1 Claim. 1

My invention relates to electric hoods, and more particularly to a hood to be placed over the human head, and which is electrically heated, and used for the purpose of relieving headache, colds, and other ailments in the head.

In order to explain my invention, I have i1- lustrated the same on the accompanying sheet of drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a face View, showing electrically heated hood on the human head; and

Figure 2 is a side elevation of the same.

The invention as here illustrated comprises a hood structure of soft, suitable fabric, as 3, with resistance wires, as 4, woven in the fabric in the manner indicated in the light broken lines, and with the terminals, or connecting means, as 5 and 6, at opposite sides, for connecting with a source of electricity.

It is intended that the hood as here illustrated can be connected in circuit, or in series with an electric blanket or socks, similarly heated, whereby the heat can be applied to the head and feet, or to the head and body by means of the blanket, although I am not claiming other than an electrically heated hood of the character shown.

What I claim is:

A hood for the human head, adapted to t over the top, back and sides of the human head, and having woven therein resistance wires for heating the hood, said wires having two terminal connecting means at opposite sides thereof, whereby to be connected in series with another electrically heated garment from one of said terminal connecting means, and to a source of electric energy by the other connecting means.
