Abstract

The disclosed inventive concept comprises a form-fitting body suit, or thermal juniper for wearing by a person, the jumper further comprising an internalized plurality of separate but integral pads. Each of the pads is secured within a pocket attached to the interior surface of the jumper, the pockets corresponding to the location of specific parts of the human anatomy when the jumper is donned by a wearer. Each pad functions as 1) a conductor of varying ranges of heat and 2) a source of vibration when integral wiring in the pad is activated by electrical current generated by at least one battery or rechargeable battery pack.

  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION (1) Field of the Invention
  • This inventive concept relates to thermal heating pad products and, more particularly, to a wearable thermal heat padded suit for providing users with a way to soothe joint and muscle pain throughout the body and further, promote healing of injuries to the body. Prior versions of thermal garments have been normally provided with internal heating elements. An electrical current directed to the heating element will cause the same to heat the garment and the body around which the garment is disposed.
  • This is particularly important in these times of high energy costs because thermal garments can be worn within a dwelling during winter and the dwelling thermostat can be set at a minimum while the occupants within are warm and comfortable. Thermal garments are a very efficient way of maintaining heating comfort for individuals because a very Minimum area is being heated and the occurrences of heat loss are greatly minimized.

An elastic band on each belt firmly presses the vibratory unit against the belt web when the belt is tightened, so as to prevent irritation-producing movement between the belt and the patient's skin. The motor of the vibratory unit is provided with a carrier bearing and eccentric-operated air flow means to permit miniaturization of the vibratory unit without loss of effectiveness.
  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The disclosed inventive concept comprises a form-fitting body suit, or thermal jumper 1 for wearing by a person, the jumper 1 further comprising an internalized plurality of separate but integral padded elements (items 20-53 and 60-63). Each of the padded elements (collectively, item 9) is securely attached to the interior surface of the jumper 1 so as to correspond to the location of a specific part of the human anatomy when the jumper 1 is donned by a wearer. Reference is made to FIG. 1 and FIG. 2.
  • Each padded element 9 functions as 1) a conductor of varying, ranges of heat and 2) a source of gentle vibrating action when the padded element 9 is activated by electrical current generated by a wrist-worn controller 2 through dc-powered sources. In order to make the disclosed thermal jumper 1 practical and useful, it is necessary to utilize do battery power so that the jumper 1 can be worn without the restrictions and bulkiness of an AC power supply system.
  • The bulkiness and weight factor alone has given rise to many drawbacks and disadvantages and has generally discouraged the wide use and acceptance of such thermal garments. First, an appropriate battery package may be heavy and cumbersome. This functional issue is important since the wearer of the, jumper 1 must transport the electrical supply assembly wherever the jumper 1 is taken. Secondly, a battery package can be expensive and often the life of the associated batteries is relatively short. Finally, those batteries that are rechargeable may require a relatively long period for recharging.
  • The use of thermal garments for outdoor use, either while participating in recreation or at work has been substantial but unsupported to a large extent by suitable electrical power accessory. Accordingly, a need remains for a wearable apparatus in order to overcome the previously-described shortcomings.
  • The present inventive concept satisfies such a need by providing a thermal jumper 1 that is convenient and easy to use. The body suit/jumper 1 is lightweight yet durable in design, versatile in its applications, and constructed to provide a user with a method of soothing joint and muscle pain throughout the body.
