United States Patent FOOT MASSAGING DEVICE Steve Juhasz, Hammond, La. Application July 5, 1957, Serial No. 670,140

3 Claims. (c1. 128-60) This invention relates to foot massaging devices, and more specifically, the instant invention pertains to the provision of a device for relieving tired and aching feet, and to improve blood circulation therethrough.

One of the primary objects of this invention is to provide a foot massaging device of the type described above which is non-complex in construction and assembly, inexpensive to manufacture, and durable in use.

Other and further objects and advantage of the present invention will become more evident upon a consideration of the following specification when read in conjunction with the annexed drawing, in which:

Figure l is a top plan view of a foot massaging device, constructed in accordance with the teachings of this invention;

Figure 2 is a side elevational view of the foot massaging device illustrated in Figure 1;

Figure 3 is an end elevational view of the foot massaging device;

Figure 4 is a detail cross-sectional view taken sub stantially on the vertical plane of line 4-4 of Figure 1, looking in the direction of the arrows; and

Figure 5 is a perspective view of one of the massaging members.

Referring now more specifically to the drawing, reference numeral designates, in general, a massage device constructed in accordance with this invention. The device 10 is seen to comprise an elongated substantially rectangular support 12 having an upper convex side 14.

Reference numeral 16 denotes a plurality of prismatic polygonic members, one of which is shown in perspective in Figure 5. Each of the members is formed, preferably, of a solid plastic material having opposed triangular ends at 18, 20 disposed in parallel relation. Each of the faces 22, 24 and 26 of the members 16 have the configuration of an equilateral parallelogram, and the planes of the faces 22, 24 intersect to form an edge or apex 28 oppositely disposed with respect to the face 26.

As seen in Figure 1 of the drawing, the members 16 are arranged in side-by-side relation with the faces 26 thereof juxtaposed with respect to the convex side 14 of the support' 12. Any conventional means may be used as, for example, waterproof glue to secure the members 16 to the support 12. The arrangement of the members 16 on the support 12 is such that the apex 28 of one of said members 16 is disposed substantially perpendicular to the apex 28 of each adjacent member 16 and that the apices of all of the members 16 are disposed in a common curvilinear plane extending transversely of the longitudinal axis of the support 12 (see Figures 3 and 4).

To utilize this device, the user is in a seated position with the device 10 placed on the floor adjacent his feet. The toes of one or both feet are then placed over the members 16 and the feet are then rocked backwardly until the heel engages thereagainst. Thereafter the foot motion is reversed in direction.

Having described and illustrated one embodiment of this invention in detail, it will be understood that the same is offered merely by way of example, and that the invention is to be limited only by the scope of the following appended claims.

What is claimed is:

l. A massaging device comprising an elongated substantially rectangular support having a convex side; a plurality of prismatic members, each face of each of said members being an equilateral parallelogram; said members each having one face thereof juxtaposed with respect to said support, said one faces being arranged in side-by-side relationship with the apex of one of said members being angularly inclined with respect to the apex of a next adjacent one of said members; and means fixedly securing said members to said support.

2. A foot massaging device comprising an elongated substantially rectangular support having a convex side; a plurality of prismatic members each of said members having a pair of opposed substantially triangular ends and each face of each of said members being an equilateral parallelogram; said members each having one face thereof juxtaposed with respect to said support, said one faces being arranged in side-by-side relationship with the apex of each one of said members and being disposed at an angle of substantially 90 with respect to the apex of a next adjacent member.

3. A massaging device comprising an elongated substantially rectangular support having a convex side; a plurality of prismatic members, each face of each of said members being an equilateral parallelogram; said members each having one face thereof juxtaposed with respect to said support, said one faces being arranged in side-by-side relationship with the apex of one of said members being angularly inclined with respect to the apex of a next adjacent one of said members and with the apices of all of said members disposed in a common curvilinear plane extending transversely of the longitudinal axis of said support; and means fixedly securing said members to said support.
