BED Rnsr.

Application filed March 3, 1926. Serial N0.'91,996.

This invention relates to improvements in bed rests and has particular reference to a combined leg rest and body stop for use upon beds.

The primary object of the invention resides in a bed restfor use by invalids or convalescent persons who are required to remain in bed, and the same is adapted to assist in comfortably supporting such a person in a semi-upright position with the legs of the person bent at the knees, and the body of the person braced against sliding movement, it being appreciated that the normal tendency of a person while sitting in a semiupright position in bed is, to slide toward the foot of the bed.

Another objectresides in a bed rest which may be readily adjusted to suit the requirements of the user, that is for the accommodation of various size persons.

A further object of the invention is to provide a bed rest which may be easily lifted onto the bed and adjusted by a single person when'intended for use, and which may be readily removed from the bed and collapsed so as to take up a minimum amount of space.

lVith these and other objects in view, the invention resides in certain novel construction and combination and arrangement of parts. the essential features of which are hereinafter fully described, are particularly pointed out in the appended claim, and are illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in r wh1ch:-

Figure 1 is a side elevation of our im proved bed rest in position upon a bed.

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the bed rest per se.

Figure 3 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view therethrough.

Figure 41 is a vertical transverse sectional view on the line 4 4c of Figure 3.

Referring more particularly to the draw ing, the reference numeral 10 designates our improved bed rest in its entirety and which includes a base section 11, and an adjustable support 12 mounted thereon. The base 11 comprises a pair of parallel members 13 which are held in spaced relation by transverse brace rods 14. The base may be constructed of any suitable material such as relatively light metal and adjacent one end of the members 13. there is provided oppositely disposed stops 15, which are shown as stamped from the material from members 13 are formed. 7

The adjustable support 12' comprises a which the body rest 16 and a leg' rest 17 for the purpose to be presently explained. The support is constructed of a pair of frame sections 18 and 19, which are hingedly connected together as at 20. The free ends of the frame section 19 are .hingedly connected to the members 13 as at 21, while the free end of the frame section 18 carries a transverse cross rod 22, which is adapted to seat against the oppositely disposed stops 15, to hold the support in various positions of adjustment. The frame sections 18 and 19 are braced adjacent the hinged ends by means of cross pieces 23 which co-aet to provide a bridge at the meeting ends of the sections. A coverlng' of canvas or other heavy flexible material 24 1s secured to the frame sections and serves as a rest surface for the body and legs of a user.

For the purpose of more adequately bracing the support. there is provided a U-shaped brace member 25 which is hingedly connected to the respective members 13 and which co-acts with stop members 26 carried by the frame section 19.

In use, the bed rest is placed upon the mattress of a bed, and the sections 18 and 19 are adjusted to meet the comfort of a.

patient. The adjustment is obtained by seating the cross rod 22 in engagement with the desired stops 15. The brace member 25 is accordingly moved into engagement with certain of the opposed stops 26 at which time the device is ready for use. The patient is raised in bed to a semi-upright position, so that the body of the patient rests against the section 16, while his legs are in a bent position at the knees so that the lower extremities of the legs rest upon the section 17. It will be seen that the body of the patient is braced against the body section 16 and is prevented from sliding toward the foot of the bed. It will be appreciated that the back of the patient is supported by pillows or a back rest, which back rest may be adjustably connected to the device by inserting the same in any set of opposed openings 27 which are provided in the members 13 adjacent one end thereof. The device is ad justable for the accommodation of short or tall people. it being understood that for the comfort of a tall person or one having relatively long legs, the cross rod 22 would have to be connected with those stops 15 -nearest.

to be the most desirable embodiment of our invention, it is obvious that many of the details may be varied Without in any way departing from the spirit of our invention, and we therefore do not limit ourselves to the exact details of construction herein set forth norto anything less than the Whole of our invention 1imited: only by the appended 10; claim;

hat is claimed as new is 1- A device of the class descnibed. comprising. a pair. of spacedtparallel members, a pair of hingedly connected rest sections, one of said sections being hingedly mounted on said members, and a. U shape brace" member having its free ends hingedly connected to the respective parallel members, opposed sets of stops on said last mentioned section for engagement by the U-shaped brace member and sets of oppositely disposed stop members provided on said parallel members :[orengagement bythe freeend of said other rest section for holding said rest sections in various angular positions with: respect to each other.

In testimony Whereof'we have affixed our signatures.
