Foot support cushion


FIG. 1 is a front elevational view of a foot support cushion embodying the design of the present invention;

FIG. 2 is a left side elevational view thereof, which is identical in appearance to the reverse of the right side elevational view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a back elevational view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a bottom elevational view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a top elevational view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a perspective view thereof; and,

FIG. 7 is a perspective view of a further present embodiment as in previous figures, but with certain alternative features as illustrated therein.

The use of stippling is intended to represent that the design is constructed primarily of foam or a like resilient material and does not form a surface feature of the design. The linear stripes as shown in FIGS. 1, 4, 6 and 7 are intended to represent cuts in the foam.

The sole difference in the embodiment of FIG. 7 from the embodiment of FIGS. 1 through 6 resides in the appearance of the shorter extent of the arcuate cradling area defined in the front cradling member and extending to the bottom of the cushion, as well as the more angled front end side edges.
