BED.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Mar. 3, 1914.

Application filed September 9, 1913. Serial No. 788,870.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, FRANK J. CROUCH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Portland, in the county of Multnomah and State of Oregon, have invented a new and useful Bed, of which the following is a specification.

The present invention relates to improvements in beds, one object of the invention being the provision of a bed adapted to be uprighted and to rest upon its head to permit of the ready transportation of the same from one room to the other and to also economize space.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a bed, the head of which is constructed as an overbalancing means, whereby when the foot thereof is uplifted, a counter-balancing action will take place that will relieve the dead weight upon the foot of the bed and will assist in causing the bed to assume and remain in a vertical position.

A. still further object of the invention is the provision of novel means connected to and carried by the head of the bed, which permits of the same being readily manipulated to be pushed or pulled over the floor in such uprighted position, the legs connected to the head being peculiarly constructed and mounted to assist in the uprighting of the bed and to be folded out of the way when in upright position.

With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed can be made within the scope of which is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the drawingsFigure 1 is a perspective view of the complete bed in the position it assumes when in use. Fig. 2 is a plan view taken from the head of the bed with the parts folded. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the bed when in upright position, the foot of the bed being in extended position, dotted lines illustrating the position of the feet just previous to folding. Fig. 1 is a bottom plan view of the bed in upright position, the parts being in the position as shown in Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is a similar view with the foot rail and the feet or legs of the head of the bed folded.

Referring to the drawings, the numeral 1 designates the mattress carrying frame of the bed, which may be made in any desired form, having hingedly connected to the foot thereof, the upper section 2 and the lower sect-ion 3 which constitutes the foot rail and support for the foot of the bed. These parts are normally held in proper position as shown in Fig. 1, by means of the pivoted braces 1.

A head member 5, is provided, such member being relatively heavy as compared to the remainder of the bed to form a counterbalancing means when the bed is moved or uptilted from the position shown in Fig. 1 to that shown in Fig. 3. At each side of the head member 5 are disposed the plates 6 of peculiar construction, the heads 7 being rounded to form a mounting or proper support for the pivoted head rail 8. The terminals of the head rail 8, such as 9, are reduced to cotiperate with the notches 10 formed in the periphery of the head portions 7 of the side plates 6, the inner terminals 11 of the head rail being disposed to parallel the inner faces of the portions 7 and have the pins 12 cooperate with the bayonet slots 13 so that the head rail 8 may be moved to the position as shown on Fig. 1, or to that shown in Fig. 3.

There are two curved frames 13, each carrying a roller 14 and they constitute the legs for supporting the head of the bed, the curved frames also constituting a rocker to assist in the uprighting of the bed from the position as shown in Fig. 1 to that shown in Fig. 3. Each frame 13 is pivotally connected to the lugs 15 of the extended end 16 of the plate 6, so that when the frames 13 are folded out of the way, the same will be nested against the under side of the frame 1 adjacent the head member 5 of the bed and be held in such position by means of the pivoted bail Q3 journaled as illustrated.

In order to provide a means for permitting of the easy movement of the bed when in uprighted position from place to place, as from one room to another and through the doorway, the rails 2 and 8 being folded to reduce the area of the bed, and thus permit the ready removal of the same through a door or into a closet as may be desired, a roller receptacle 17 is carried by the head member 5 and has leading therefrom, a tube or journal 18 for the reception of the shaft 19, there being disposed upon the shaft 19 within the receptacle 17, a cylindrical roller 20, while keyed upon the outer end of the same, as illustrated in Fig. 2, is a roller 21, the outer edge of which has its periphery rounded as at a so as to permit of the proper movement of the bed from the position shown in Fig. 1 to that shown in Figs. 3, 1 and 5. These rollers 20 and 21 are disposed centrally and in alined arrangement so that the weight of the bed may be disposed thereupon and also so that the bed may be spun or turned around upon these rollers in a limited space. A frame 22 is disposed to incase the roller 21 to protect the same and is connected to the rear or under face of the lower edge of the head member 5.

In order to assist in the easy transportation of the present device from place to place and also to prevent the corners of the frame or head member 5 from engaging projections, such as carpets or door sills, the two rollers 24 are mounted in the head member 5.

From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the drawings, it is evident that with the bed assuming the position as shown in Fig. 1, and it is desired to simply move the bed to a different position without operating, it is necessary only to grip the lower foot rail 3 at the foot of the bed and elevate the same slightly above the floor so to throw the weight upon the two rollers 1 but when it is desired to upright it to the position, as shown in Fig. 3, it is simply necessary to further push the foot upwardly and roll the bed upon the curved arms or members 13 until the rollers 20 and 21 engage the floor. The foot rail sections 2 and 3 can then be folded either with the rail section 3 downwardly underneath the frame 1 or with both sections in the position as shown in F 5. Thus by folding the foot sections 2 and 3 in this position, tae bed will be reduced in area while the legs 13 may be folded to assume the position as shown in Fig. 5 and held in place by means of the hanger At the same time, the head rail 8 is positioned as shown in Fig. 3 and thus the bed is folded to the smallest possible space and can assume a vertical position.

It is evident that with a bed constructed according to the present invention, that the same may be readily positioned into and outof use occupying the least possible space when out of use, and thus making it a desirable fixture for use in small apartments or places where it is desired to economize space. it is also apparent that the present bed is specially adapted for use in hospitals, as it can be readily moved from place to place when occupied or stored when not in use.

hat is claimed is:

1. A bed, including a frame, a counterbalancing head member for the frame to form a base therefor when the frame is in an upright position, said head member being provided with two wings one at each end thereof, two curved members pivotally connected to the lower edge of the wings for movements to and from each other to assume positions parallel with or at right angles to the frame, said curved members constituting legs for the head member, and means ror retaining said hinged members in extended or folded position.

2. A bed, including a frame, a counterbalancing head member for the frame to form a base therefor when the frame is in an upright position, said head member be ing provided with two wings one at each end thereof, two curved members pivotally connected to the lower edge of the wings for movements to and from each other to assume positions parallel with or at right angles to the frame, said curved members constituting legs for the head member, means for retaining said hinged members in extended or folded position, and a pivoted head rail connected to the opposite ends of the wings for movement parallel or at right angles to the head member.

3. A bed, including a frame, a counterbalancing head member for the frame to form a base therefor when the frame is in an upright position, said head member being provided with two wings one at each end thereof, two curved members pivotally connected to the lower ed 'e of the wings for movements to and from each other to assume positions parallel with or at right angles to the frame, said curved members constituting legs for the head member, means for retaining said hinged members in eX tended or folded position, a pivoted head rail connected to the opposite ends of the wings for movement parallel or at right angles to the head member, ant. sectional foot rail and leg pivotally connected to the frame and for movement at right angles to or parallel with the frame.

t. i counter-balancing head member for beds, including a relatively flat portion, a supporting and carrying roller disposed centrally and transversely thereof, and two swingingly mounted rocker shaped legs connected to the ends thereof and forming guiding means to assist in positioning the bed in a vertical or horizontal position.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto affixed my signa ture in the presence of two witnesses.
