TODAY’S PATENT- REVERSIBLE LOUNGE CHAIR
The reversible lounge chair was invented by Howard Cohan and Chrissa Paloni, patented by the USPTO on the 24th of April, 2014, bearing the patent number US7207622B2. Camp Beds Patents (Class 5/112)
The patented invention has a variety of embodiments of a lounge chair which permit a sunbather to take maximum advantage of the incident angle of the sun’s rays throughout the course of a sunbathing day without having to rotate or otherwise move the lounge chair. The invention is directed to a lounge chair having a frame supported by legs, which may or may not have wheels incorporated therewith, and at least first and second adjustable backrest portions pivotally attached to the chair.
When a sunbather wishes to sit on the lounge chair in an inclined position with his or her back supported, he or she inclines one of the backrest members which will position the sunbather in the most optimal position relative to the sun for sun bathing. As the sun passes overhead to a point which causes the sunbather’s exposure to the sun to be diminished, the sunbather may merely drop the first backrest portion down to a horizontal or other desired position, adjust the second backrest portion to a position of inclination which suits the sunbather, and turn him or herself around 180° to lay in the opposite direction in the lounge chair.
