Machine-Translated document. KIPRIS , and the head supporting apparatus (100) play a role of easily managing the predetermined daily life including the city hall of television and learning etc. the jaw of the human body is supported and brain is supported. Hereinafter, more specifically, the head supporting apparatus (100) according to the preferred embodiment of the invention referring to figures 1 and 2 is illustrated. The chin support part (110) comprises the cushioning portion (112) and the upper support plate (114). The cushioning portion (112) play a role of reducing the pressure applied to the part contacting the jaw of the human body with the load of head in the jaw. This cushioning portion (112) may be formed by using the latex which is the material with an excellent flexibility, the impact absorption capacity, and resilience, and the material like the poly vinyl alcohol and natural rubber. Moreover, it can close by the side with an excellent absorption of the sweat the surface feels soft to the tactility or the ultra fine fabric. In the cushioning portion (112), the part contacting the jaw of the human body concavely forms and the area which is close to the jaw does so that the maximum is. In this case, since the load of head is dispersed into the Choe DaeHan and the pressure applied to the jaw is minimized the skin trouble by the rubbing of the pain applied in the jaw or the cushioning portion (112) and jaw can be prevented. Moreover, the jaw is settled in the cushioning portion (112) and the head of the user is more effectively fixed. The upper support plate (114) play a role of supporting the cushioning portion (112) it contacts to the cushioning portion (112). The velcro can be equipped in the upper side of the upper support plate (114) and lower surface of the cushioning portion (112) in order to attach the cushioning portion (112) in the upper support plate (114). Or in the upper side of the upper support plate (114), the hook portion of the velcro is attached and it processes so that the loop-line the lower surface of the cushioning portion (112) is formed and the upper support plate (114) and cushioning portion (112) are adhered. It forms into the material with high intensity the upper support plate (114) the form of the cushioning portion (112) formed with the soft material is not transformed into by the load of head. For example, it timbers the upper support plate (114). It can form into the material like the hard plastic material and metal. Although not illustrated, the space (not illustrated) in which the predetermined space is formed is formed inside the upper support plate (114). When the aromatic substance or the functional materials is accommodated in space and the user uses of the head supporting apparatus (100) the easy feeling which is more agreeable to the user and can be provided. The connection part (130) play a role of delivering to the bottom support part (160) the load of the head in which one side is combined in the lower part of the upper support plate (114) and which is combined in the bottom support part (160) which will be described later and which is delivered to the other side from the upper support plate (114). The connection part (130) is formed so that it includes the drive rod (132) and support rod (150) and support rod (150) control the height. The drive rod (132) is connected to the upper support plate (114). Multiple height control holes (134) arranged as the lengthwise are punched in the outer circumference. The external diameter is formed than the external diameter of the drive rod (132) and the drive rod (132) is inserted into the inside to the part bonded to the support rod (150) is the bottom support part (160). In the support rod (150), the through-hole (154) is punched. It is inserted into the height control hole (134) equipped in the drive rod (132) and the height adjustment bolt (156) passing through this through-hole (154) fixes the height of the drive rod (132). At this time, the female screw is formed in the height control hole (134) and through-hole (154). And in the height adjustment bolt (156), the male screw connected in the female screw is formed and the hard fixing state is more maintained. In the lower part of the support rod (150), the combined plate (152) which contacts to the upper side of the bottom support part (160) having the designated area so that the load delivered to the bottom support part (160) is dispersed in the bottom support part (160) is equipped. In the meantime, it is hinged to the connection part (130) and upper support plate (114) and since the upper support plate (114) is circulated the angle of the chin support part (110) can be controlled according to the offset of the user. For this, the side of the hinge bar (136) in the lower surface of the upper support plate (114) the hinge bar (136) is protruded in the upper end of the drive rod (132) is combined with the hinge bracket (140) equipped with the hinge plate (141) contacting. Since the hinge bolt (142) and joint nut (144) comprised of the male screw of the hinge bolt (142) and the connected female screw passing through the hinge bar (136) and hinge plate (141) are combined the upper support plate (114) and connection part (130) are hinged as shown in fig. 3.

Machine-Translated document. KIPRIS Here, by tightening the rigging screw (144) connected in the hinge bolt (142) the frictional force between the hinge plate (141) and the hinge bar (136) are increased. The state that prevents that the chin support part (110) is as a result arbitrarily circulated and is fixed is maintained. Moreover, it further includes the friction pad (146) for more increasing the frictional force between the hinge bar (136) and hinge plate (141). This friction pad (146) can be formed with the material such as the rubber exhibiting the excellent frictional force and silicon. The bottom support part (160) play a role of finally supporting the load of the head which is combined in the support rod (150) and is delivered through the connection part (130). In the state placed in the bottom surface to the part supporting the bottom support part (160) is the load of the user head, there has to be no flow. For this, in the floor of the bottom support part (160), the anti-skid block (162) can be equipped. Moreover, in order to prevent the flow of the bottom support part (160) the bottom support part (160) can be formed into the heavy metallic species. Or the bottom support part (160) can be formed as shown in figures 4 and 5 in the form of the clamp. Hereinafter, with respect to this, more specifically, it illustrates. The inlet hole (164) in which the tensioning rod phase water (200) such as desk and table is inserted is formed inside of the bottom support part (160). In the lower part of this bottom support part (160), it is penetrated in the floor the inlet hole (164). The fastener (165) in which the female screw is formed is equipped in the inner circumference. In the fastener (165), the screwed anchoring bolt (166) is connected in the fastener (165) but the anchoring bolt (166) is tightened and the tensioning rod phase water (200) and the bottom support part (160) inserted into the inlet hole (164) are closely fixed in the securely. Here, in the upper end of the anchoring bolt (166) contacting with the tensioning rod phase water (200), the flat board (167) for dispersing the applied pressure from the anchoring bolt (166) into the tensioning rod phase water (200) can be equipped. Moreover, in the lower part of the anchoring bolt (166), in order to easily turn the anchoring bolt (166) the steering wheel (168) formed with the fixed level can be equipped. The description described in the above is nothing but to illustratively illustrate the technical spirit of the present invention. If it grows up under the technical field in which the invention belongs the various corrections, and the change and substitution will be possible in the range that it does not deviate from the property of being essential of the present invention. Therefore, it is not but limits the technical spirit of the present invention the attached disclosed embodiment and the drawings are to illustrate in the invention. The range of the technical spirit of the present invention is not limited by this embodiment and attached drawing. All technical spirits within that and the equivalent range it has to be interpreted are included in the scope of right of the present invention and the scope of protection of the present invention should be interpreted by the following claims.
