W. M. SCHOLL FOOT MEASURING DEVICE Filed April 1925 Patented Mar. 9, 1926.

UNITED I STES WILLIAM M. SCHOLL, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

FOOT-MEASURING DEVICE.

Application filed April 24, 1925. Serial No. 25,481.

To all wkomz't may concern.

Be it known that I, WILLIAM M. SoHoLL, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois,have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Foot-Measuring Device; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the numerals of reference marked'thereon, which form a part of this specification.

The invention relates to means for measuring and recording on the device the essential dimensions of the human foot, required for the proper fitting of shoes thereto.

One of the objects is to provide a foot measuring device which may quickly be applied and adjusted to the foot and which will indicate the length and width of the foot at locations desirable for proper fitting of shoes.

Another object is to provide a foot measuring device which will indicate the swingof the foot with respect to a line taken through the center of the heel and the great toe.

Other objects, advantages and benefits will become apparent, to persons versed in the art, from a consideration of the following description, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein Figure 1 is a bottom plan view of the device showing the manner of applying it to a foot.

Figure 2 is a bottom plan view of the device showing it somewhat enlarged.

Figure 3 is a substantial central longitudinal section of the device.

Figure 4 is a broken-away section taken on line 44 of Figure 2.

Figure 5 is a transverse section taken on line 5-5 of Figure 2.

In all the views the same reference char acters indicate similar parts.

As shown on the drawings:

The plate has a rear heel-receiving socket 11 having a rear curved upturned wall 12 serving as a heel stop. At its front end an arm 13 projects forwardly, preferably on an oblique angle and has inturned side edges 14 and 15 to provide a receptaclefor the slidable arm 16. The slidable arm carries a screw stud 17 which moves in the slot 18 between the inturned edges 14 and 15 and on which a threaded, clamping thumb frontend ofthe great toe, as shown in Fig ure 1, when measuring the length of the foot. -The spaced lines at 21, in cooperation with the inner end of the sliding arm 16 may be used toindicate in arbitrary terms the numbers of the shoe required or the lineal dimensions of the foot in fractions of inches.

There are two slidable arms movably sccured to the plate 10, one on each side of the fixed arm 13 to measure and to indicate the width of the foot. These arms 22 and 23 are alike except that they are rights and lofts, other-on the left. Only one of these arms will be described and the same reference characters will be applied to both.

The arms 22 and 23 each has an enlarged, preferably circular end 24 with a central perforation 25 and an upstanding part 26. The stem part 27 of the arm is slotted at 28 to receive the stud 29 to permit sliding movement of the arm with respect to the stud. The enlarged end 24 is preferably cup-shaped, as at 30 to receive the first and fifth projections, respectively, of the metatarsal bones of the foot. In adjusting the arms, 22 and 23, or either of them, the end of the finger may be inserted into the perforations 25 and either of them, to locate the aforesaid projections more accurately by the sense of touch. When they are located these arms may be fixed in position by the thumb nuts 31.

The arcuate graduation lines 32 and the radial lines 33 may be used with respect to.

marks 34 and 35, respectively, to indicate dimensions of the foot, determined by the positions of the enlarged ends 24. By use of the arms 22 and 23 the widest part of the foot may be located with respect to the rear vertical surface of the heel and the relation to the forward end of the great toe also may be indicated.

After the device has been removed from the foot the various values may be read from the indications then established.

I am aware that many changes may be made and numerous details of construction may be varied through a wide range without departing from the principles of this one on the right side and the invention, and I therefore do not purpose limiting'the patent granted hereon, otherwise thannecessitated by the prior art] Having described my inventiom What I claim as new and desire tosecure by Letters Patent, is:

1. A shoe measuring device comprising a plate having a socket to receive the heel of a foot with a verticaltlange in the rear or the socket; two slidable and pivoted adjustable arms, one on each side of the transverse center of said plate, each arm having a part to engage the sides ot a toot near the respective netatarsals thereof; and means for holding said arms in adjusted positions.

2. A shoe measuring device comprising a plate having a socket to receive the heel of a footivitl a vertical flange in the rear of the socket; a longitudinally slidable adjustable inemberhaving an uptlirrned fro nt end to engage the great toe, and two slidable and pivoted adjustable arms, one on each side of the transverse center of said plate, each arm having a part to engage the sides of a foot near the respective metatarsals thereof, and ineans for holding said arms in adjustedpositions.

3. A shoe measuring device comprising a plate having arear upturned flange to abut the heel of a foot; a longitudinally slidable arm having an upturned member to engage the great toe of the foot; two arms, one on each side of said plate extending laterally and forwardly from the front end 0t sa d plate, and each having a part to engage the metatarsal of the foot, and a hole in each arm through which the plantar surface of the foot may be felt by inserting a linger in said hole to locate the positions of certain bones of the tools.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name.

WILLIAM M. SCI-IOLL.
