' HEMORRHOID TRUSS Filed Aug. 10, 1951 mm vAQMM g2 INVENTOR- Z424 H 1904mm Patented Oct. 28, 1952 Earl H. Holmes, Louisville,- Ky. Application August 10, 1951, Serial No. 241,203

This invention relates to trusses for personal wear, and more particularly to a truss for reducing hemorrhoids. s

It is among the objects of the invention to provide an improved hemorrhoid truss which is freely adjustable to comfortably fit the wearer and is easy to put on and take off; which has a hemorrhoid-reducing pad of improved design which is effective to completely reduce a hemorrhoidal condition and retain the condition reduced without causing discomfort or injury to the wearer; which is clean and sanitary in use; and which is simple and durable in construction, economical to manufacture, and so constructed that its presence is not detectable under clothing.

Other objects and advantages will becomeapparent from a consideration of the followingdescription and the appended claims in conjunction with the accompanying drawing, wherein: Figure 1 is a diagrammatic front elevational view of a fragmentary portion of a human figure showing a hemorrhoid truss illustrative of the of the device with a hemorrhoid-reducing pad mounted thereon;

Figure is a side elevational view of the pad carrier and pad illustrated in Figure 4;

Figure 6 is a fragmentary cross-sectional view on the line 66 of Figure 4;

Figure 7 is a bottom plan view of the resilient pad illustrated in Figures 4 and 5; and

Figure 8 is a perspective view of a fragmentary portion of the pad carrier illustrating a fastener for securing the pad to the carrier.

With continued reference to the drawing, the truss comprises a wide belt II] of flexible material adapted to fit around the waist of a wearer and having tabs II and I2 extending laterally therefrom, one near each end thereof, both tabs extending in the same direction from the belt. A strap I 3 is secured to the belt near one end thereof and extends beyond the adjacent end of the belt and a buckle I4 is secured to the belt near its other end by a loop I5 and receives the strap I3 to pro vide an adjustabl connection between the two ends of the belt.

Straps I6 and I 'I extend laterally from the belt 3 Claims. (Cl. 128-98) in the same direction as the tabs II and I2, one at each side of the mid-length location of the belt, and a pad carrier, generally indicated at I8, is adjustably connected at one end to the straps I6 and I1 and adjustably' connected at its other 4 end to the tabs I I and I2.

The pad carrier I8 includes a substantially triangular end portion I9 having buckles 20 and '2I secured thereto, one at each of two of the corners thereof and respectively receiving the straps I6 and IT, a pad base 22 in the form of an elongated strap of elastic material secured at one end to the triangular end portion I9 at the third corner of this triangular portion and two elongated straps 23 and 24 extending longitudinally from the other end of the base 22 and carrying buckles 25 and 26 at their ends remote from the padbase, which buckles receive the tabs II and I2, respectively, to adjustably connect the front end of the pad carrier to the belt.

Between its two ends the pad base 22 has concavely curved side edges, so that the pad carrier has an intermediate portion of less width than its end portions in order to comfortably fit the body of a wearer.

By means of the straps I6 and I I and the tabs I I and I2, together with the buckles 20, 2 I, Hand 26, the pad carrier can be adjustably secured to the belt to provide the proper operative position of the pad and to insure the comfort of the wearer.

A pad, generally indicated at 21, is carried on the base 22 of the pad carrier and is formed of a highly elastic material,- such as sponge or foam rubber. This pad is of an elongated, somewhat triangular shape, having a wide end 28 disposed near the proximal ends of the straps 23 and 24 and a narrow end 29 disposed near the end of the pad base 22 which is attached to the triangular end portion I 9 which is in turn attached to the rear portion of the belt Ill. The pad 21 is rounded in cross-sectional shape, as illustrated in Figure 6, and is provided with a central ridge forming rounded peaks 30 and 3| which fit the crotch of the wearer with the larger peak 30 in engagement. with the hemorrhoid to maintain the hemorrhoid in a reduced condition.

The pad is detachably secured to the base 22 by suitable fastening means, the means illustrated comprising spring hooks 32 embedded in the material of the pad and projecting from the under side thereof, one near each corner of the pad, and eyes 33 secured to the base 22 and disposed on the upper side of the base to receive the pad-carried hooks 32.

all respects as illustrative and not restrictive, the scope of the invention being indicated by the;

appended claims rather than by theforego'ing description, and all changes which'come-within' the meaning and range of;equivalencyottheclaims are, therein.

What is claimed is:

1. A hemorrhoid truss comprising a wide belt having tabs extending laterally in the. same direction therefrom one at each end thereof, means on said belt for adjustably securing the ends thereof together, straps extending later: ally from said belt in the sam direction as said tab one at each side of the mid-length location of the belt, a pad carrier adjustably secured at one end to said straps and at its other end to saidtabs, and a pad of elastic material carried on said pad carrier intermediate the length of the latter, said pad being of elongated, generally triangular shape and having a narrow end disposed adjacent the end of said pad carrier con nected to said straps and a wide end disposed adjacent the end of said pad carrier connected to said tabs, said straps being adapted to be positioned at the back and said tabs at the front of the body of the wearer of the truss. V

2. A hemorrhoid truss comprising a belt adapted to surround the waist of the wearer and having ends adapted to be disposed at the front 4 of a wearers body, means carried by said belt for adjustably connecting the nds thereof together, a pad carrier adjustably connected at one end to said belt at the ends thereof and adjustably connected at its other end to said belt adjacent the mid-length location of the latter, said pad carrier having an intermediate portion of less width than its end portion, a pad of elastic material disposed on said pad carrier intermediate 'thelength, of the latter, mem -ans 'detachably connecting said pad tosaid'pad carrierfsaid pad being of elongated somewhat triangular shape having a wide end adjacent said one end and a narrow end adjacent said other end of said pad carrier and providing intermediate the width thereof a longitudinally extending ridge project- I ing away from said pad carrier. therefore, intended to be embraced 3. A hemorrhoid truss comprising a belt adapted to surround the waist of the wearer and having ends adapted to be disposed at the front of a wearers body, means carried bysaid belt for adjustably connecting th ends thereof together, a pad carrier adjustably connected at one end to said belt atthe ends thereof and adjustably connected at its other end to said belt adjacent the mid -length location of the latter, said pad carrier having an intermediate portion of less width than its end portion, a pad of elastici material disposed on said pad carrier intermediate the length of the lattenmeans detachably. connecting said pad to said pad carrier, said pad being of elongated somewhat triangular shape having a wide end adjacent said one end and a narrow and adjacent said other end of said pad carrier and providing intermediate the'width thereof a longitudinally extending ridge projecting away from said pad carrier, and afabriccover overlying said pad and marginally engaged therewith.
