Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • The present application claims benefit of and priority from the U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 61/473,580 filed on Apr. 8, 2011 and titled “Sun Screen”. The entire disclosure of this provisional application is incorporated herein by reference.
  • TECHNICAL FIELD
  • The present invention relates to means of protection from excessive exposure to solar radiation and, more particularly, to a sun screen configured for use by a person within a vehicle.
  • BACKGROUND ART
  • It is a very common practice for a person inside a vehicle to extend a portion of an arm outwardly beyond the window. If the arm so extended is directly exposed to sunlight, the person will experience sunburn. To address this problem, various garments have been proposed. And yet no solution has addressed the problem completely. A need still exists for a single-arm garment which would shield not only a wearer's arm, but also a shoulder, and/or neck and, possibly, a wearer's hand as well from sunburn, and which is not coupled with or affixed to the neck or head portions of the body.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • Embodiments of the present invention provide a sun screen article and method of exploitation of the sun screen article. One embodiment includes a tubular body having input and output ends that are opposite to one another; a flap securely connected to said input end along a portion of a perimeter of said input end to define a dihedral angle between a surface of the flap and a surface of the tubular body; a collar portion integrated with the flap along a second side of the flap that is opposite to the portion of a perimeter of the input end to which the flap is secured; and a strap having first and second strap ends. The strap may be attached, at its first end, to the flap proximate the second side of the flap, either permanently or removably, and have its second end configured to be securely attachable to the flap proximate the portion of a perimeter of the input end to which the flap is secured. In a specific embodiment, the attached strap defines an epaulette on the flap, which is configured to securely accommodate a vehicular shoulder harness, which in one embodiments may be a seat-belt, between the epaulette and the flap when the sun screen is worn within a vehicle. In one embodiment, the collar portion may be configured to extend transversely with respect to the flap and, optionally, to conceal the first end of the strap attached to the flap from being observable.
  • In addition, an embodiment of a sun screen may further comprise fastening means attached to at least one end of the strap. The sun screen may be further configured as a sleeve dimensioned to accommodate, inside the tubular body, an arm of a person wearing the sleeve inside a vehicle, when the fingers of the person remain substantially outside of the output end and the flap covers the person's shoulder and the collar portion covers at least a lower portion of the person's neck, with the epaulette being adapted to restrict a shoulder harness under the epaulette such as to removably retain the tubular body of the sleeve from sliding down the arm of the person.
  • Another embodiment provides a sun screen for use in a vehicle that includes a sleeve having an input end and an output end and an internal cavity extending between these ends, the sleeve appropriately configured to receive an arm of a person inside the vehicle through said input end and to fit over said arm while enclosing said arm within the internal cavity and allowing the person's fingers to project outwardly beyond the output end; and shoulder harness attachment means in re-affixable communication with the sleeve. In one specific embodiment, the shoulder harness attachment means is configured to fit over the seat belt worn by the person while sitting in a car seat next to a vehicular window and to enclose a portion of the seat belt within a loop that is defined, at least on one side, by said shoulder harness attachment means. These shoulder harness attachment means is further adapted to substantially prevent the shoulder harness from sliding down the sleeve.
  • In one embodiment, the sleeve of the sun screen may include a placket at the output end of the sleeve, and further have the interfacing ends of such placket to be releasably affixable to one another with a use of at least one of a hook, a button, a Velcro, a snap, and a zipper. The embodiment of the sun screen may further include a shoulder portion at the input end, which is dimensioned to cover a shoulder and to extend to a neck of the wearer. Moreover, the shoulder harness attachment means of such embodiment may incorporate a strap having its first end attached to at least one of the sleeve and the shoulder portion and another end releasably attachable to at least one of the first end of the strap, the shoulder portion, and the sleeve. Such shoulder harness attachment means may be configured as an epaulette of the sleeve.
