X-EAY PROTECTIVE DEVICE Adolph H. Feibel,()incinnati, Ohio, assignor to The Kelley-Koett Manufacturing 00.,

Inc,

Covington, Ky, a corporation of Ohio Application December 16, 1943, Serial No. 514,473

example to operators who are apt to be exposed to the direct rays and also to indirectly disseminated rays. Although X-ray machines today are provided with various protective linings, eta, nevertheless there is always the danger that an operator over aprolonged period ma be injured through over exposureas stated. The present invention, therefore, has to do with an apron, to be worn by the operator, which is such as to add substantially to the protection afforded the oporator against X-rayemanations.

One of the principal objects of the invention is to provide such an apron which is of unusual effectivcness in protecting the operator; and also which may be simply and readily adjusted to fit operators of difierent sizes.

Another object of the invention is to provide such an apron constructed so that when the supporting means therefor has been adjusted to fit an operator, it may be readily put on and removed in a simple way and without the necessity of varying its desired adjustable setting.

Another object of the invention is to provide such an apron in which a substantial portion of the weight is carried by the operatorships rather than his shoulders.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the descriptionand claims hereinafter set out, and the accompanying drawing.

In the drawing, in which like characters of reference designate like parts throughout the several views Fig. 1 is a somewhat diagrammatic representation of the apron of this invention illustrated in position upon an operator;

Fig. 2 is a front view of theapron showing the supporting straps, and adjustable and strap connecting means;

Fig. 3 is an enlarged fragmentary side eleva tion of the apron and its supporting straps and adjustable means;

Fig. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional view along the line 4'1 of Fig. 2; and

Fig. 5 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional View along the line 5-5 of Fig. 3, with certain parts bein shown in elevation to more clearly show certain details of construction.

In the embodiment of the invention which is illustrated in the drawing the body of the apron i3 is of such .form that when in position on the operator it extends over those portions of thetoperators body, including the torso, which will be most likelyto receive any direct or disseminate. X-ray emanations; The body of the apron consists of a sheetv of natural rubber. or syntheticmaterial (suchas Buna S synthetic rubber) .properly leaded to act adequately to intercept Xerays e-ianating directly or indirectly from'themachine.

Connected to the upper end of the apron for supporting it are 'twozstrapsof. flexible material, such as canvas'webbing or other textile strap -material strong enough to support therheavy leaded apron body each strap being designated by the numeral-l5, which. straps pass over :the'operators shoulders and cross each other at-the back in somewhat the'arrangement of a pair of suspenders. Whereeach of these straps 5 is connected to the apron, the straps, as shown, are

folded at the end which is to be connected, in the manner indicated in the enlarged section in Fig. 4. Each strap [5 is folded upon itself to provide a double thickness as indicated b 'the numeral l5 and the overturned portion'providing this double thickness is of sufiicient length so that it may be again folded upon itself as indicated at ll so that the portion l1 and thedouble portion [5 may'receive between them the-endof the apron l 0 to which each strap is to be-fastened. The straps, :asthus folded, are fastened to the apron Hi as by sewing, the fastening stitches'passing through leaded apron 10 as well as through the three layers of the strap which include the double folded portions !6 and H. As such stitching might leave small openings which would pass completely through the points of connection of the straps to the apron; a-section123 of leaded rubber, or other such effective shielding material, is cemented to the inside of the-apron so as to completely overlie allot the stitched'portions'o'f each strap connection with the apron and thus prevent passage of X-rays through the stitching openings in this strap connection zone.- Furthermore, as so connected, with the three thicknesses of strap connected to the apron, upon its inner and also its outer sides as indicated in Figs. 3 and 4. the upward pull of the straps on the supporting apron will be exerted from both the front and back sides of the apron to thus more securely and effectively support the very heavy leaded apron.

Fastened to the apron portion ill at positions adjacent or just above the hips of the wearer or operator are rivets 22 each having a protruding portion with an enlarged head 13 to receive a fastening loop shown as a slidablermetal loop membertzi having across bar 25 to provide two large openings through which the strap may be adjustably passed, said loop member 24 serving to hold the strap in properly adjusted position during use.

