INVALID-REST FOR Bans.

' Specification of Letters Patent.-

Application filed March 6, 1915. Serial No. 12,575.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, WILLIAM S. GIBSON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ossining, in the countyv of Westchester and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Invalid-Rests for Beds, tion. v

This invention contemplates the provision of which the following is a specificaof an invalid rest especially designed for use in sick rooms in connection with a bed, and adapted to be arranged upon-the latt'er for supporting the patient in upright position when desired. i

The invention aims to provide adevice of this character capable of beingquickly folded in compact form to occupy a minimum amount of space when not in use.

A further object of'the invention resides in the provision of a device of this nature wherein thevarious parts can be readily set up in position for use and adjusted to the comfort of the patient.

Other objects will appear as the nature of the invention is better understood from the following description, wherein the structure 'is fully described in detail.

In the drawings forming a part of this application like numerals ofreference indicate similar parts in the several views and whereinz+ Figure l. is a perspective view showing the device in position for use. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the devicefolded. Fig. 3'is an enlarged detail view of one corner of the foot rest; showing its connection with the base. Fig. 4 is an enlarged detail view of the forward ends of the arms showing the connection of the table therewith.-*Fig. 5

is a view showing the. connection between theback of the rest the bed.

Referring more particularly to the'drawing A indicates the base frame compris ng the spaced parallel bars, each of which include telescopic sections 6 and 7 respectively, the sections 6 telescoping within the sections 7 and held in any desired positionby means of the set screw 8.

The back of the device which maybe constructed from cane or any other suitable material is indicated at 9 and pivotally connected at its lower end with the sections 7 in any suitable manner as at 10. Rising from and the head board of a point adjacentthe forward endsof the! sections 7 are spaced pairsof ears ll beof,; the arms.

the horizontal members 13 The members 13 are provided PatentedFeb. 15,1916.

pivotally mounted the veri pivotally connected to the V with a longitudinal series of'apertures'; .14

adjacent the opposite ends thereof for inter- .9, whereby the arms: may

changeable engagement with hook-likemem bers 15 pro ecting. laterally from the'corner' posts of the back be adjusted longitudinally with respect to the base upon adjustment of the'sections 6 and 7 of thegbase.

Supported by the forward ends of the membersv 13 of the. arms is a table "16, connected toone. of. the arms by means of a ball Y and socket; connection 17, and deta chably connected to the; other arm by means of. a

hook and eye connection 18, to ,permit the table to be swung-to one side of and in parallelism with oneof the arms in folded position asshown in Fig. 2.

Depending from the underside of the table, and

hingedly connected therewith are'supporting rods 19;adapted for interchangeable-en gagement with the vertical series ofnotches 20, formed in the vertical member 12 of the arms, whereby the table may be adjusted vertically with respect to the base.

Arranged at the forward ends of the sections '6 of the base is a foot rest 21, being connected therewith by means of a ball and socket connection-22 atonecorner and a hook and eye connection 23 at the opposite' the foot rest to and swung upon corner thereof, to permit ed position. The foot rest 21' may be constructed from any suitable material, and arranged vertically in set up position, and

by reason of the connection between the foot rest and the sections 6 of the base, the former' may be 'adjusted vertically, and held in any desired degree of inclination. by I comprisingtelescopic sections 27, the outermost section being formed with a bracket:

28 adapted to be clampedupon the corner post of the bed by meansof the set screws 29. The bracket of course can be'designed to accommodate the particular shape of ob ject-toiwhich it is to be secured. By reason of this construction the sections 27 of the brace bars maybe adjusted and locked by means of the set screw 30 with a view of maintaining the back at any degree of inclination to the comfort of the patient.

Secured to the side rails of the bed are leather brace straps 31 having their, opposite ends detachably connected to the horizontal members 13 of the arms of the device as shown.

Aswill be readily understood the device is primarily intended to be used at meal time, and when its useis desired the parts are arranged in set up position and placed upon the bed in the manner clearly shown in Fig. 1. Obviously the back 9' and foot rest 21 may be properly-adjusted to the comfort of the patient, and the table 16 adjusted to bring the latter Within convenient reach of the patient.

When it is desired to remove the chair from the bed, the brace straps 31. are detached from the arms 13, and the clamp 28 removed from the corner posts of the bed, subsequent to which the various parts may be readily and quickly folded in the manner shown in Fig. 2'. In this operation the foot rest 21 is first detached from one of the secticns 6 of thebaseframe, and swung upon its ball and socket connection to one side of the other of the sections 6 and in parallelism therewith. The sections 6 are then moved within the sections 7 of the base, after which the table 16 is unhooked from one of the arms 13 and swung upon its ball and socket connection 17 to one side of and in paralleli'sm with the other arm 13, it of course being understood that thebrace bars 19 are first disengaged from the notches 20. The members 13 of the arms are then 'unhooked from the back 9, ermitting the, latter to fold upon the base, and the arms to be subsequently folded upon the back, thus producing a compact structure which will occupy but small space, and which may be placed underneath the bed when not in use if so desired.

The various parts of the device may be constructed from. any suitable material and of any desired dimensions.

It is believed that from the foregoing description the nature and advantages of the invention will be readily apparent without requiring a more extended explanation and been omitted. However I desire tohave it understood that various changes in the construction. and arrangement ,of parts may be resorted to -when desired as fall within thescope of the appended claims.- I
