INVENTOR 1 I I By Attorneys,

' Patented Aug. 23,1927.



Application flled flo vember 28,1925. Serial No. 72,065; i

This invention relates to a combined hair drier and therapeutic lamp of the type comprising an electric motor driving a fan or blower, an electric heating unit for heating 5 the air delivered by the fan, and a therap'eutio lamp, and aims to provide certain improvements therein.

Hitherto, devices of this general class have been mountedupon rollered pedestals, which, because of the height of the motor mounting and the weight of the motor, heater, etc., re- .quired an exceptionallyhea'vy base or a base with a great spread of legs to give it stability.

According to the present invention I prefer to mount the motorand fan upon the base of a: rollered cabinet and provide a conduit leading from the fan to the exterior of the cabinetthrough the top thereof, which conduit may have an electric heating unittherein and be further adapted. to support at its free end a therapeutic lamp unit. This arrangement of parts will give great stability to the aggregate and facilitate the movements of the device from place to place withi out danger of upsetting the same. The cabinet may also be given an ornamental form to greatly enhance the appearance of the de- VlCG; v r s The invention further consists in-the provision of a therapeutic lamp which may be readily adjusted to various angular positions with respect to -the horizontal, and which, if desired, may be mounted for quick detachable'connection on the free end of the 'conduit. ,The invention also includes other features of novelt whichwill be hereinafter more fully descri -ed.

In the accompanying drawings. I have shown a preferred embodiment of my in- 40 ventionwherein,

I Figure 1-is a perspective view with parts thereof broken away. Fig. 2 is a lon 'tudinal-section partly in elevation of the t erapeutic lampunit.

4.5 Fi 3 is a transverse section taken along the line 3 3 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a diagrammatical representation of the wiring connections of my device;

Referring to the drawings, let A indicate a rollered cabinet, uponthe base of which is mounted an electric motor B which drives a fan or blower C encased within a housing- D provided with an air discharge nozzle E. Openings a for the intake of air for thefan I are shownin the cabinet wall facing the fan.

'ing handle P and clamping nuts Q for holdgusted position. The therapeutic lamp unit Connected with said fan C and leading from the nozzle E throughthe top of'the cabinet is a conduit F, adapted to deliver the air from the fan overa heating unit or therapeutlc lamp, as desired, or both. The free end of the conduit F is herein shown as term natmg. at the top of the cabinet, but it w1l l be understood that if desired this conduit may be extended either in an upright d rection or at anangle,'and may be pro-. vided with a heating unit or with a therapeutic lamp at its free end. It is preferable, however, when employing a. heating unit or a therapeutlc lamp, or both, to have said. elements mounted upontubular members adapted to form continuations or extensions of'the conduit F. i

Fig. 1, I have shown a heating unit G wh1ch may be of any approved construction, mounted wlthin a rigid tubular member H connected to thefree end of the conduit F.

ber K and surrounding the lamp in spaced relation thereto is areflector N open at its rear to permit air delivered by the fan to pass directly over the surface of the lamp M.

or the purpose of manually directing the current of air which passes over the'lamp M and also the reflected rays from said lamp, a second reflector. O is provided, herein shown as pivotally mounted upon trunnions carried by the reflector N, thereflector .0 being thereby adapted for manual adjustment about a horizontal axis. For adjusting the reflectorjO,there is provided an operating the reflector O in any adjusted position.

'- Obviously, if desired, instead of-the clamp ing nuts Q, spring washers or other means maybe employed for providing a frictional engagement for holding the reflectors in adis preferably adapted for quick detachable connection with the free end of the member H; any; suitable means being employed to,

accomphsh this result.

For facilitating the movement of the cabinet from place to place, handle R or any other equivalent means may be provided.

The electrical connections'of the device are preferably so arranged that it will be impossible to employ the heating element G without the motor B, but such that any other combination of the motor, the lamp, the motor and lamp, or the motor heating unit and lamp may be used as desired. The wiring connection-s whereby any of the foregoing combinations may be realized is diagrammatically shown in Fig. 4. Theswitches for controlling the Various elements of the deviceand the plug for obtaining current from the line are shown as disposed at various points about the cabinet, each at a definite location to avoid mistake in switching in any desired element.

While I haye shown and described a preferred embodiment of my invention, it will be understood that various details herein shown and described may be varied without departing from the spirit of my invention.

What I claim is:

1. In a device of the character described, a therapeutic lamp unit comprising a tubular member, a lamp socket mounted in said member, a reflector open at its rear carried by said member, and a second reflector carried by and movable with respect to the first reflector. I

2. In a device of the character described, a therapeutic lamp unit comprising a tubular member, a lamp socket mounted in said member, a reflector open at its rear carried by said member, and a second reflector pivotally mounted upon and manually adjustable on the first reflector.

\ In witness whereof, I have hereunto signed my name.
