Title:
CONTROLLING A FORCE GENERATOR OF AN EXERCISE APPARATUS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2021/186083
Kind Code:
A9
Abstract:
Methods and systems for controlling a force generator of an exercise apparatus are described wherein the method comprises determining or receiving angular positions of a rotatable axle of an exercise apparatus when a force is applied to a force receiving structure of the exercise apparatus, the rotatable axle being part of a mechanical power transmission system connecting the force receiving structure via the rotatable axis to a force generator which is controlled by a computer based on a kinematic model, the kinetic model representing equations of motion of the exercise the apparatus; determining or retrieving first geometrical scaling values associated with the angular positions and incorporating the first geometrical scaling values into the kinematic model to form a first modified kinematic model, the first geometrical scaling values being associated with a non- circular gear of a first predetermined non-circular geometry; and, determining applied force values for the angular positions, each applied force value representing a force that is applied to the force receiving structure; and, controlling the force generator based on first resistive force values to mimic an exercise apparatus comprising a mechanical power transmission system including the first non-circular gear, the first resistive force values being computed using the first modified kinematic model and the applied force values.
