UNITED STATES GEORGE A. EECK, OF NEW ROCHELLE, NEW YORK.

INTERCHANGEAELE GLOVE.

Application led October 18,1924. Serial'No. 744,305.-

To a-ZZ 'whomz't may conce/m.'

` Be it known that I, GEORGE A. Piron, a citizen of the United States, and resident of New Rochelle, in the county of lVestchester Vand State of New York. have invented certain new and useful Improvements iii Interchangeable Gloves, of whioli the following is a specification.

This invention relates to interchangeable gloves, and more particularly relates .to gloves made of rubber or similar material designed for use by surgeons.- It is essential that gloves used by surgeons when practicing upon patients must be Sterile, and also that they do not interfere with kthe surgeons ability to feel through the glove. Such articles are very easily contaminated by handling or touching foreign substances. lVhen a surgeon has a supply of sterilized gloves, some of which are suitedv only for therriOht hand and the others only for the the left hand, it very often happens that he picks up and attempts to put on his hand a glove which is suited only to liisot-her hand. SuchV handling of the glove often contaminates it and prevents it from being used until it has been sterilized again. To avoid this objectionable feature, it has been proposed to provide a rubber glove which is reversible, so that it may be placed on either hand. The design of such gloves, liowever, has been such that the glove forms wrinkles across the palm of the hand, land seriously interferes with the surgeons ability to feel through the glove. For this reason these gloves are very objectionable.

The principal aim of my invention is to overcome the above objectionable features, and to provide a rubber glove particularly suitable for use by surgeons, and which may be used indiscriminately on either hand, anda glove which, at the saine time, presents a fiat unwrinkled surface over the palm of whichever hand the glove is placed, and does not interfere with the wearers ability to feel through the glove. A

Another object of my invention'is to provide a glove of the character Vdescribed which is simple and inexpensive in construction and one which may be put on or taken offv readily and easily. y

Other objects of my invention will be in part obvious and in part pointed out hereinafter.

In accordance with my invention, the

may be moved and rot-ated toward one side or the other of the glove, depending upon which hand, either right or left, is inserted into the glove. The movement of this thumb portion in this manner stretches the material of the glove flat across the palm of the hand without causing any wrinkles to form on the palm. n

Iiiorder that a clearer understanding of my invention may be had, attention is here- -by directed to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this application and illustratilng one possible embodiment of my, invention. i

Referring to the drawings: Fig. l. is a front view of a glove embodying my invention, looking toward the palm side; f

Fig. 2 is a side view of the glove;

Fig. 3 is a front view of a portion of the glove, showing its normal position on a hand; and f Fig. 4 is a sectional view of the glove as worn, and 1s taken on the line 4 4: of Fig. 3.

Referring to the drawings, the glove coinprises an integral piece of thin rubber formed to shape, as by molding. However, the glove may be formed of several pieces suitably vulcanized or othewise secured together. As shown, the glove comprises a tubular portion, the lower end of which, l, is the wrist portion. Above the wrist portion is a palm portion 2, back portion 3, and side portions 4. Upwardly of the palin and back portions extend four tubular finger portions, the two end Vones 5 being of equal height and each being long enough to accommodate the first finger of either of the wea-rers hands. The ltwo middle fingers G are also of equal height and each is long enough to accommodate the second finger of each of the wearers hands. A thumb portion 7 has an enlarged base. S extending outwardly from the lower central portion of the palm 2. Portion 8 is open into the in. terior of the glove. A portion 9 extends upwardly from the portion 8, and is tubular,

and of such shape and size as to snugly accommodate the thumb of either of thevwear'- ers hands.

In Fig. 3, the glove is shown placed on a wearers left hand.- In placing the' glove' on either hand, the thumb of the wearer is rotated inwardly towards the palm of 'the hand, and then the hand is--slid into the glove, so that the four lingers of the wearer entersthe four linger portions of the glove and the wearers thumb enters the thumb portion 9. The wearer may then rotate his thumb toward the thumb side of his hand. This will ybring thethumb portion of` the glove to the side of the glove, (as shown in lFig. 3,* when the left hand is used), and will stretch the palm portion 2 of the glove tightly across the palm l() of the wearers hand 1l, as shown in Fig. 4.- lVhenthe glove is placed on the right hand, the thumb portion will be drawn tov the. right of the glove,`and when the glove is'fplaced on the left hand, the thumb portion will be drawn to the left of the glove, and in each case the palm portion 2 will be stretched in unwrinkled condition across the wearerspalm, thus providing a flat surface through which the 'surgeon may feel.

As `many changes could be made in the aboveconstructionand as many apparently widely diterent embodiments of this inventionfcould be made without departing from the scope thereof, it is intended that all matter contained in the above description or shown in the accompanying drawings be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

.lVhatI claim' is l. A surgeons glove made of elastic material and including'a back portion, a palm portion7 linger stalls above the palm portion, and a thumb portion joining the. palm portion midway between the side edges thereof, the elasticity o'l the material of the glove permitting the thumb portion to be moved 4to either side of the palm, and the glove being ada-ptedto either hand o'l the wearer without reversal.

2. A surgeons glove made of highly elastic material and including finger stalls and a thumb stall arranged below and centrally withrespect to theA linger stalls, whereby the glove may lie-placed on-either hand of a wearer and the entire thumb stall drawn to either side of the glove accompanied by stretching of the material acrossthe palm of the wearers hand.

This specification signed this 11 day of Gctober, 1924.

GEORGE A. PECK.
