or spun yarns of natural or synthetic fibers. These yarns also include the so-called core yarns (core yarns) in which the corresponding Elastofaser is arranged in the center of the respective yarn and other materials, which are arranged around the corresponding Elastofaser.

Embodiment 1

The embodiment 1 in the form of a long-sleeved shirts Sport is shown in Figures 1 to 3 and will be described in detail below. In the figures, the abbreviation "A" for a portion (A), for the abbreviations "B" and "C" is true sense to the Invention. In Embodiment 1, all transitions of section (A) to the respective sections (B) preferably completely seamlessly , preferably also the corresponding transitions of section (A) and the portions (B) to the respective sections (C) completely seamless. If not all transitions from section (A) of the respective sections (B) are completely seamless, are at least 90% (based on the total length of all transitions) the transition from section (A) to portion (B) seamlessly. meaning to the Invention also applies to the corresponding transitions to the respective sections (C): FIG.

Fig. 1: a view of the long-sleeved shirts Sport from the front

FIG. 2 shows the view of illustrated in FIG long-sleeved shirts Sport 1 from behind.

FIG. 3 shows the view from one of the two sides (with elevated arm) of the shown in Figure 1 long-sleeved sport shirts.

The shoulder / back muscle plays a central role in the posture as a holding and stabilizing muscles. During the weight and fitness training as well as in everyday situations a proper posture is equivalent to the reduction of the forces acting on the spine energy. Moreover, it is absolutely necessary in most sports that the shoulder apparatus and the body are not restricted in their mobility, to perform movements in its entirety.

Due to the fact described above, the portion (A) formed (incorporated therein and in the long-sleeved sports shirt) in the embodiment by a coherent, extending over the front side, the back side and the two Seitabschnitte wide belt system to support the orthopedic correct posture during exercise , The harness preferably has an uninterrupted loop shape with intersecting webs in the region of the trapezius muscle.

The portion (A) of the embodiment has a Elastofaser moiety, preferably an elastane content from 21 to 40%, preferably from 28 to 40%, with the Elastofaser portion in section (A) is always greater than the Elastofaser content in in section (B). Preferably, the portion (A) has an at least 5%, more preferably at least 10% higher Elastofaser content than at least one, preferably all of the sections as (B).

The portion (A) is preferably stretchable only in the Y direction. In the X direction it is dimensionally stable. The extensibility is between 20% and 70%, depending on the intended use of the garment. The one-dimensional elasticity allows a resultant tensile force in the belt system, which causes the above-described requirements. The arrangement of the looped belt system allows both the unrestricted mobility of the upper body apparatus and the support of the shoulder / back muscles so as to improve performance and prevent injury. This is ensured by the straightening of the upper body. We also facilitated by the support of the secondary respiratory muscles of the respiratory process and therefore energetically favored. In order to avoid pressure points on the spine, the course of the belt system is not arranged on the spine preferably along, however. The horizontal legs of the harness in the upper and lower back are used to shape stability of the system. The number of modules is variable depending on requirements. In the chest and abdomen area, the webs of the belt system run so that they do not impair the straightening of the upper body and thus any type of breathing.

The long-sleeved sports shirt also includes several compression zones. These are preferably in the range of the arms, the abdomen starting dorsi below the lowest rib, and on both sides of the back in the region of the latissimus. This therefore is a plurality of sections (B) having a Elastofaser component, preferably an elastane content of preferably 18 to 25%. The portions (B) are stretchable in the X and Y directions. By the degree of elasticity of the compression ratio is determined. The oval section at the upper end of Figure 1 which extends over the central portion (B) and right and left by a respective portion (A), represents the head or neck opening of the long-sleeved sport shirts.

The long sleeve sports shirt is partially multi-section for air-conditioning (C) is provided. The portion (C) may be made of mesh knit or grobgestricktem or kettengewirktem tissue. It is provided in the area of ​​Armachseln, chest and center back. It covers the skin only partially, in order to ensure optimal air circulation. It is preferably made of a low friction yarn in order to reduce the risk of infections caused by friction and abrasions skin irritation. In addition, the yarn can be refined to inhibit odor-causing bacteria. One such additive is conceivable also in the portions (A) and (B).
