Resumen:
Un centro de investigación checo ha desarrollado un nuevo tipo de vehículo de aleación de aluminio accionado por el hombre y equipado con un sistema oscilante especial para actividades deportivas y para moverse por bosques o caminos asfaltados. Se trata de un vehículo ergonómico adaptado para utilizar todos los músculos del cuerpo (brazos, piernas, abdominales y espalda) y generar propulsión. El vehículo permite a personas de cualquier edad practicar ejercicio cardiovascular de forma efectiva, incluso a usuarios con cierta discapacidad. El centro de investigación busca empresas dedicadas a la fabricación de vehículos pequeños con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia.

Tittle:
New type of human-powered vehicle for sport activities and travelling along forest or paved roads
Summary:
A Czech research centre has developed a new type of human-powered vehicle for sport activities and travelling along forest or paved roads equipped with a special oscillating and wobbling system. This system 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 vehicles 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 a new type of human-powered vehicle from aluminium alloy for sport activities and travelling along forest or paved roads. The motion of the vehicle is generated by the special oscillating and wobbling system which is ergonomically tailored to use all human body muscles (leg, arm, abdominal, back). The vehicle consists of a fixed frame and an oscillating cradle. The oscillating and wobbling motions are transmitted to the rear wheel of the vehicle by chain transmission. The stabilizer of the oscillating motion is a torsion bar disposed in the axis of the oscillating cradle. The range of oscillating angle of the drive mechanism is limited by stoppers mounted on the vehicle frame. The driving of the vehicle is ensured by handlebar connected to the front wheels. The track of the vehicle is changed by turning of front wheels. The developed vehicle 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 vehicles interested in manufacturing of new type of human-powered vehicle and introducing it to the market. Prototype of the vehicle 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 vehicle 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
