Abstract

The toothbrush is provided with a hollow handle, accommodating a months supply of toothpaste to be dispensed from a conical rubber element located between the bristles. The paste can be moved by closing and opening one of two holes in a small rubber ball at the end of the handle with the tip of the finger in order to create a pumping effect. In a second version the toothpaste is pushed by a disk attached to a spindle mechanism and in a third version the paste is distributed by an integrated atomizer.

Description

  • [0001]
    Die Grundzüge dieser Erfindung liegen darin, die Zahnpasta und die Zahnbürste in einer Einheit zu vereinen, um die nun aufgeführten Vorteile zu bekommen: The basic features of this invention be to combine the toothpaste and the toothbrush in a unit in order to get the benefits now listed:
    • 1. Die Dosierung der Zahnpasta auf der Bürste ist kinderleicht und zeitsparend 1. The dosing of the toothpaste on the brush is easy and time-saving
    • 2. Die Haltbarkeit der Zahnbürste wird mit dem Ende der Zahnpasta angezeigt (Zahnbürsten sollten eigentlich jeden Monat erneuert werden) 2. The durability of the toothbrush is shown with the end of the toothpaste (toothbrushes should be replaced every month actually)
    • 3. Die Umwelt wird geschont durch die Einsparung der Zahnpasta-Tuben-Verpackung 3. The environment is protected by saving the toothpaste tubes packaging
    • 4. Die Organisation im Bad oder auf Reisen wird erleichtert 4. The organization in the bathroom or traveling easier
    • 5. Verbesserung der Hygiene durch Vermeidung eines „Tuben-Sharings" 5. Improve hygiene by avoiding a "tube-sharing"
  • [0002]
    Als Zahnpasta müsste man wahrscheinlich ein Zahnpastakonzentrat verwenden, damit ca. 90 Anwendungen mengenmäßig möglich sind. As toothpaste would have to probably use a toothpaste concentrate, approximately 90 applications are quantitatively possible.
  • Grundzüge des Aufbaus der Zahn-Pasta-Bürste Basic features of the structure of the tooth-brush pasta
  • [0003]
    Im Zahnbürsten-Griff ist ein Hohlraum zur Aufnahme der Zahnpasta vorgesehen. In the toothbrush handle a cavity for receiving the toothpaste is provided. Die Zuleitung vom Griff in das Borstenfeld geschieht über eine Hohlleitung innerhalb des Zahnbürsten-Halses. The lead from the handle in the bristle field is via a hollow conduit inside the toothbrush neck. Am Ende dieser Zuleitung ragt ein weicher roter hohlleitender Gummi-Kelch halbhoch ins Borstenfeld zur optimalen Verteilung der Zahnpasta zu den Borsten und um einen unkontrollierten Rückfluss zu vermeiden. At the end of a supply line soft red hollow conductive rubber cup extends halfway up the bristle field for optimal distribution of the toothpaste to the bristles and an uncontrolled return to avoid.
  • [0004]
    Es sind drei verschiedene Mechanismen denkbar die Zahnpasta aus dem Griff in das „Einsatzgebiet" zu bekommen. There are possible to get the toothpaste from the handle to the "application" of three different mechanisms.
  • 1. Modell Pumpball 1. Model Pumpball
  • [0005]
    Die Zahnpasta befindet sich in einem Weichplastik-Behältnis innerhalb des Griffes mit Zugang in die Zuleitung zum Bürstenfeld. The toothpaste is in a soft plastic container inside the handle with access into the supply line to the brush box. Um die Zahnpasta dorthin zu bekommen, bedient man sich dem Luftdruck. To get the toothpaste there, one uses the air pressure. Ein am Ende des Griffes eingelassener hohler Gummiball mit einem „Luftloch zur Umwelt" und ein „Luftloch zum Hohlraum des Griffes" mit einem Rückschlagventil in Form einer eng aufliegenden Gummiklappe erzeugt diesen Druckunterschied. A recessed at the end of the grip hollow rubber