Application filed November 26, 1924. Serial No. 752,403.

To all whom it may concem.

Be it known that I, BERNHARD Sonm'rz- LER, a citizen of the United States, and/a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved WVater Bag, of which the following 1s a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention ielates to water bags and more particularly to a. ba for holding hot or cold water, which is a vapted to be positioned over the foot or both feet or over the hands of a user so as to give the desired temperature.

A further object is to provide a bag of this character which is in the nature of a receptacle for the foot or other portion of the body, and which can be slipped over the portion of the body desired and will retain itself in position thereon.

With these and other objects in View, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations and arrangements of parts which will be more fully hereinafter described and point-ed out in the claim.

In the accompanying drawings-- Figure 1 is a perspective view illustrating my bag in position on the foot of the user;

Figure 2 is a view in longitudinal section on the line 22 of Figure 1;

Figure 3 is a fragmentary view in trans verse section;

Figure 4 is a view in section on the line 4-4 of Figure Figure 5 is a plan view of the blank from which the bag is made;

Figures 6 and 7 are views showing the lrcnanner of folding the blank to form the l hc broad idea of my invention is to provide a flexible bag 1, the inner wall 2 of which forms apocket to receive a foot 3, or other portion of the body, therein and enclose the foot so as to subject the same to the temperature of the water, indicated at 4, within the bag.

In constructing this bag, I employ a blank such as indicated in Figure 5, this blank constituting a, strip of waterproof flexible material having one end B appreciably narrower than the main portion of the strip and preferably having tapering edges 5 which extend from an abrupt shoulder 6 constituting an integral portion of the wider end of thestrip i The extremities of the stripare provided with slits 6, and the wider portion of the strip is folded on two lines 7 and 8, indicated'by dotted lines in Fi is first folded on the line and then bent ,back and folded on the line 8 so that the parts will then appear in the position indicated in Figure 6. The exposed side portions 9, 9 are then foldedover onto the strip and the lower extremity of the end of the strip is folded on these portions 9 and secured thereto by cement or other waterproof adhesive. 7 i

The portion of the bag indicated by the fold line 8 receives thereunder a rod 10, and this portion containing the rod is clamped within a slotted tubular member 11. A cyliudrical inlet tube 12 is soldered or otherwise fixed to the member 11 and is internally screw-threaded, as shown at 13, to receive a threaded plug 14 functioning as a closure for the bag.

The upper edges of the bag formed by folding the blank as above described are secured to ether and covered by tape 15 cemented tiereto, and the portions of the strip between the slits 6" are secured by cement or other adhesive around the entrance tube or sleeve 12, as indicated at 16. 85

so as to render the structure watertight.

By this folding of the bag, an innerpocket 2 is formed with a water chamber entirely around the same so that when'the bag is filled with .water the temperature thereof can be communicated to the foot, when the latter is in the pocket, as shown in Figure 2. v

W hiie I have illustrated the bag as containing a single foot, it is obvious that it 95 may be made of a size to receive both feet or both hands or other portion of the body. While I reter to the device as a. bag it is more essentially a covering device which is slipped over the portion of the body desired and subjectsthe same to the temperature of the fluid therein. Various slight changes and alterations might be made in the general form of the parts described without de artmg from my invention, and hence I do not limit myself to the precise details set forth butoonsider I myself at liberty to make re 5. The bag
