Trapeze, Shower Bath, Punching Bag Feature Gym Bed (May, 1935)
Trapeze, Shower Bath, Punching Bag Feature Gym Bed
A COMPLETELY equipped gymnasium, a turkish bath, a shower bathâ€”all these have been combined into a single colonial-style bed by J. S. Embree, Los Angeles inventor.
The bed is a “four-poster” with an awning top. Parallel bars are set between the end posts, and they are removable to be used across the top of the bed as trapezes. A punching bag-hook hangs from the top for arm and torso exercise; using a suspended swing as a seat, a small portable pedaling device furnishes exercise for the legs.
A shower attachment permits either a shower or a turkish bath after exercise. Music to accompany exercises comes from a radio set in the head of the bed.
