Linear piezoelectric compressor


A linear compressor employing a piezoelectric actuator operating in resonance at a frequency substantially below its natural resonant frequency, which is usually of the order of 10 khz. Low frequency resonance operation of the actuator, of the order of 100 hz., is achieved by incorporating the actuator and its housing with the moving compression piston, such that the moving mass is substantially increased, and by reduction of the effective piezoelectric stiffness using hydraulic amplification of the actuator displacement.

Headrest support structure


Two headrest stays-are supported such that, when the tilting amount in the seat front-rear direction of the headrest stays-relative to a seatback frame is within a specified range, the support stiffness of a headrest relative to the seat front-rear direction is reduced in comparison to when the tilt amount is outside the range. The two headrest stays are secured to be swingable in the seat front-rear direction in the headrest..
