URINAL BAG Filed Dec. 5, 1941 Patented Felo. 9, 1943 URINAL BAG Lila I. Blackburn and Leander 'de Cordova, Los Angeles, Calif.
Application December 5, 1941, Serial No. 421,702
3 Claims.
Our invention relates to a urinal bag, and has for its principal objects, to provide a simple, practical and effective bag-like member composed of flexible waterproof material, preferably rubber, to be worn by males who are unable to control the evacuation of their urine and further, to provide simple and eificient means for conveniently maintaining the bag in comfortable position upon the wearers body.
Further objects of our invention are, to provide a urinal bag which will enable the wearer to urinate comfortably, without fear, annoyance and embarrassment, further, to prevent males having weak bladders from wetting the clothing and bedding, further, to provide a readily removable closure at the lower end of the bag in order to enable the contents of the bag to be conveniently discharged and further, to construct the bag with a trap that functions to effectively prevent the escape of urine from the mouth of the bag while the wearer thereof is sitting or lying down.
With the foregoing and other objects in view, our invention consists in certain novel features of construction and arrangement of parts which will hereinafter be more fully described and claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:
Fig. 1 is a front elevational view of a urinal bag constructed in accordance with our invention. I
Fig. 2 is an enlarged vertical section taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged horizontal section taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is a horizontal section taken on the line 4-4 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 5 is an elevational view of an adjustable loop which forms a point of attachment for elastic holding member.
Referring by numerals to the accompanying drawing which illustrates a preferred embodiment of our invention, I0 designates an elongated bag composed of flexible, waterproof material, preferably rubber, and the lower end of said bag is provided with a discharge opening which is normally closed by a readily removable plug or screw cap I I.
Positioned within the upper portion of the bag I0 is a short bag-like member I2 of thin, flexible waterproof material, preferably rubber and formed at the lower end of said member is a small opening IS.
The upper portion of the wall of member I2 is suitably secured, either by vulcanizing or by an adhesive, the upper portion of the wall of bag I0, thus forming a wall portion I4 of double thickness which serves as a reinforcement for the upper portions of the two bags.
A ring I5 of flexible material, preferably rubber surrounds the upper portion of bag I0, and when the latter is made ready for use, the united portions I4 of the walls of the bag are turned outwardly and wrapped around said ring, thus holding open, the upper ends of both bags.
The body of the flexible ring I5 is oval in cross section so as to minimize thickness of the open upper end of the structure.
Surrounding and loosely arranged upon the upper portion of the bag Ill just below the ring I5 and the wall portion I4 of double thickness which covers said ring, is a ring I6 of rigid or semi-rigid material and formed integral with the upper outer portions thereof on opposite sides of its center are loops H which provide points of attachment for the ends of a two part strap I8 which encircles the wearers body just below the waist line.
The free end of one part of strap I8 carries a buckle I9 which receives the free end of the other portion of the strap, thus enabling the entire strap to be comfortably adjusted on the body.
The end portions of the strap I8 adjacent the loop I! are curved downwardly so as to lie comfortably on the groin portions of the body and enable the ring I5 and upper ends of the bags I0 and I2 to receive the penis without discomfort.
Mounted to slide freely on strap I6 are loops 20, preferably of fabric such as tape, from which depend small plates 2i, of Celluloid fairly stiif leather or the like.
Formed in each plate 2| is a pair of apertures 22 which receive the ends of an elastic cord 23 which passes through the wearers crotch, thus exerting a certain degree of downward pull on the front and rear portions of the belt and prevents the same from working upward on the wearers body.
In applying our urinal bag for use, the penis is received by inner bag I2 and after the strap I8 is comfortably adjusted on the body, the elastic cord 23 is passed between the wearers legs and the ends of said cord are adjustably connected to the perforated plates 2|.
Thus the ring I5 exerts pressure against the connected upper portions of the walls of the bags I 0 and I2 and against the flexible ring I5 around which the doublewalled portions of the bags are wrapped, thus firmly and at the same time comfortably maintaining the bag in proper position.
As urine is passed by the wearer it will flow downwardly through the inner bag I2 and discharge therefrom through the small aperture I3 into the larger longer bag [0.
When convenient the accumulation of urine in bag may be voided by removing cap I l.
Inasmuch as inner bag [2 extends a substantial distance downwardly into the bag [0, a trap is formed between the bags to prevent the escape of urine from the structure while the wearer is sitting or lying down and the effectiveness of this trap is materially increased by providing the inner bag I2 with a small discharge orifice at its lower end.
The construction of the bag is such that it may be easily and quickly cleansed and thereby maintained in a sanitary condition.
Thus it will be seen that we have provided a urinal bag that is relatively simple in construction, inexpensive of manufacture and very effective in performing the functions for which it is intended.
It will be understood that minor changes in the size, form and construction of the various parts of our urinal bag may be made and substituted for those herein shown and described without departing from the spirit of the invention, the scope of which is set forth in the appended claims.
We claim as our invention:
1. In a urinal bag, an elongated bag of flexible waterproof material provided at its lower end with an outlet, removable means normally closing said outlet, a shorter bag of flexible waterproof material positioned within the upper portion of the first mentioned bag and provided at its lower end with a restricted outlet, the upper end portions of the walls of the two bags being permanently secured to each other, a ring surrounding the connected portions of the two bags, said connected portions being wrapped around said ring, a second ring surrounding upper portions of the bags and bearing on the portions thereof that are Wrapped around the first mentioned ring and adjustable means connected to said second ring for securing the bag in position upon wearers body.
2. In a urinal bag, an elongated bag of flexible waterproof material provided at its lower end with an outlet, removable means normally closing said outlet, a shorter bag of flexible waterproof material positioned within the upper portion of the first mentioned bag and provided at its lower end with a restricted outlet, the upper end portions of the walls of the two bags being permanently secured to each other, a ring surrounding the connected portions of said bags with said connected portions wrapped around said ring, a second ring encircling the upper portions of the bags and bearing upon the portions thereof that are wrapped about the first mentioned ring, a body encircling belt secured to said mentioned ring and an elastic cord adjustably connected to said belt and adapted to pass through the wearers crotch.
3. In a urinal bag, an elongated bag of flexible waterproof material provided at its lower end with an outlet, means for normally closing said outlet, a shorter bag of flexible waterproof material within the upper portion of said first mentioned bag and provided at its lower end with a restricted outlet,the upper portions of the two bags being permanently secured to each other, a flexible ring surrounding the connected portions of the bags, said connected being wrapped around said flexible ring, and means for securing the bag in position upon a wearers body, which securing means includes a ring that surrounds the upper portions of the bags that are wrapped around said first mentioned ring.
