-3 Claims. l

This invention relates to bed tables and the like.

Objects of the 'invention `include the provision of bed table mounted on 'a standard which in turn mounted on the bed -rail or similar support below a mattress and mattress support or spring; the provision or a bed table which adjusts for the convenience of the patient and which is mounted on a rod normally disposed 'horizontally over the bed in convenient posi-tion, the rod in turn being adjustably ymounted on a vertical standard secured to the bed rai-l, said standard being vertically adjustable and pivotable on a axis transverse to the bed rail so that the stan-dard may the bed rail so as to dispose 'the table in out of the way position adjacent .etherlthe head or the foot of the bed; or the standard may be swung under the mattress spring together with the table .and transverse rod on which the table is directly supported', without the necessity of moving the standard along the bed rail; the provision of a bed table as aforesaid in which the entire device is adjustable along the bed rail if desired as well as having the adjustments yand disposable features above set out. y

Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear hereinafter.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings in which: Y

l is a view in side elevation of a bed embodyng the present invention;

Fig. 2 is la View showing the bed table disposed in operative position over the bed;

3 shows how the `table is `disposable under the bed; 'and Fig. 4 shows a modiiication.

In Fig. l I have shown la bed having a head it, a foot i2. and a bed rail i4. A spring support I8 .and mattress 2Q are conventionally shown, the `aforementioned members all being conventional although vassuming many different forms besides those shown.

In the present instance the bed rail is shown as round in cross section and cooperating parts of the device are shown shaped to t this round bed rail. However, in the event that it is desired to use the present device with bed rails of different coniormations, it will be obvious to anyone skilled in the art that only mere mechanical changes would be necessary to adapt the par-ts to such other different forms of bed rails.

i' provide a two-part clamp 22 having a inember 25.4 for securing the two parts of the clamp to the bed rail lll as seen in Figs. 2 and 3. The

be swung down parallel with clamp 22 may be secured in any rotative position about the bed rail or in any longitudinal position thereon. A member 25 secured to clamp 22 provided and member r2li extends Afrom the clamp in position to rotatably mount a sleeve '255 on a pin 28, see Fig. 2. A set screw or the like is provided to secure sleeve 2S in desired rotative position relative to member 25. y Y

A standard SS is sli-dably disposed in sleeve 2S and may be secured in axially adjusted position with respect thereto by a, clamping device t2 such as a. set screw or thumb screw, etc. Adjacent one end or the standard Iyprovidea collar or iange 3ft and an angular projection 35 which carries a pivot 38 on which is swingably mounted a rod iii?. Rod fio swings relative to standard itl as indicated by the arrow in Fig. 2 and the rod is held in its -22V position by means of the collar or flange 34. '.the` free end of rod is adjustably mounts a table element 52 which may pivot as indicated by the short arrow in Fig. l, that is, table element d2 may rotate about rod di) asian axis. Any desired means may be utilized to hold the table element e2 in its desired position for purposes of illustration `a spline and slida-ble collar or clutch element device is conventionally shown for this purpose at lill. i

If it is desired to move the table from its operative position as shown in Fig. 2 to an out of the way position, it is merely necessary to loosen the clamp holding pin 28 and to rotate standard 3E) about the pin so as to dispose rod ed `and the table element etherat the foot or the head Vof the bed or the standard and tabl-e elementmay assume the dotted line position shown in Fig. i where the entire device is disposed beneath the bed rail. `On the other hand rod to may be swung about pin 38 -to a position parallel with standard 35, and then the entire unit may be swung about the bed rail to aposition completely `beneath the 'bed-as sho-wn in Fig. 3. *Some device may be used to maintain rod iii in this position, such as for instance a spring clip, not shown, or other conventional means. It will thus be seen that the bed table and its support may assume several different positions where it is out of the Way depending on which is most convenient; and also it has one position, that shown in Fig, 3, wherein the entire unit may be disposed completely under the bed where it extends out no further than the bed rail.

In Fig. 4 have shown a modification wherein a sleeve 5l? surrounds the bed rail 52 and mounts a sleeve 5d on a pivot pin A standard 58 having a iixed rod 6i) is slidable in sleeve 54 and pivotmuch more convenient and practical in its use and which may be disposed in out of the way position in several diierent places depending on the convenience of the operator. It may be adjusted along the bed rail from one end to the other of the bed and it may be disposed wholly beneath the bed. It is pointed out that various modications and variations may be used without departing from the scope of the invention, for instance bearings or rollers may be used to aid in sliding the device along the bed rai; different forms of clamps may be utikzed for diiierent types of bed rails and other clamping devices such as eccentrics, etc., may be used as well as set screws. Also, the standard may be set in a recess in the bed-rail and will thus be held upright without clamps, but must be removed to be stowed away although the arm 40 may be manipulated as described.

Having thus described my invention and the advantages thereof, I do not wish to be limited to the details herein disclosed, otherwise than as set forth in the claims, but what I claim is:

1. A bed table for a bed having a longitudinal rail and a mattress support above the bed rail, said table comprising a clamp on the bed rail, means to tighten and loosen said clamp, said clamp being rotatable about the bed rail in a plane transverse thereto, a member secured to the clamp, a sleeve on the member disposed at right angles to the bed rail, a standard in the sleeve for rotary and longitudinal adjustment therein, means to clamp the former to the latter in adjusted position, a laterally extending projection at one end of the standard, a pivot pin in the projection, said pin being spaced from the standard, a rod pivoted to the projection on the pin and being supported on the end of the standard for location at right angles thereto or selectively swingable on the pin through approximately threequarters of a turn to lie alongside of and parallel to the standard, a table element on the rod, and means providing for rotation of the table element on said rod as an axis.

2. A bed table for a bed having a longitudinal rail and a mattress support above the bed rail, said tabe comprising a clamp on the bed rail, means to tighten and loosen said clamp, said clamp being rotatable about the bed rail in a plane transverse thereto, a member secured to the clamp, a sleeve on the member disposed at Vsaid table comprising right angles to the bed rail, a standard in the sleeve for rotary and longitudinal adjustment therein, means to clamp the former to the latter in adjusted position, a. laterally extending projection at one end of the standard, a pivot pin in the projection, said pin being spaced from the standard, a rod pivoted to the projection on the pin and being supported on the end of the standard for location at right angles thereto or selectively swingable on the pin through approximately three-quarters of a turn to lie alongside of and parallel to the standard, a table element on the rod, means providing for rotation of the table element on said rod as an axis, said bed rail being circular in section and said clamp comprising a pair of opposed curved pieces tting the bed rail.

3. A bed table for a bed having a longitudinal rail and a mattress support above the bed rail, a clamp on the bed rail, means to tighten and loosen said clamp, said clamp being rotatable about the bed rail in a plane transverse thereto, a member secured to the clamp, a sleeve on the member disposed at right angles to the bed rail, a standard in the sleeve for rotary and longitudinal adjustment therein, means to clamp the former to the latter in adjusted position, a laterally extending projection at one end of the standard, a pivot pin in the projection, said pin being spaced from the standard, a rod pivoted to the projection on the pin and being supported on the end of the standard for location at right angles thereto or selectively swingable on the pin through approximately three-quarters of a turn to lie alongside of and parallel to the standard, a table element on the rod, and means providing for rotation of the table element on said rod as an axis, said sleeve being rotatory mounted on said member about an axis at right angles and offset from the bed rail.
