  • Patent number: 11180057
    Abstract: Provided is a seatback rotating device used for a vehicle seat. The seatback rotating device includes an electric motor, an action mechanism, a rotor, and an abutment target portion. In the seatback rotating device, when s seatback of the vehicle sat is placed in a first standing position, the rotor is positioned in a standby state that creates a gap between a first protrusion and the abutment target portion and a gap between a second protrusion and the abutment target portion, the first protrusion and the second protrusion being provided to the rotor. In the standby state, a gap length from the first protrusion to the abutment target portion is small relative to a gap length from the second protrusion to the abutment target portion.

  • Publication number: 20210276458
    Abstract: A controller, which serves as a pressure-feeding control portion, drives an air pump to pressure-feed air to massage airbags located in a seat. In addition, the controller, which serves as an inflation-deflation control portion, performs massage control that inflates and deflates the airbags while keeping the air pump driven by controlling the operation of intake-discharge valves in second flow passage (branch lines), which connects the air pump to the airbags. Furthermore, the controller, which serves as a decompression control portion, opens a discharge valve, which is located upstream of the intake-discharge valves, in a state in which the airbags are deflated during the massage control.
