MOVEMENT-CURE APPARATUS. l

4 Speecation of Letters Patent. Patented July 19s 1910, Application led March 17, 1910. Serial No. 549,903.

To all whom. 'it may concern:

Be it known that I, THEonoR BDINGEN, a subject of the Grand Duke of Baden, and residing at 2 Glrnischstrasse, Constance, Germany, have invented certain new and useful Improvements. in Movement-Cure Apparatus; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention.

The movement cure-apparatus forming the subject-matter of my invention 1s for4 imparting the beneficial action of walking and ascending to the circulation of the blood of clinics, particularly those whose circulation requires promoting, as el g. those suffering from heart disease'. Tol this end, by

v means of suitable gearing two pendulum 14` and 15 in the faces thereof facing arms are oscillated which are so arranged that the suitably attached legs of a patient .located in a position of rest can be moved'.

Owing to the motion which is caused hereby', in consequence of the legs being lifted there 'is obtained, besides a pumping action,

a pressure action which is to be attributed to hydrostatic laws and which likewise promotes the circulation of the blood.

Une illustrative embodiment of my invention is represented by way of example in the accompanying drawing, wherein Figure 1 is a side elevation Fig. 2 a front elevation, and Fig. 3 a top plan view on an enlarged scale showing part of my appara'- tus; Figs. 4 to 8 show detailsl likewise on an enlarge cale.

Referring to the drawings, the entirel gearing is mounted on a frame comprising a base plate 1 and stays or uprights2, 3, 4 and 5' which approach one another at the top.

On the base plate 1 is secured by meansof screws or bolts 7, 8, 9, 10 a bearing 6 in which is journaled a shaft11 secured on `which are two cam-wheels 12 and 13, cf the form clearly shown invFig.' 4, having grooves one another. Projections 16 and 17 in w ich pivots 18 and 19 aresecured,.are cast on the base of the bearing 6. ulcrumed on these pivots are two levers 20 and 21r carrying short pivots 22 and 23 (Fi 4), on which are journaled rollers 24v an y ,25 which can -run 1n the grooves 14 and 15, respectively, of

the ycams 12 and 13, respectively. These cams or their grooves comprise a circular and an elliptical portion and are displaced 180C A relatively one to the other.- With the endsof the levers 20 and 21 connect-ing rods 26 and 27 are pivotally connected, whose top ends are pivotally connected with the arms 28 and 29 of two angle levers mounted to rock on a shaft 38 secured in the frame.

In order to be able to vary the point of application of the connectin -rods`26 and 27- e angle levers,

at the arms 28 and 29 of t the arms are forked and screws 30 and 31 are journaled in the forked portions (Fig. 8) and can be rotated by hand-wheels 32 and 33. On the screws are nuts 34 and '35 having lugs 36 (Fig. 8), to which the connecting-rods are pivoted. The other arms 39 and 40 of the angle levers are pivotally connected with additional connectin -rods 41 and 42 which are pivoted to pen ulum arms 43 and 44 .which oscillate on a shaft 45. This shaft is journaled in a support 'or bracket 46 which is formed yas a slide (Figs.

5 and 6)v and can be moved upward and downward on the'frame. To this end, a vshaft 47 yis journaled in the slide and carries at one end a hand-wheel 48 and at the other end a pinion 49 meshing with a rack 50 secured on the frame. By turning thehandwheel 48 the inion 49 is caused to roll on the rack 50 ang the slide is moved. ln order to secure it in position for the time being, a locking device e. g. a clamping screw 51, is provided (Fig. 5) which carries aehandle 52 and can'be pressed against the face 53 of the slide 46 by turning the handle. At tom ends of the pendulum arms 43 and 44 are rovided pivoted attachment-devices for the egs.l These comprise shoes 73 adapted to the shape of the foot and having pivoted thereto rods 78 to which bandages 79 and 8O are secured.

Loose on the shaft 11 and in immediate proximity to the cam-wheel 12 is a wormwheel 37 meshin with a worm thereunder which is journa ed in bearings 55 and 56 and driven by an electric motor 57. Adjacent to the worm-wheel 53 is a clutch 58 which is movable axially on the shaft 11 but `prevented from rotating relatively to the shaft. On the outside end of the shaft 11 is a loose sprocket wheel 5.9, tol which a rotatory motion can be im arted by means of a chain 62 from a sproc et wheel `6l which is journaled vin `the frame and carries a -handle 60. When the clutch is moved in the one or other direction its teeth 63 coact with the teeth 64v of the worm wheel 53 or with the teeth 65 of the sprocket wheel 59.

the boina,

In orderto be able to secure the apparatus to a bed or the like, attached to the base plate 1 is a frame 66 in which two shafts 67 and 68 are journaled. These shafts are provided at their ends projecting beyond the frame 66 with handles 87 and 88, by which they can be turned. Secured on the shaft 67 are jaws 69, on whose outer ends are mounted pieces 70 (Fig. 7) ofsoft material, as india-rubber or leather, while their bottom ends each carry a catch or detent 71, against which locking levers 75 secured on the shaft 68 can lie. Screws 74 which can lbe moved by hand-wheels 72 and are mounted in thel uprights 3 and 5 serve as abutinents, the iront ends of these screws being likewise provided with protective members 76 similar to the members 70.

The frame is provided with rollers 77 for more readily moving it. In order to iiX the apparatus firmly on the ground after it has been attached at the place of rest of the patient, two screws 83, which can be moved by hand-wheels 82, are mounted in the baseplate and provided at their bottom ends with protective members 86. By turning the4 hand-wheels 82 the rollers 77 located near them are raised from the ground.

My apparatus is manipulated and operates as follows After the elevation and the aniplitude of the pendulum arms 43 and 44 have been adjusted suitably for-the patient by turning the' hand-wheel 48 on the one hand, and the hand-wheels 32 and 33 onthe other hand, presupposing that the ap aratus is to be driven by the motor 57 the c utch 5.8 is caused to engage with the worm wheel 37, whereupon the motor is started. This rotates the worm which drives the worm wheel 37 coacting with the clutch58, which, again, imparts its motion to the shaft 11 so thatthe cams 12 and 13 are rotated. In consequence of the shape of the grooves 14 v and 15 of the cams 12 and 13 which are displaced 180Q relatively to one another, the levers 20 and 21 are alternately held vat rest and oscillated, the arrangement being such that the one lever oscillateswhile the other is held. at rest, and reversely. This motion is imparted by the an le levers 28 and 29 and the connecting ro s 41 and 42 to the pendulum arms 43 and 44, by which the le s of the patient are moved alternately. Whi e the one pendulum oscillates, in consequence of the form of the cam-grooves 14, 15 the I other is held so that it cannot be moved by the dpatient.y If the a paratus is to be operate manually,`the c utch 58 is caused to engage with the sprocket wheel 59 .and th crank-handle 60 is rotated. v

I claim: Y
