  • Publication number: 20070167298
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an exercise device comprising an elongated body (2) intended to be rotated by a user about its longitudinal axis, the elongated body (2) being provided with two handles (4a, 4b) arranged at a distance from each other, which handles (4a, 4b) are arranged to surround the elongated body (2) along a respective part thereof and to extend essentially co-axially with the longitudinal axis of the elongated body. The elongated body (2) is at a central (6) located between the two handles (4a, 4b) provided with an attachment (7), to which a flexible and elongated traction transferring element (8), such as a rope, a cord, a chain, a band or the like, is attached or intended to be attached so as to make possible suspension of a weight on the elongated body (2) via said traction transferring element (8), said central part (6) being designed when to receive the traction transferring element (8) when this is wound about the elongated body (2) during a rotation thereof.

  • Patent number: 5458617
    Abstract: For applying traction to an arm or a leg, an elongated body of elastic fabric is provided, which has a plurality of evenly distributed pockets that are elongated transversally of the body. Thin lead strips fit in the pockets as stiffeners. Complementary hook and loop fasteners secure the device around the girth of the arm or leg, so that all of the limb is surrounded by stiffener strips. The inner face of the elastic fabric is provided with a layer of anti-slip material, such as foam rubber, which extends beyond the elastic fabric, both lengthwise and widthwise, of the device. By preference, the device is arcuate in plan and the pockets and stiffener strips correspondingly trapezoidally shaped, when intended to fit around the tapering part of a limb.
