3 Claims.
(Cl. 5-90)
This invention relates to a hospital bed. An
object of the invention is to provide a bed with
reclining surfaces which can be disposed at many
different angles to accommodate a patient in
different positions and aid in moving the patient
from one position to another. Another object is
Il, i2, I3, and I4 (Fig. 4). These longitudinal
frame members are arranged in pairs and the
members of each pair are joined together at the
foot of the bed by transverse pieces I5 and I6.
Members i I and I2 are joined together by the
transverse piece I5, and frame members I3 and
to provide a bed of this character with a remov
able portion near the center of the leg-support

I4 by transverse piece I6. These longitudinal
members II and I2 and I3 and I4 form ñXed

leg-supporting frames disposed along the outside
provide a bedpan support for the bed to facilitate 10 of the bed near the lower portion thereof. Each

constructed that the member 3.5” can move in
a counterclockwise direction from the position
shown in Fig. 11, but cannot move any further

5l andY 59 are also rotated in the same direc
tion, and the ends with pins 5| and 62 move up
wardly, with the result that the main movable
framework of the bed also moves upwardly. In
this fashion the main framework may be pivoted
around the pivot points 55 and 56. Because the
cross piece 3 is lower than transverse members

lowered below a horizontal piane so that the
head thereof may move below the top of the
members i .and 2. This is desirable because
sometimes it is necessary to maintain the pa

Within the main movable framework at the y
