PROPST ATTORNEYS 1 DETACHABLE FURNITURE'S UPPORT proximately the distance of the indentation,but less than the area of the expanded diameter, extending outwardly from an end of the arm portion, the fingers extending behind an area of the expanded diameter, the arms containing a bearing surface, spaced below the earsto support the arm against rotation in a ,vertical plane, and to permit rotation of the arm about a vertical axis.

In another of its aspects, the invention construction inwhich a cabinet is supported from the end of a cantilevered arm which is rotatable about the supported end, the cabinet having a downwardly extending flange at one side thereof wherein the cabinet, support means comprises a downwardly extending rod, a laterally extending support, and an upwardly extending brace, the rod rotatably engages a socket, the laterally extending support is positioned beneath at least a portion of the cabinet, and the upwardly extending brace is positioned at the side of the cabinet, the brace having flange engaging arms extending outwardly at the top portion of the upwardly extending brace to engage the downwardly extending flange on the cabinet.

In still another of its aspects, the invention relates to a cantilevered structure in which an adjustable connection at the end of a supporting arm is provided, wherein the adjustable connection comprises a vertical cylindrical member at the end of the supporting arm, the vertical cylindrical member being surrounded partially by vertically extending ears, forming an arc-shaped channel between the cylinder and the ears, a slide member having a pair of arc-shaped vertical members adapted to fit into and slide within the arc-shaped channel and being relatively close in engagement with the vertical cylindrical member, the slide member having arm connecting means spaced laterally of the arc-shaped vertical members, whereby the slide member is wedged into the arc-shaped channel when force is applied to the arm supporting portion of the slide member, and wherein the slide member is vertically adjustable in the arc-shaped channel when there is an absence of force on the arm connecting portions of the slide member.

Increasing cost for hospitalization and medical services, demand that hospital personnel be utilized to their capacity, and that hospital equipment cost be reduced. Presently, hospital trays comprise a platform, supported by vertical legs which straddle the sidesof the bed. When it is desirable to use the tray, the tray must be rolled in place by an attendant or nurse. Further, it is difficult for the patient to remove the tray and leave the bed without assistance.

I have now discovered an inexpensive tray unit which can be attached to the side of the bed and cantilevered over the bed, so that the tray could be placed in position and removed from position when, desirable by the patient. The structure can also be adapted to support other units, such as, telephone stands,

etc.

relates to a furniture Other aspects, objects, and the several advantages of this invention are apparent to one skilled in the art from a study of this disclosure, the drawings, and the appended claims.

According to the invention, there is provided a furniture construction in which a cantilevered ann supports furniture units. The cantilevered arm has a joint structure, comprising a support rod and a connecting arm. The support rod is insertable into a socket in one end of the connecting arm. The rod contains at least one indentation and area of expanded diameter adjacent the indentation for releasably attaching and rotatably supporting a second cantilevered arm. A pair of fingers, spaced approximately the distance of the indentation but less than the area of expanded diameten'extend from the employed in making the unit is rotatable relative to adjacent It is yet another object of this invention to provide a cantilevered construction which is rapidly and easily assembled and disassembled. u

the support rod so that the first cantilevered arm will rotate about the second support rod.

The fingers can extend upwardly or downwardly behindthe area of expanded diameter to maintain the arm in contact with the rod. 7

In one embodiment, the rod hasthe plurality of indentations and expanded diameters, or ball-likeconfigurations, over.

which downwardly extending fingers of connecting arms can be attached.

According to another embodiment. of the invention, a rod is supported by a bed frame and a plurality of cantilevered arms are employed to provide a cantilevered furniture construction for trays and the like over the bed surface. 7

According to still another embodiment of the invention, a supporting tray structure can be provided at the end of the cantilevered arms. The supporting tray structure has means for attaching the tray to the end of a cantilevered arm. The attaching means comprises a laterally extending member, which supports the tray, an upwardly extending member, and a second laterally extending member to clamp the tray in place. Preferably, the trays have an indentation to receive a downwardly extending portion of the laterally extending members.v

The cantilevered arms can support cabinets and the like through a cabinet supporting means, in which, a rod on the cabinet supporting means is positioned in a socket in one end of the cantilevered arm, and the cabinet supporting means has a T-shaped member which hooks beneatha downwardly extending flange on the cabinet structure.

According to one embodiment of this invention, wires for a telephone or other electrical devices, can pass through the cantilevered arms, and be thus hidden from sight.

