Title:
JUMPING DEVICE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2012/044187
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
The subject of the invention is a jumping device called a trampoline. The jumping device is a mat (1) made od elastic non-expandable fabric stretched over a frame (2) fixed in a housing (3). Under the mat (1) made of elastic non-expandable fabric there is a blocking / unblocking mechanism (4). The blocking / unblocking mechanism (4) comprises a plate (5) moving in a vertical plan, whose task is to block or unblock the mat (1) made of elastic non-expandable fabric. In any location in the circumference of the housing (3) of the jumping device there is a panel (8) with a control mechanism (9).

Description:
Jumping device

The subject of the invention is a jumping device called a trampoline. The known jumping devices called a trampoline have a mat stretched over a metal frame attached to legs. The mat is made of elastic non- expandable fabric. Trampolines are used as enterainment equipment for income generating purposes. In order to operate a trampoline it is necessary to have personnel who collect fees for using the device and count the time. Such a jumping device which can be used any time.

The jumping device according to the invention comprises a mat made of elastic non-expandable fabric, stretched over a frame fixed in a housing. Under the mat made of elastic non-expandable fabric there is a blocking / unblocking mechanism. The blocking / unblocking mechanism comprises a plate moving in the horizontal plane, whose task is to block or unblock the mat made of elastic non-expandable fabric. An advantage is that panels securing the access to the device against unauthorized persons are fixed to the housing of the device. Another advantage is that at least one securing panel has an entrance. In any location in the circumference of the jumping device housing there is a panel with a control mechanism. The conrol mechanism is equipped with a device for collecting money or other vouchers authorizing to use the device. An advantage is that the conrol mechanism comprises at least one display presenting the time progress.

The fact that the device is equipped with an element cotaining a control mechanism, allows to use the device any time after activating it by making a payment. Therefore, the device needs no operating personnel. The subject of the invention is illustrated in the drawing, in which fig. 1 presents the general view of the jumping device, and fig.

2 presents a longitudinal section of the jumping device.

Example 1. The jumping device is a mat 1 made of elastic non- expandable fabric stretched over a metal frame 2 fixed in housing 3. Under the mat 1 made of elastic non-expandable fabric there is a blocking / unblocking mechanism 4. The blocking / unblocking mechanism 4 comprimes a plate 5 moving in a vertical plane, which blocks or unblocks the mat 1 made of elastic non-expandable fabric. In the vicinity of the housing 3 there are securing panels 6 protecting the device from any unathorized access. In one of the securing panels 6 there is an exit 7. in any location in the circumference of the housing

3 of the jumping device there is a panel 8 with a control mechanism 9. the control mechanism 9 is equipped with a system collecting money or other vouchers authorizing to use the jumping device. The control mechanism 9 comprises a display 10 presenting the time progress.

The device operates in the following manner: After making a payment the control mechanism 9 starts up the blocking/unblocking mechanism 4, which lowers the plate 5 and unblocks the mat 1 made of elastic non-expandable fabric for a specified period of time. The time of using the jumping device is correlated with the payment made. After the time determined for a specific user has elapsed, the jumping device is blocked by elevating the plate 5 and blocking the mat 1 made of elastic non-expandable fabric.
