Patented Mar. 15, 1949 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE STABLE HEADREST Richard J. Conradt, Rochester, N. Y.
Application October 10, 1946, Serial No. 702,446
1 Claim.
1 My present invention relates to an improved headrest of the type adapted to be mounted upon the back of a chair or other seat such as in railroad cars, buses and the like.
The headrest of my invention consists generally in a cushioned frame having a mounting harness and the side pieces of the frame are formed with pockets to receive earphones of the radio type so that the person using the same may do so without annoying other persons nearby.
In the accompanying drawings I have illustrated one complete example of the physical embodiment of my invention according to the best mode I have thus far devised, but it will be understood that various changes and alterations may be made in the exemplified structure within the scope of the appended claim.
In the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a front elevational view.
Fig. 2 is a top plan view.
Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional View.
Fig. 4 is a rear elevational view partially in section.
Fig. 5 is an end elevational View.
Fig. 6 is a sectional View at line i-G of Fig. 4.
Fig. 7 is a perspective View of one side piece, and
Fig. 8 is a front perspective View of center section.
Referring now to the drawings, I have illustrated the preferred embodiment of my invention as comprising a center section having a wire frame 2-4 formed with end loops B. A cushion 8 of sponge rubber preferably is covered with suitable cloth I and the loops 6 are disposed at the ends of spacer tube I2 on the bolts I4 secured by wing nuts I6 over washers I8.
Side pieces are formed of wire frames in U-shape the ends of which are looped at 22 for positioning on the bolts I4 and the frame is cushioned with sponge rubber 8 and covered with cloth I0.
Belt 24 is provided with straps 26 disposed about the spacers I2 and the belt is provided with a buckle 28 for adjustment about the back 30 of a chair or seat. Straps 32 having buckles 34 provide vertical adjustable support for the belt. In Figs. 4 and 5 I have shown a modified form of support including the wire yokes 36 supported by loops 38 on the tubes I2 in lieu of the straps 26.
The rear faces of the side pieces are formed 2 with cloth pockets 46 covering the rear open ends of passages 42 and into these pockets I place radio earphones so that the sounds therefrom may pass through the openings or passages 42 to the ears of the user. Tapes 44 diagonally positioned across the rear of the side pieces and over the pocket insure the maintenance of the earphones in the pockets.
Thus the side pieces may be adjustably posi tioned and secured angularly of the center cushion to prevent rolling of the head while the user sleeps and the vertical position of the entire device may be adjusted about the supporting chair back.
The headrest will prove valuable in use on bus or railroad car seats and elsewhere where suitable to provide comfortable head support.
Having thus fully described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
In a head rest, a central cushion comprising a frame embodying spaced parallel wire members, loops formed at the ends of the Wire members, angularly disposed side cushions including U- shaped wire frames, loops at the free ends of the wire frames, the loops of the central cushion being disposed adjacent to the loops of the frames of the adjustable side cushions, bolts extending through the adjacent loops of the central and side cushions pivotally connecting the central and side cushions, spacing tubes through which said bolts extend, the spacing tubes being disposed between the loops of the central cushion frame and loops of the side cushion frames securing the frames against collapsing, cushioning members secured to the cushion frames, and means for supporting the head rest upon the back of a chair.
RICHARD J. CONRADT.
