Mark C. Termion (Winfield, IL), Zhi Lu (West Dundee, IL), Eric C. White (Streamwood, IL) and Douglas B. MacDonald (Des Plaines, IL) have emerged with a simple and effective rowing exercise machine, which has been awarded the US Patent 7,226,397 recently. According to anarticle in www.findthatpatent.com, the rowing exercise machine has a simple effective resistance mechanism, which replaces the resistive brakes typically used in the prior art. The resistance mechanism of the machine consists a first coupling between the first and second spaced disks, which prevent rotation with the help of a resiliently deformable as well as a tensionable spiral in between. The second coupling of the device comes between one of the disks and a user handle for resisting the concordant movement of the user on a seat along a track as well as the movement of the handle.
Securing sporting goods patents is an essential business strategy for SmartKnitACTIVE Athletic Socks. The socks are a great relief for athletes, helping prevention of blisters, controlling foot odor and reducing moisture as per an article released in www.send2press.com. Patented SmartKnitACTIVE socks come with one of the most innovative designs that eliminate all the damaging ridges, seams and especially blister-causing pressure points. It offers a perfectly unseamed and form-fitting design that prevents blisters. During the performances, the athlete’s feet sweats and are damped. The moisture in the socks causes blister-causing friction, odor and bacterial infection. The SmartKnitACTIVE socks have CoolMax (R) high-tech moisture wicking fibers that help to absorb moisture and ensure that the socks are dry. Further the X-STATIC(R) SmartKnitACTIVE socks have a layer of pure silver permanently bonded to its surface, which reduces odor causing bacteria and athlete’s foot fu
A motorized exercise bike invented by David H. (Lawrenceville, GA) has been granted US Patent 6,220,991. According to an article released in www.findthatpatent.com, the patented exercise bicycle is equipped with an electric motor has been designed for the elderly, infirm and the physically disabled. The exercising bicycle has “automatically reciprocating handlebars” and comes with a frame that has a fan blade type wheel attached onto it. The wheel has a pedal assembly linked to it, which enables the rotation of the pedal that eventually leads to the rotation of the wheel. The invention brings forth an exercise bicycle, which has an electric motor assembly for automatically enabling the rotation of a pedal assembly. A physically challenged person would be able to have a light, assisted workout with this motorized exercise bike. This patented motorized fitness equipment would help the weak patients with controlled workout without stressing the muscles beyond limits.
