ADOLPH A. POEHNER, OF SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, ASSIGNOR TO A. S. POEHNER, OF SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented June 19, 1917.
Application filed July 22, 1914. Serial No. 852,391.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ADoLPH A. POEHNER, a citizen of the United States, residing at San Francisco, in the county of San Francisco, State of California, have invented a new and useful Leg-Holder, of which the following is a specification in such full and clear terms as will enable those skilled in the art to construct and use the same.
This invention relates to a surgical appliance and its object is to hold the legs of persons being operated upon at a fixed distance apart.
An embodiment of the invention is shown in the drawing in which the same reference numeral is applied to the same portion throughout, but I am aware that there are many modifications thereof.
Figure 1 is a side elevation of the complete device, and
Fig. 2 is a view at right angles to Fig. 1.
The device has two curved stirrups l and 2, each of which is provided with hooks 3 and 4:. The stirrup 1 is connected with a tubular member 5, which member has an enlarged boss at 6, while the stirrup 2 is connected with a rod 7 which slides within the tubular member 5, a set screw 8 being used to secure the two members in a given position.
When a person is to be operated upon the stirrups are placed against the legs and the device is adjusted to the desired distance, whereupon rubber bands 9 and 10 may be placed on the hooks 3 and 4 and around th leg of the patient.
Having thus described my invention what- I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is as follows, modifications within the scope of the claim being expressly reserved:
In a leg holder, a tubular member having a stirrup at one end thereof, a rod slidable within said tubular member and having a stirrup at one end, a set screw to securethe rod and tubular member in a given position, a pair of hooks carried by each stirrup, and resilient means carried by the stirrups to secure a persons legs thereto.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 14th day of July, A. D. 1914, in the presence of the two subscribing witnesses.
