LEG-REST.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed August 9, 1918. Serial No. 249,130.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN CONRAD BRUN- GARD, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Callister, in the county of Uinta and State of Wyoming, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Leg- Rests, of which the following is a specification.
My invention is an improvement in leg rests, and has for its object to provide a de vice of the character specified, especially adapted for use in railway cars, to be arranged between the seat of one chair and the foot rest of the adjacent, to provide a rest for the legs, wherein the rest is capable of being folded into small compass and when extended offers a wide comfortable rest.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is an edge view of the rest folded, with parts broken away;
Fig. 2 is a top plan View, with the rest partially unfolded.
Fig. 3 is an edge view of the rest in use.
The present embodiment of the invention is shown in use in a railway car, the rest being arranged between the seat 1 of one chair 2 and the foot rest 3 of another chair 2. The improved rest consists of a portion for each leg of the user, the said portions being hinged together, and each portion is seetional, consisting of three sections which may be folded upon each other, after which the two portions may be folded upon each other to provide a compact body about the size of an ordinary book.
Each of the portions consists of a central section 4 and end sections 5 and 6, the end sections 5 and 6 being hinged to the mid sections, as indicated .at 7 and 8, respectively, in such manner that one end section may fold down flat upon the mid section, after which the other end section may be folded down fiat upon the first named end section. The end section 6 is first folded down upon the adjacent mid section 4, after which the section 5 is folded down upon the adjacent end section 6. The mid sections 4 are hinged together as indicated at 9 in such manner that the two mid sections may be folded one upon the other in superposed relation, and since the end sections of each mid section are folded on the outer face of the mid section, it will be obvious that such end sections do not interfere with the fold ing of the mid section.
Referring to Figs. 1 and 2 it will be noticed that each end section 5 has its under face at its free end provided with a rounded recess 10, and these recesses of the two sections are adapted to engage over the edge of the seat of the chair 2, as shown in Fig. 3. The inner face of each of these sections 5 is also rabbeted or recessed as shown at 11, from its outer end to near its inner end, the rabbet being of a depth equal to half the thickness of the section 6, and each section 4: is similarly recessed on its outer face, as indicated at 12, an equal depth. These two recesses cooperate to receive the section 6 when the parts are folded, as clearly shown in Fig. 1.
Eachsection 5 has a transverse rib 12 intermediate its ends and on its inner face when folded, each-rib having an abrupt or perpendicular lower face, and each section has a transverse groove or recess 13 below the rib, that is, at the perpendicular face of the rib. This recess or groove 13 is adapted to receive the edge of the foot rest 3, and the rib 12 is adapted to rest against the edge, as shown in Fig. 3, to limit the downward movement of the rest, that is, to provide a stop for preventing downward movement of the rest beyond the position shown in Fig. 3.
Each section 4. on its outer face has a transverse groove or recess 14 for receiving the adjacent rib 9 when the parts are folded. By means of the rabbets 10 and 11 and the grooves 14, the three sections of each portion may fold smoothly upon each other, and the entire device, when folded, is not larger than an ordinary book. When unfolded a perfect rest is provided for both legs of the user, an easily portable rest being thus provided.
I claim:
1. A device of the character specified comprising two portions, each consisting of a central and end sections, the end sections being hinged to the ends of the central section and the adjacent faces of one end section and the central section being rabbeted to receive the other end section to permit the sections to fold smoothly upon each other, the central sections of the two portions being hinged together to permit the folded portions to fold upon each other, one end section having on its under'face and intermediate its ends a transverse rib and a groove below the rib for engaging the foot rest of a car chair, the other end section having on its under face and at its end a transverse Patented Mar. 18, 1919.
recess for engaging the edge of a seat of a railway car, the central sections of the two portions being transversely recessed to receive the ribs.
2. A device of the character specified comprising two portions, each consisting of a central and end sections, the end sections being hinged to the ends of the central section and the adjacent faces of one end section and the central section being rabbeted to receive the other end section to permit the sections to fold smoothly upon each other, the central sections of the two portions being hinged together to permit the folded portions to fold upon each other, one end section having on its under face and intermediate its ends a transverse rib and a groove below the rib for engaging the foot rest of a car chair, the other end section havin on its under face and at its end a transverse recess for engaging the edge of a seat of a railway car.
3. A device of the character speclfied comprising two portions each consisting of a central and end sections, the end sections being hinged to the ends of the central sec tion and the adjacent faces of one end section and the central section being rabbeted to receive the other end section to permit the Copies of this patent may be obtained for sections to fold smoothly upon each other,
the central sections of the two portions being hinged together to permit the folded portions to fold upon each other, one end section having on its under face and intermediate its ends a transverse rib and a groove below the rib for engaging the foot rest of a car chair.
4. A device of the character specified comprising two portions, each consisting of a central and end sections, the end sections being hinged to the ends of the central section and the adjacent faces of one end section and the central section being rabbeted to receive the other end section to permit the sections to fold smoothly upon each other, the central sections of the two portions being hinged together to permit the folded portions to fold upon each other.
5. A device of the character specified, con.-
sisting of a central and end sections, the
end section being hinged to the ends of the central section, and the adjacent faces of one end section and the central section being rabbeted to receive the other end section to permit the sections to fold smoothly upon each other.
