Z '0 all to 7mm it may con-0am:

Be it known that I, CLAUDE lV. BUonLEY, a citizen of the United States residing at Memphis, in the county of Shelby and State of Tennessee, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Urinals, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates more particularly to devices to be used by invalids or other persons without the necessity of arisii'ig from a recumbent position. It is more especially designed for the use of males but may also be readily used by females by adding flange.

The objects of my inventions are to provide a device which will rest on and can be moved to any portion or position on the bed and which when so used will readily drain to a receptacle beneathone side of the bed, and to provide such a'device with means of adjustment whereby the draining angle of the device may be readily varied. A further object is to provide means whereby the device may be closed off if it be necessary to remove or change the drainage tube, or if it be desired to use the device as an ordinary urinal separate from the tube, and to provide further means whereby, if the drainage be accidentally cut off, an auxiliary chamber will come into use, if needed to prevent overflow, with means of draining this auxiliary receptacle.

I accomplish these objects as will be more fully hereinafter set forth in the drawings, specifications and claims.

In the drawings Figure 1 is a perspective of the urinal in its preferred form.

Figure 2 is a longitudinal section on the center line showing a modification.

Figure 3 is a perspective of an iron frame bed, showing the urinal hung on one of the side rails of the bed, with a flexible tube leading from, the same to a vessel beneath the bed.

Referring now to the drawings in which the various parts are designated by reference numerals,

1- is the receptacle or urinal closed at its larger section or month by an end having an opening S through the upper This application fi1ed. May '26,

portion thereof and having its opposite or smaller 'end terminating in a tube 4:, 1-9 adapted to be slipped into the end of a rubber tube 5- (Figures 2 and 3) It willbe noted that theopening 3 is at the extreme top of the end 2, so that in case it should be desiredto empty the urinal through that end, there would be no flange or other obstructions to interfere. 22 is a cover which may be used to close the opening 3 if it be so desired. I

The receptacle 1 maybe tapered from the larger end 2- to the smaller end tor if desirable to increase the capacity and to eliminate all possibility of urine spattering outside, may be carried partway, say to the point 6 (Figure 1) of uniform sizn, and tapered from there to the smaller one. 1

The receptacle 1- may be a single chamher, or as shown in Figure 2- in section, may be divided into two chambers by a partition 7-. In this case an-opening 8 is formed in the partition 7- so that in case the upper chamber fails to properly'drain,- it will overflow into the loWer or overflow chamber 9. Both the upper chamber and the lower chamber 9- terminate at their smaller ends 4P, 4", in a double valve lO- which has openings 11- and 12 respectively at right angle to each other. 7 These openings l 4 respectively. The valve 10 has a single terminal 13-, with oneo'pening 14- therethrough, connected to both the u per and lower openings 11- and 12. The tube 5- leads from the terminal 13- to a vessel 15 situated below the bed (Fig. 3):

. The valve 10 is normally. so turned that the upper channel d is left open into the tube 5 and the lower channel 48 is closed, Should the overflow chamber 9 come into use it may be drained by turning the valve stem at rightangles until the opening 12 registers with the opening d and after draining should be again closed.

- If desired a valve may be placed on the" end l (Fig. 1) or the end 4- may be entirely closed, either by a permanent closure, not shown, or by a cap 2lwhich is adapted to slip over or screw on the end of the tube. y

116 is a ring fastened to the larger end of the receptacle 1 by which it may be openings are adapted to register with the I lifted, and 17 is a hook-handle to be used as a handle, or to slip over the rail of the bed as a hook,to support the receptacle when not in use. If desired, the tube 5- may be fastened to the mattress by a pin 18- so that it will be in proper position to drain when the receptacle is put into use.

The drainage angle of the vessel may be varied by means of a support 19- having a foot portion 20- adapted to rest on the bed. This support 19 is provided With a slot 23 which embraces and slides on a threaded post 24.- projecting from the end 2* and is held in position by a thumb nut 25, on the said post. A pin 26- also projecting from the end 2- through the slot 23 serves as a guide.

By loosening the thumb nut 25 the sup port 19- may be lowered or raised and the draining angle increased or decreased, as may be desired. This support may be made stationary if desired, or it may be entirely removed and the larger end be supported by hand to provide drainage.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred form or construction for carrying my invention into effect, this is capable of a wide range of modification without departing from the spirit of my invention. 1

therefore do not Wish to be limited to the details of construction herein set forth, but desire to avail myself of such variations and modifications as fairly fall Within the scope of the appended claims.
