United States Patent 2,772,881 r H EXERCISING APPARATUS :Earl H. Fundom, West Liberty, Ohio; Doris Jane Fundom, executrix of said Earl H. Fundom, deceased Application January 21,- 1954, Serial No. 405,276 '1. I Cl ims,

pjrovisionof an apparatus designed forexercising the joints and muscles of a patients bodyeven though he may be bedridden or seated ina wheel chair so that the patient may obtain the necessary exercise for conditioning all portions of his body. a

.The construction of this invention features means 10 to any suitable surface. In lieu of utilizing the suction cups 16 there is provided a suitable bed rail clamp 18 which is attached to the base and which is utilized for attaching the exercising apparatus to the bed rail 20 of a bed 22 in the manner as is best shown in Figure 6. A socket 22 within which there is secured an arcuate upwardly extending handle 24 for carrying the exercising apparatus 10 is provided, the handle 24 also serving as a spacing rib or support for any cover for the exercising apparatus 10. i

.The base 12 is provided with a pair of elongated slots 26 and 28 therethrou gh. Rotatably mounted on a pair of shafts 30 within the confines of the base 12 are a pair of pulleys 32 about which an endless belt 34 is entrained. The bight portions of the belt 34 are in alignbolts 46, wing nuts 48 which pass through the mountwhereby a patient may readily exercise his limbs to the U extent which he is capable, the, device being designed to be utilized to obtain a'stroke of such length as the invalid is capable thereby enabling progressive exercising of defective muscles due to paralysis and the like. Additionally, limb supports are incorporated and used in conjunction with pedals and hand control arms to thereby enable'a patientto exercise his limbswhile they are being suitably supported.

Still further objects andfeatures of this invention reside in the provision of an exercising apparatus that may be readily attachedto the bed rail of a hospital bedhr the like, which is strong and durable, simple in construction and manufacture, having a minimum number of moving parts thereby assuring substantially fool-proof operation, and which is inexpensive to produce thereby permitting wide distribution.

These, together with the various ancillary objects an features of the invention which will become apparent as the following description proceeds, are attained by this exercising apparatus, a preferred embodiment of which has been illustrated in the accompanying drawings, by way of example only, wherein: Figure 1 is a perspective view of the exercising apparatus according to the present invention;

Figure 2 is a top plan view of this device; a

Figure 3 is a side elevational view of the exercising apparatus with parts thereof being broken away to show all of the parts in greater detail; 7

Figure 4 is a verticalsectional view as taken along the plate of line 4-4 in Figure 3; V.

Figure 5 is a sectional detail view as taken along the plane 55 of Figure 3;

Figure 6 is an elevational view illustrating the manner in which the device may be readily secured to the rail of a bed; and

Figure 7 is a sectional detail view illustrating the telescoping construction of the limb support standards. With continuing reference to the accompanying drawings wherein like reference numerals designate similar parts throughout the variousviews, reference numeral 2 10 generally designates theexercising apparatus comprising the present invention which is constructed upon a base 12 having a plurality of ears 14 depending there from to which there are attached suction cups 16 for use. in attaching and securing the exercising apparatus ing plates 50 and 52 pinned as at 54 and 56 or otherwise attached to the pedals 42 and 44.

The pedal 42 carries a spaced pair of ears 58 to which a lower section 60 of a hand control arm is attached. Likewise the pedal 44 carries ears 62 to which a hand control arm section 64 is pivotally mounted. Cylindrical'telescoping sections 66 and 68 are adjustably securedon the control arm sections 60 and 64 by means of fasteners 70 and72 respectively. In the embodiment of the invention as shown only in Figures land 7 there are provided a pair of outwardly extending mounting members 74 and 76 adjacent the rear of the base 12 and secured thereto. 7 The mounting members providebearing supports for standard sections 78 and 80 which have telescoping standard sections 8 2 and 84 adjustably attached thereto by means of fasteners 86, the standard sections 82 and 84 being slidable over the sections 78 and 80. Adjustably attached to the standards 82 and 84 as by fasteners 88 are straps 90 and 92 which are adapted to be arranged in encompassing relationship about a limb of a patient using this exercising apparatus.

The operation of this exercising apparatus actually is quite simple. approximately the full length of the slots 26 and 28. It is not necessary that the" pedals 42 and 44 complete a stroke of any given length before the return stroke can be initiated. This enables patients in varying degrees of incompacities to obtain satisfactory exercise fromthis device. By the patient or invalid applying 7 attached to a bed rail or to a supporting surface such as a floor, the device is able to be utilized by either a bedridden patient or by one in a wheel chair.

Since from the foregoing the construction and ad.-

The pedals have a stroke ranging up to edonsaid clamp members. I V
