While the operation of the prone body hoist has been described in detail in connection with a mortuary establishment, it is obvious that it may be used to advantage in a hospital for the purpose of removing a human body from a hospital bed or operating table and transporting it to another location. Additionally, the hoist is susceptible of use in connection with devices or containers in or on which the humanbody is disposed as a stretcher, casket, vault or thel like. For the latter purposes the several harness members 21, 28 and 3l may beslung around the container to be moved and then engaged with their respective straps and upon operation of the motor the stretcher, casket or the like can be elevated or lowered and, while being carried, the entire assemblage may be wheeled to any desired location. In the use of the improved hoist it is obvious that the same requires the attention of but a single operator.

In the drawings, the open framework is shown in its extended, operative condition. If it is desired to collapse the framework for storage or handling, it is merely necessary to remove the pins which join the complementary sections of the longitudinal frame members I2, 42 and 43. Then, through the telescoping of these frame members, one of the end standards may be pushed toward its companion end standard to thus temporarily shorten the assemblage for more convenient storage, it being understood that the anchorages for the spools on the upper frame members are also removed to permit the spools to slide.

From the foregoing description it will be evident that the vimproved prone body hoist is of simple and novel construction, is easy to operate, provides for the moving of a prone human body without disturbing the latter, and is well adapted for the purposes set forth.

What is claimed as the invention is:

1. A hoist for a prone human body, comprising a portable, open framework, an elevator, means vertically movably mounting said elevator in one end portion of said framework, a head support angularly adjustably carried by said elevator,

laterally spaced shafts revolubly mounted longitudinally of the upper portion of said framework, a plurality of body supporting harness members spacedly depended fro-m portions of said shafts and adapted to be wound and unwound relative thereto, motion transmitting means operatively connected with said shafts and with said elevator,v and power means engaging said motion transmitting means for simultaneously moving said elevator and revolving said shafts in synchrony.

2. A hoist for a prone human body, comprising a portable, open framework, an elevator, means vertically movably mounting said elevator in one end portion of said framework, a head support angularly adjustably carried by said elevator, laterally spaced shafts revolubly mounted longitudinally of the upper portion of said framework, a plurality of body supporting harness members spacedly depended from portions of said shafts and adapted to be wound and unwound relative thereto, a power shaft in driving engagement with the first-mentioned shafts and said elevator, and electric motor means for driving said power shaft.

3. A'prone body hoist, comprising an open framework including top longitudinal revoluble shafts and vertical corner posts, pairs of spaced spools carried by said shafts to turn therewith, body engaging harness members depended from said spools to be wound and unwound relative thereto, a head support vertically movably mounted vonone of said corner posts, and means extending to both said head support and said revoluble shafts for'operating the head support and spools simultaneously and in synchrony.

Y 4. A mechanical hoist for a prone human body,

comprising vertical end standards, telescopic top longitudinal frame members spacedlyy connecting said end standards, a pair of said longitudinal vframe members being journalled in said end standards for rotation, bottom longitudinal frame members detachably associated with said end standards, said end standards and all of said longitudinal frame mem-bers constituting an open framework, pairs of spaced spools adjustably mounted on saidrrotatable longitudinal frame members to turn therewith, body engaging flexible slings depended from said spools to be wound and unwound relative thereto, an elevator, means vertically movably mounting said elevator in one of said end standards, a head support angularly adjustably carried by said elevator, motion transmitting means operatively connected with said rotatable longitudinal frame members andwlth said elevator; and means engaging said motion transmitting means for operating the elevator and said rotatable longitudinal frame members simultaneously.

5. A mechanical hoist for a yprone human body, comprising vertical end standards, telescopic topr longitudinal framel members spacedly connecting said end standards, a pair of said longitudinal frame members being journalled in said end standards for rotation, bottom longitudinal frame mem-bers detachably associated with said end standards, said end standards and all of said longitudinal frame members constituting an open framework, pairs of spaced spools adjustably mounted on spaced-apart portions of said rotatable longitudinal frame members to turn therewith and movable with said longitudinal frame members when the latter are telescopically adjusted, body engaging flexible slings depended from said spools to be wound and unwound relative thereto, and power means for revolving said rotatable longitudinal frame members in either direction.
