EDYTH LACY, on NEW YORK, N. Y.
SANITARY PATENT 0 FFICE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 28, 1922.
Application filed August 24, 1918. Serial No. 251,220.
To all whom it may concern:
e it known that I, EDYTH LACY, a subject of the King of Great Britain, residing at No. 200 West 109th Street, New York city, State of New York, have invented an Improvement in Sanitary Protectors, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a sanitary protector suitable for use by female persons in urinating, and the principal object of my invention is to provide a cheap device of this class which is used but once, being especially suitable as a sanitary device lic toilet rooms.
The device is made of structible material, which can be readily use.
In order that my invention may be more clearl understood, attention is hereby directe to the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification and showing one form of my invention. In the drawa cheap readily dedisposed of after its %'ig. 1 is a perspective view of said form of my invention;
Fig. 2 is an end view of the same;
Fig. 3 is a side view thereof;
Fig. 4 is a longitudinal section thereof on line 4-4 of Fig. 3.
The device shown consists of a conduit comprising a tapering inlet portion 1 and an outlet portion 2 of less taper than said inlet portion, the device being generally of a funnel shape. The outer end of the inlet portion 1 is shaped so as to enclose the abia or female body well covering the urethra, the outer edge of the said inlet portion being shaped to fitclosely against the female body around the mouth of said wall. To this end the outer end of the inlet portion 1 is made oval in cross-section and the outer edge thereof is shaped to the proper curvature and provided with a lip 3 adapted to extend under the mouth of the vagina and fit against the body at this point. As shown, both the inlet portion 1 and the outlet portion 2 are of oval cross section. To avoid a sharp edge where the device bears against the human body, the outer edge of the portion 1 is desirably-beaded as shown at 4:.
The device, as already stated, is made of a cheap readily destructible material, such as paper, and a number of them may be nested comparatively compactly in each other so for use in pubsuch as stifi" paper,
that they may be supplied in public toilet rooms and elsewhere from the well known coin controlled apparatus at a nominal cost. In use, the device is held by the hand in engagement with the body with the entire beaded edge 4 engaging the body around the mouth of the well covering the urethra, the urine being led off through the outlet portion 2 to the closet or other suitable place.
It is accordingly unnecessary for the user to sit upon the closet seat; and the urine is led ofl' without danger of soiling the clothes of the user or the closet. After the device has been used once it may be discarded and burned or otherwise destroyed.
While I have described one form of my invention in detail, numerous modifications may be made without departing from the spirit of my invention.
What I claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent is as follows:
1. A nestable sanitary protector for females comprising a tapering conduit having its inlet end shaped to fit closely against the female body well covering the urethra, said conduit being formed of a readily combustible fibrous sheet material adapted for a single use.
2. nestable sanitary protector for females comprising a tapering paper conduit having its inlet end shaped to fit closely against the female body well covering the urethra.
3. A nestable sanitary protector for females comprising a tapering conduit having an inlet portion provided with a smooth rounded edge shaped to fit closely against the female body well covering the urethra, said conduit being formed of paper.
4. A nestable sanitary protector for females comprising a tapering paper conduit of oval cross section having its inlet end shaped to fit closely against the female body well covering the urethra.
5. A nestable sanitary protector for females comprising a tapering paper conduit of oval cross section having its inlet end shaped to fit closely against the female body well covering the urethra, said conduit having its inlet portion of greater taper than its outlet portion.
6. A nestable sanitary protector for females comprising a tapering paper conduit of oval cross section having a smooth beaded inlet end shaped to fit closely againstthe female'body well covering the urethra, said conduit having its inlet portion of greater ta er than its outlet portion.
2. A nestable sanitary rotector for females comprising a taperm conduit having an inlet portion oval in cross-section formed of a sheet of paper, and having a smooth beaded edge shaped to fit closely against the female body well covering the urethra, and having also an outlet portion of less taper than said inlet portion, formed of a sheet of paper and connected to said inlet portion.
8. A nestable sanitary protector for fe- 15 males comprising a tapering conduit of oval cross-section, formed of sheet paper and shaped to fit closely a ainst the female body well covering the uret ra.
9. A nestable sanitary protector for females comprising an elongated tapering conduit of oval cross section, .formed of light fibrous material and having its large end shaped to fitzclosely against the femalebody well coverin the urethra, whereby the same may be rea 11y and economically dis ensed in publictoilets and used by women or the purpose and in the manner'set forth.
In testimony whereof, I have signed my name to this specification.
