  • Publication number: 20130014675
    Abstract: A height adjustable desktop apparatus including a work surface that may be adjusted between a raised and a lowered position, as well as any desired intermediate position, is provided. The work surface moves upwardly and downwardly in a vertical direction, and is supported by a pair of hinged support members. The hinged support members are pivotally attached, on a top portion, to the underside of the work surface, and one or both may be attached on a bottom portion to a sliding base member, which slides in a horizontal, lateral direction. The apparatus includes a fixed hutch, preferably having a fixed base member and a pair of fixed, raised shelves, wherein each shelf is supported by a pair of fixed vertical support members. The sliding base member is slidably attached to the fixed base member of the hutch, and moves in a lateral, sideways direction during adjustment.

  • Publication number: 20130000529
    Abstract: A support mechanism for supporting an object, such as a table, has at least four legs (5-8) and an interconnection means (4) connecting the legs. Each leg has at least a beam portion (5a-8a) with an inner (proximal) end and an outer (distal) end. The beam portion of each leg is connected to the interconnection means by a respective pivot (9) having a pivot axis. The pivot is located between the inner and outer ends of the beam portion. Each respective pair of adjacent legs has a protrusion (or lever or balance portion) (11-14), each fixed to one leg of said pair of adjacent legs and extending from that one leg to act on the other leg of said pair of adjacent legs whereby a support reaction force is transmitted between the pair of adjacent legs at a point on the other leg between the pivot and the outer end of the beam portion of that other leg. Said point is on the opposite side of the pivot axis of the one leg to the outer end of the beam portion of that one leg.