The furniture at the end of the cantilevered arms can be raised vertically by attaching the arms at different portions of the rods, or by a special slidable wedge'member which permits simple raising and lowering of the connecting structure.

The invention will now be described with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

FIG. 1 is a perspective of an embodiment of the invention as applied to ahospital bed;

FIG. 2 is an exploded view ofa socket, supporting rod, and connecting arm shown in FIG. 1; Y

FIG. 3 is a perspective view showing how the connecting arm is attached to the bar;

FIG. 4 is a perspective bottom view showing a means of attaching the cabinet to the end of the cantilevered arms;

FIG. 5 is a schematic view of a cabinet attached to the end FIG. 9 is a view of the connecting rod in the embodiment shown in FIG. 8;

FIG. 10 is a side elevational view of the joint structure shown in FIG. 8;

FIG. 11 is a side elevational view of a tray and a supporting apparatus therefor on the end of the cantilevered structure according to the invention;

FIG. 12 is a top view of the supporting structure shown in FIG. 1 1;

FIG. 14 is a side view of the tray shown in FIG. 13;

FIG. 15 is an end view of the tray supporting structure shown in FIG. 13;

FIG. 16 is an exploded view of still another embodiment of the invention; and

FIG. 17 is a side elevational view, partly in section, of a portion of the embodiment shown in FIG. 16.

Referring now to the drawings, and to FIGS. 1 through 3 in particular, a bed frame generally designated as 2, has vertical supporting end 4, with outwardly extending brackets 8. A supporting rod 6 is positioned between the brackets 6 and held firmly in place thereby; The supporting rod 6 has a plurality of indented portions 9 through one of which indentations pass fingers 20 of arms 10. Connecting rod 12, containing at least tains a bearing surface 22, which bearing surface is positioned beneath fingers 20 to vertically stabilize arm 10. The bearing surface 22 is preferably concave outwardly and arc-shaped in cross section to conform with the outer surface of rod 12, so as to permit the arm 10 to rotate horizontally relative to rod 12. A cabinet 46 is rotatably secured to the end of an arm 10.

The manner of connecting and disconnecting the arms to the-connecting rods is shown in FIG. 3. The arm is tilted upwardly so that the ends of the fingers, easily pass through the indentations 18 of rods 12. As the arm is pushed inwardly, it is rotated downwardly with the bearing surface 22 ultimately abutting against rod 12. As the arm is rotated downwardly, the ends of fingers 20 are rotated upwardly behind the expanded diameter portion of the rod 12. In this manner, the arms are easily attached and detached from the structure. It can be further seen, that the arms are rotatable relative to one another, so as to provide a cantilevered structure which can be easily manipulated and positioned by the patient.

- As illustrated in FIG. 4, the cabinet 46 has a socket 28 with "a downwardly opening hole 30. The arm 10 has a pin 32 which fits into hole 30. When the cabinet is supported on the pin 32,

fthrough socket 28, the cabinet can rotate about pin 32.

The cantilevered arms can be used to support trays and/or cabinets. An alternate arrangement for supporting a cabinet having electrical components is shown in FIGS. 5 and 6. The cabinet 46 is supported by member 56 through a downwardly extending flange 70 on the cabinet. The supporting member :has a downwardly extending rod 58, which is rotatably supported in a socket 24 of a supporting arm 10. The supporting structure has a lateral extending portion 60, which is positioned beneath the cabinet, an upwardly extending portion 62, and a transverse supporting rail 64, forming a T-shaped member. The T-shaped member fits beneath downwardly extending flange 70 of cabinet 46, and, thereby supports the cabinet. The supporting structure also preferably contains a I pair of outwardly extending arms 68, which tends to prevent horizontal rotation of the cabinet 46. A pair of ball members "66 on the ends of member 64, provide a firm engagement of portion thereof, and a socket 78 at the upper portion thereof. Outwardly extending arms 74 contains a socket 76 for support of furniture units. As can be seen best in FIG. 7, the modified supporting structures can be placed one on top of the other without the need for a connecting linkage. Further, the downwardly extending rod 80 can be inserted into the socket 24 of an end arm 10.

The FIGS. 8 through 10 show another embodiment of the connecting members for arms 10. FIG. 8, in particular, shows the end structure of an arm, which would correspond to the connecting portion of arm 10. Arm 100 contains a pair of downwardly extending spaced fingers 84 and a pair of upwardly extending spaced fingers 86. A connecting rod 12a comprises at least one, and preferably two, spaced areas of expanded diameter 82.

