1,626,127 P" 1927' o. T. WAYNE HAND MASSAGE IMPLEMENT AND MEDICINE APPLICATQR Filed Jan. 26. 1926 awumwdz (9. T WAY/V5,

' 4 OSCAR T. WAYNE, 0F PHIII JADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, ASSIGNOR TO x-I'l LABORA- TORIES, INC., OF

NEW YORK, N. Y. I I

Application flied January My invention has reference,'in its broad implements for applying medicine an at the giving a massage treatment, and 1t K same time is especial designed for use in the treatment of pyorrhea by those sufi'ering from that disease, and by the dental profession generally; and more particularly it is my purpose toprovide a rubber or other soft composition massage cup provided with a peripheral groove or recess thereby to induce a more perfect massage by.means of suction as well as agitation of the infected surfaces, and also to the end that medicine will be distributed completely over said surface while the massage is being given. The peripheral groove or recess also serves to trap or retain quantities of medicinal liquid and more eve y and completely apply the same, especially where the sur ace treated includes the ginlgival edges of the gum in the cavities of ,w ich pyorrhea is found and into which medicine cannot ordinarily be forced by the usual processes.

Other and equally important ob'ects of my invention may be briefly define sage cup can be molded in one operation,-

and the whole implement completely fabricated at small cost to the end that it may be distributed as an accessory to retail quantities of medicine much after the manner.of an eye dropper or eye cup; fourth, there are no metallic parts such as pins, nails or screws which could become corroded or affected by the acids of the mouth or by the ingredients of medicine, and; fifth, the cup is so formed that itsinherent resiliency aflz'ords its secure attachment to the handle.

While in the present instance I have defined for the sake of illustration a specific form of my massage cup it will be understood that I'do not desire to limit myself except as may be indicated by the scope of as fol-' lows: first, the flanged element of my mas- 26, 1926. Serial No. 88,903.

the claims appended hereunto and forming a part of this specification.

In the drawings wherein is illustrated an embodiment of my invention;-

Figure 1 is va sectional side'view of the same showing to advantage the formation of the on and its attachin dle; t e implement as s own being considerably enlarged,

Figure 2 is a to view of my cup and handle, very much on arged, and

Figure 3 is a base or bottom view of my massa e cup per se. V

In t e drawings wherein like characters of reference are used to designate like or similar parts throughout the several views The numeral 1) designates the handle of my implement, the same being gradually reduced to properly balance the same, and

provided with a laterall extending and enlarged end (2). Contra ly of the end (2) is formed a button (3) having a reduced shank (4) providing a recess between the end (2) d and the button. My massage cup (5 is substantially cone-shaped and has a flat ass 6) in which an opening (7) is formed.

he cup is attached to the handle by pressing the button v(3) throu h the opening (7) whence the inherent resi iency of the cup same being formed of rubber or other soft,

resilient composition-will cause the material of the base (6) to securely cling within the recess between the end (21) of the handle and the button, as shown in igure 1.

The body (8) of my massage cup flares outwardly as at (9) to form a lip (10), and adjacent to the 11p is rovided a flange or second annular lip 11'). Between the flange or lip (11) and the Ii (10) is a recess or groove (12) which w en the cup is appliedto a surface to be treated induces considerable suction in addition to the suction action of the on itself. Furthermore, medicinal liquid ten 5 to become trappedor retained in the recess or groove (12) thereby more evenly distributing the same over the surface treated at the same time the massage is being given, as well as causing such liquid to be projected into pyrrohea pockets which would otherwise be inaccessible. It will be noted that the flange or lip (11) does not extend out from the cup quite to the edge of the lip (10) so that an exceedingly gentle application of the cup will bring only the lip (10) into contact with the surface treated.

My cup is preferably formed of soft rubher, and it may be molded in a single operation, or if desired the cup body ma be molded and then the inner surface annu arly split to form the flange or lip (11) and groove or recess (12).

In operation medicinal liquid is applied to the cup and the cup rubbed across and over the gums in the manner somewhat similar to the manipulation of a tooth brush.

While in the foregoing, there has been illustrated and described such combination and arrangement of elements as constitute the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is nevertheless desired to emphasize the fact that interpretation of the invention should only be conclusive when made in the light of the subjoined claims.

I claim 1. A combined massage implement and medicine applicator comprising a cup shaped body the peripheral portion of which is annularly recessed to form a pair of lips, one

of which is flared outwardly and is larger' said lips being flared outwardly and larger than 'the other lip whereby said li only engages the person of the user of t e cup upon very slight application of pressure, and both of said lips being substantially wed e shaped in cross-section to form relativey thin edges for engaging the person, and a handle carried by the cup for manipulating the same.

In testimony whereof, I afiix my signature hereunto. I

OSCAR T. WAYNE.
