EXERCISER DEVICE Filed Jan. 30, 1956 MCI/45L 6000M? #482? 50LL 0/07 INVENTORS W 5770NV5 United States Patent EXERCISER DEVICE Harry Solloway, 940% N. Doheny Drive, Los Angeles 26, Calif., and Michael Goodman, 1525 N. Van Ness Ave, Los Angeles 28, Calif.
Filed Jan. 30, 1956, Ser. No. 562,228
1 Claim. (Cl. 15-45) This invention relates to an adjustable and collapsible seating device and is particularly directed to an exerciser device.
An object of this invention is to provide a lightweight collapsible device which may be used in the manner of an exerciser chair or bed which is capable of tilting to difierent operative positions. Another object is to pro vide a device of this type which is capable of being folded into a very compact unit for transportation. Another object is to provide a device of this general type which may be employed as a beach chair when desired. Other and more particular objects and advantages will appear hereinafter.
Figure l is a perspective view showing a preferred embodiment of our invention.
Figure 2 is a side elevation showing the toggle action of the device.
Figure 3 is a sectional detail taken substantially on the lines 33 shown in Figure 2.
Figure 4 is a view illustrating the use of the device as a beach chair.
Figure 5 is a perspective view showing the device collapsed for transportation.
Referring to the drawings, there is provided a body supporting frame consisting of two sections 11 and 12 pivotally connected by means of pivot bolts 13, each section may conveniently take the form of tubular members 14 and 15 bent into the shape of a U and having a suitable covering 16 such as, for example, canvas. A pair of clamp elements 17 grip the tubular member 14 at locations between the pivot bolt 13 and the outer end of the member 12. Similarly, a pair of clamp elements 18 grip the tubular member 15 at locations between the pivot bolts 13 and the outer end of the member 11. Each clamp is connected with a pivot pin 19 to a tubular socket element 20. The socket elements on the member 11 may be connected by cross bar 21 and similarly the socket elements on the member 12 may be connected to a cross member 22.
Two U-shaped supporting brackets 23 are provided and each of these brackets includes a base member 24 havice ing upstanding legs 25 and 26 rising from the ends thereof. The legs 25 are shorter than the legs 26. The upper ends of the legs 25 and 26 project into sockets 27 provided on the tubular element 20. When the brackets 23 rest on a horizontal surface, the clamp elements 17 are held at a higher elevation than the clamp elements 18, as clearly shown in Figure 2, and in this way the back section 12 of the device 10 is supported at a greater inclination than the seat section 11.
The sum of the distances from the clamp element 18 to the pivot bolt 13 and from the pivot bolt 13 to the clamp element 17 is greater than the direct distance between the clamp elements 17 and 18, with the result that swinging of the sections 11 and 12 from the full line position shown in Figure 2 to the phantom line position shown in Figure 2 causes the legs 25 and 26 to spread resiliently for a suflicient distance to permit this toggle action to occur.
The upper ends of the legs 25 and 26 are telescopically received within the sockets 27 and this construction permits the legs 25 to be disconnected from their respective sockets 27 when desired, to permit the legs 26 to swivel within their respective sockets and assume the folded or collapsed position as shown in Figure 5. In this position, the base members 24 of the brackets 23 extend transversely of the device 10. The device thus folds to a substantially compact shape for transportation.
In Figure 4, the set section 11 is shown as resting on the ground while the back section 12 is supported in an inclined position by means of the brackets 23. The long legs 26 are mounted in sockets 20 extending from the clamp elements :17 while the short legs 25 are not received in their respective sockets. The brackets 23 extend transversely of the device 10.
This application constitutes a continuation in part of our co-pending application Serial No. 498,826 filed April 4, 1955, now abandoned.
Having fully described our invention, it is to be understood that we do not wish to be limited to the details herein set forth, but our invention is of the full scope of the appended claim.
We claim:
In combination, a body supporting frame consisting of two sections pivotally interconnected at the center of the frame, studs downwardly projecting from the side edges of the two sections intermediate the ends thereof, and two U-shaped supporting brackets, each bracket including a base member and legs rising from the ends thereof, the upper ends of the legs of each bracket being pivotally mounted on the studs at one side edge of the frame, the two frame sections having freedom of relative swinging movement on their pivotal interconnection and on the pivotal connection with the upper ends of the legs.
