  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF INVENTION
  • [0011]
    The Manually Self-Operated Butt-Kicking Machine is a chair with a hole in the bench with a kicking mechanism located below the hole. The kicking mechanism consists of a bar, which is attached to a rotating axis at one end, and has a boot attached to the opposite end, which kicks through the hole in the bench when the machine is operated. The machine can be manually operated when the user or operator pulls an overhead hand-operator lever, which rotates about an axis of revolution. A mechanical linkage is operatively connected to the hand-operator lever at one end, and to the kicking mechanism at the other end. When the lever is pulled down, the rotation of the lever moves the mechanical linkage, which is also connected to the kicking mechanism. When the mechanical linkage moves down, it rotates the axis of the kicking mechanism, which causes the boot to kick through the hole in the bench. The amplitude or height of the kick of the boot cycle on the kicking mechanism can be adjusted from low to high. On the low setting, the maximum height of the tip of the boot is level with the top of the bench during the kicking cycle. On the high setting, the maximum height of the tip of the boot penetrates about four inches above the top of the bench.
  • [0012]
    The machine is utilized when the user, who is the recipient of the butt-kicking operation, sits down on the bench and centers his or her posterior over the hole in the bench. The machine has a seatbelt to assure safety and guarantee commitment. After fastening the seatbelt, the user or operator then activates the machine by reaching up and grabbing the hand-operator lever. The lever can be self-operated by the user or another person may operate it. As the lever is pulled down, the mechanical linkage rotates the kicking mechanism, which then rotates the boot, which in turn makes contact with the users' posterior. The butt-kicking operation can be administered continuously or intermittently as determined by the user or the operator. After each kicking operation, a spring moves the lever back to its original position, so that the next round of butt kicking can proceed. The machine's operating frequency and the magnitude of the kick is determined by the speed at which the user of the operator moves the lever up and down and the force that is, applied on the lever. The boot amplitude is adjusted to satisfy the user's needs. The butt-kicking operation is continued until the desired results are achieved.
