Title:
Gymnastic tilted rotating table
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
This invention is a tilted rotating table designed for exercise and recreation. The table is free to rotate either in the clockwise or counterclockwise direction. The table has a fixed tilt from the horizontal and is mounted on bearings. In the drawing, FIGS. 1, 2, 3, and 4 show a human shape standing on the table and rotating counterclockwise when viewed from above. Each figure in sequence shows the human shape rotated 90 degrees from the previous figure with FIG. 1 rotated 90 degrees from FIG. 4, thus showing the ability for continuous rotation. The table is hollow and has a port for the addition or subtraction of weight, such as sand. The added weight increases the momentum or “flywheel effect” of the table. The result is a table that is easier to stand on, spins longer, and becomes more stable.