ball with a "vent to the environment" and an "air hole to the cavity of the handle" with a non-return valve in the form of a closely lying rubber flap creates this pressure difference. Drückt man mit dem Finger auf den Gummiball am Ende des Griffes, dann verschließt man automatisch das „Umweltluftloch". Das Zusammendrücken des Balles erzeugt nun einen Druck der nach innen auf die Zahnpasta in dem Weichplatikbeutel wirkt und diese in das Bürstenfeld presst. Wird der Finger entfernt, kann der Ball sich wieder mit Luft füllen. Die Gummiklappe innen verhindert das Entweichen des Innendrucks und es kann nur „Umweltluft" von außen einfließen. By pressing the finger on the rubber ball at the end of the handle, then automatically closes the "environmental air hole". The compression of the ball now produces a pressure which acts on the toothpaste in the Weichplatikbeutel inward and presses it into the brush box. If the finger away, the ball can be filled with air again. the rubber flap inside prevents the escape of the internal pressure and can flow only "environmental air" from the outside. Dieser Vorgang kann so lange wiederholt werden, bis die Zahnpasta aufgebraucht ist, dann sollte man die Zahnbürste erneuern. This process can be repeated until the toothpaste is used up, then you should replace the toothbrush.
  • 2. Modell Drehmechanismus 2. Model rotation mechanism
  • [0006]
    Die Zahnpasta befindet sich in einem geometrischen Hohlzylinder innerhalb des Griffes mit Zugang in die Zuleitung zum Bürstenfeld. The toothpaste is located in a geometrical hollow cylinder within the handle with access into the feed line to the brush box. Innerhalb des Hohlzylinders befindet sich ein Gewinde welches mit einer Drehscheibe außerhalb am Ende des Griffes verbunden ist. Within the hollow cylinder there is a thread which is connected to a hub outside at the end of the handle. Dreht man an der Drehscheibe, dann dreht sich auch das Gewinde, auf diesem Gewinde wiederum ist eine Plattform aufgeschraubt, welche sich dann Richtung Bürstenfeld bewegt und die Zahnpasta vor sich her in die Bürstenfeld-Zuleitung presst. turning on the turntable, then also the thread turns, in this thread, in turn, is a platform screwed on, which then moves towards the brush box and the toothpaste pressed into the brush box feed line ahead of it. In dem Drehknopf eingearbeitet ist ein „Zählwerk", was nach jeder 90° oder 180° Drehung einrastet und somit die Dosierung erleichtert. incorporated in the rotary knob is a "counter", which engages after each 90 ° or 180 ° rotation, thus facilitating the dosage.
  • 3. Modell Zerstäuber 3. Model atomizer
  • [0007]
    Die Zahnpasta befindet sich in einem amorphen Hohlraum innerhalb des Griffes. The toothpaste is in an amorphous cavity within the handle. Die Zuleitung zum Bürstenfeld geschieht über einen eingelassenen Verbindungsschlauch, welcher vergleichbar mit einem Parfum-Zerstäuber die Zahnpasta ansaugt. The feed line to the brush box is done by a recessed connecting tube, which draws comparable with a perfume atomizer toothpaste. Der Zerstäuber-Mechanismus ist in den Zahnbürstenkopf eingelassen, so dass wenn man die Zahnbürste am Zahnfleisch mit Druck ansetzt dieser ausgelöst wird und minimale Mengen an Zahnpasta je Anpressung freisetzt. The atomizer mechanism is embedded into the toothbrush head, so that if one sets the toothbrush at the gum with this pressure is released and releases minimal amounts of toothpaste per pressing. So ist eine regelmäßige und gleichmäßige Zahnpastafreisetzung möglich, ohne dass wie sonst immer eine große Menge im Waschbecken „verloren geht". So a regular and uniform toothpaste release is possible without such otherwise "lost" always a large amount in the sink.
