Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0714650A1] The massager consists of a motor with a drive shaft (15) to rotate a massaging head (26) carrying the massaging elements. The massaging head has a central channel (27) for fitting onto the motor shaft and supports (22,19) for linking the two. The supports are in the form of upper (22) and lower (19) stops which allow a relative axial movement of the massaging head and shaft, while the axial channel (27) in the head and the shaft are shaped to allow the head to be disposed at various angles to the shaft. Radial and axial elastic thrust elements (20,21) hold the massaging head in a stable position and to allow its angular and axial movements.
