UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

ISRAEL KINNEY, OF LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, ASSIGNOR TO SAMUEL D. MAcKI-NNOIJ.

MECHANICAL-MOVEMENT EXERCISER.

Application led December 17, 1917.

To olii whom it may concern:

lie it known that l, IsnAnL KINNEY, a citizen of the Dominion of Canada, residing at Los Angeles.r in the county of Los Angeles and State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Mechanical- Movement Exercisers, of which the following is aspecitication.

This invention relates to a mechanical movement especially adapted for use in ex ercising the body and as un amusement device.

rThe objects of this invention are first, to provide a device which requires the use of the body muscles to operate the same: second, to provide a device which will disturb and roll the internal organs of the torso: and third, to provide a device which will shake and vibrate the body.

ln addition to the broader objects of thisI invention there are further objects, which include providing a device which may serve as an amusement, will be simple, cheap, and durable in construction.

I accomplish these objects by means of the embodiments of my invention illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which;

Figure 1, is a side view of a preferred form of my device, a portion being broken away to better show the means for adjusting the reclining back. Fig. 2, is a top view of the structure shown in Fig. 1. Fig. 3, is a modied forni. Fig. l, is another modiied form. Fig. 5, is an enlarged section through a block or knob.

Referring more particularly to Fi s. l Y

and 2, 6 is a base or table of circular orm. Secured to the center of the base 6 upon the under side thereof is a pivot leg 7. The height of leg i' may be adjusted by means of the screw connection between it and the base. The end of pivot leg 7 is rounded and has a .screw which extends through a plate 9 with the head of the screw below the plate and the rounded end of the pivot leg resting on the plate, thereby providing for a rolling motion of the pivot leg. The plate .l is fastened by any suitable means to a foot, which rests upon the Hoor. thus preserving the floor or carpet from injury. the rounded end of the pivot leg may rest directly upon the floor, no plate being used. lu either construction a universal movement between the leg and floor is provided. The under side of base 6 is provided with projections 10 in the form of blocks or knobs Specification of Letters Patent.

It' desired Patented Oct. 29, 1.918.

Serial No. 207,439.

to operate the exereiser is. greater than in` others.

The structure shown in Figs'. 1 and 2 is intended to be used by the patient either lying upon his back or reclining thereon in a sitting posture. A. seat 11, is supporte-l above the base 6 by means of side piecesl ow ot' which is indicated in Fig. 1 b v 1;. Thea; side pieces are, fastened to posts 13, which are mort-ised to the base. 1l is an adjustable back 1l. ln order to tix the back 1l in any position of adjustment. :1 segment having a rack 15 thereon is pivoied io thc under side ot the back. The rack 13 is. arranged to engage a catch bar 1G. This is a common type of adjustment and needs no further description.

The edges of the seat are provided with raised portions 17 and 1S. serving as hand grips. by which the patient may steady himself. The base (S is provided with u raised portion 19 at the edge. which serves as a foot rail and rest for the feet. when it is not de sired to place the same on the floor.

The structure shown in Figs. 1 and Q is operated in the following manner: The patient sits upon the seat 11 with his feet resting upon the floor and his back restingr upon the back 14. which has been adjusted to the desired angle. He now rolls the base by Y,pressing upon the floor with one foot then with the other, so that the point of support rolls or progressively moves from one block to another. The movement of the base 6 causes a like movement of the body with a consequent rolling of the internal organs within the cavity of the body. At the sune time the abdominal muscles are exercised by the effort made to operate the device. As the point of Contact is transferred from one block to another there is a. knocking or shaking causing a vibration which is transmit-ted to the body. thereby gently jarringr or shaking up the entire body. This induces ready perspiration and promotes freedom of the bowels.

The structure may be used by placing the feet upon the base with the heels behind the rest 19.A and then moving the center of gravity of the body so as to cause a rolling of the exerciser. By using the, exercser in Pivoted to thc sont lios inannrr .incre of the body muscles are i alici into play and thc results attained are i tival..

llrl'crring particularly to `Fig. 3, a rocking hair t) pelof structure is shown. This is erspwfiaiiy suitable lfor persons who are very noble or those who desire to use the struc iure merely for the pleasant rolling sensa-- iin Th1.,n upper part of the device is of the my :mn chair type. A. rocking rim 2l n ixwl io the bottoni of the legs and need he only about l, -`o thirds of a circle. Scrua'ed 'to cross pieces Q2 is a pivot leg 23 havin" 'tout tiff. This structure has no or winni ing knobs upon the rocker, Init ilove may be added, if desirei'l. The inclina?. nl' operating the saine is obvious.

ln idg. i, l have shown a stool having a i and au arni 2li. A number of legs z' sem e as the base and knoclnrs. A. block Lft@ is disposed between the legs, and they :inl fasti-ned thereto. A central pivot leg 'in is weird to block 2S by n screw con-- ici-sal Munitionn and the toot should bc' lnsirnezi io Einf licor to prevent the stool man tipping ovvi'. ln all cases where the device is wry nun-h elevated, it will be necessary to fasten the Vloot to the floor to Iii-m ont tipping.

The blocks l0 of Figs. l and 2 may be wnipprai with stili springs or rubber cushions, which maire the operation silent and also act to spoed the n'ioveinent. Such a consum-tion is shown in Fig. 5. The block l0 is equipped with a tenon 3i adapted to fit in a inorlisc in the base. The Contact face of the block is inclined,y so it will not mar or injure thc iloor or carpet. A bore is formed in the i'ncc, and a rubber cushion 32 is placed therein.

It is also evident that ,in v Construction may ne cndiodicd in i rocking horse suitable for children. Yarious dther modifications ci' the simi-turc may be used lo suit the dcivr: to iin particular circumstances withiiut departing i'roin nijv invention.

l. In :i device oi the class described, a inse having supports arranged so that it may be tilted in all directions, said supports being arranged in spaced relation, whereby a. wabhling shaking movement may be ob: tained. u,

2. In a device of the class described a wnhhlng base having a pivot projecting from its center, said base having a series of 60 elevations and depressions on :its under side forming contacts, whereby wabbling movement of said base will produce vibration.

3. In a device of the class described adapted to rest upon a surface, a Wabbling supported thereon, said pivot leg having a uni vcrsal movement with respect to said surface, whereby wabbling movement of said base will produce vibration.

4. In a device of the class described, a

wnbbling base, means to jolt said base during its Wabbling movement, and a rest for the body to rechne upon mounted upon said base, said rest having a portion disposing thc body so that the lnternal organs of the user will gravitate in the abdominal cavity,

rolling thcrcabout. i

5. In a device of thcrclass described, a base having supports arranged so that it may be tilted in all directions, said su ports being arranged in spaced relation, W ereby .85

a wabbling shaking movement may be obtained, and a rest for the body to recline upon mounted upon said base, said rest having a portion disposing the body so that the internal organs of the user will gravitate in the abdominal cavity, rolling thcreabout.
