niiDUciNe im LIGHT-rnmrm'r CABINET.

i' 4Application filed lay 20,

It is Well known 'in the art that color light vibrations and heat have curative effects on the body andit is common practiccto use a cabine-t having different colored lights, 1n

these lights and the light rays have a' very beneficial effect. Thc'p'resent type of cabinets arc so designed that theentire body of the patient'is inside. Although such cabinets are successful in some cases,-it is impossible to properly treat patients having weak hearts because they cannot be 'subjected to the excessive heat necessary to give etfec tive treatment.

It is an objectV of my invention to provide a reducing and light treatment cab-inetin lwhich a person with a weak heart may be effectively treated. In actual practice I ain able to keep a Apatient having a weak heart in a cabinet of my invention for twenty-eight minutes at a. temperature of 1200 F., whereas I can keep this patient only ten minutes in the common'type of cabinet and only at a temperature of 80 F.

It is a further object of my invention to provide a cabinet of this character which is especially adapted for treating rectal diseases and other organic diseases.

It is another object ef my invention to provide a cabinet of this character which is dcsigned for thetreatincnt of foot diseases.

It is an additional object of my invention to provide a device of this character having a novel form of chair.

It is also an object of my invention to provide a deviceof this character having a novel chair which has an adjustable heat and light source. -lt is a further object of this invention to provide a treating device of the character mentioned having a novel form of foot treatcr. 1

Other Iobjects andthe particular tages of my invention will be made hereinafter. l

Referring to the three sheets of drawings in which I illustrate a preferredeinbodiment of my invention:

" Fig. 1 is a plan view of a cabinet embodying the features of my invention.

Fig. 5 is a section taken on the line 5*-5 of y Fig. 4, this view showingthe interior construction of my novel foot treater.

Fig. 6 is a plan view ofthe light chair of my invention. y

Fig. 7 is a section taken -on the line 7`7of Fig. 6, showing the adjustablelight' con-N struction of my invention.-

Fig. 8 is Aan enlarged fragmentary section takcnon the line 8--8 of Fig..,7.

As shown clearly in Figs. 1 to 3, inclusive, my invention rovides a cabinet 11 having a 'bottoni- 12, side-walls 13, a back wall 14, a front wallL15 and atop wall 16. The front wall 15 has a door 18 hinged at'19 and provided with a latch 20; In the door 18 is a window 21 through which a thermometer may be viewed, as shown in Fi s. 2 and '3.v The top wall 16 is providedwith lidsv23 which hinge at ,24 and which extend from the front wall 15 to a. hole 26. The rear parts of the lids 23 have curved. faces 27 which form a. part ofthe wall of the hole 26.V Metal ledges 30 are secured to the under face of the top 1 6, as shown clearly in Fig. 1, to support the WVit-h referenceto Fig. 2 a ring 32 made in two sectionsis laced in the hole 26 to reduce of the bottom, sides, topV and back 'of the` cabinet` 11 are corner "or, lamp supporting the size thereo according to the person using plates 37, these plates being secured in place in any suitable manner. Sockets 38 are supported by the lamp plates 37, these sockets beingadapted to receive lamps 39. These lamps 39Aare of diterent colors and it is general practice to use red and blue lights, these lights .giving the most effective curative light rays. l Switches 41v are placed on the front wall 15, -which switches may be operated to turn on various arrangements of lights inside the cabinet-11 in order to acquire desired heat and desired light rays'.

Within the cabinet 11-I place a light chair 50 of my invention which is of the construcshovvn in Figs. 6, 7 and 8 of tion as clearly With reference to these figures the drawings.

therein. Extending throng 1 the opening 60 `is a threaded stein 63 having ahead 65 and slots- 64 into which the splines 60 extend, .the

co-opcration between the slots and splines restraining the stem 63 against rotation.' A nut 66 is'threaded onto the stem (33, this nut resting on an upper face 6'( of theI bearing flange 59. By rotating the/ nut GG, the stent 63 may beadvanced upwa'rdly or` downwardly if desired. `A lamp socket 7() is secured-at the upper end of the stem 63, holding a. lamp -7 2. The lamp 72 is supplied with 'electricity through a cord 73 which extends from the socket 70.

