Abstract

The applicator for ointment or similar products is for medical use. The applicator has a mobile sphere that is joined to a support and can be held in the hand. The ointment is introduced through a triangular opening that opens on the sphere. - The sphere is held in a hemispherical cavity in the support by a peripheral elastic lip fixed to the support. The support can slide in a tube that is an extension of the handle. A spring presses on the back face of the support.

Description


  Ointment application device

  
The invention relates to a device for applying ointments or similar products, for dosing and

  
at variable pressures.

  
Modern ointments for medicinal and even aesthetic use contain agents that are more and more active and aggressive with regard to the physiology of the organism. It is important that their absorption does not exceed the tolerance thresholds and that their use conforms to the instructions for use generally specified by the manufacturers.

  
External topicals should act on circumscribed areas and in defined quantities to avoid any harmfulness. Now, the current presentations

  
external applications lead the consumer to abusive manipulations: profuse spreading, friction, diffuse massage of substances on the skin using the hands. This results in an arbitrary overdose increased by the particular absorption of the fingers and the palm.

  
Applicator devices are already known

  
deodorants, comprising an applicator member (a sphere) movable around its center and linked (via a sleeve of synthetic material) to a support which can be held in the hand, the applicator member receiving, from a reservoir contained in the support, from the deodorant to be applied and transmitting it

  
to the skin of the user by means of a movement of the applicator relative thereto. However, these known devices do not include any means of dosing the deodorant that they apply.

  
The device according to the invention is essentially characterized by the fact that it includes a metering device for the product to be applied.

  
In a preferred embodiment of the invention, the applicator member is, in a manner known per se, a sphere and the latter carries on its surface grooves or cells suitable for receiving the ointment or product and for transmitting it to the skin of the user.

  
Other features of the devices embodying the invention will appear on reading the description given below of several embodiments given by way of examples, with the aid of the consideration of the drawings attached to this specification.

  
On the drawings, essentially schematic, we see, in:
- Figure 1, an axial longitudinal section of a first embodiment of the device according to the invention;
- Figure 2, a similar view of a similar device, constituting a variant;
- Figure 3, a similar view of another variant;
- Figure 4, a similar view of yet another variant;
- Figure 5, a partial view of another embodiment of the applicator according to the invention;
- Figure 6, a perspective view of another exemplary embodiment of the invention.

  
In all these figures, the same reference indices have been adopted to designate similar parts.

  
In FIG. 1, an ointment applicator member is designated by 1, constituted by a sphere of slightly deformable synthetic material, carried by

  
a support 2 constituted by a cylinder carrying at its

  
anterior face a hemispherical cavity 3 applying against the sphere 1. The latter is retained in its housing 3 by an elastic peripheral lip 4 fixed

  
at its periphery to the support 2. This lip is, in a manner known per se, applied to a small circle of the sphere, located in front of its large circle 5. The support 2

  
can slide in a tubing 6 of cylindrical shape, extending a handle 7. A shoulder 8 inside this handle serves as a support for a spring 9 which is applied by its other end to the rear face
10 of the support 2. This spring tends to push the sphere 1 lightly against the retaining lip 4, but

  
its real purpose is to elastically absorb the thrusts exerted from the outside (by the skin of the user) on

  
the outer surface of the sphere 1.

  
A first characteristic feature of the device according to the invention consists of the presence of a cavity 11 provided in the support, intended to receive a precise quantity or dose of the ointment to be applied. In the embodiment described here, this cavity surrounds the applicator sphere 1. The shape of this cavity seen in cross section through a plane passing through the longitudinal axis of the device, is a substantially triangular shape. At its base, the cavity

  
is open at 12 to allow the introduction of the product and in the vicinity of the tip of the triangle is a peripheral groove 13 constituting a calibrated orifice through which the product to be applied (for example an ointment) comes into contact with the surface

  
of sphere 1, the rotation thereof, in contact with

  
the skin of the user, driving in a known manner the product to be applied and thus gradually emptying the reservoir constituted by the cavity 11.The front and the rear of the support 2 are connected in places by crosspieces 11 '.