  • Yet another embodiment of the invention provides a method for screening an arm of a person sitting inside a vehicle next to a window from sunlight with a sun screen having a body with input and output openings and a strap affixable to the body, the length of the body being substantially commensurate with the length of the arm. The method includes at least the steps of extending the body over the arm such as to have the arm pass through the input opening and inside the body until the fingers are substantially outside of the output opening projecting outwardly therefrom, and until the input opening is positioned proximate to a person's shoulder; fastening the shoulder harness (which in one embodiment may be a vehicular seat belt); and removably attaching the strap to the body such as to form a loop around a portion the shoulder harness and define the loop at least on one side by the strap. The loop so defined constrains the shoulder harness and prevents the body of the sun screen from sliding down the arm. The used sun screen may be adapted to have a first end of the strap to be permanently affixed to the body proximate the input opening and a second end of the strip to contain fastening means. The step of removably attaching the strap to the body may include wrapping the strap over the shoulder harness such as to prevent the body from sliding down the arm and, optionally, affixing the second end of said strap proximate to the first end. Moreover, the strap may be configured to be removably attachable, with the use of fastening means to the sun screen's body at both ends of the strap.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • Definitions. For the purpose of this disclosure and claims appended herein, the following terms are defined to have meanings as indicated below unless required by context otherwise. A loop generally refers to a ring-like figure formed by a portion of a cord, ribbon, strap etc., that is folded or doubled upon itself at least once (or, in the alternative, that is attached at its ends to another element) so as to leave an opening between the parts, or anything having or forming this figure. For example, a ring-like fastening, whether tight or loose, formed by a belt around a person's waist provides an example of a loop.
  • The ordinary motorist (or his passenger) may wish to shield a hand and an arm from sunburn while driving along on his or her usual daily route, or on longer vacations drives. Air conditioning is great, but driving on a lovely day with one's arm resting on the ledge of an open car window is found enjoyable by many drivers. The driver's enjoyment, however, can be shattered if the drive results in severe sunburn to the hand, arm, shoulder, and neck. This problem is exacerbated in case of a long-distance driving such as trucking. This creates a concomitant problem of forcing the driver (and/or a passenger) of the vehicle to store a jacket or other garment in the vehicle for the express purpose of wearing such garment to protect the arm beyond the window of the vehicle from being sunburned.
  • The garment designs of the related art disclose some features beneficial to the driver's needs. A single-arm type of garment would be most useful since usually, at least for drivers, the left hand and/or arm is the most likely to be sunburned. The solutions of the related art have several shortcomings. To begin with, some solutions do not take into account the safety aspect of the design of a corresponding garment. In particular, such solutions are configured to be attached to the head or the neck of the person wearing a garment, which, in the case any other portion of the garment is pulled or dragged away, would impose a physical strain on the person wearing the garment. It is appreciated that the successful design of interest should not result in a conventional long-sleeve shirt or jacket in that it should not cover the trunk of the person wearing it, and should accommodate the specifics of being worn inside the vehicle. Moreover, even when a proposed garment is not fixated to a portion of the wearer's body, such garment leaves a shoulder and/or a portion of the neck exposed to direct sun-light, thereby creating an awkward situation when an arm of the wearer is screened from the sun but the shoulder and/or the neck is not. Put simply, such garment provides only a partial solution to being sun-burned. Consequently, a need still exists for a single-arm garment which would shield at least a driver's arm, shoulder, and neck or, possibly, a driver's hand as well from sunburn and that is de-coupled and not attached to with the neck or head portions of the body at the same time. The garment should preferably be fabricated of sun-resistant, durable, washable material and of simple design and construction for easy wearability by a driver. The simplicity of design and construction would also ensure inexpensive manufacture of the garment. The garment should be foldable to a compact size for easy storage and transport.
