ARCH AND ANKLE SUPPORT.

Application filed January 22, 1926. Serial No. 83,048.

This invention aims to provide novel means for connecting adjustably, the constituent parts of a combined arch and ankle support, and, generally, to improve and toenhance the utility of devices of that sort to which the invention appertains.

Although a preferred form has been shown in the drawings, a mechanic, working within the scope of what is claimed, may

make changes and improvements such as his skill may suggest, without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the drawings Figure 1 shows in plan, a device constructed in accordance with the invention; and

Figure 2 is a vertical longitudinal section.

The device forming the subject matter of this application is fashioned from an endless loop-shaped member 1, which is crossed upon itself, as at 2, to define a foot socket 3 and an ankle socket l, and to form an inner layer 5 and an outer layer 6, at the place 2, where the loop-shaped member 1 is crossed upon itself. A flexible element 7, such as a piece of tape, secured at its ends, as at 8, to the inner layer 5, and a s1m1lar flexible element 9 is secured in a like way to the outer layer 6. Both flexible elements 7 and 9 are housed between the layers 5 and 6, the flexible elements crossing each other, and each flexible element ext-ending between the other flexible element and the layer whereunto said other flexibleelement is connected.

The device is further characterized by the provision of a flexible tab 10, projecting from the end of the ankle socket 4. The tab 10 serves as ameans whereby the article may be pulled into place on the foot of the wearer, and the tab, also, serves as a means whereby the ankle socket 4 may be distinguished readily from the foot socket 3.

A pad 11 is located within the foot socket 3, and a means is provided for holding the pad in adjusted positions lengthwise of the socket 3, said means embodying, if desired,

a fastener 12 carried by the pad and adapted to be engaged in any one of a plurality of eyes 14 carried by the lower part of the foot 56 socket 3, the fastener having bendable ends 15 which hold the fastener 12 and the pad in place.

Owing to the fact that the flexible elements 7 and 9 are provided, the device may be adjusted so as to vary the diameter of the foot socket 3 and the ankle socket 4. The flexible elements, being housed between the layers 5 and 6 will neither hurt-the foot of the wearer, nor be worn out, themselves, 0 by contact with the shoe.

What is claimed is A device of the class described, fashioned from an endlessloop-shaped member which is crossed upon itself to define a foot socket a5 and an ankle socket, and to form inner and outer layers at the place of crossing, a flexible element secured at its ends to the inner layer, and a flexible element secured at its ends to the outer layer, both flexible elements being housed between the layers, the flexible elements crossing each other, each flexible element extending between the other flexible element and the layer whereunto said other flexible element is connected.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto aflixed my signature.

ISAAC MERRICK PEASE.
