  • Publication number: 20190247271
    Abstract: A personal massage apparatus employs a single motor to selectively provide the dual action of either a vibrating massage or a percussive massage. Two sprag bearings are mounted on the drive shaft of the electric motor, with the sprag bearings being oriented such that the first sprag bearing is driven when the drive shaft rotates counter-clockwise, and the second sprag bearing is driven when the drive shaft rotates clockwise. The first sprag bearing has an eccentric weight coupled thereto such that vibration for a vibrational massage is caused when the motor rotates counter-clockwise. The second sprag bearing has crankshaft and crank pin coupled thereto, driving a connecting rod in reciprocating motion to drive a percussive massage head when the motor rotates clockwise. A counterbalance on the crankshaft minimizes vibration when the percussion action is selected.
