SEBASTIAN LAY, OF LA PORTE, INDIANA.

HEAD-REST.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 245,639, dated August 16, 1881.

Application filed February 18,1881. (No model.)

To all whom tt may concern:

Be it known that I, SEBASTIAN LAY, of La Porte, in the county of La Porte and State of Indiana, haveinvented certain Improvements in Head-Rests, of which the following is a specification.

In this invention I have devised a portable device whereby the forehead may be supported when the user leans forward, and, in combination therewith, a support for the arms, so that the forward inclination of the body may be rendered easy and comfortable, and at the same time the device be steadied without being affixed stationarily to the seat. It is designed more especially for night travel in railroad-oars, but may be used by invalids and others who cannot rest by reclining backward or lying down.

The device consists, when briefly stated, in a cushioned rest, suitable to receive the forehead, and a standartbeither single or double, supporting the same from the door.

It also consists in the combination, with this rest and standard, of a suitable platform or rest for the arms, whereby the device is steadied and the weight of the body in the forward posture is taken from the head and devolved upon the arms.

The accompanying drawings show, at Figure l, the device in use; at Fig. 2, a back View of the device; at Fig. 3, a section through the head-rest and its fastening to the standard, and at Fig.4 a section ofthe supporting-standard.

In the drawings, A A A2 are telescoping sections of tubing, which form the standard of iny device. The lower one is preferably provided with a blunt point at the bottom to prevent slipping upon the door or carpet. The sections of the standard are adjustable within each other, and are held, when adjusted, by the spring-catches a, entering perforations a', the former upon the larger section, A or A', and the latter in the smaller section, A or A2. Upon the other side from the catch a. is another catch, a2, designed to enter a groove or slot in the smaller section of the standard, so that the sliding of the one section within the other may be without any turning or twisting, the perforations a being thus kept in line with the catch a. One side of this groove or slotis shown at a2.

In Fig. 4, I have illustrated the adjustability of the sections A and A; but the same ligure shows that of sections A and A2, as the con- The head-rest is detachably held to its hing` ing device b as follows: Aplate, d, is provided with two ears, c, which project down and are pierced to receive the pivot of theV hinge, as shown at Fig. 3. vWhen the headrest is applied to the standard this plate cl is slipped between two overlapping and retaining pieces, d, secured to the hack of the headrest and positioned to lit said plate. The armrest is also detachably secured upon the standard by means of 4a similar plate, d, upon the standard and similar overlapping plates d upon the rest. This latter plate d is perforated, as is also the arm-restitself, to permit the passage ofthe section A2.

The arm-rest is secured by its fastenihgs, which are located upon section A of the standard, before section A2 is inserted within said section A', and removed after said section A2 is withdrawn.

The method of usingthedeviceis fully shown in Fig. l.

A double standard, adapted to span the lap of the user, may be used, if desired; or the standard may be constructed with a forked lower portion, which may span the lap in like manner. The arm-rest may be provided with devices whereby it may be inclined to suit the fancy or ease of the owner. All th ese changes are within the spirit of my invention.

The device may also be used with the body in an erect or slightly back of the erect posture by simply inelining the head forward, vas the standard permits use either at an incline or vertical position.

To hold the rests upon their dovetail fastenings, above described, I provide them with side spring-actuated catches, m, as shown in Fig. 3, or equivalent devices.

Vhen not in use the apparatus may be taken apart and packed away in Compact form.

I claim- A standard extending upward from the oor', a forehead-rest at the top, and an arm-rest; at the Center of the standard, all combined and constructed substantiallyas shown, and adapted to sustain the Weight; of a person leaning thereon.

SEBASTIAN LAY. Witnesses:

EVERETT BROWN, EDW. S. EVARTS.
