Description

.Qct. 2,1923. mam? F. R. CUTTING ARCH SUPPORTER FiledMay 1. 1922 Zita en i0 Patented Oct. 2, 192a FRANCIS It. CUTTING, OF OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA.

ARCH SUPPORTER.

Application filed May 1, 1922. Serial No. 557,603.

To all wba'm it may concern:

Be it known that I, FRANGIs R. CU'rrING, a citizen of the United States, residing at Oakland, .in the county of Alameda and,

porter which will employ a heel portion which is resilient thereby eliminating the usual j artransmitted'to the heel.

A still further object is to construct an arch supporter which is extremely simple and one which may be readilyand cheaply manufactured. e

Other objects and advantages will be apparent during the course of the following description. y

In the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of my improved arch supporter,

Fig. 2 is a cross-section taken on the line 2 2 of Figure3, and I I Fig. 3 is a cross-section taken on the line 3-3 of Figure 2.

In the construction ofan arch supporter, it is necessary that the arch supporter should conform to the arch of the foot, and at the same time it should be resilient in order to accommodate itself to the movement of the foot. Applicant is aware of spring arch supporters made of metal which fail in this respect in that they are very stiff in order that they are not bent out of shape. At the same time, themetal supporters are exceedingly hard on the feet, owing to the fact they are weighty and tire the wearer.

In the accompanying drawings wherein for the purpose of illustration I propose to overcome the above mentioned difiiculties by employing an arch supporter which is formed with a heel portion 5 f resilient ma-' terial such as sponge, rubber or an equivalent composition, and at 6 I have shown an arched shaped fiber filler, which filler is of considerable thickness at the point A. and tapers towards its opposite. extremity as shown at B. Superimposed upon and extending over the heel portion 5 and the filler 6 is a fiber strip 7 which fiber strip is cemented to the heel portion 5 and-filler 6 and is constructedto conform to the contour of the heel and filler ortions. This fiber strip 7 extends the entire width of the heel and filler portions and is bent upwardly as shown at 8 and 901? Figure 2, so as to form wings 1'1 and 12. The whole supporter thus described is preferably covered with leather or substitute as shown at 13 for thepurpose of retaining the parts together and also for appearances. At 14, '15 and 16 I have shown eyelets passing through the wings 11 and 12. These eyelets form a ventilating aperture so that the natural movement of the foot willcause passage of air therethrough.

It is to be'understood that the form of my invention herewith shown and described is to be taken as a preferred example of the same, and that various changes in the shape,

size and arrangement of parts may be re-, sorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subjoined claims.

Having thus described my invention, I claim I 1. In a device of the character described, comprising a heel portion, a filler portion,

said filler portion being of substantial thickness at the point of juncture with said heel portion and tapering toward its opposite extremity, an overlying strip secured to said heel portion and said filler portion, said overlying strip having wings formed integral therewith, and a cover for said device as a whole.

2. In a device of the character described, the combination with a resilient heel,'of a resilient fiber filler secured to said heel and tapering away therefrom, an overlying strip secured to said heel portion and said filler, wings formed integral with said strip, a cover for said device as a whole, and eyelets extending through said wings and said cover.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