  • Embodiments of a sun screen article configured to protect a forearm, an upper arm, a shoulder and, optionally, a portion of the neck of a person from excessive solar radiation exposure through a window of a vehicle is schematically illustrated herein in several views. Referring to the drawings and, particularly, to FIGS. 1(A-C), an embodiment 100 of the sun screen is shown to include a tubular portion having an input end 102 a and an output end 102 b; a flap 104 attached to the open end 102 a along a portion 106 of the perimeter of the open end 102 a; and a strap 108 that is attachable to the flap 104 at the ends of the strap such as to form an epaulette defining an openable gap between the epaulette and the surface of the flap 104 after the strap has been attached at its both ends. In one embodiment, the flap 104 may be integrated with the tubular portion having through a curved seam line defining a dihedral angle between the surfaces of the flap and the tubular portion. Alternatively, the flap may be formed by a seamless continuation of the tubular portion (not shown) such as to define one region of the tubular portion 102 a that is longer than another region of the tubular portion 102 a. In this specific embodiment, the longer-protruding and shorter-protruding regions define an opening, of the input end 102 a, that is generally oblique with respect to the tubular portion itself. In either case, the tubular portion 102 and the flap 104 are appropriately dimensioned such that both the arm and the shoulder of a person, that has pulled his hand through the input end 102 a into the tubular portion 102 until his fingers protrude outwards through the output end 102 b, as shown in FIGS. 1(A-C), are covered.
  • In further reference to FIGS. 1(A-C) and referring to FIG. 2, an embodiment 100 of the sun screen article may further include a collar portion 110 that has at least one material layer and is attached to the flap 104 at its free end along a curved peripheral portion 202 of the flap 104. The curved peripheral portion 202 is generally opposite to the perimeter portion 106. Preferably, the collar portion 110 includes a portion protruding transversely with respect to the flap 104. As shown in FIG. 2, the collar portion 110 includes two material layers 110 a, 110 b connected to each other through a fold 204 such as to increase the stiffness of the collar portion 110. The collar portion 110 is judiciously dimensioned such as to cover at least a lower portion of the neck of the person wearing the sun screen article and, optionally, most of the neck at a side of the neck that corresponds to the sun screen article when worn.
  • The strap 108 may be attached to the flap 104 permanently at one end of the strap and removably at the other end of the strap (e.g., one end of the strap could be sewn to the flap while another end may contain fastening means such as a button/button-hole, a hook/hook-eye, Velcro, snap-fasteners or other equivalent means). Alternatively, both ends of the strap 108 can be configured to be re-attachable to the flap 104 b at the discretion of the user, with the help of at least one of the above-listed fastening means at each of the ends of the strap. In the embodiment of FIG. 2, for example, the permanently-attached end of the strap 104 is normally concealed from view by the collar portion 110. In operation, another end 210 of the strap 108, shown in FIG. 2 to include a fastening means 212 (shown as a patch of Velcro), is pulled over a portion of the shoulder harness 216 such as, for example, a seat belt, and removably affixed, through the means 212 in proximity of the open end such as to partially restrict the movement of the shoulder harness within a loop that is formed by the strap 108 and the flap 104 once both ends of the strap 108 are articulated with the flap. Referring now to FIG. 3, this capture of the shoulder harness, made possible by the strap-defined openable loop 308, prevents the embodiment of the sun screen article from sliding down the person's arm even with no other movement-restrictive means such as belts, lock, ribbons etc that are conventionally employed by garments of the related art.
  • As shown in FIGS. 4(A, B), embodiment 400 may include a placket 402 at the output end of the tubular body 102, which facilitates the wearing of the sun screen article on the arm and allows to cover a portion of the hand of the wearer once the placket's ends are cooperated with one another through the attachment means 404 (shown as a button and a button-hole). The presence of a placket portion 402 accommodates the thumb of a driver and allows it to protrude outwards from inside the tubular body 102 so as to freely, without restriction, grasp the steering wheel of the car while still covering an upper region of his hand.
  • An embodiment 500 of FIG. 5A illustrates an alternative structure of the sun screen article of the invention including a sleeve 502 having an open slit 504 extending along the sleeve between the input and output ends 502 a, 502 b of the sleeve 502. The sleeve 502 contains a substantially rectangular or, in a specific embodiment, trapezoidal piece 506 of flexible material that is turned upon itself at its first side and that has two corners corresponding to this side connected to each other, either permanently or reattachably, so as to form the open input end 502 a that has a closed perimeter. To this input end 502 a the flap 104 is attached, as described above, along the perimeter curve 106 that, in a specific embodiment, includes a curved seam. A side of the piece 506 that is opposite to the input end 502 a is adapted to have fastening means (not shown) so as to be closable upon itself thereby defining the output end 502 b, by analogy with that described in reference to FIG. 4, and an opening to accommodate a thumb. The embodiment 500 provides, therefore, an open slit or area 504 extending between that is configured to facilitate the ventilation of the arm otherwise covered by the sun screen article 500.
