Description

    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 61/915,763, filed Dec. 13, 2013, which is incorporated herein by reference as if fully set forth.
  • FIELD OF INVENTION
  • This application is generally related to a device for supporting an individual and more particularly related to supporting a standing individual.
  • BACKGROUND
  • Many individuals suffer from back pain, which is usually either chronic or injury related. Back pain can be caused by a variety of medical conditions, i.e. strain, herniated discs, sciatica, and spinal stenosis. Back pain can be particularly severe when an individual is sitting in a traditional chair with a flat sitting surface. The flat sitting surface can cause back pain or discomfort.
  • Recent studies have indicated that sitting for prolonged periods of time, particularly at a desk, can have adverse health effects. Further, other studies have indicated that standing can increase work productivity and efficiency.
  • Known solutions for addressing lower back pain caused by sitting include exercise ball chairs, lumbar supports, standing desks, kneeling chairs, and reclining chairs. None of these known devices provide both alleviation of pressure on the lower back and a restful support.
  • SUMMARY
  • It would be desirable to provide a support device that alleviates lower back pain and is comfortable.
  • An adjustable support apparatus including a base with horizontal support members is provided. The adjustable support apparatus includes a first upright support member of a first predetermined height that is supported at one end thereof on one of the horizontal support members, and an other end of the first upright support member has a first support that is generally parallel to the one of the horizontal support members. A second upright support member is supported at one end thereof on a second one of the horizontal support members, and an other end of the second upright support member has a second support that is generally parallel to the second one of the horizontal support members.
  • Preferred arrangements with one or more features of the invention are described below and in the claims.

  • The second upright support member 120 and the second post 146 include a plurality of holes similar to the plurality of holes 140, 142 and similar to the configuration of the first upright support member 112 and the first post 130. In one embodiment, the plurality of holes 140, 142 are spaced one inch apart from each other and each of the plurality of holes 140, 142 includes between 20-40 holes.
  • The first upright support member 112 includes a first mounting portion 154 and the third horizontal support member 108 includes a base mounting portion 156. A third adjustment mechanism 158 includes at least one adjustment shaft 160 having a first end 162 pivotally connected to the first mounting portion 154, and a second end 164 pivotally connected to the base mounting portion 156, such that a length (Ls) of the at least one adjustment shaft 160 is adjustable between the first mounting portion 154 and the base mounting portion 156. The length (Ls) adjustments results in the angle between the first upright support member 112 and the third horizontal support member 108. In one embodiment, similar to the one shown in FIG. 1, the at least one adjustment shaft 160 includes a single shaft. In another embodiment, the third adjustment mechanism 158 includes two adjustment shafts 160 a, 160 b. In one embodiment, the third adjustment mechanism 158 includes a turnbuckle.
  • As shown in FIG. 8, a third upright support member 166 is preferably positioned adjacent to the second upright support member 120. The third upright support member 166 includes a third opening 168 in which a first end 172 of a third post 170 is slidably supported, and a second end 174 of the third post 170 includes a pivoting connection to a support surface 176. The second end 174 of the third post 170 is shown in phantom lines in FIG. 8. The support surface 176 is preferably 36 inches wide and 24 inches long. The support surface 176 is configured to serve as a standing desk support surface for a user for items such as a computer, textbooks, etc. The third upright support member 166 preferably has a height (h3) that is less than the height (h1) of the first upright support member 112 and is greater than the height (h2) of the second upright support member 120. The third post 170 has an adjustable height (htp) with respect to the third upright support member 166. In one embodiment, the total minimum height of the support surface 176 is 40 inches. This height is shown in FIG. 8 as the combined height of h3 and htp and consists of the height of the third upright support member 166 and the third post 170 in its lowest position within the third upright support member 166.
  • Although the embodiment shown in FIGS. 7 and 8 include manual adjustment mechanisms, in one embodiment, the adjustment mechanisms are automatic or motorized, and include a central control panel for adjusting the height of the various posts within the upright support members. The adjustment mechanism can include an actuator, such as a hydraulic actuator. In another embodiment, a central control panel includes height settings, such as five-feet, six inches, which allows a user to program in their height, and allows the height of the components of the adjustable support device to automatically adjust based on the user's height. The settings can also adjust the degree of offset between the first upright support member 112 and the support member 108 via the adjustment mechanism 158.
  • All of the pivoting connections between the components described above allow the components to fold into one another, allowing the entire adjustable support device to be folded compactly in place.
  • Although the materials for specific components have been described above, one of ordinary skill in the art recognizes that the material for all of the components can alternate. In one embodiment, the components for the base 102 can be formed from steel, wood, or plastic. In one embodiment, the components for the upright members 112, 120, and 170 can also be formed from steel, wood, or plastic.
  • In use, the user places their feet on the foot plate 110 and rests their back against first support 118. The user raises the first post 130 within the first opening 128 of the first upright support member 112 and uses the first adjustment mechanism 136 to adjust the height of the first post 130 within the first upright support member 112. The user can adjust the angle of the first upright support member 112 with respect to the base 102 via the third adjustment mechanism 158. The user rests their shins against the second support 126. The user performs a similar adjustment of the second post 146 within the second upright support member 120 as described above with respect to the first adjustment mechanism 136.
  • Having thus described various embodiments of the present adjustable support device in detail, it will be appreciated and apparent to those skilled in the art that many changes, only a few of which are exemplified in the detailed description above, could be made in the adjustable support device according to the invention without altering the inventive concepts and principles embodied therein. The present embodiments are therefore to be considered in all respects as illustrative and not restrictive, the scope of the invention being indicated by the appended claims rather than by the foregoing description, and all changes which come within the meaning and range of equivalency of the claims are therefore to be embraced therein.
