DANIEL TAN\ ES ATTORNEY D. TAMES SURGICAL GOWNS Aug. 12, 1958 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Filed June 6. 1955 INVENTOR.

DANIEL TAMES ATTORNEY pim! SURGICAL GOWNS Daniel Temes, Chicago, Ill. Application June 6, 1955, Serial No. 513,414 1 Claim. (CI. 2- 114 This inventon relates to surgeons gowns of the type worn when performing a surgical operation. More particularly, it is directed to a novel garment of this type readly adaptable for wear by surgeons having different Clothing size requirements and incorporating special features whereby its sleeves and other parts may be effectively kept in adjusted position.

Surgeon's Operating gowns are usually donned from the front, having a back opening closed by draw strings or other suitable fastening means. Various sizes of these gowns must be kept on hand in the Operating room to accommodate surgeons of differng physiques. This not only involves a considerable investment but also requires time and attention to locate the right size of gown for a particular surgeon. Additionally, it is difficult to keep the garment neatly in position on the wearer to prevent loose folds, baggy sleeves and the like from interfering with the surgeons movements or contacting exposed portions of the patient s anatomy.

To this end, the present invention s directed to a novel surgical gown incorporatng panels or sections including elastic cords or threads. By contraction or expansion (stretching) of these panels or sections, the gown may be conformingly fitted to persons of different sizes and physiques. Thereby, one of the invention gowns may replace several diiferent size surgeon's gowns, considerably reducing the necessary inventory of such gowns.

As a further feature, the sleeves of the present gown are provided with elastic sections, such as elastic bands substantially midway of the forearm and upper arm portions, and elastc strips extending lengthwise of the sleeves. Thereby, when a sleeve is pulled up the arm, it is effectively maintained in adjusted position so as not to slide down at an inauspicious moment and interfere with a surgical manipulation or contact the patienfs bed' For an Understanding of the invention principles, reference is made to the following description of typical embodiments thereof as illustrated in the accompanying drawings.

In the drawings:

Figs. 1 and 2 are, respectively, front and back views of one form of surgical gown embodying the invention;

Figs. 3 and 4, respectively, front and back views of another embodiment of the gown; and

Fig. 5 is ,a front elevation of a sleeve illustrating a modified form of the gown shown in Figs. 3 and 4.

Referring to Figs. 1 and 2, a surgical gown embodying the invention is shown as having a fully closed front 11 including a collar 12, a reinforcing panel 13 just below the collar, and a large front panel 14. Seams 16 extending across the front and around the back define a hem or the like receiving a draw string 15. A second draw string 17 extends through collar 12.

The draw strings and 17 have their ends exposed at the rear of the garment so that, by overlapping edges 18 of open `'back 20, the back may be closed by tying drawstrings 15 and 17. As is known, this type of gown is nited States Parent 2346158& Patented Aug. 12, 1 958 donned from the front, being usually held by a nurse or other assistant While the surgeon extends his arms through the sleeves 25 of the garment. The assistant then ties the garment at the back, so that no fastening means appear at the front of the garment to interfere With the surgeons manipulations.

Sleeves 25 are stitched into the usual sleeve openings by seams 21, and have preferably rib-knitted cufis 22 at their outer ends for gripping the Wearer's wrist just above hand 23.

In accordance with the invention, an elastic strip 39 is formed along each sleeve, as by stitching therealong elastic threads 31 in the stretched condition. Strips 313 extend the `full length of the sleeves from cufis 22 to the upper ends of the sleeves, and the elastic threads 31 are anchored to the sleeve material at frequent intervals along the sleeve. In addition, a similar elastic strip or band 35 extends across the front 11, being formed of elastic threads 36 stitched to the material of the front in stretched condition and anchored thereto at frequent intervals.

When the surgeon dons the gown 10, the elastic strips 35 contract to hold the gown closely to the body at the chest level and without any projecting :folds. The gown material is tucked into small pleats by the contracting strips 35.

The elastic strips 30 on sleeves 25, being stretched when the sleeve is fully extended, continually exert an upward pull on cutfs 22. consequently, should the surgeon push the cuffs 22 up to bare his forearm 2 2- the strips 30 effectively maintain the sleeves 25 above the elbow. Thus, no attention is needed to hold the sleeves 25 retracted.

The strips Si), in addition, accommodate the sleeve length to arms of different length, thus adapting the gown for use by surgeons of different sizes. This fittng of different sized persons is further facilitated by the girth elastic strips 35.

Except for its sleeve Construction, the gown 20' of Figs. 3 and 4 is similar to gown 10 of Figs. 1 and 2, and corresponding parts have been given the same reference characters primed.

In this form of the invention, the elastic strps ?lil are replaced by elastic sections 48 in each sleeve 25', these sections being intermediate of the forearm and constituting elastic bands extending around the sleeve. Strips 4@ are formed of elastic threads 41 extending around the sleeve and stitched to the material thereof at frequent intervals. The strips perform the same ultimate function as strips 323 of Figs. 1 and 2 in maintaining the sleeves firmly in adjusted position on the arm.

As shown in Fig. 5, elastie band 48 may be Supplemented or replaced by a similar elastic band 45 located midway of the upper arm portion and likewise formed by stitching elastic threads or cords 45 to the sleeve material at frequent intervals.

While specific embodments of the invention have been shown and described in detail to illustrate the application of the invention principles, it will be understood that the invention may be embodied otherwise Without departing from such principles.

What is claimed is:

A surgeons Operating gown comprising in combination, a front section, a pair of back sections having free adjacent edges, fastening means for closing said back sections When the gown is donned from the front thereof, a pair of sleeves extending from sleeve openings in said sections, said sleeves each terminating in a rib-km'tted cuif for gripping the wearer`s Wrist just above the hand, each sleeve being provided with an elastic strip extending from the cuff to the shoulder portion of the gown, said 4; i I V elastic strip comprising elastic threads which are stretched 1,193,54S Hart Aug. 8, 1916 in the normal extended position of the sleeve, thereby 1714 491 Em May 28 1929 constantly exerting an Upward pull on the cutf, whereby I y upon occasion to bare the forearm, the corresponding 27239398 Feueg u 1941 strip effectively maintaining the corresponding puff above 5 2,616,086 Isaacson et al Nov. 4, 1952 the elbow, upon pushing the cu& to such position. %643335 Engel J 30, ,1953
