SPLINT Filed Nov. 5, 1926 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Patented Dec. 24, 1929 PATENT OFFICE CLARENCE CARVILL, 0F CLINTON, MASSACHUSETTS SPLINT Application filed November This invention relates to surgery.

An object of this invention is to provide an improved splint and bandage, and to provide a splint which is suitable for universal use and quickly adaptable to use upon the leg, arm, feet, back, spine, ribs, or any other por tion of the body.

A further object of this invention is to provide a splint or reinforced bandage or" easy and quick adjustment to the circumference it embraces.

A further object of this invention is to provise a splint which can be dismounted while upon the wearer and can be removed entirely from its holdings while in use, and in which a fracture can be cleansed without removing the splint, and in which an operation can be performed without removing the splint and its pressure upon the patient, and to provide a splint susceptible or" easing up on the patients "fracture.

A further object of this invention is to provide a splint unaffected by moisture, perspiration, or other elements, and one which is quickly and easily cleansed and disinfected without impairment of the splint or its appearance.

vVith the foregoing and other objects in view, I have invented the device shown in the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a plan view 01" one form or" my invention,

Figure 2 is a plan view of a modification,

Figure 3 is a showing of the form in Figure 1, used as a body splint, and

Figure 4 is an enlarged sectional detail of a portion of the device.

Like reference characters indicate like parts throughout the several views and in the specification, in which there is provided a pair of belt-like elements 2, which belt-like elements are preferably formed of a single lower strap 3, to which is stitched a fluted strap 4, leaving in the flutes tubular channels 5. Laced into the tubular channels and interconnecting the belts 2, are rods 6, which rods 6 are preferably of bakelite, or other resin, although they may be made of wood or metal or other suitable elements. Bakelite is most suitable for this, due to the fact that it is ab- 5, 1926. Serial No. 146,371.

solutely nonhygroscopic and unaiiected by of the acids or other elements which would tend to disintegrate, destroy or impair the beauty and appearance of the rods. These rods 6 are slidable within the tubes 5, so that at any time one or more of the rods may be removed, thereby permitting a cleansing of a wound, or operations such as probing for small bone fragments, or for easing up, and for amultitude of purposes which will become obvious to the nurse or physician, which can be accomplished without impairing the support afforded by the splint, and the whole splint may be removed and cleansed by degrees without removing the splint, that is to say, alternate sections may be removed and cleansed and then reinserted, then other alternate sections may be removed and cleansed, with the splint still in its reinforcing position.

The splint sections 6 support by means of F tubes 7, connecting bands 8, which connecting bands 8 are preferably of elastic and are pro vided with terminal hooks 9. These connecting bands are preferably mounted to one of the splint sections, another to another of the splint sections, and the third to still another; and may be arranged to suit the use to which applied. The sliding freedom of the element 8 in its connection with the section 6, by reason or the tube 7, is such that the element 8 may be high or low, and likewise the sliding relation of the bands 2 is such that the section 6 may be either high or low, relative to the bands 2, or certain of the elements 6 may bridge either of the elements 6, providing for various suitable adjustments, and the bands 2 are suitable for universal use in various sizes and shapes by changing, if desired, the stays 6 by substitution of smaller or larger stays.

The hooks 9 are adapted to hook over one of the stays anc, as clearly shown in Figure 3, the elastic bands 8 may pass once or more times about the body of the wearer, or the limb, allowing a multitudinous variation of selective tensions by engaging with the hook 9 any one of the stays 6.

In the modification shown in Figure 2, I show an arrangement especially suitable for an arm splint, in which I use preferably four of the belts 2, and use in the medial ortion long stays 6, and in the side portions a double set of stays 6.

It is obvious that a multitude of variations and arrangements may be had.

It is also obvious that to accommodate different portions of the body varying sizes may be had, or advantage may be taken of the use of a common set of belts using different sized stays with the belts, and it is contemplated 10 by this invention to use either an universal device or a plurality of different devices of this character suitable for bandaging such as the arm, leg, feet, back, spine, or ribs.

Claims:

1. A splint comprising spaced elongated belt-like elements, each of said elements being provided therea-long with a series of tubular members, rods for connecting said elements, each of said rods having one end portion selectively insertible within a tubular member of one element and its opposite end portion selectively insertible within a tubular member of a second element, and a series of elongated retaining bands, each of said bands being secured at one end portion to a rod for sliding movement along said rod, the opposite end portion of said band being provided with means adapted for securement to a selected rod.

2. A splint comprising two series of elongated flexible belt-like elements, each of said elements being provided therealong with tubular members, elongated rods connected to the medial portions of the belt-like elements of both series of such elements and selectively and freely engaged through certain of the tubular members, additional rods connecting the end portions of the elements of each series, said last named rods being freely and selectively engaged through the tubular members carried by the elements of such series, and retaining members associated with the rods at points between the elements of each series.

In testimony whereof I aifix my signature.

-CLARENCE CARVILL.
