Description

(No Model) G. SJ GRANSON- TRUSS PAD.

No. 499,823. Patented June 20, 1893.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

GILES S. ORANSON, OF JONESVILLE, MICHIGAN.

TRUS S-PAD.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 499,823, dated June 20, 1893. Application filed June 24,1892. Serial No. 437,840. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, GILES S. ORANSQN, a.citi' is a face view of my improved pad attached to a band or belt. the same.

Like letters of reference refer to like parts in both figures.

A represents the body of the pad which may be constructed of wood, gutta percha or any other suitable material and B is the belt to which the pad is secured by a screw 17 or other fastening. The face of the pad is preferably concave as shown, so as to conform to the body of the wearer.

Fig. 2 is a cross section of C is a ring of rubber or other soft and yield ing material surrounding'the edge of the pad and forming the marginal portion of its face.

This ring is seated in an annular groove or depression at formed in the edge of the pad and is preferably held in place by springing it into the groove. lrVhen the pad is in place, the face of the yielding ring 0 bears against the body of the wearer, around the ruptured part, and owing to its frictional resistance, prevents the pad from slipping or becoming displaced. The yielding ring also serves to cushion the pad against the pelvis bone and thereby prevents irritation.

E represents a number of ribs or corrugations formed in the concave face of the 'pad, preferably concentrically,

drawings. These ribs or corrugations embed themselves in the flesh by the pressure of the pad against the body of the wearer, and thereby aid in retaining the pad in place over the rupture.

as shown in the The rubber ring 0, in addition to holding the pad against slipping, also serves as a packing which preventsthe liquid in the sponge from dripping down below the pad and soiling the garments of the wearer. By-providing the pad with the ring 0 and the corrugations E, comparatively little pressure is required to retain the pad in place and hold the rupture in its natural position, thus rendering the pad comfortable to the wearer.

In the drawings, my improvements are shown in connection with a circular pad, but they may be applied'with equal advantage to a pad of oval or other form.

I claim as my invention- 1. A truss pad having a concave face provided in its edge with a groove, and a rubber ring sprung into said groove and forming the marginal bearing face of the pad, substantially as set forth. I

2. A truss pad having a concave face provided with a central pocket for an absorbent body, a groove in its edge, a soft rubber ring confined in said groove and forming the marginal bearing face of the pad, and concentric corrugations formed in the face of the pad between itscentral pocket and its marginal ring, substantially as set forth.

Witness my hand this 20th day ofJune, 1892.

GILES s. oRANsoN.
