STRIP, F STICKING .PLASTEB Application led October 22, 1928, Serial-No.
This inventionrelates to a stri of sticking g plaster adapted to be laced or securing dressings in position. According to the invention a bar with hook-shaped folded over iiaps is arranged on one longitudinal edge of the plaster strip designed to form' one element of a means for lacing two strips together. y v
An embodiment of the invention is illus- 10 trated, byj way of example, in the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 shows in 'top plan view two strips of sticking plaster laced together. Fig. 2 is a cross section showing these two stripsof sticking plaster laced togetherand used lfor holding a dressing of a wound.
Fig. 3 shows in cross section on larger scale the .edge portion of the strip of sticking plaster. y
On one longitudinal edge of astrip aor a1 of sticking plaster a bar b of metal, celluloid or other material is arranged. The' bar b has a continuous row of ,flaps ffolded 'over to form hooks. These flaps f may -be produced by punching so that between the iiaps 7" intervals d are formed. v
The bar b is mounted on the ed e of the strip of sticking plastenfpreferab y before the hooks f are formed,the bar being placedon the edge of the strip of sticking plaster whereupon this edge-isfolded over the bar which is then securely-.held when the two parts of the folded'ed'geare stuck together. The hooks formed subsequently jby punching are therefore covered-with sticking plaster as' shown in Fi W'hen the stiringplaster'h'as tobe used? two stri s a and a1 are laced the one at the 'A side of t e other, spice at a short distance,`
thel edge portion bof the strips in which the bar is mounted being' not stuck onto the surface on'which the dressing has to bemade. ThTegxooks of the two strips a'ce one another'.
e strips not stuck on-are lifted andlaid over in outward direction so that the woundto be is accessible.'1l1e wound is then covered with dressing material g and the portions ofthe strips are laid toeoyer thedreling'lnd they opposite edge portions. ofthe two 314,214, and in Germany December 20, 1927.
connected by lacing by means of a string h or the like similar to a bodice. L i
The advantage of the invention over other suture appliances'in which also two strips 0f-A plaster, one strip on each side of the wound, are -used and the two strips to be pulled t0- gether by lacing, consists in that the lacin hooks are stamped out directly from the sti ening bar and bent up, so that it is not necessary toV sew them on, and that the facing edges of thc two plaster strips are pulled together ina straight line without any formation offolds, further in that the hooks are covered' with plaster as the metal or Celluloid strips from which they are stamped have been previously embedded in the edges of the plaster strips.A
I claim-z I A A stri o'f-sticlng plaster having a bar of suitab e material such as metal, Celluloid placedlbetween the folded over longitudinal edge of said strip, iiapspunched out of thislon 'tudinal edge and bent upward to form hoo s covered on both sides with sticking plaster said flaps enabling the lacing together of the longitudinal ends of two simi-` a" strips of sticking plaster placed side by s1 e. f A