  • FIG. 5B depicts another alternative embodiment of the invention in which a tubular body 520 has a seam 524 extending between an open end 520 a and a tip 526 of a placket 528. In addition, the end of the placket 528 corresponding to an output end 520 b of the body 520 has fastening means (not shown) equivalent to those as described above. It is worth noting that, while tubular body 102 require at least two independent process steps to create a placket portion 402 as part of the body 102 of FIGS. 1(A-C), and 2 through 4(A,B), embodiments of FIGS. 5(A, B) have the placket fabricated in one step at the same time as the corresponding body 502, 520 is formed by either sawing the opposite sides of the material layer together at a point in proximity to the output end 502 b (FIG. 5A) or sewing the opposite sides of the material layer together along the majority of its length to create a seam 524 (FIG. 5B).
  • FIGS. 6 (A, B) show, in more detail, the arrangements of the output portion of the embodiment of FIG. 5B including the coordination between the seam 524, the placket 528, and the output end 520 b.
  • In reference to FIGS. 7(A, B), another alternative embodiment of the invention is shown to include a sleeve 702 having an input end 702 a, an output end 702 b, and a strap 708 attached, at one of its ends, 709, in proximity to the input end 802 a and adapted to form a loop around vehicular shoulder harness, as described above. In a specific embodiment, the length of the strap is judiciously chosen to be longer than about twice the width of a typical shoulder harness such as vehicular seat-belt by the amount sufficient to accommodate attachment means 710 (a patch of Velcro, for example) to another, free end of the strap 712. The output end 702 b may define a ring-like opening or, in a specific embodiment, may include a placket as described in reference to FIG. 4, which simplifies the process of putting the sun screen article onto the arm and accommodates a thumb for firmer grasp of the steering wheel. This embodiment of the sun screen article is essentially adapted to cover the arm and an upper portion of the hand of the person wearing it. As shown, a seam 716 is configured to define a placket 718 in a manner similar to that described in reference to FIGS. 5B and 6A(, B).
  • While the invention is described through the above-described exemplary embodiments, it will be understood by those of ordinary skill in the art that modifications to, and variations of, the illustrated embodiments may be made without departing from the inventive concepts disclosed herein. For example, the output end of an embodiment may include a mitten covering the fingers of the wearer completely, therefore configuring the embodiment such as to provide total coverage of the wearer's lower neck, shoulder, arm, and hand with fingers, excepting the wearer's thumb only. It should be readily apparent that an embodiment can be made in different sizes, be made of fabric that is appropriately flexible to assure comfortable wearing, and that is optionally treated with means blocking UV radiation, such as, e.g., UV blocking solution, and that is provides protection from exposure to solar radiation whether or not the arm of the wearer is extended from the vehicle. However, the type of material used for fabrication of claimed embodiments is not limited to any particular fabric. Embodiments of the invention are ergonomically correct and functional at the same time, in that they are structured to reduce the physical confinement and associated discomfort of the wearer while at the same time increasing the wearer's operational flexibility and safety. The same embodiment of a sun screen article is reversible in that it can be worn on either left or right arm without modifications. Worn on either arm, the strap as well as the thumb opening is in the correct orientation with respect to the wearer. It is also appreciated that modern implementations of shoulder harness may include the shoulder portion of the harness and the lap belt integrated with one another and sharing a single belt strap. Alternatively, a shoulder harness may include two individual belt-straps, one securing the shoulder of the wearer and another securing his lap. Furthermore, disclosed aspects, or portions of these aspects, may be combined in ways not listed above. Accordingly, the invention should not be viewed as being limited to the disclosed embodiment(s).
