Abstract

A portable hand wrapping station provides a durable and practical solution for a trainer to wrap a fighter's hands. The hand wrapping station can be used by boxers, mixed martial artists, or any sports athlete where one's hands are wrapped. The hand wrapping station is designed with a padded forearm rest and a seat specifically designed for a straddle position to allow the fighter to sit comfortably while their trainer wraps their hands using a convenient tool drawer to store and lay out various tools and supplies, such as tape, gauze, scissors and the like. The cushioned chair provides comfort and stability for the fighter as they get their hands wrapped.

Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims the benefit of priority of U.S. provisional application No. 61/620,282, filed Apr. 4, 2012, the contents of which are herein incorporated by reference.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to hand wrapping stations and, more particularly, to a portable hand wrapping station or chair for boxers, mixed martial artists or any combat sport athletes.
  • The current way of wrapping hands is makeshift and impractical. A trainer typically must duct tape a towel to the back of a chair where the fighter's forearms rest while his hands are wrapped. The towel often shifts out of place and the chair is not always comfortable to straddle. The trainer must also find a clean surface to lay out his tools of the trade, such as tape, gauze, scissors and the like. This method is time consuming, unstable and inconvenient.
  • As can be seen, there is a need for a hand wrapping station that is easy to use while providing a stable and comfortable layout for both the fighter and the trainer.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • In one aspect of the present invention, a hand wrapping station comprises an extended seat portion; first and second sets of legs pivotably attached at a first end of the extended seat portion; front folding legs attached to a second, opposite end of the extended seat portion; a back member extending above the first end of the extended seat portion; and a top pad disposed along a top edge of the back member.
  • In another aspect of the present invention, a hand wrapping station comprises an extended seat portion; first and second sets of legs pivotably attached at a first end of the extended seat portion; a back member extending above the first end of the extended seat portion; a top pad disposed along a top edge of the back member; a drawer guide box disposed under at least a portion of the extended seat portion; and a drawer extendable from the drawer guide box in a direction away from the front folding legs to provide access to contents disposed in the drawer.
  • In a further aspect of the present invention, a portable hand wrapping station comprises an extended seat portion; a seat pad disposed on the extended seat portion; first and second sets of legs pivotably attached at a first end of the extended seat portion; front folding legs attached to a second, opposite end of the extended seat portion; a back member extending above the first end of the extended seat portion; a top pad disposed along a top edge of the back member; a drawer guide box disposed under at least a portion of the extended seat portion; and a drawer extendable from the drawer guide box in a direction away from the front folding legs to provide access to contents disposed in the drawer.
  • These and other features, aspects and advantages of the present invention will become better understood with reference to the following drawings, description and claims.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of a hand wrapping station according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention;
  • FIG. 2 is a rear perspective view of the hand wrapping station of FIG. 1;
  • FIG. 3 is a top view of the hand wrapping station of FIG. 1, illustrated with the drawer in the open position; and
  • FIG. 4 is a cross-sectional view of the hand wrapping station, taken along line 4-4 of FIG. 1.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The following detailed description is of the best currently contemplated modes of carrying out exemplary embodiments of the invention. The description is not to be taken in a limiting sense, but is made merely for the purpose of illustrating the general principles of the invention, since the scope of the invention is best defined by the appended claims.
  • Broadly, an embodiment of the present invention provides a portable hand wrapping station that provides a durable and practical solution for a trainer to wrap a fighter's hands. The hand wrapping station can be used by boxers, mixed martial artists, or any sports athlete where one's hands are wrapped. The hand wrapping station is designed with a padded forearm rest and a seat specifically designed for a straddle position to allow the fighter to sit comfortably while their trainer wraps their hands using a convenient tool drawer to store and lay out various tools and supplies, such as tape, gauze, scissors and the like. The cushioned chair provides comfort and stability for the fighter as they get their hands wrapped.
  • Referring now to FIGS. 1 through 4, a portable hand wrapping station can be designed similar to a folding chair, having a first set of legs 22 attached to a back member 26 of the chair. A second set of legs 28 can be pivotably attached to the first set of legs 22. An extended seat portion 10 can be pivotably attached to the first and second set of lets 22, 28. A seat pad 12 is disposed on the extended seat portion 10. The hand wrapping station can be folded, like a folding chair, to provide portability.
  • A set of front folding legs 24 can be provided on a distal end of the extended seat portion 10 to help support the extended seat portion 10 during use of the hand wrapping station.
  • A top pad 14 can be applied along an upper edge of the back member 26 of the hand wrapping station. The top pad 14 can provide comfort to a user's forearms when sitting in the hand wrapping station, straddling the extended seat portion 10, facing the back member 26. During use, the fighter can place their forearms over the top pad 14 and the trainer can prepare the fighter's hands by wrapping and the like.
  • A drawer guide box 18 can be provided under at least a portion of the extended seat portion 10. A drawer 16 can fit into and extend from the drawer guide box 18. A handle 20 can be provided on the drawer 16 to allow for easy opening and closing of the drawer 16. The drawer 16 can be pulled open, generally parallel to the extended seat portion 10, in a direction away from the front folding legs 24. The drawer 16 can be designed to hold tools and supplies for the trainer, such as tape, scissors, gauze, and the like.
  • In some embodiments, hooks can be provided on the hand wrapping station, such as on the back member 26, for example, to provide a location for the trainer to hang tape and scissors during a wrap job.
  • In some embodiments, the extended seat portion 10 can be designed with a width that provides a comfortable straddle seating for the fighter. Typically, the extended seat portion 10 can be designed to be from about 2 feet to about 4 feet long, typically about 3 feet long, and from about 8 to about 16 inches wide, for example.
  • The hand wrapping station can be designed from materials known in the art, including plastic, metal, composite and the like. The top pad 14 can be made from various materials that can provide comfort and support to a fighter's forearms when resting thereupon, such as foam rubber, foam urethane, memory foam, or the like.
  • It should be understood, of course, that the foregoing relates to exemplary embodiments of the invention and that modifications may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as set forth in the following claims.
