Description

Oct. 1, 1935. E. 1.. MANN PERSPIRATION ABSORBER Filed Dec. 4, 1954 ,lf'av-lll Maura INVENTOR 76 jfam ATTOF/CNEY Patented- Oct. 1, 1935 UNITED "STATES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.

This invention is a device for absorbing perspiration which forms upon a persons forehead. Persons who are obliged to wear glasses are annoyed and handicapped in hot weather by rea- 5 son of perspiration forming upon the forehead and then running down into the eyes and forming a mist upon the glasses which seriously interferes' with the vision. Persons engaged in athletic games and sports are often obliged to stop their performance and wipe from their eyes the perspiration which has collected from the forehead. The present invention overcomes these inconveniences by providing a light inexpensive device which may be worn across the forehead just above the eyebrows and will absorb all moisture flowing to the eyes. The device is illustrated in the accompanying drawing and the invention consists in certain novel features which will be particularly defined in the claims following a detailed description.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device as in use.

Figure 2 is a view partly in plan and partly in 5 longitudinal section.

Figure 3 is an enlarged detail section on the lin 3-3 of Figure 2.

A device embodying the invention comprising a pad of small blocks I of absorbent material,

0 preferably sponge, strung upon a flexible band 2 which may conveniently be a twisted wire. One end of the wire is doubled on itself to form an eye 3 and the opposite end of the wire is formed into a book 4. In the eye 3 is secured one end of a flexible strap 5, the opposite end of the strap being formed into a loop 6 fastened by a slide or buckle l and carrying a ring 8.

When the device is to be used, the pad or string of absorbent blocks is placed across the 49 forehead Just above the eyebrows, as shown in Figure 1, and the strap 6 is passed back of the head and brought to the hook 4 over which the ring 8 is engaged, the slide or buckle being adjusted so that the pad will be held in place firmly but without discomfort. Any moisture which may collect upon the forehead will then be absorbed 5 by the padbefore it can reach the eyes so that the wearer's vision will remain clear and unaiiected by weather or temperature.

The device is exceedingly simple and inexpenslve. The band 2 and the sponge blocks are very 1 flexible so that the device will readily adjust itself to the shape of the wearers forehead and 1. A device for the purpose stated comprising a series of blocks of absorbent material, a flexible 5 band on which'the blocks are removably strung, and a flexible adjustable retaining strap engaged with the ends of the band.

2. A device for the purpose stated comprising a series of sponge blocks, a flexible band on which 3 the blocks are removably strung, and a headgirdling member attached to said band.

3. A device for the purpose stated comprising a flexible wire having an eye at one end and a hook at the opposite end, a series of sponge 35 blocks strung on the wire, and an extensible flexible strap secured at one end in the eye on the wire and having a ring at its opposite end engageable on the hook on the wire.
