16 Claims. (01. 45-683) The present invention relates to improvements in medical and similar tables and it particularly relates 'toimprovements in sanitary paper roller and feeding and cutting devices therefor.

5 Considerable difficulty has been experienced in providing a readily manipulated sanitary device which will provide temporary paper covers for medical and similar tables. It is quite laborious and unsatisfactory to use separate covers, each of which are unfolded and placed upon the table.

It is desirable to have a dispenser by which the doctor, physician or surgeon may conveniently and without difliculty immediately obtain a sheet of paper to cover the table. I

However, most'of these dispensers are defective inasmuch as they are quite heavy and-expensive and do not satisfactorily cooperate wlththe table. The paper rolls are not covered and collect dirt and dust and tend to loosen during usage of the table and render manipulation of the table difflcult. The paper which has been rolled to cover the table tends to pull or lengthen as well as 'ruiile. Mo 7 unrolled and considerable difllculty is encountered 5 in removing the sheet after usage and is replacing it by a new sheet. In addition, the paper does dispensing device by whichthe table may be c'onveniently and readily covered by a temporary paper cover with the minimum of manipulation by thephysician, doctor or surgeon using the same.

Other objects will appear during the course of 40 the following specification.

' In accomplishing these objects it has been found satisfactory to provide a light sheet metal. container, which will contain or embody suitable pivot mounts for the paper roll. The container is connected to one of the longitudinal ends of the medical or surgical table in such a manner that it will be unobtrusively positioned below the upper surface thereof. 3

In one preferred form the enclosure'may con- 5 stat of a rectangular shaped box with a lid and be provided with a plurality of resilient pivot sup-'- ports attached to the interior end walls thereof.

These resilientpi vot supports may serve to carry a rod for sustaining the paper dispensing roll and at the same time may exert a 'springy action reover, frequently too much paper is.

-and feeding device to the table, looking in the against said paper roll to cause'the-paper to be in tension when the same is unrolled therefrom.

In the embodiment shown it has been found preferable to provide the container, enclosure or holder with a relatively heavy sheet metal flange or angle member by which a connection may be made to the medical or similar table.

A cutting edge arrangement is provided upon the edge of the table so that the used paper cover may be conveniently torn away an removed. This-cutting edge arrangement may a be provided with means by which it will be-possible for the physician or other user of the table to grasp most conveniently the torn sheet and to draw another cover for the table past the cutting edge. 9

The above and other objects will appear more clearly from the .following detailed description, when taken in connection with the accompanying drawings which illustrate a preferred embodiment of the inventive idea.

8 is aside sectional view of another em- 1 shown). To the rear end of the table 17 may be connected the adjustable section 18, the position of which may be regulated by the parallel braces The braces 19, as shown, are provided with a series of spaced notches 20 which are received by the cross rod 21 transversely connected between two of the legs 11 of the table M so as to support the extension 18 at any desired angle to the table 10. To the rear end of the table of Fig. 1. is connected the paper roll and feeding device F of the present invention.

As shown in Figs. 2, 3 and 4 the sloping member 18 is of sheet metal construction having a sheet metal top 22 with side sheet metal flanges 23' and an end metal flange 24. The other table elements 10 and 16 are also of similar construction. The entire table M may be conveniently coated with a sanitary appearing white enamel and if desired covered by a table pad.

The paper. roll and feeding device F as shown in Figs. 2, 3 and 4, is provided with a casing or enclosure element C. An attachment A for connecting the paper roll and feeding device F to the table M and a tearing or cutting arrangement T.

The casing or enclosure C consists of a relatively thin sheet metal box which may for example be covered with white enamel or other suitable material. The box C has a top wall 30, a bottom wall 31, a rear wall 32 and side wall 33. As shown in Figs. 2, 3 and 4, thefront end of the box is left open and is provided with a cover 34 having a hinge connection at 35 to the front edge of the bottom 31. The upper edge of the cover is beaded as indicated at 36 so as to give a smooth finish.

The side edges of the hinged cover 34 are provided with inwardly turned flanges 45 with the curved ends 48. These flanges are closely contacted with the sides 33 of the closure 34 and which are provided with cooperating snap tits 46 which are adapted to flt in and be received by the corresponding snap tits 4'? on the side walls 33 (see particularly Fig. 5a)

To the side walls 33, are connected by spot welding or riveting the sheet metal pivot support members P (see particularly Figs. 2, 3, 4 and 4a) which are provided with two offset flat metal.

elements 3'7 and 38. The element 38 is connected to the end walls 33 of the enclosure C and the element 3'? is provided with the looking or bayonet slot 39 to receive the ends of the pivot rod 40.

