TATUM COMPANY, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., A CORPORATION OF NEW JERSEY.

HOT-WATER on ICE BAG.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented April 27, 1909.

To all whom it may concern:

Be i known that I, CHRISTIAN WILLIAM MEINECKE, a citizen of the United States, residing in Jersey City, in the county of Hudson, State of New Jersey, have'invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hot- Water or Ice Bags, of which the following is a'spccification.

'- part to be treated.

The object of my invention is to provide a small and compact bag adapted for either we or water, of pleasing design and particularly suited for treatment of such troubles as headache, earache, neuralgia, toothache and others involving the head and face.

A further object of my invention is to provide such a bag with means of filling and emptying so placed as not to press uncomfortably into the tissue nor indeed to touch the tissue at all, such filling means generally being placed upon the edge of the bag as an appen age more or less In the way and in any case necessarily hav ng a temperature other than that of the bag proper and therefore being very disagreeable.

A stlll further object of my invention is to provide a means by which the bag may be eld agalnst the part-being treated with any desired amount of pressure and without danger of slipping in case of any movement of the patient.

The -exact character of my invention will be best understood by referring to the accompanylng drawings in WhlCl1' F1gure 1 is a perspective showing'the a phcatlon of my improved device'to the si e of the head as in case of headache, earache,

or disturbances in the mastoid region; Fig.

2 shows a plan view of my improved bag with its cooperating bandage attachment;

and Fig. 3 an elevation of the device asshown in Fig. 2.

The bag proper consists of two relatively small segments, A, of equal area, superposed, and having their edges integrally united or otherwise as desired. In the center of one of these segments or sides so formed is a suit' able cap and collar B with an opening sulficiently large to permit the insertion of ieces of ice. The bag may be composed of exible rubber or of any other watertight material and has a shape which may be broadly designated as kidney-shaped or, otherwise, as having one edge ap roximately straight or slightly curved whi e the other side has two depending lobes. The reentrant portion of the bag lying between the two lobes is one of its advantageous features, in that the bag may be placed, as shown in Fig. 1, so as to act upon the aural Iregion without covering the ear itself, or

may be laid upon the head with the lobes covering the eyes leaving the nose uncovered, and so for a number of positions.

' To hold the bag in place u on any part being treated I employ a ban age C, having a slot D, preferably reinforced, cut into its central portion and of such size as to slip over the cap and collar B, of the bag'proper. This bandage may have any desired'width, but should preferably be just broad enough to extend across the narrowest portion of the bag, that is, from a to b, Fig. 2. To fasten the bandage the ends may be tied, .or they may be overlapped and pinned together as may be most desirable.

The use of the bandage for fastening the bag as just described has many advantages. In. the first place no eyelets or other attachments let into or affixed to the bag proper are required; such eyelets or fixtures concentrate, of course, the strain of the tying means in certain particular spots or lines so that the bag 'is liable to be ruptured or strained, particularly when its material becomes a little old'and deteriorated. To construct such eyelet or other holding means into the bag is, also, troublesome and costly. contrasted with a cord of any kind, the

' bandage has an additional advantage inthat it gives a large surface of frictional contact with that'portion of the per son over which It is drawn, an therefore need Iiot'be drawn so ti htly, while yet'holding the bag very secure y. There are also occasions when, In

addition to the element of heat or cold in treatment an element of pressure is very desirable; with a cord'attached in any known Way to the bag'it is impossible to produce anything like an evenly distributed pressure over the wholearea of the ba ,but rather the pressure is along one or more 'nes only of the ture along such lines or at bag through the points of attachmentthereto While at the same time the tendency to rupthe attaching points becomes very great.

VVi th my improved bandage, which as above noted should the whole width of t e bag, the bag may be pressed very strongly against the part treated and this pressure is practically uniform over the whole surface of the bag; owing also to the this Width of the bandage the pressure upon the tissue itself about which the bandage is wrapped for holding, will be uniformly distributed and over a considerable area so that there will be none of the cutting or constriction which obtains when a cord is' .used.

The flanged cap and collar 1. A water or ice bag having one edge of its longer dimension rentrant and uniting preferably cover nearlyat each end with an opposite edge to form end lobes, thereby adapting said bag for application with lobes embracing but not covering selected parts such as the nose and ear, and provided with a rigid filling cap and collar located entirely on one flat side of the bag, said cap and collar being adapted to be engaged by fastening means for securing the bag in position on the wearer. I v

2. A water or ice bag having one edge of its longer dimension rentrant and uniting at each end With-an opposite edge to form end lobes, thereby adapting s aid bag for .application with lobes embracing but not covering selected parts such as the nose and ear, and providedwith a rigid filling cap and col lar located entirely on one flat side of the bag, in combination with a slotted bandage of which the slot is adapted to slip over and engage with said cap and collar whereby the bag may be retained in place.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

CHRISTIAN WILLIAM. MEINECKE.