  
According to another feature of the invention,

  
the surface of the sphere 1 carries cells schematically at 14, which each receive a small portion of the product 1 ′ and which retransmit these portions to the skin, thanks to a possible deformation of

  
the surface of the sphere 1. Instead of the cells, one could also provide grooves 14 'of various shapes, hollowed out in the surface of the sphere.

  
In the embodiment shown in Figure 2, the support 2 of the sphere 1 is a shoe having on its front face a hollow 3 matching the shape of the sphere 1. The shoe 2 which constitutes the support, slides in a box 6 connected to the handle 7. At the front of this box 6, the latter ends with an elastic lip 4 delimiting at the front a cavity 11 closed at the rear by a wall 15 connected to the box 6. The cavity 11 which thus has a rectangular cross section, has at a point on its outer periphery an orifice 12 through which the product 1 'to be applied is introduced into the cavity. The box 6 is open along its contact surface with the sphere 1 by forming there (at 13) a calibrated passage. The other parts of this embodiment
(grooves 14 ', spring 9, shoulder 8 in the handle 7)

  
are analogous to the arrangements of the embodiment of Figure 1.

  
An additional arrangement which constitutes a third feature of the invention consists of an electrical resistor 16 connected by wires 17 to a source of electrical current (not shown) which may be a battery of batteries contained in the handle 7 or, more advantageously , an outlet from the sector. This electrical resistance is intended to heat the surface of the applicator member 1, either in order to act on the consistency of the product to be applied, or to influence the coating of the part of the body treated.

  
In the embodiment shown in Figure 3, the solid support 2 constitutes by its extension the handle 7 and carries at the front a flange 18 carrying an elastic lip 4 to retain the sphere 1. The latter is supported in a hollow 3 of the support.

  
In the axis of the handle 7 is a channel 19 open to the outside through an orifice 20 through which a dose 1 ′ of the product to be applied is introduced into the channel 19. The channel 19 opens at 21 in the center of the hollow 3, against the sphere 1. The product to be applied is pushed against it by a piston 22 which can be maneuvered from the outside using a rod 23.

  
In this embodiment, as indeed in the first embodiment shown in FIG. 1, it is possible to provide, in the mass of the support 2, a heating resistor similar to the resistor 16 described in connection with FIG. 2 .

  
The embodiment shown in Figure

  
4 differs from the embodiment shown in Figure 3 only by the relative arrangement of the sphere 1 and the handle 7. Any other form of handle can also be considered according to the convenience of the user.

  
In the embodiment shown in Figure 5, the sphere 1 is carried by an elastic sleeve 24 threaded onto the end of a handle 7 constituting a reservoir for the product to be applied. This reservoir is limited on the side of the sphere 1 by a spherical cap 25 pierced with a calibrated hole 26. The sleeve 24 constitutes a flexible intermediate support which allows the rotation of the sphere 1 on the surface of the spherical cap 25. During the application of the product to the skin of the user, movements printed on the handle 7 will make traverse by the sphere 1, through

  
sleeve 24, various routes on the skin,

  
so that the application of the product will be accompanied by a kind of pleasant massage. The movements imposed on the applicator member may be eccentric relative to the center or the axis of the latter.

  
Figure 6 shows in perspective an applicator device according to the invention, carrying three <EMI ID = 1.1>

  
the holes through which we can bring an ointment

  
to the respective spheres.

  
Certain products to be applied adhere to the walls of the containers to the point that it is difficult to

  
detach them and therefore a dose introduced into the reservoir does not fully reach the patient's skin. It is therefore interesting to use a device of the kind of FIG. 3, comprising a cylinder and a piston. The piston rod can then very easily carry graduations (27 in FIG. 3)

  
and the end of the handle (at the edge of the orifice 20) can constitute a mark in front of which they move. A very precise dosage, by difference in readings, can be obtained under these conditions.

  
All the devices described can in fact be equipped with an electric heating system such as that which has been described in connection with FIG. 2.

  
Many other embodiments are obviously possible without departing from the scope and scope of the present invention.

  
Thus, a motor can be used to cause the various movements of the applicator member, this motor being useful in cases where the user has some functional handicap or in cases where the movements of the applicator member should undergo particular variations of rhythm.
