Abstract

The invention relates to a lying board with a support surface (1) made of a stable load-bearing material, which essentially has a size such that a person can lie on it, and with a tilting bearing (2) arranged on the underside of the support surface (1), which is essentially provided in the center of gravity or the center of the support surface.

Description

  • The present invention relates to a bed board, which is within the framework of the muscle or Nerve treatment or muscle training can be used.
  • As part of the treatment or prevention, weakened, cramped or Diseased muscles or compressed nerve pathways are currently often difficult Movement therapies treated. On the one hand, some people shy away from the often relatively large ones Efforts here and on the other hand, such treatments are usually expensive and hardly themselves executable without instructions being provided by qualified persons.
  • It is the object of the invention to provide a lying board, for example as a device for To provide muscle or nerve pathway treatment, which has the disadvantages mentioned above overcomes. In particular, it should be possible without much effort and without high incurred costs to be able to carry out a corresponding treatment at home.
  • According to the invention, this object is achieved by a lying board, as defined in claim 1 is described. This bed board has a support surface made of a stable load-bearing Material that is essentially of such a size that a person can lie on it. Furthermore, a tilting bearing is provided on the underside of the support surface It is essentially provided in the center of gravity or the center of the support surface.
  • The user can procure such a lying board relatively cheaply and close it with him Use at home again and again. He lies down on the board with his back now has a tendency to tip around the tilt bearing. The one on the board lying person will now try the body with small balance movements Shift the body's weight center of gravity so that it is in a floating position can hold the tilting bearing, d. H. he will always try to focus like this store that it lies directly above the tipping bearing.
  • These constant compensatory movements, for example, press the lower legs or the shoulders or the left or right side of the body on the board, and through this Weight shifts create a kind of playful tension in the whole body, which is felt in one Reaching equilibrium repeatedly dissolves. This then becomes a Deep relaxation of the muscles in the entire spinal area is achieved and compressed nerve tracts become free again. Tendons and muscles are trained.
  • Accordingly, by the relatively simple device according to the present Invention the desired effect can be achieved.
  • According to a preferred embodiment of the present invention, the tilt bearing is a Point bearing, which allows the support surfaces to be tilted in all directions. Conceivable but it is also to design the tilting bearing as a rocking bearing, which is a rocking of the Surface allowed around an axis.
  • The tilting bearing can basically be provided in several embodiments. at According to an embodiment variant of the invention, the tilting bearing is located on the underside of the Support surface from and can lie on the floor with its tilting support. It is also conceivable, so to speak, "reverse" the structure, then the tilt bearing one on the Floor fixed base, which forms a tilting surface on its top, which in a Pick-up engages on the underside of the bed surface. What is important is inventive Context that the bed board can perform a tilting or rocking motion, which is too leads to an unstable equilibrium state when a person lies down on the bed.
  • In an advantageous embodiment, the tilting bearing has one on the underside of the support surface attached base plate with a trough-shaped recess in which a Bearing ball is arranged, which forms the tilting support. This tilting support, i. H. the bearing ball on the ground can still be fixed against rolling away.
  • The bed surface can be made of wood or a suitably stable plastic material be formed. If a bearing ball is used, it can for example consist of a Stone material or a semi-precious stone material, in particular rock crystal, amethyst, onyx, Rose quartz. It is also conceivable to use a metal material, especially stainless steel, copper or brass.
  • In a further preferred embodiment of the present invention Circumferential area on the underside of the support surface elastically deformable buffers or dampers arranged. If the bed surface is rectangular, we recommend four Attach buffers or dampers to the corner areas to prevent the bed surface from tipping over not to let go too quickly or to prevent excessive effort is necessary to achieve the aforementioned equilibrium position.
  • The buffers or dampers can advantageously be made of an elastic rubber material, hard rubber material in particular or, in another case, of coil springs be trained.
  • The invention will now be explained in more detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. Show it:
  • Fig. 1 shows an inventive deck board in an oblique view from above;
  • FIG. 2 the bed board from FIG. 1 in an oblique view from below; and
  • Fig. 3 is an enlarged view of the base plate with the receiving trough for the bearing ball.
  • In Fig. 1 the main components of the deck board according to the invention can be seen. In the present preferred embodiment, it consists of a wooden board 1 , which has the shape of an elongated rectangle and is dimensioned such that a person can lie on it.
  • On the underside of the wooden board 1 , the tilting bearing is indicated exactly in the middle and four dampers 5 made of hard rubber material are shown on the underside of each corner.
  • The structure from FIG. 2, which shows the lying board from FIG. 1 from below, is somewhat clearer. As indicated by the connecting lines of the corner points of the board 1 , a base plate 3 fastened there lies exactly in the center of the wooden board 1 and is shown somewhat larger in FIG. 3. This base plate 3 also has a recess 6 in the center, which has the shape of a spherical depression.
  • 2, a ball 4 made of stone, semiprecious stone or of a metal is inserted into this ball recess, as is evident again from FIG. 2, the ball having a diameter of 8 to 15 cm according to a preferred embodiment. However, the diameter can also be freely selected within other limits.
  • The buffers 5, which are likewise visible in FIGS. 1 and 2, serve on the one hand to prevent the reclining board from completely tipping over and, on the other hand, by their elasticity enable the balance work of the person lying on the board to be supported.
  • If the board is now placed on the floor, as shown in FIG. 1, a person can lie down on it and carry out the balance movements already described, as a result of which alternating states of tension or relaxation occur in the muscles, which a muscle training, allow deep relaxation of the muscles and release of compressed nerve tracts.
  • It should also be noted that the lying board according to the invention is both itself and a bed (upholstered) can be carried out as well as integrated into a bed.
