ELASTIC BANDAGE FOR VARICOSE VEINSJ 84C.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 366,590, dated July 12, 1887.

Application filed May 2S, 1887. Serial No. 239,645,

T0 @ZZ wtont it may concern:

Beit known that I, LEON T. J. LUBIN, of Boston, in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Elastic Hose or Vebbing for Varicose Veins, Veak Limbs, Src., of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention consists of an elastic hose or webbing, Sie., for use for varicose veins, weakness inthe limbs aud joints and other parts of the body of a person, constructed in any of the usual forms, and having a slit or opening in one side, all substantially as hereinafter fully described; and the invention also consists of such elastic hose or webbing having a slit or opening in one side secured together at its edges, all substantially as hereinafter fully described, reference being had to the aecompanying plate of drawings, in which- Figure l is a side view of a person, showing the application thereto of elastic hose or webbing, die., constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is a side view of such elastic hose made in the form required especially for and called a knee-cap. Fig. 3 is a crosssection on line 3 3, Fig. 2. Figs. 4- and 5 are side and back views of the knee-cap shown in Fig. 3 reduced in size, showing its edges secured together; and Fig. G is a detail view of Fig. 4L. enlarged, to be hereinafter' referred to.

ln the drawings, A represents the body of a man in side view having applied thereto elastic hose or webbing, &c., constructed in accordance with this invention, as shown at B to the elbow, at C to the abdomen, at D to the leg, E the knee, and F the ankle.

This elastic hose or webbing is constructed of silk, cotton, or of any suitable material,'

which is wove or knit in any of the usual ways, and to fit around the part of the person on which it is to be applied and worn, all as usual in suchl articles, and needing no particular description herein, except so far as relates to the present invention. Usually in making such articles the side a ofthe several parts is made whole, like the opposite side, b, or in the same manner; but .when so made, in bending the knee or the elbow or the ankle, or in bending over the body, such side c is more or less apt to full up and wrinkle, which is uncom- (No model.)

fort-able and disagreeable to the wearer, and the present invention is to obviate this trouble, and this is accomplished by cutting a slit or opening, G, ou the inner side of the knee portion of the hose, as shown, also on the front of the ankle, at the inside of the elbow, and on the abdomen-belt at the front, and this can be done when weaving or knitting the hose or webbing, and thus make or finish the edges d of the slit or opening G at such time in the same manner as the other edges of the hose are finished; or the hose can be cnt after it is made, and then the eut edges el covered or bound with any suitable braid or material to properly hold the weaving or stitches or prevent them from becoming loosened or undone.

In Figs. 2 and 3 the invention is particularly shown as applied to a knee-cap, showing the opening or slit G in one side. It can also be applied to the ankle alone, and not connected tothe hose for the rest of the leg, or to the elbow alone, or to the abdomen. The slit can be merely a straight cut from the edge H, or a piece can be cut out of V shape, as shown, which is preferable, or it can be opened in any suitable manner.

In Figs. 4, 5, and 6 the kneecap is shown as provided with a strip, H, of braid or tape, &c., secured to the two edges d at the side a of the knce'cap, which secures the two edges of the opening G and prevents the spreading and enlarging ofthe opening more than is desired.

In Figs. 4 and 5 the strip Il is shown as sccured to the edges d permanently, but in Fig. 6 it is shown as secured by the button-holesf in the strip over the buttons L on the strip, by which the knee-cap can be attached to and detached from the knee-cap at pleasure. This strip 'H can be of any length desired, and can be of any suitable material, elastic or otherwise, and secured iu any suitable manner, or can be a continuation of the binding or weaving at such place, and can be attached to the elbow or other portions'as well as to the kneecap.

Vhen an elastic hose or webbing constructed according to this invention is ap!- plied to a person, the opening or slit G prevents a fulling or folding up or wrinkling of the edge H under the k nee, in the elbow, on

e y v season the abdomen, and at the front of the ankle, making such articles the more comfortable and easy for the wearer at such places, at the sanne time not interfering with the practical benefits derived from their use.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is v 1. An elastic hose or webbing for application to a persons body, provided with a slit" or opening, G, for the purpose specified.

2. An elastic hose or webbing for application to a persons body, provided with a slit or opening, G, and secured-by a strip, H, for the purpose specified.

3. An elastic hose or webbing for applica- 15 tion to a persons body, provided with a slit or opening, G, secured by a strip, II, adapted to be attached thereto and detached therefrom, for the prpose specified.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my zo hand in the presence of two subscribing Witnesses. l
