Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19734503A1] The invention relates to a rotary adjustment mechanism, especially for adjusting an automobile seat, comprising a first element (28) with an undulated surface (30). Said undulated surface (30) is able to rotate around an axis of rotation (12). An eccentric element (20) which can also rotate has a circular perimeter, the course of said perimeter being eccentric in relation to the axis of rotation (12). The eccentric element (20) is able to rotate in relation to the first element (28) and lodges said first element (28). A supporting element (24) which is torsionally rigid in relation to the axis of rotation (12) is mounted on the rotary eccentric element (20) and supports a plurality of roll bodies (22), said roll bodies (22) engaging with the undulated surface (30) of the first element (28) and the circular perimeter of the eccentric element (20).
