Like κλινάριον (Acts 5:15) κλινίδιον (Luke 5:19; Luke 5:24) is peculiar to Luke in the NT, and Hobart, in support of his thesis of common authorship based on the medical language of the Gospel and Acts, has collected instances of its use to denote ";a litter for carrying the sick"; (p. 116); but see further Cadbury Diction, p. 56 n.82.