As shown in Figs. 3 and 5 this rivet 22 extends through aligned openings in two washers designated by the numerals 26-26, which are placed upon opposite sides of the body portion of the apron l and through a corresponding opening in the apron itself. Upon the inside or back side of the apron is a section or disc 21 of protective material, such as that in the apron body, which is cemented to the apron H] to completelyclose over the openings in which the rivet 22 is positioned and which likewise serves to hold the washer 26' and the covered end of the rivet 22 firml in place.

A corresponding portion or disc 28 is fastened to the outside or front of the apron with an opening through which the rivet passes, to hold the washer 26 in place and to assist in adequately securing this rivet 22 and holding it in place against the strains due to the weight of the apron and its use.

Each strap is slidably mounted to pass through its corresponding loop receiving member, and around one of the outer bars thereof indicated at 25 and the cross bar 25 thereof, and the member 24 has one of its outside bars 25 movably held within a connecting loop 30 formed by a double strap portion the two adjacent ends of which are indicated by the numeral 3|, and which in turn have openings therein which receive the rivet 22 with the head 23 thereof held thereagainst, whereby the rivet holds the double strap portion 3i to the apron which in turn holds the loop member 24 in place. This illustrates a simple construction for affixing the loop member 24 at the proper places on the apron to be adjacent the hips of the operator and to permit of passing the strap therethrough and doubling it back upon itself in the manner above described.

For purposes of simplicity in description a portion of the strap which.passes through and is doubled back upon itself, and which represents I the opposite end of the strap from that which. is attached at the top of the apron is indicated by the numeral 32, the main portion of the strap which'passes through the loop member zll'being indicated by the numeral as shown particularly in Fig. 3. The endof the portion 32 of the strap is looped over the center bar 33 of a buckle on slidably adjustable member 34, the looped over portions of the strap being riveted or sewed or otherwise adequately secured together at 36 to fasten this member 34 to this end portion 32 of the strap, andgthe main portion of the strap l5 referred to passing through this buckle so that by moving the buckle along the portion I 5 and moving the strap also through the loop member 24 the effective length f the strap may be adjusted as desired. The slide member or buckle 34 is provided with suitable means to permit ready movement of the buckle with respect to the portion l5 of the strap and also to aflix the buckle sufficiently to hold it in that position for a more or less extended period. As shown in the drawing this is accomplished by means of a slidable toothed crosspiece 35, which may be moved to such position that as the weight of the apron tends to pull down it will cause the toothed member to hold against the strap portion I5 and prevent slip but which will also readily release when the pull is changed so that the strap may be lengthened or shortened as desired. By means 4 of this arrangement each strap may be length ened or shortened to fit the operator, his height and weight, etc. The illustrative form of slide member or buckle for permitting ready adjusting movement of the end of each strap portion 32 with respect to the main body portions 15 and I5 of the strap is shown as constructed for permitting ready adjustment but firmly clamping and holding the two parts of the strap inany selected adjusted position, to give desired length, with, the very considerable weight of the leaded apron being suliicient to hold the clamping portions firmly in adjusted position. Because of the great weight of the leaded apron it is desirable that the adjustments may be such that it will fit the operator most satisfactorily and most comfortably, and the type of construction illustrated permits of adjustment to any desired position and firmly holding the parts 32 and l5-l5in that position with the weight of the apron assuring tight clamping or holding of the parts. Also this construction permits adjustment to any desired position to suit the body requirements.

As shown particularly in Figs. 2 and 3, the

member 3A is a rectangular looped member, such as can readily be made from a metal stamping,

bent in angular form as shown most clearly in Fig. 3. The open space within the. member 34 is provided with a cross bar 33, positioned approximately at the position of angular bend, about which the free end of the portion 32 of the strap is looped and then stitched orotherwise fastened to the portion 32 as indicated at 36, thus connecting the member 3 4 to theend of the portion 32 of the strap. The upper'end of the member 32, as shownin Fig. 2 is preferably serrated across its inside edge along the top of the opening in the member 34, these. serrations or teeth 49 serving to bite into theportion i5l5' of the strap under pull, such as that which is occasioned by the Weight of the very heavy leaded apron.