The pivot rod 40 passes through the roll of paper 41 which is centrally positioned within the casing C and the fingers or elements 3'7 of the pivots P are preferably resiliently bent inwardly toward each other so that they will closely contact with the sides of the wooden spools 42 inserted in the end of the roller and hold the paper under tension when it is being dispensed or i'ed.

To the inside of the ceiling 30 of the casing C is connected the attaching member A consisting of channel bar 50 preferably of heavier sheet metal than the casing C. The upper flange 51 of the channel bar 50 is resiliently pressed on the top of the inclined extension 18 of the table M, while the lower flange 52 is riveted or otherwise attached, as by screws, to the inside of the box or enclosure C, as indicated at 53.

The ceiling or top wall 30 of the box or enclosure 30 carries the thumb screws 54, 55 and 56, each of which is provided with a manual grip member 57. Although any number of these screws may be utilized with the type of table shown in Fig. l and as indicated in Figs. 2, 3 and 4, three screws are usually most satisfactory. The

' ing as suflicient reinforcement for the screws 54 and 56, and the attachment plate 58 being welded to the rear of the cover 30 to receive the rear screw element 55.

In order to obtain a most satisfactory rigid resilient connection of the enclosure C to the extension 18, the angle bar 50 is so arranged that it'will be resiliently expanded upon attachment of the casing or box C by the screws 54, 55 and 56.

It will be noted that the screws 54, 55 and 56 are screwed through the ceiling 30 of the box C until their rounded end portions at 60 contact with the lower bottom side of the sheet metal top 22 of the .wardly to the position indicated in Fig. 3, and

this separation of the flanges 52 and 53 will cause the top flange 51 to press against the top of the inclined extension 18 and assure a very rigid con-' nection. It will be noted that the bending Drincipally takes place between the flange 52 and the web of the channel 50. The angle of the flange 51 to the web is 90' so that the angle member will closely fit the edge of the table formed by the flange 24 depending vertically downwardly from the top surface 22.

The tearing arrangement is connected to the upper flange 51 of the attachment A, as shown particularly in Figs. 2, 3, 5, 6 and 6a.

' The tearing bar 61 is inclined forwardly and downwardly as particularly indicated in Fig. 6a in the direction that the. paper is drawn, as indicated by the arrows 90, but if desired it may also be positioned parallel to the flange 51. As specifically indicated in Figs. 2, 4 and 6a the ends of the bar are clamped on spacer blocks or elements 62 by screws 63. These screws 63 extend downwardly through the ends of the tearing bar 61 and the spacer blocks 62 and into the body 01' the flange 51.

In the arrangement as shown the rear opening 64 between the tearing bar 61 and the flange 51 is wider than the forward opening 65 so as to enable the ready insertion of the paper. The relatively narrow space or interval 65 between the front end or tearing bar 61 and the flange 51 enables more ready tearing or detachment of the sheet of paper to be removed. The inclination of the tearing bar 61 also assists in the tearbox when it is being detached, a resilient clamp is provided consisting of one or more indentations 68 located symmetrically in the tearing bar 61.

The depth of the indentation 68 of the tearing bar 61 is somewhat greater than the corresponding elevation of the spacer block 62, so that there will be a substantial tension exerted upon the sheet of paper passing under the tearing bar 61. As a result, when the used sheet of paper has been detached by tearing along the bar 61 the strip of paper left between the carrying bar and the box C will be held by the indentation 68 and will be prevented from falling back into the casing or box C.

As shown particularly in Fig. 5 the corners of the channel member 50 are roughened at 70 preferably with a series of scorings or ridges which i are transverse to the movement of the paper. As

a result of this scoring or roughening, the paper upon being drawn from the roll under tearing bar 61 will be subjected to substantial frictional effect, with the result that it will be staticallycharged opposite to the body of the table and to the top elements 18, 10 and 16 of such table.

The pivot elements P, and particularly the resilient slot containing elements 37 will press closely against the wooden spools 42 of the roll of paper 41, so that the paper upon being drawn under the tearing bar 61 will be subjected to considerable tension with resultant enhanced frictional contact at said edges 70.

As indicated in Fig. 1, a tearing arrangement 'I' may be providedat the end of the leaf 16 in addition to and/or to take the place of the tearing arrangement T. In this case the sheet of paper instead of being grasped at the tearing strip T and drawn across the table elements 18, 10 and 16, will be grasped at the tearing arrangement 'I' and the used paper will be drawn under the tearing bar until the paper cover on top-of the table has been changed. In this arrangement the friction engendered at the edges of the channel 50 will cause the paper being drawn past the tearing bar 61 to be held closely thereto by the static electric charge.

