Description:

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to body shaping device, and in particular to a vibration body shaping device, wherein the vibration strength is controllable so as to achieve the object of increasing the blood circulation of human body and the object of body shaping.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Body shaping is more and more popular recently. Body shaping technology is based on the vibration of human body so as to increase the blood circulation, release the fatigue of body, and reduce weight. In general, the body shaping device is formed by a belt which is driven by an electric driving device. The belt winds around the body. Then the belt vibrates to have the effect of massage, reducing fat, etc. Thereby the skin becomes smooth to have a beautiful shape. Especially, this is important to women. However, current body shaping machines are not practical and cannot satisfy the necessity of human body.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Accordingly, the primary object of the present invention is to provide a vibration body shaping device, wherein the vibration strength is controllable so as to achieve the object of increasing the blood circulation of human body and the object of body shaping.

To achieve above object, the present invention provides a vibration body shaping device. The device comprises a flat plate having a top surface for locating hands or legs of the users; and a bottom surface of the flat plate being installed with a movable hinge as a supporting point; a crank having one end connected to the bottom surface of the flat plate; an eccentric wheel being hinged to another end of the crank; the eccentric wheel being connected to an electric driving device; and when the electric driving device operates, the electric driving device will drive the eccentric wheel and the eccentric wheel will rotate to drive the flat plate to vibrate upwards and downwards through the operation of the crank.

In the first case, the eccentric wheel is secured to a bearing seat; an electric driving device is connected to the eccentric wheel through a transfer belt.

In the second case, the eccentric wheel is directly secured to an axial center of an electric driving device.

In the third case, the eccentric wheel is firmly secured to one end of a rotary shaft; the rotary shaft is supported by a bearing seat; a belt wheel is engaged to the rotary shaft; a transfer belt serves to connect the rotary shaft to an electric driving device.

In the fourth case, the eccentric wheel is firmly secured to two ends of a rotary shaft; the rotary shaft is supported by a bearing seat; a belt wheel is engaged to the rotary shaft; a transfer belt serves to connect the rotary shaft to an electric driving device.

Moreover in the present invention, the flat plate is tied with a rope for retaining the balance of the user.

In the present invention, the user can stand on the flat plate with various poses, for example, stand by one leg or two legs, or by pressing of single hand or two hands. Thereby when the user stands upon the flat plate, the hands of the user can pull the ropes and actuate the electric driving device so that the flat plate vibrates with a predetermined frequency. Furthermore, the vibration frequency is controllable by other electronic device. Thereby the different portions, such as legs, hands, palms, arms, etc. of the human body can feel the vibration so as to increase the blood circulation of human body.

The various objects and advantages of the present invention will be more readily understood from the following detailed description when read in conjunction with the appended drawing.

In the following, the first embodiment about the vibration body shaping device of the present invention will be described.

Referring to FIG. 3, the present invention has the following elements.

A flat plate 1 has a top surface for locating hands or legs of the users. A bottom surface of the flat plate 1 is installed with a movable hinge 2 as a supporting point.

A crank 3 has one end connected to the bottom surface of the flat plate 1.

An eccentric wheel 4 is hinged to another end of the crank 3. The eccentric wheel 4 is firmly secured to a bearing seat 6. An electric driving device 5 is connected to the eccentric wheel 4 through a transfer belt 7. When the electric driving device 5 operates, the eccentric wheel 4 will rotate to drive the flat plate 1 to vibrate upwards and downwards through the operation of the crank 3.

Referring to FIG. 4, the flat plate 1 is tied with a rope 10 for retaining the balance of the user. Thereby the vibration of the flat plate 1 is transferred to the hands of the user. Thereby the upper portion of the user can vibration effectively.

In the following, the second embodiment of the present invention will be described.

A flat plate 1 has a top surface for locating hands or legs of the users. A bottom surface of the flat plate 1 is installed with a movable hinge 2 as a supporting point.

A crank 3 has one end connected to the bottom surface of the flat plate 1.

An eccentric wheel 4 is hinged to another end of the crank 3. The eccentric wheel 4 is firmly secured to an axial center of an electric driving device 5. When the electric driving device 5 operates, the eccentric wheel 4 will rotate to drive the flat plate 1 to vibrate upwards and downwards through the operation of the crank 3.

Referring to FIG. 2, the flat plate 1 is tied with a rope 10 for retaining the balance of the user. Thereby the vibration of the flat plate 1 is transferred to the hands of the user. Thereby the upper portion of the user can vibration effectively when the lower portion of the user vibrates.

In the following, the third embodiment of the present invention will be described.

A flat plate 1 has a top surface for locating hands or legs of the users. A bottom surface of the flat plate 1 is installed with a movable hinge 2 as a supporting point.

A crank 3 has one end connected to the bottom surface of the flat plate 1.

An eccentric wheel 4 is hinged to another end of the crank 3, see FIG. 6. The eccentric wheel 4 is firmly secured to one end of a rotary shaft 8. The rotary shaft 8 is supported by a bearing seat 6. A belt wheel 9 is engaged to the rotary shaft 8. A transfer belt 7 serves to connect the rotary shaft 8 to an electric driving device 5. When the electric driving device 5 operates, the belt wheel 9 will drive the rotary shaft 8 so as to rotate the eccentric wheel 4. The eccentric wheel 4 will rotate to drive the flat plate 1 to vibrate upwards and downwards through the operation of the crank 3.