The member 35 may also be a formed metal portion having an opening stamped outof the flat portion, through which the portion tE-ltl' of the strap passes and may be adjusted with respect to the member 3 3. This cross member, the bottom of which is indicated in Fig. 2 by the dotted line H which marks the bottom of the member 35, has its upper edge preferably serrated to provide teeth, and as these teeth, in the position shown in Fig. 2, are approximately behind the teeth 40 at the top of the member 35, they are not shown in Fig. 2.

This member 35 has portions 35' on each side, which may be formed by bending the sheet metal of which the member 35 is formed so that they slidably embrace the side pieces of the member 34 to permit movement of the member 35 in either direction with respect to the member 34. The overturned portion 43 at the top of the member 35 is primarily to provide a curved portion on the side toward the strap portion I5l 5 to permit more ready movement and adjustment adjusted position being ,ingedge to bathe member 3d, around the cross 3 .barv -33, and then throughthe lower opening and .below the-lower end -.or cross piece 44 of the -member- 34. =And having been looped through the.-.member; 34, the free end is then passed throughthe lower opening of the member 34,

around the cross bar {53 and between the :cross bar. 83; and portions I5 of the strap and is then looped downwardly and the end overturned as .shown :and fastened to the strap portion 32 so that theyparts, are held together.

:thestrap which passes through the loop member -24, ,givesa construction whereby the parts will not become lost and whereby suitable fixity and strength of the various parts are .provided to v sustain-the heavy leaded apron. When it is .desiredto'eilect adjustment the operator moves .theparts 34 and 35 to bring the teeth out of holding relation and the portion l5-.l5 of the strap may then be moved freely with respect'to the members. 34 .and 35.

-S1idably mounted upon each strap, in the doubled portion extending beyond the, loop mem- -ber 24 is apart of a clasp orconnecting member,

zone of these parts 3'! having provisions such as;

a hook member which may be readily'inserted and fastened into the other part 3? of the clasp, the

free ends of the strap members which are shown in -depending position in Fig. 2, and in elevated,

.intermediate position :in Fig. 3 being held -coni .nected togetherin substantiallyhorizontal position across the back of the operator adjacent the .waistline when these two members of the clasp are connected.

-When thelength of tliestrapshas. been adjusted to suit the particular operatorthe apron can be readily put on or taken 01f over'the head of the operator asthe total length of strap avail- .able on each side and across-theoperators-back ,between the loopmembers 25 is such that the straps may slide through these loops to permit of readily loosening the straps by thus varying the-length as may be required to accomplish this.

And,,.as shown, the straps come through from acrossthe operators back through theloop-mem- .berss'lt and then out over'the back of the-user ofjthe apron thus producing a self-locking effect, .due to friction; of the strap faces against each other and the angular pull at the loop members 24.

The doubled-portions of each strap over the cross-bars..225 prevent the straps fromslipping out of theloop members 25, and also the respective claspmembers 3'5 and 3? are preferably of such over-all dimensions that they will not pass through the openings in the member 26 and thus the properly adjusted supportingzstraps maybe retained in the desired arrangement and the clasp members may be readily clasped or unclasped'and the apron readily removed without any danger of the straps pulling through the loop member 24 or getting out of adjustment.

.By this arrangement whereby the adjustable member 34 is upon the one end of the strap porition 3zand thevariable length portion :15. of-the This ar- .rangement, together with the looped portion of strap passes through such-members 64 :tabeiheld ini adjusted position therein-- .bllflrilOt @removable therefrom a loop of-strap is provided which passes around the -bars.:25'-25- and themember 34 is :of such'sizethat it cannot pass through-the openings in the" loop member 24. Therefore-the parts having once-:beenso assembledcan be freely adjusted to fit it-he size-of ithe operation-can be clasped or unclasped, to permit; of the operator readily putting theapron on .or takingit off with ample length of-strap to-facilitate this, and also with thearrangement suchq-that the member-34 1 can. be l'eftin adjusted position, or even ,if-"it should come loose-nevertheless the generalrar- 'rangement and adjustability of the parts would be retained and it would be a very simple matter for the operator to-read-just either or-botholi the members 34, as desired; to secure the: desired strap length.
