  • Patent number: 4346886
    Abstract: An exercising machine in which a belt is movable by a user against a minimum resistance has a user operated control to enable a user to increase that resistance. The belt passes round a series of rollers one or more of which can be locked against rotation by a system of pawls and ratchets or by resilient bushes. A single operating control may be used to actuate the pawls, the position of the control determining the number of rollers that are locked. For certain kinds of exercising machine, the rollers are locked against rotation in one direction only and are freely movable in the other direction. For other kinds of machine, the rollers are locked against movement in both directions.
