GATAMENIAL RE CEPTACLE Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented March 2, 1909.
T 0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, PAUL J. SonnLLEn and NORMAN I. HAAs, citizens of the United States, residing at Evansville, in the county of Vanderburg and State of Indiana, have invented a new and useful Catamenial Receptacle, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to catamenial receptacles, and has for its object to provide a simple, convenient and cleanly article of this class adapted to fit the body of a woman and inclose the vulva for the purpose of receiving and temporarily retaining the menstrual secretions and on occasions, urine.
The receptacle com rises a long narrow plate curved to fit c osely the body of a woman about the external organs of generation and provided with a longitudinal depression in the center to receive the scoretions and convey them to a funnel shaped cup having a screw cap on its lower end.
With this object in view, the invention consists of the novel construction and combination of arts hereinafter described and claimed anc illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of the invention; Fig. 2 a central longitudinal sectional view of the same; and Fig. 3 a cross sectional view on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.
Similar reference characters are used for the same parts in all the figures.
In the drawing, 1 indicates a long narrow plate of metal, rubber or other suitable material and which is curved flatwise to fit close against the body of a woman from near the anus forwardly between the legs and over the mons veneris, and held in position by elastic straps 2 attached to pivoted rings 3, one at each end of the plate, leading upwardly and buttoned or otherwise fastened to a suitable support, such as a belt or girdle. The edges 4 of the plate are curved to the contour of the legs between which it passes.
In the longitudinal center of the plate 1 is a shallow elongated depression or trough 5 of such length and disposition with relation to the late that said depression or trough exten s from the perineum in the rear, forward to the anterior commissure when the receptacle is applied to the body. The depression 5is near y as wide as the plate 1, a narrow strip of the latter lying on each side of the depression, the edges of which are approximately parallel to the edges of the )late.
Applied to the under side of tie plate 1 near its rear end is a funnel shaped cup 6, flat on its sides but widening at front and back from its lower end upward to the plate 1, the front of the cup being continuous with the bottom of the depression 5. The top of the cup 6 is tightly covered by the plate 1 eX- cept at its front which is open, this opening belng the rear end of the trough. The bottom 7 of the cup 6 is made cylindrical and threaded for a threaded closure 8, which is to be removed when the contents of the cup are to be discharged.
The upper surface of the late 1 is provided with a soft lining 9 of fe t or other suitable material over its whole surface except at the center, where it is cut away to give free access to the trough.
When the receptacle is applied, the plate fits so closely to the body that there is no possibility for odors and secretions to escape and soil the erson and clothes; it is easily and quickly cleaned and made antiseptic and thoroughly sanitary and therefore a preserver of health; and finally the article may remain in place when urinating, as it is only necessary for the wearer to unscrew the closure 8, preferably connected to the cup by a chain 10, and let the water pass through the receptacle, and on occasions where the desire to pass water is so great and no place accessible, the contents of the bladder may be voided into the cup 6 and emptied therefrom when convenient.
We claim 1. An article of the class described comprising a flat spring plate having a central longitudinal trough or depression, a funnel shaped cup secured fluid tight on the under side of said plate near its rear end, the front inclined side of said cup being continuous with said trough, a soft lining covering the upper side of said plate, and means attached to each end of said plate for securing the article in osition.
2. article of the class described comprising a flat longitudinal curved spring plate having curved edges and a shallow central longitudinal trough or depression, a soft lining covering the upper surface of said plate and provided with an opening for access to the trough, a cup secured fluid tight on the under side of the rear end of said plate, the sides of which on are parallel and its front inclining upward y from its lower end and merging in the bottom of said trough, an outlet tube at its lower end, a closure for the same, a pivoted ring on each end of the plate and an elastic strap fastened to each ring.
3. An article of the class described comprising a flat longitudinally curved spring plate having curved edges, an attaching means at each end and a long central longitudinal trough or depression, a soft lining on the concave side of said plate, and a cup secured fluid tight on the under side of the rear end of said plate with its front inclining upwardly and merging in the bottom of said trough, said cup being covered by the plate except Where the front of the cup and the depression merge into eacn other.
In testimony that We claim the foregoing as our own, We have hereto affixed our signatures in the presence of tWo Witnesses.