' In the front part of the cabinet 11 there is placed a foottreater 80 of my invention which is clearly shown in Figs. 4: and 5. ,lVith reference to these figures, the foot treater Stlhas aV base member 81 having a slot 82 through winch a key 83 maybe ext-ended, this key extending through one of the openings 84 I in the bototm 12 whereby the foot treatcr is secured in suitable position. The treater 80 provides a. chamber 86 in which a diagonal lamp plate 87 is secured, as clearly shown in Fig. 5. This plate 87'- Supports sockets 88 which carry lamps 89, there being reflectors 90 secured to theplate 87 for reflecting the.

- ray-'s from the lamps 89. An' inclined door 91 which is hinged at 92 is provided with a heat and light rays ytransmitting member 93 which extends diagonally, as shown, and on winch a patient may place the feet. One of .the lamps 89 in the foot treater may be red and the other may be blue and may be used combined or separately, as required.

My device is used substantially as follows: The ring 32 is removed from the hole- 26 and .the door 18 'and the lids 23 are opened toallow the patient to enterthe' cabinet 11. The

patient, as shown'in Fig. 2, sits on thelight: chair 50 and places Vthe feet on the member 93 of the foot treater 80. The door 18a-nd the lids 23 are-closed andthe ring 32 is placed in the opening 26.- 4It is generally desirable to pack sheeting ,in the opening of the ring .to prevent an escape of heat. The cabinet subjected to highheats. As previously de# scribed, this arrangement is very adaptable for treating patients with weak hearts. The

lamps39 are turned on in various combinations 'according` to the treatment desi red. The

lamp 72 rot the light chair 51 is also illuminat edl producing heat and curative light rays.v The lamp-72 is adj ustable-in a vertical direction and may be adjusted to a. suitable. height. The chair arrangement is so designed that the heat and light rays may be. applied in such a vmanner that my device is very suitable for the treating of rectal 'disorders and male. aml female disorders. The. foot t-rcater 80 is very suitable for treating foot allnents and applies heat and curative rays to the-soles ot the. teet., which, according to authorities, have; a great number of nerve centers. Front the foregoing description it. is obvious that the'device. of my invention is very suitable 'for the use. (le:-': 1ilu\-d ln actual practice rery successful results have been obtained. Patients that. cannot .be treated iu the. common type. of cabinet have been suc# cessfully treated in the cabinet of my invention.

I claim as my invention:

1. In a ti-eating device the cmnbination of z' a' cabinet adapted to enclose the body of a patient; a seat disposed in said cabinet'. upon which said patient may sit, said seat having a central opening; athreaded stem non-rotatably mounted on'said seat beneath said opening;- an electric lightjmeans mounted on the upper end of said stemaand a disc having a threaded hole adapted to screw upon-said threaded stem to permitl manual adjustment of said electric light means on said chair to vary the distance between said light mea-ns and portions of said patients body exposed through said opening. to rays from said light means.

2. In a treating device the combination of: a cabinet adapted to enclose the. body ot a patient; a seat disposed in said cabinet upon which said patient may sit, said scat lhaving a central opening; three tubular-legs supporting said seat; a light supporting platform rigidly spacing the lower ends of said legs; a light stem base mounted uponsaid platform, there being a vertical hole-'formed in said base; a key extending from onev side of said hole; a threaded light supporting;r stem provided with a key-way along one. side thereof and disposed in said hole sot-hat. said key extends into said ke'yfway; a disc having a threaded aperture formed centrally therein, which screws upon Vsaid 4stem and which rests upon the up er end of said base;
