BEDSTEAD.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented March 5, 1907.

ADDIGMOH led October 29, 1903. Renewed February 6, 1907. Serial No. 356,098.

To all whom it may concern/r Be it known that I, NELLIE B. NOBLE, of Ithaca, in the county of Tompkins and State of New York, have invented a certain new and useful Bedstead, of which the following is a specification.

My invention has for its object the pro'- duction of an attachment for beds which is particularly simple in construction, is especially applicable for use by physicians and nurses in the treatment of patients and invalids, and facilitates the ready removal from the bed of the person being treated g and to this end the invention consists in the combinations and constructions hereinafter fully set forth, and pointed out in the claims.

In describing this invention reference is had to the accompanying drawing, in which like characters designate corresponding parts in all the views.

Figure 1 is a perspective of a bed and a preferable embodiment of my attachment, partly broken away, operatively connected thereto. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the movable frame and the flexible supporting means or canvas sheet of my attachment, upright parts of the bed being indicated by dotted lines. Fig. 3 is aperspective veiw of the means shown in full lines in Fig. 2, a portion of the rubber sheet being also illustrated. Figs. 4 and 5 are respectively plan and edge views of one end of the movable frame of my attachment. Figs. 6 and 7 are respectively side and end elevations of a portion of the bedstead or supporting-frame equipped with my attachment. Fig. 8 is a plan of the detached rubber sheet.

My attachment is here illustrated as operatively connected to a metallic bedstead 1, having opposite separated uprights 2 3 at its ends comprising vertical standards and upper and lower cross-rails extending between the same; but it will be understood that any other suitable supporting-frame may be used instead of the bedstead 1.

The preferable embodiment of my invention comprises a movable frame 4, supporting means 5 6, and means for moving the frame 4 relatively to the bedstead or supportingframe 1 and holding the frame 4 in its adjusted position. Said frame 4 and the supporting means 5 6 form, essentially, a movable supprot, upon which the patient or invalid lies.

The frame 4 usually comprises side bars 7 and outer and inner cross-bars 8 9 10 11, op-

posing surfaces of the extremities of the side bars being separated a greater distance than the end surfaces of the uprights 2 3 and normally arranged outside of said end surfaces and the outer and inner cross-bars 8 9 10 11 being, respectively, in close proximity to the outer and inner surfaces of the uprights 2 3, the outer side surfaces of the inner cross-bars 10 1 1 being separated from the inner side surfaces of the outer cross-bars 8 9. It is thus apparent that the frame 4 is provided with openings in its ends between the extremities ofthe side bars 7 and the cross-bars S 9 10 11, which openings are of the full widths of the uprights 2 3, and receive saiduprights and permit vertical movement of the frame 4, and that the v'surfaces of the extremities of the side bars and the cross-bars forming the sides of said openings limit the movement of the frame 4 longitudinally and transversely or in a horizontal plane relatively to the bedstead or supporting-frame. Moreover, the portions of the movable frame, as the outer cross-bars and the ends of the side bars, proj ecting beyond the `contiguous outer surfaces of the bedstead, form hand-engaging means which facilitate the ready engagement of the frame 4 andthe removal of said frame as a whole from the bedstead 1. One of the inner cross-bars, as 11, is generally j ournaled in the adjacent extremities of the side bars 7, is movable endwise against the action of a spring 12, and is provided with a clutch-section 13, which engages with the clutch-section 14, fixed to one of the side bars 7. The cross-bar 11 may be revolved by a detachable handpiece or crank, (not illustrated,) is free to move endwise against the action of the spring 12 to permit movement of the clutchsection 13 relatively to the clutch-section 14, and is held in its adjusted position by the engagement of said clutch-sections 18 14. The passage of the movable frame 4 through doorways may be facilitated by providing intermediate portions of the cross-bars 8 9 10 11 with hinges 15 of any desirable construction, unnecessary to describe herein, capable of being locked from operation, so that the cross-bars may normally be as rigid as though unprovided with hinges; but said hinges 15 may be dispensed with, if desired.

As best seen in Figs. 1, 2, and 3, the supporting means 5 consists of a sheet of canvas or other suitable flexible material, having its sides provided with straps or other desirable fastening means for securing said sheet to IOO IIO

the side bars 7 and permitting the same to slide lengthwise of said bars. One end oi the supporting means 5 is provided with straps or fastening means secured to the inner cross-bar 10, and the other end thereof is suitably 'fastened to the cross-bar 11, which is revolved in opposite directions for tightening and loosening the supporting means 5. The supporting means 6 is composed of rubber or other waterproof material and is also provided with straps or other suitable means for securing the same to members of the frame 4. ln the illustrated construction of my invention the ends of the supporting means 5 6 are provided with securing-straps engaged with the outer cross-bars 8 9 of the frame 4 but it will be understood that these securing-straps may either be dispensed with or that the same must be disengaged from the cross-bars 8 9 whenever it is desired to remove the support for the patient or invalid from a supporting-frame 1 having top crossbars, as shown herein. The supporting means 6 preferably comprises a sheet or body portion having its longitudinal edges provided with inflatable portions which constitute marginal flanges and a substantially triangular-shaped pocket, from the apeX of which an exit-conduit 18 leads. This pocket preferably includes a `flat upper wall arranged in a plane coincident with the tops of the marginal flanges and a bottom wall substantially coincident with the body portion of the sheet and preferably formed by a continu ation of the latter. The exit-conduit 1S may be provided with a clamp 19 for shutting ott` or permitting 'l'low therethrough.

As best seen in Fig. 1, the means for varying the position of the movable support for the patient or invalid relatively to the bed- `stead or supporting-frame 'consists of independently-revoluble drums 20, journaled in said bedstead or supporting-frame, pulleys 21, detachably secured to the upper crossrails of the uprights 2 3, and flexible connections 22, having corresponding ends connected to the drums 20, their intermediate portions passed between the cross-bars 8 9 10 11 and over the pulleys 21 and their other ends detachably connected to the frame. The drums 20 may be revolved by any desirable handpieces detachably engaged therewith and may be held in their adjusted position by any suitable means, as ratchetwheels 23 and pawls 24.

In the use of my attachment the ends of the support for the patient or invalid may be raised or lowered independently relatively to the bedstead or supporting-frame l and may be readily detached from the 'flexible connections 22, whereupon the support as a whole and the patient lying thereupon may be easily raised above the bedstead or supporting-frame and then removed to an operating-room or other desired place. My attachment is particularly applicable for use in maternity cases or for convenience in bathing and immersion or when irrigation is necessary. Moreover, in some cases with a patient or invalid lying on the bed proper the movable frame 4 may be placed in position and the canvas sheet arranged beneath the patient or invalid and then fastened to the movable frame, whereupon the person may be raised as desired for facilitating changing of the bedclothes, airing of the bed, or the passage of a cooling current of air beneath the patient.

The construction and operation of my bedstead will now be readily understood upon reference to the foregoing description and the accompanying drawing, and it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that more or less change may be made in the component parts thereof without departing from the spirit of my invention.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