After the used paper cover has been removed, the edge of the new sheet of paper is moved past the tearing strip 61 by upward pressure of the hand along the channel base 50. The edge of the paper, which is thus pushed past the tearing bar 61, may be grasped by the hand and drawn across the table to cover the surface thereof. For example, the paper may be drawn sufliciently to cover the inclined element 18 or to cover the inclined element 18 and the horizontal element i 10, or to cover the inclined element 18, the cover 10 and the rear leaf 16.

It is often inconvenient, after the used paper sheet has been torn off at either the arrangement T or T; for the user of the table to slide the paper forwardly at the channel 50 of the tearing arrangement T in order that a new edge may be presented under the tearing bar 61 to be grasped.

In Figs. 2, 3, 4 and 6 is shown an arrangement which may be readily employed to obviate this difllculty. The arrangement has not been shown upon Fig. 1 in view of the small scale of the elements of this Figure. According to this arrangement the sheet of paper instead of being torn along the front straight edge of the tearing bar 61 will be torn along a tab or projecting element on the front of the tearing strip. In this manner, a forwardly projecting tab or ear on the paper edge will be formed which may be most readily grasped by the hand.

In Figs. 2, 3, 4 and 6, the tab plate is pivotally connected at 81 to the tearing bar 61, the spring 82 being provided to move the tab plate downwardly, at all times, and hold it in position in contact with the front edge of the flange 51 as indicated in Figs. 2 and 3.

. When the paper is torn along the front edge of the bar 61, it will tear around the edge 83 of the tearing tab 80. Thereupon the user of the tab may readily lift up the tab plate 80, grasp the tab or paper therebelow and readily draw the new sheetthrough the tearing arrangement T.

In Fig. 7 is shown a slight modification of this arrangement in which the tab plate 84 is provided with slots 85 which receive pins 86 on the tearing bar 61. Between the pins86 attached to the tearing bar 61 and pins 8''! attached to the tab plate 84 are the springs 88 which bias the tab plate 84 forwardly.

When the used sheet of paper is removed and torn along-the front edge of the tearing bar 61 and the tab plate 84, the tab plate 84 may be pushed rearwardly and the tab of paper therebelow grasped by the physician or person using the table. The new sheet of paper may then be readily drawn therethrough.

The arrows 90 on Figs. 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 6a and 7 indicate the movement of the sheet of paper, the sheet of paper being diagrammatically illustrated at L in Figs. 1, 2 and 3. Upon being unwound from the roll 41 as shown in Figs. 2 and 3 the paper may either be caused to pass from the top of the roll adjacent the ceiling 30 as indicated by the arrows 91 or from the front side of the roll adjacent from the roll as indicated by the arrows 92. In the former instance care must be taken that the paper is not torn by the thumb screws 5'7.

The arrangement shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 7 is particularly adapted to modern metallic or surgical examining tables of sheet metal construction. Since there are, however, a great many wooden medical and surgical examining tables still being used, the invention of the present application may be associated therewith without In the construction of Fig. 8 the channel member 50 is replaced by a right-angle bar element 105. One flange of this bar is provided with openings to enable attachment thereof to the top edge of the table 101 by the wood screws 106, while the other flange thereof is provided with similar openings to enable the clamping thereof to the table 101 by the wood screws 107.

It will be noted that the paper roll. and its pivot supports in the enclosure are protected from dirt and dust. The casing C shown in Figs. 2, 3 or 8 is placed under the table 18 where it will not be obtrusive or be readily apparent.

The clamping thumb screws 54, 55 and 56 assure a particularly rigid connection which adapts the device I" of the present invention to be fitted to a large number of different sizes and shapes of tables and assure that the device will not loosen during inclination or movement of the inclined table element 18. v

Even though the physician or surgeon using the table be quite careless in drawing the new paper cover through the tearing device, the static engendered will assure that the paper will cling closely to the table and not fall therefrom. Moreover, the tab plates. and 84 will enable convenient grasping of the new paper cover after the old paper cover has been ripped off. The tensioning projection 68 will prevent the paper from Although my invention is not restricted to any dimensionallimitations, it may be of value to illustrate this invention by the dimensions of one specific embodiment. For a commercial utilization, it has been found particularly satisfactory to make the device F of the present invention of substantially the following dimensional size: The height of the casing C in this commercial embodiment is 6", its width is 5" and its length is about 20". The spacing of the channel bar flanges 55 and 52 may be varied between 1%" and 2". T'he'width ofthe flanges may conveniently be about 1%". The metal in the channel 50 may vary between and 1/18" in thickness while the sheet metal in the box C may be about 1/64" in thickness. The forward thumb screws 54 and 56 may be separated from each, other by a space of about 1'7". The tearing bar 61 may be made in width and of about (5" in thickness.
