CLAIMS

1. Means for lifting and providing mobile support to move a disabled or otherwise handicapped person from a bed or seating to another location, such as a bathroom, said means comprising:
(a) a torso support, said support being formed of
(i) a rigid transverse member having an arcuate inner wall and a vertical outer wall terminating laterally in a pair of right angularly joined rearwardly extending planar side walls, said inner wall being dimensioned to extend from one side of the person's body to its other side around the abdominal area, and having a height generally conforming to the altitude of such area;
(ii) a pair of rigid vertical parallel support elements, each being secured to and extending upwardly from one side of said member, each of said vertical elements having extending rearwardly from its upper extremity, and rigidly supporting, an arm parallel to the arm of the other vertical element, each said arm being arcuately recessed downwardly to receive one of the body's arms at its torso connection; and
(b) lifting means, said means being pivotally connected at the lower rear area of said planar side walls of said rigid member, said lifting means including means to prevent said torso support from flipping over about its pivotal connection on said planar side walls, and said lifting means being adapted to provide a force to raise and lower said torso support when the upper torso of a person is disposed therein with its armpits in the arcuate
recesses of the arms extending rearwardly from the upper extremities of the vertical elements, and the abdomen pressed against the arcuate inner wall of the rigid member.

2. Means for lifting and providing mobile support to move a disabled or otherwise handicapped person from a bed or seating to another location, such as a bathroom, said means comprising:
(a) a torso support, said support being formed of
(i) a rigid transverse member having a vertical arcuate inner wall and a vertical outer wall terminating laterally in a pair of right angularly joined rearwardly extending planar side walls, said inner wall being dimensioned to extend from one side of the person's body to its other side around the abdominal area, and having a height generally conforming to the altitude of such area;
(ii) a pair of rigid vertical support elements, each being secured to and extending upwardly from one side of the vertical outer wall of said member, each of said vertical elements having extending rearwardly from its upper extremity, and rigidly supporting, an arm parallel to the arm of the other vertical element, each said arm being arcuately recessed downwardly to receive one of the body's arms at its torso connection; and
(b) lifting means, said means being pivotally connected at least to the outer wall of said rigid member at the lower rear area of each of said planar side walls of said rigid member, said lifting means including means to prevent said torso support from flipping over about its pivotal connection on said planar side walls, and said lifting means being adapted to provide a force to raise and lower said torso support when the upper torso of a person is disposed therein with its armpits in the arcuate
recesses of the arms extending rearwardly from the upper extremities of the vertical elements, and with the abdomen pressed against the arcuate inner wall of the rigid member.

3. The means for lifting and providing mobile support as described in Claim 2 wherein the lifting means comprises a U-shaped rigid element fixedly connected to and extending from a rigid lift bar, said bar being pivotally secured to a hydraulically actuable member, thereby to be raised and lowered in response to such actuation, and the projecting arms of the U of the U-shaped rigid element are pivotally secured at their extremities to the lower corners of the rear of the planar side walls of the rigid transverse member.

4. The means for lifting and providing mobile support as described in Claim 2 wherein the lifting means comprises an overhead cable which may be raised or lowered in
response to control means, the lower end of said cable being connected to the upper extremities of two pairs of flexible elements, the other extremity of one of each of the first of said pairs being pivotally connected to the lower rear area of each of the planar side walls of said rigid member, and the other extremity of one of each of the second pair of flexible elements being connected to the upper area of one of the pair of rigid vertical parallel support elements.

5. The means for lifting and providing mobile support as described in Claim 2 , wherein each of the rigid vertical parallel support elements is pivotally secured at its lower extremity to the outer vertical wall of said transverse member.

6. The means for lifting and providing mobile support as described in Claim 2, wherein the outer vertical wall of the rigid member is provided with means to limit the angles about which the rigid vertical elements may be pivoted in relationship to said outer vertical wall.

7. Means for lifting and providing mobile support to move a disabled or otherwise handicapped person from a bed or seating to another location, such as a bathroom, said means comprising:
(a) a torso support, said support being formed of a rigid, elongated, transverse member extending about a first axis and having an inner vertical wall of a height approximating the height of a person's abdomen, and a pair of arcuate upper arm receiving and supporting elements spaced apart from each other by the width of the chest of the person to be supported, said elements being rigidly positioned and secured to, above and to the rear of the transverse member;
(b) lifting means pivotally secured to the transverse member to permit the latter to swing about an axis parallel to said first axis over a pre-determined angle and to move the torso support in a horizontal direction;
(c) means to actuate said lifting means to elevate said torso support to a pre-determined height, to hold it at such height disposition, to mov the torso support horizontally in a predetermined direction, and to lower said torso support to such disposition as may be desired.

8. Means for lifting and providing mobile support to move a disabled or otherwise handicapped person from a bed or seating to another location, such as a bathroom, said means comprising:
(a) a wheeled base
(b) means on said base to support an elongated rigid member having its first end hingedly connected to said base and its second end extending upwardly from the base of a pre-determined angle relative to the horizontal, said rigid member being movable between a first position at a first pre-determined angle with reference to the horizontal, and a second position at a second and greater angle with reference to the horizontal;
(c) powered means to move said elongated rigid member and to hold it in any disposition between said first and second positions;
(d) a rigid transverse member, the last said member being hingedly connected on the second end of said
elongated rigid member for limited movement about its hinged axis, said transverse member presenting a vertical wall opposite the hinge connection, said wall being of a height approximating the height of the abdomen of the person to be supported;
(e) a pair of vertical support elements spaced from each other by a distance equal to the width of the chest of the person to be supported, and said elements extending upwardly from said transverse member and fixedly anchored on said member, each of said elements supporting a
rearwardly extending arcuate arm adapted to receive the person's arm at the armpit connection with the torso; and
(f) control means to actuate said powered means.
Whereby when said wall is placed in abutment with the person's abdomen and the person's arms are seated in the arcuate arms, operating the control means to actuate the powered means will enable the person to be raised or lowered from or to any seating position or to provide such supplement support as the person's legs may be incapable of normally providing.

9. Means for lifting and providing mobile support to move a disabled or otherwise handicapped person from a bed or seating to another location, such as a bathroom, said means as described in Claim 8 wherein transverse handle means are provided on said elongated rigid member, said handle means being spaced from the hinged connection, whereby the person being lifted may grasp said handle means to provide manual support while being lifted by the torso support means.
