Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0894458A2] The footrest has separate tilting support boards (a) for each foot that can be rotated individually. Side panels (i) at both ends of the footrest have unequal sides and by rotating them the height of the footrest can be altered. Preferably the side panels are triangular-shaped to give three different footrest heights and they are tensioned by rubber bands (g) running around them. A spring (h) in the centre of the footrest prevents the boards from being rotated by gentle foot pressure. Rubber discs (j) on the board surfaces prevent the feet from slipping.
