SYDNEY E. aus'rm, 0F MOUNTAIN LAKEs, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNOR To THE KEY- SCHEERER GQERPOR ATI ON OF AMERICA, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK.

Application filed May 2,

ToaZZ whom t may concern: e Be it known that I, SYDNEY AUsTI- a citizen of the United States, residing at Mountain. Lakes, the county of Morris; and State of New Jersey, have invented. certain new? and useful Improvementsin Splint Stretchers, of which the following, isa specification. I I illlyinwention relatesto a splint stretoher and the novelty consists in the adaptation and arrangement of the parts, as will be moreful-ly hereinafter pointed out.

Splint stretchers have been used; for many years, and they are used; more particularly in connection with warships where accidents frequently occur requiring their. use.

For such: use on warships; it is essential that such splint. stretchers should take up! as littlespace as, possible when they are not in; use and. are packed away.

4 lit isessentialin the handling of fractures;

I temporarilyset beforetransporting 1 so as;

1301 reduce pain. and the possibility of badly set bones, to sohandle the patient that. it will not be necessary toi again lift or turn the. patient'atter he has once been placed on av splint stretcher and: the. bones temporarily set. a 7

My device furnishessuch a; splint stretcher which can be readily separated substantially at the middle so that the patient need, not be litted; or rolledl after he has; been: carried on my stretch-er; but can be: laid: upon the operating table or bed in: my stretcher, which can then be taken: apart and the head. and; foot portionseasily slipped out from under the. patient without in any way disturbinghim; .e

My: device also furnishes-a splint-stretcher which canbe readily; separated so that it can be nested for packing, and itis also constructed so that it furnishes a sanitary open ing better adapted tomeet all requirements. Referring. to the.drawingsFigur-ei1 is a topplan view; oflny device; Figure is a detail ofthe telescopingseparable connectionoif the outer frame members; Figurefi SPLIN'J. S-TRETCHER.

thereby making a" head frame 25 and a" complete foot frame 26*of the two separable portions ofrnysplint stretcher.

Tlie openings 21 comprise a telescoping member consisting of. a tonguet'22' rigidly" secured inside of the frame 10of the head members 11 prior to the. shapingof points 18in the cross member 25st) as to project into the interior of the. framelO' of the adjoining fbot por tion 26" j The tongue member 22 has a circular boring QBLwhicli the closed position ieada'pted "to register with a circular boring 26 so that 24 in theadjoining foot portion portion 26 on the inside thereof so as to be they can be locked together by a cotter pin 28 held on the end of a chain member 29 which is rigidly secured to the cross frame members 14 at 30. The longitudinal frame members 12 of the head portion 25 of the frame terminate at 27 in cylindrical tubes 31 having circular borings 32 which register with semi-circular cut-outs 33 in the adjacent longitudinal frame members 12 which extend into the tubular members 31 so that cotter pins 28 can pass therethrough in the closed position so as to lock them rigidly together. y

A wire mesh 34 is adapted to be secured to the outer frame member 10 and the longitudinal frame member 19 of the foot supported on said frame members. A simi lar wire mesh 35 issecured to the outer frame member 10 of the head portion 25 on the inside of the frame so as to be supported on said frame member. Chains 36 are adapted to be secured to said mesh 35 and the cross frame members l l as indicated, and flexible strapping members 37 i are adapted to be passed under said chains 36, said members 37 having the usual buckle fastening means 38. a r

In the foot portion 26 of my device there are chains 39 secured to the mesh 34 and the cross frame members 16. Foot support members 40 having fastening means 41 are adapted to be secured by said fastening means 41 being snapped into the particular link on the chains 39 at the position desired so as to properly support the feet of the person laid on my stretcher as shown in Fig. 1.

In using my splint stretcher the person to be handled is placed on the stretcher" as shown in Figure 1, and the foot supports 40 are adjusted to the position on the chains 39 to theposition necessary to bring them in supportof the feet of the perso'nlying on the stretcherand are thensecured to the chains 39 in said positions. The straps 37 are brought around the body of the person lying on the stretcher and strapped into pothe feet and the cotter pins 28 being with drawn from the holes 24 and-32, thehead portion 25 of my splint stretcher can then- .be slid out from underth e person being treated, and the foot portion 26 can likewise I be slid out from under the person being treated. In this' w'ay the splint stretcher is. removed from the person being treated vor' carried thereon, thereby, avoiding the lifting of the person being treated from said splint.

stretcher, and in this way eliminating the danger of further injury through the lifting of the person being treated from my stretcher to the operating table or bed. 42 is a sanitary opening between the head portion 25 and the foot portion 26 at the necessary position, and serves an essential purpose to avoid the lifting or moving of the outer frame foot'portions, a pin adapted to secure said members together throughsaid circular borings, longitudinal frame members the head portions of which terminate at the point of separation in cylindrical tubes, a cylindrical boring in said cylindrical tubes and semi-circular cutouts in the foot portions of said frame membersadapted to register withsaid borings and pins adapted to secure thesame'together.

2. In a splint stretcher a separable frame comprising an outer frame member which at the point of separation has two tongue members mounted inthehead portion ,-of said frame adapted to engage the outer frame member of the foot portion, a circular boringin each of said-tongues adapted toregister with a circular boring in said outer frame foot portions, a pin adapted to secure said members together through said circular borings, longitudinal frame mem bers the head portions of which terminate at the point of separation in cylindrical tubes, a cylindrical boring in said cylindrical tubes and semi-circular cutouts in the foot portions of said frame members adapt 1 ed to register with said borings and pins adapted to secure the same together, substantially rigid meshwork secured to said frame, a portion of said frame being formed into gutters, a sanitary opening between said separable members and handle grips of larger tubing mounted on said frame.

3. In a splint stretcher a separable frame. comprising an outer frame member which at the point of separationhas two tongue members mounted in theqhead portion, of. said frame adapted to engage theputer frame member of the foot portion, a circular boring in .eachof said tongues adapted to register with circularfboring in said outer. frame foot; portions, a ,pin adaptedto' ure s'a em er' e her th u'shfie circular borings, longitudinal frame memto secure the same together, a substantially bers the head portions of which terminate at rigid meshwork secured to each of the septhe point of separation in cylindrical tubes, arable frame parts and having leg gutters 19 a cylindrical boring in said cylindrical and means for securing a patient in a fixed 5 tubes andvsemi-circular cutouts in the foot position to said stretcher.
