HENRY B. WATSON, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

LEG- .AND FOOT REST.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Sept. 1'7, 1907.

7 '0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that l, HENRY B. WATSON, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Leg and Foot Rests, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in foot and leg rests, and particularly to foot and leg rests that are adapted to be made in one piece or a plurality of pieces and folded and applied to any convenient object.

The invention comprises the production of a board, and means for securing the same to any desired object.

The invention further comprises the production of a board that may be folded, and having means for holding the folding part at any desired angle, and a hooked rod for holding the device in position.

The object in view is the production of a foot and leg rest that may be folded and carried from place to place and applied toa chair, or the like, ready for use without the use of tools.

Another object in view is the production of a foot and leg rest that is easily applied to chairs, and the like, that may be positioned as anentirety at any angle or may have one end thereof secured and positioned at a different angle from the rest.

With these and other objects in view, the invention comprises certain novel constructions, combinations and arrangements of parts as will be hereinafter more clearly described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings:-Figure 1 is a perspective view of a chair with my invention applied thereto. Fig. 2 is an edge view of a foot and leg rest formed according to the present invention. Fig. 3 is a bottom view of a foot and leg rest formed according to the present invention.

In constructing a foot and leg rest according to the present invention, I provide a board 1 formed with a plurality of holes or apertures 2 of any desired number for accommodating and securing hook 3. Hook 3 is preferably made from any strong wire and is formed with a crank shaped portion 4 at one end and a hook shaped portion 5 at the opposite end. The crank shaped portion 4 is designed to be inserted through one of the apertures 2 and the hook portion 5 is designed to hook over any desired object, as, for instance, the back of a chair, as seen in Fig. 1. On the outer end of board 1, I pivotally mount a second board 6 and secure the same in place by any desired kind of hinges 7. The boards 1 and 6 are preferably beveled at 8 and 9 so as to permit the outer board 6 to be lowered to any desired angle downward, and, of course, it will be evident that the hinges 7 will permit the outer board 6 to be adjusted at any desired angle upward to a horizontal plane. By

this construction the outer board or rest 6 may be positioned for holding the feet in any desired position. In order to hold the outer member or board 6 in any desired position, I provide a rack 10 rigidly secured to the lower side thereof which is designed to accommodate a brace 11 as clearly seen in Figs. 2 and 3. Brace 11 engages at one end with rack 10 and at the other end is I journaled in board or member 1 at 12.

backward against a wall, or any stationary object, so as to further raise the feet. By thus providing a device for holding the feet elevated at any desired angle the same are relieved from the weight of the body, while the superincumbent weight of the body keeps the innor end of the board well in place, and by positioning the same at an elevation the muscles will relax and consequently permit the feet and legs to thoroughly rest.

When the device is not in operation the same may be folded by disengaging brace 11 from rack 10 and folding the same down upon the bottom of board 1. Suitable grooves as 13 and 14 are provided for accommodating the ends of brace 11 so as to permit the brace to lie snugly against the bottom of board 1. If desirable the ends 12 of brace 11 may be pivotally mounted in suit able bearings at any desired point along the bottom or underside of board 1 instead of having the same journaled in apertures formed in board 1. When the ends 12 are journaled in bearings that are positioned on the lower side of board 1 grooves 13 and 14 are unnecessary.

In ordinary use I find that member 3 may be simply constructed as shown and have one end inserted through one of apertures 2 and then extend rearward to the edge of the chair as seen in Fig. 1 but sometimes I find it desirable to provide a groove 15 of a sufficient depth to accommodate member 3 so that the same will not be felt by the person using the device. This will provide a foot and leg rest that possesses many advantages in that it will hold the feet and legs of a person in an elevated position and at an angle when the chair to which the device is applied is tilted or leaned against a wall or any stationary object. The omission of the movable member 6 and mechanism connected therewith will form a cheaper device, but ordinarily a movable member as 6 is preferable as it permits the feet and lower part of the legs to be positioned at a different angle from the remaining part of the legs and body. Therefore, I

desire to have it understood that I may use either form, as the same comes Within the spirit of the present in.- vention.

Having thus fully described my invention What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is A device of the character described, comprising a stationary member formed with apertures therein, a rod engaging said apertures for holding said stationary member in position, a hinged member mounted on one end of said stationary member, a rack secured to the bottom of 10 said hinged member, a bracket secured to said stationary member, said bracket being adapted to engage said rack for holding said hinged member at various angles.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.

HENRY B. WATSON.
