F. KAHL THERAPEUTIC IMPLEMENT Dec. 11, 1928.

Filed July 20, 1927 /n ventor:

Patented Dec. 11, 1928.

, UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

FRANZ KAHL, OF BERLIN, GERMANY, ASSIGNOR OF SIX-TENTHS T WILLI LANDAU, OF BERLIN, GERMANY.

THERAPEUTIC IMPLEMENT.

Application filed My invention relates to the treatment ofmucous membranes of the nose, the purpose being to prevent and cure catarrhs, tumors, and the like. I

In the drawings aflixed to this specification and forming part thereof several forms of a device embodying my invention are 1llustrated diagrammatically by way of ex ample.

In the drawings Fig. 1 is an elevation illustrating a device for treating the mucous membranes of the nose,

Fig. 2 illustrates a similar device in which, however, the lamps used as heating and irradiating resistances are mounted on flexible spring supports. I

Fig. 3 is a device serving thesame purpose and which is held in position by a clamping action exerted on the portion of the nose separating the nostrils.

Fig. 4 shows a similar device adapted to be mounted on the bridge of the nose.

Referring first to Fig. 1, 1,1 are two elec tric low voltage filament lamps, the bulbs of which may be made of blue glass and may be surrounded by gridlike apertured protective caps 2 of heat-insulating material. he lamps 1, 1 are mounted in sockets 3, which are fixed to links 1 pivotally connected at 8 with intermediate links turningI about a common pivot 9 at the end of t e hollow handle 6. The current supply leads 7 extend through this handle and their free ends are connected to a pocket'battery 40.

If the lamp bulbs consist of blue glass which is know to allow the passage of ultraviolet rays to a greater extent than ordi nary glass, the mucous membranes of the nose, besides being exposed to the action of heat, will also be irradiated with the ultraviolet rays emitted by the lamp filament. Experience has shown that the application of heat during ten to twenty minutes, more especially if combined with the action of ultraviolet rays, exerts a favorable influence upon the inflamed arts and more especially on the mucous mem ranes.

In the modification ilustrated in Fig. 2, the lamps 10 are mounted in sockets 11 secured to the outer ends of a weak coil spring 12 held in a sleeve 13 which is mounted on a small handle 41 and through which extend the current conductors 14. If the lamps and sockets are forced into the position shown July 20, 1927, Serial No. 207,205, and in Germany November 24, 1926.

in dash lines by bending the coil spring 12, and the lamps are then inserted in the nostrils, the device will be held in position by the elastic pressure exerted by the spring and lamps on the outer walls of the nostrils.

The device shown in Fig. 3 consists of lamps 15 mounted in sockets 16, each of which is secured to one arm of a. doublearmed lever 18, the levers being hinged together at 19 and their outer arms being acted upon by a pressure spring 20. If this device, which is here represented in exaggerated size, is placed in position, the lamps 15 being inserted in the nostrils, the upper portions of the sockets Will be forced by the pressure spring 20 against the part of the nose intermediate the nostrils, which will thus be clamped between the sockets, thereby holding the device in position.

In the modification shown in Fig. 4 the sockets 23 provided with leading-in conductors 25 and carrying lamps 26 are mounted on pins 23 for rotation about the ends of a strap 21 carrying short pieces 22 of rubber tubing. In the practical operation of this device the two lamps 26 are turned into a position at right angles to the strap 21 and are then inserted into the nostrils, whereupon the strap 21 is turned into the position in which the rubber envelopes 22 are applied against the bridge of the nose, thereby holding the lamps in position in the nostrils.

I wish it to be understood that I do not desire to be limited to the exact details of construction shown and described for obvious modification will occur to a person skilled in the art.

I claim 1. A nasal treatment implement comprising a handle, two sockets pivoted to said handle in juxtaposition, a low voltage heating resistance applicator in each socket and means for connecting said sockets to a source of current.

2. A nasal treatment implement comprisin g a handle, two arms linked to said handle, two sockets mounted on said arms, a low voltage heating resistance applicator in each socket and means for connecting said sockets to a source of current.

3. A nasal treatment implement comprising a handle, two sockets secured to said handle in juxtaposition, a low voltage heating resistance applicator in each socket and means for connecting said sockets to a source of current.

4;. A nasal treatmentdevice comprising a handle, a support connected thereto at one end and adjustable relative to the handle, and a resistance applicator for applying heat to the parts ail'ected connected to the end of said support and adjustable relative to both the handle and support.

A nasal treatment device comprising a, handle, a. pair of arms having a common adjustable connection to the handle, and an applicator unit adjustably connected to each of said arms.

6. A nasal treatment device comprising a handle, a pair of resistance applicators adjustably connected with the handle so as to be adjustable relative to the handle, said applicators being also adjustable relative to each other, and means for connecting said applicators to a source of current.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.

FRANZ KAHL.
