Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9930664A1] A frame for the support of supine persons comprises a rigid rectangular frame carrying a plurality of parallel rods attached to and crossing the space between the two longer sides of the frame. The rods form four groups located in the position of the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and pelvic regions of the body. The groups of rods located in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions carry a pair of barrel shaped or spherical support members on each rod rigidly fixed to or integral with the rod and space equidistantly about the longitudinal axis of the frame and extending upwardly above the edges of the frame. The rods and support members are mounted so that the upper surfaces of the support members are raised above the sides of the frame. In one embodiment the rods carrying the support members are mounted or constructed in a manner that permits limited movement in a vertical plane. The rods, support members and frame are preferably constructed from timber such as beech. The preferred spacing between the centres of each pair of support members is 75 mm and the spacing between the two longer sides of the frame is 220 mm.
