UNITED sraras mean FRANK n. JENSEN, or orrnLsnA, ivmssncrrusnrrs,

ARCH snrroivr.

Application filed June 24, 1921. Serial No. 480,025.

To all on 1 o m it may concern Be it known that l, FRANK HARRIS JnN- saw, a citizen of the United States, residmg at Chelsea, in the county of Suffolk, State of lvlassachusetts, have invented a new and useful rch Support; and I do hereby declare the :t'ollowing to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and. use the same.

The invention relates to arch supporters and has for its object to provide a device of this character comprising an elongated elastic member having a foot engaging cuff adapted to engage over the foot in registration with the arch, said cup being provided with a pocket for detachably holding a pad.

Also to provide an extension to said elastic member which extension is adapted to be passed upwardly over the foot and around the anlcle and have its ends detachably connected to said extension, said extension forming means for exerting an upward pull on the cuff for maintaining the arch in raised position.

With the above and other objects in view the invention resides in the combination and arran ement of parts as hereinafter set forth, shown in the drawings described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention may be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the drawings I Figure 1 is a perspective view of the arch supporter showing the same in position on a foot.

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the arch SUPPOItGl'i.

Figure 3 is a perspective view of one of the pads.

Referring to the drawings, the numeral 1 designates an annular member adapted to encircle the :foot 2 in registration with the arch 3 thereof, said annular member being preferably formed from elastic material so that the same will exert a contractable force on the foot adjacent the transverse arch. The annular member 1 on its under face is provided with a pocket 4, in which pocket a wedge shaped pad 5 is disposed, saidpad assisting in holding the arch in raised position.

Secured t0 the annular member 1 at 6 is an elongatedelastic member 7, which memand eyes 11.

her is adapted to be stretched and passed around the ankle 8 and then downwardly and have its free end 9 attached to the main body of the member 7 by means of hooks 10 It will be seen that with the body member 7 stretched and so attached that an upward pull will be exerted on the inner side of the annular cuff .1, thereby as- Slsting in holding in raised position the transverse arches of the foot. The material from which the annular member 1 and the elongated member 7 are formed may be of any material but preferably of the type wherein rubber strands are interwoven in a piece of fabric.

From the above it will be seen that an arch supporter is provided which is simple in construction, easily applied to the foot and, so constructed that it will be forced upwardly DIV the ankle engaging extension thereby raising the inner side of the transverse (arches.

The invention having been set forth what is claimed as new and useful is z- 1. An arch support comprising a flexible band for encircling a persons instep, a length of flexible material stitched to said band to form therewith a tapering pocket open both at its larger end and its smaller end, and a tapering felt pad made of a length to project from both ends of the pocket, the projecting larger end permitting the easy grasping and withdrawal of the pad, and the projecting smaller end forming by its lateral expansion under the compression incident to wear, shoulders for preventing the pad from working out from the pocket.

2. An arch supporter comprising a flexible elastic band for encircling a persons foot, having a pocket beneath it, a yielding pad within said pocket, and a flexible elastic band permanently attached at one side of andclose to the bottom of the first-named band, and attaching devices for detachably fastening the other end of the second-named band to points near its attachment to the first-named band whereby a pull is given by the second-named band to the first-named band tending to rotate the latter on the wearers foot.

8. An arch support comprising a flexible elastic band for encircling a persons foot, having a yielding pad secured to its lowermost portion, a flexible elastic band attached at one end to a side of the first-named band to pull the hitter frum a ointnlone 139- In testimony whereof I have sigicd my side the hollow of the arch o A the wearer, a name to this wee-i'ficaten i-n the presence of 10 plurality 03 eyes attaciiled in a row edxtemiaIna two subscribing Witnesses.

in longitu inal oft esecon -name nd an fl to the same hear its attached end, and FRANK JENSEN a corresponding row of hooks attachqd fie Witnesses:
