Title: Collapsible folding massage table

Abstract: An improved collapsible, foldable table including at least two table top sections, at least one hinge connecting the table top sections, a plurality of table legs rotatably attached to the table top sections, and a set up and rigidifying mechanism including a pair of braces, a truss member that extends from at least one of the at least two table top sections, and a central cable adapted to cause the outswinging of the plurality of table legs into an operative position when the table top sections are unfolded. Each brace includes a v-brace member, a central brace member, and a pivoting member for pivotally connecting the v-brace member to the central brace member. Preferably, the central cable extends between pivoting members of the pair of braces, a midportion of the central cable being attached to an end of the truss member. In addition, the set up and rigidifying mechanism preferably also includes a first reinforcing cable and a second reinforcing cable, the first and second reinforcing cables each extending from one table top section to the other table top section and the midportions of the first and second reinforcing cables being fixedly attached to an end of the truss member.