The areas of expanded diameter 82 of rod 12a are so spaced as to be positioned between the fingers 84 and 86, so that they can easily slide between the same and be gripped by downwardly extending fingers 84. With the downwardly extending fingers 84 and upwardly extending fingers 86, arm 10a can be inverted and still grip and engage-rod 12a.

A tray supporting structure is shown in FIGS. 11 and 12. The supporting structure comprises a pair of outwardly extending arms 88, which are joined at to provide a rigid support. The arms are bent downwardly at 96 and upwardly at 92, and then downwardly again at 94.-The support extends across the structure at 94 to complete the loop. The tray 14, preferably comprises a top from a storage unit, such as that disclosed in Propst,'U.S. Pat. No. 3,241,898. The tray 14 has an indentation 15 and a corresponding bump 17 on the other side thereof. The bump 17'and the indentation 15 are engaged by the supporting structure and firmly positioned thereby. The weight of the tray 14 maintains the same locked in position beneath rod 94.

The tray engaging portion is supported by a laterally extending rod 98, which is welded to the sides 88. Also welded to rod 98 is a vertical tube 100 having an inner hole 101 for receiving shaft 13 of rod 12b. Arm 10 supports rod 1212 through socket 20 and lower shaft 19.

Alternately, shaft 1.00 can have a tapered thickness and diameter which would correspond to lower shaft 19 so that the bottom of shaft 100 could be insertedinto socket 24 and be rotatably supported thereby.

An alternate tray support mechanism is shown in FIGS. 13 through 15. In this tray support mechanism, a U-shaped rod 102 is bent inwardly and welded at 104 to a vertical arcshaped bearing member 106. At the top portion of bearing member 106, a triangular plate 108 having downwardly extending portion 110 is attached. Plate 108 also contains outwardly extending ears 112 which are similar in construction and shape to the cars 20 of arm 10. Bearing member 106 has a circular shaped bearing surface 107 for contact with the outer portion of a connecting rod 12. In this manner, the tray can be directly attached to a standard connecting rod.

A tray 14 similar to that shown in FIGS. 11 and 12 can be positioned on supporting arms 102 with the use of the tray support. The indentation 15 would be positioned beneath downwardly extending member 110 of triangular holding bar 108. In this manner, the weight of the tray would maintain the end portion of the same beneath the downwardly extending portion 110 of holding member 108.

For the sake of simplicity, the tray supporting structure has been described with regard to a relatively flat surfacewhich can be a portion of the storage unit. However, it is within the scope of the invention to employ other tray structures. For example, a tiltable tray could be employed in place of the above described tray.

Referring now to FIGS. 16 and 17, a still further modification of the invention is disclosed. In this modification, the overbed arm is attached to a wall rail instead of being attached to the edge of the bed. The rail is attached to a wall 142 through suitable screws 148. The rail has an upstanding flange 144 and a relatively flat front face 146.

The arm is attached to the rail through an attaching flange 150 having a depending hook 142 which hooks behind the upstanding flange 144 and a supporting surface bearing against face 146. The attaching flange 140 has a bracket 154 with a rod 156 suitably attached between two spaced horizontal flanges. The rod 156 is removable for insertion of arms 158 which will be described hereinafter.

The arms have circular ends 160 and 164. The circular end l60has an axial hole 162 into which fits rod 156. Circular end 164 has an upstanding rod 166 which is used for attaching other arms to extend the arm as far as desired. Another such arm 168 has an end 170 with an axial hole 172 for fitting over rod 166. The rod 168 also has an end 174 with an upstanding rod 176 for supporting trays, cabinets, and the like. Other anns can be attached to a common joint through a joint such as that disclosed in FIG. 9.

For example, a tray supporting member 178 can be attached to the end of the arm 168 in a manner shown more completely in FIG. 18. The tray supporting member comprises a circular rail 180 which is slightly bent to support a tray 14. The rail 180 is fixed to shaft 182. A head member 186 having a depending hook 188 is also attached to shaft 182 for holding the tray in place. The tray has an indentation and an upturned end which is engaged by the depending hook 88 of head 186. The shaft 182 has an axial hole 184 which fits over the rod 176 in the end 174 of arm 168.

Reasonable variations and modification are possible within the scope of the foregoing disclosure, the drawings, (and the appended claims), without departing from the spirit thereof.
