Title
(EN) LOAD DISTRIBUTION DEVICE FOR IMPROVING THE MOBILITY OF THE CENTER OF MASS OF A USER DURING COMPLEX MOTIONS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE RÉPARTITION DE CHARGE POUR AMÉLIORER LA MOBILITÉ DU CENTRE DE MASSE D'UN UTILISATEUR LORS DE MOUVEMENTS COMPLEXES
Abstract
(EN) A load distribution device for transferring musculoskeletal stress from joints to body segments of the lower extremities of a user. The device includes actuation of the hips and knees that follows and assists the user's movement in a complimentary way. The complimentary assistance and load distribution device combine to reduce the loading on the user's joints and increase the user's strength. By assisting the user's hip and/or knees as needed, the device allows the user to achieve improved strength, reduces the metabolic requirements for motion, and increases comfort during physical activity. The load distribution device follows the user's limbs through the full joint range of motion and can be used in both passive and active modes.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de répartition de charge pour transférer une contrainte musculo-squelettique d'une articulations vers des segments corporels des extrémités inférieures d'un utilisateur. Le dispositif comprend l'actionnement des hanches et des genoux qui suivent et aident le mouvement de l'utilisateur d'une manière complémentaire. L'aide complémentaire et le dispositif de répartition de charge se combinent pour réduire la charge sur les articulations de l'utilisateur et augmenter la résistance de l'utilisateur. En aidant les hanches et/ou les genoux de l'utilisateur selon les besoins, le dispositif permet à l'utilisateur d'obtenir une force améliorée, réduit les exigences métaboliques pour le mouvement, et augmente le confort au cours de l'activité physique. Le dispositif de répartition de charge suit les membres de l'utilisateur par l'intermédiaire de la plage de mouvement d'articulation complète et peut être utilisé à la fois dans des modes passifs et actifs.
