Resumen:
Un centro de investigación checo ha desarrollado un nuevo tipo de embarcación accionada por el hombre hecha de aleación de aluminio para deportes acuáticos en aguas tranquilas, como embalses y lagos. La embarcación está equipada con un sistema oscilante especial ergonómicamente adaptado para utilizar todos los músculos del cuerpo (piernas, brazos, abdominales y espalda) y generar propulsión. El movimiento oscilante del mecanismo de propulsión se transmite a componentes propulsores subacuáticos conectados al mecanismo de dirección, que controla el ángulo de inclinación. Se buscan fabricantes de embarcaciones pequeñas con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia.

New type of human-powered vessel for water sport activities
Summary:
A Czech research centre has developed a new type of human-powered vessel for water sport activities in still water bodies (e.g. reservoirs or lakes). The developed vessel is equipped with a special oscillating and wobbling system which is ergonomically tailored to use all human body muscles (leg, arm, abdominal, back) to generate propulsion. The research centre is looking for companies manufacturing small vessels interested in license agreement.
Description:
Human-powered transport is the transport of persons using human muscle power. There are three types of traditional human-powered vehicles - land (e.g. bicycles, skateboards, roller skates), aircraft (e.g. gliders, balloons) and watercraft (e.g. canoes, rowing boats). Most of the traditional human-powered vehicles uses only certain muscle group, for example bicyclists use much more leg muscles than arm muscles. Therefore human body muscles are unequally loaded and developed.

The Czech research centre has developed new type of human-powered vessel from aluminium alloy for water sports activities in still water bodies such as reservoirs or lakes. The motion of the vessel is generated by a special oscillating and wobbling system which is ergonomically tailored to use all human body muscles (leg, arm, abdominal, back). The oscillating and wobbling motion of the propulsion mechanism is transmitted to underwater propelling elements connected to the steering mechanism which controls tilt angle. The propelling element tilt angle is determined by the forward and backward movement of the steering rod mounted on the front part of the vessel. The tilt system also ensures the braking function. The developed vessel presents very effective cardio exercise for people of all ages and even for persons with certain disabilities.

The research centre is looking for companies manufacturing small vessels interested in manufacturing of new type of human-powered vessel and introducing it to the market. Prototype of the vessel is available for demonstration. Completion of final technical and design solution is expected from partner sought. Specification of license agreement (licensing fees, etc.) will be negotiated.
Advantages and Innovations:
In comparison with traditional human-powered vehicles, developed vessel uses all human body muscles (leg, arm, abdominal, back). Therefore human body muscles are equally loaded and developed.
Stage of Development:
Prototype available for demonstration
IPs:
Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
Czech patent for kinematic transfer of wobble movement
