New Lung Lets Patient Sit Up (Nov, 1953)

New Lung Lets Patient Sit Up
A polio victim needn’t lie on his back in this new respirator, being tested at the Harvard School of Public Health. It was designed to give a patient a more normal view of the world than he gets when confined to other “iron lungs.” He sits on a comfortable chair that can be raised, lowered and otherwise adjusted.
