Configuration control apparatus Patent #: 4196972
AbstractA flexible mirror device for providing a modified reflection of the body of a person is disclosed. The mirror device includes a first frame member and a second frame member disposed parallel to the first frame member and an upper and a lower frame member spaced from each other and extending between the first and the second frame members. A transverse shaft extends between and is rotatably secured relative to the first and second frame members. A first and second cam are rigidly secured adjacent a first and second end, respectively, of the transverse shaft and cooperate respectively with a first and second mirror support. A flexible mirror extends between the mirror supports. A central frame member which extends between the lower frame member and the transverse shaft is attached to the mirror such that rotation of the transverse shaft results in a changing curvature of the mirror. The mirror is also attached to a flexible transverse frame means disposed in the vicinity of the upper frame member such that rotation of the transverse shaft results in a differential change of curvature of the mirror in the vicinity of the transverse shaft relative to the change in curvature in the vicinity of the flexible transverse frame means.
