  • Patent number: 9101792
    Abstract: An exercise machine applicable for strengthening a user's abdominal muscles is described. The exercise machine can include a base frame having a seat pad, a front leg and a rear leg to provide ground support. A mounting assembly a front pivot joint and a rear pivot joint may be rotably mounted on the base frame. A backrest assembly including a backrest pad, lever bars and backrest support bars can be pivotally coupled to the mounting assembly. The front ends of the backrest support bars can be pivotally coupled to the front pivot joint. The front ends of the level bars can be pivotally coupled to the rear pivot joint. The swivel movements can be controlled via a adjustable control mechanism including a height control adjustably attached to the mounting assembly to provide a stop height support of the backrest pad at the rear end of the backrest bars.

  • Publication number: 20150129518
    Abstract: A storage rack assembly comprising a configurable hanging frame and one or more replaceable support elements is described. The support elements may be detachably affixed to the hanging frame. The support elements can provide a holding support at separate elevated positions along the longitudinal direction of the hanging frame. The hanging frame can have one or more frame elements detachably coupled in sequence. The frame elements can include a top frame element adapted to be mounted on an upright surface. Each frame element can have a pair of mounting arms defined with one or more pairs of receiving structures transversely for the separate elevated positions. Each support element can have an engaging structure to be removably coupled with a pair of the receiving structures of a corresponding pair of the mounting arms.

  • Patent number: 9028375
    Abstract: An exercise machine applicable for strengthening users abdominal muscles is described. The machine can include a track frame and a support frame adjustably coupled to the track frame. The track frame can include a pair of parallel rails to provide gliding support for movement along the parallel rails. Two sliding assembly may be movably mounted on the parallel rails respectively. Each sliding assembly may be configurable to move together or separately along the parallel rails. Two seat pads may be adjustably secured to the two sliding assembly respectively. Each seat pad may be rotationally adjustable to change angular relationship between the seat pad's longitudinal direction and movement direction along the parallel rails.

  • Publication number: 20150075393
    Abstract: A trash providing a lid with a compressable structure manually operable via a handle bar adjustably attached to the lid is described. The compressable structure can allow the volume of contents stored within the trash can to be compressed for more efficient use of garbage bags. The handle bar may be attached to the lid in a storage position when not in use. Alternatively or optionally, the handle bar may be attached to the lid in an operating position to push compacting the compressable structure or to pull opening the lid. The handle bar by be operable between the operating and storage position via simple manual push, pull and/or rotate actions.

  • Patent number: 8944980
    Abstract: An exercise machine applicable for strengthening a user's abdominal muscles is described. The exercise machine can include a track frame having a higher end and a lower end. Kneeling assemblies may be mounted on parallel gliding rails of the track frame to receive the knees from a user to make movements up and down between the lower end and the higher end of the track frame. A rotationally adjustable armrest holder may be adjustable rotationally mounted on the upper end of the track frame. The armrest holder can be oriented towards a direction having an angular relationship with an axis of the track frame between the lower end and the higher end. The armrest holder may capable of supporting the arms of the user making the movements with a twisting effect according to the angular relationship.
