Patented May 19, 1953 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE STOMA RECEIVER I iMurle Perry, Minneapolis, Minn. Application July 7, 1950;'Se'rial No. 172,520 .10 Claims. (01. 128-9283) 'It is one of the objects of this invention to provide a novel and improved stoma receiver which can be applied to the body to fit over a stoma and receive the discharge therefrom and which may be held on the body as by a body encircling belt and which can be adjusted relative to the belt so as to properly fit the contour of the body without applying undue pressure at any one Another object of the invention is to provide a stoma receiver including a container in the'form of a flexible bag, a retaining ring which may be em loyed for clamping the mouth of the container against the body; and means for holding the ring against the body, the ring being capable of being tilted outwardly from the body to permit removal of the container through the opening in the ring. v r

A further object is to provide a novel and simple guard which may be removably applied to the retaining ring referred to in the last paragraph above so as to protect the mouth of the flexible container from collapse thereof when clothing is being worn and which can be readily removed so as to permit the stoma receiver to be used without the guard as at night. when outer I clothing is not being worn. 1

Yet another object is to provide a belt keeper which can benadjustably mounted at different vertical heights on the retainer last above referred to, the keeper being employed to attach to a body encircling belt, an adjustment of the keeper in a vertical direction being desirable to apply pressure from the beltfagainst theretaining ring in accordance with the peculiarities of the contour of the body of the person wearing the stoma receiver. l

Still another object is to provide a novel and improved flexible means for attaching a stoma receiver to the bodydirectly. 1

These and other objects and advantages of, the invention will more fully appear from the following description made in connection with the accompanying drawings, wherein like reference characters refer to the same or similar parts throughout the several views, and in which Fig. 1- is an exploded view showing difierent parts of a stoma receiver embodying the present invention;

Fig. 8 is a view similar to Fig. 7 but showing the use of a double belt for attachment of the stoma receiver to the body; I v

Fig. 9 is a view generally similar to Fig. '7 but showing the dome-like container illustrated in Fig. 5 applied .for use when the bag-like container shown in Figs. 6, 7 and 8 has been removed; and

Fig; 10" is a view showing the stoma receiver applied to the body assembled as shown in Fig. 3

I but with a belt member of special construction running through the keeper attached to the guard of the device, the belt member being held in place 'by a double waist-encircling belt. I

The stoma receiver includes a container holding ring I I having a rather large central opening,

the walls of which taper from the inner or body side of the ring toward the outer side of the ring, 1. e., the opening in the ring is of slightly less diameter at its outer side than at its inner side. A flexible bag-like container I2 is also provided and this bag has a channel-shaped ring-like mouth [20. within which the ring I I is received,

the mouth 12a being vertically disposed. The

bag-like container l2 will preferably be made-of some flexible resilient material such as rubber or partially resilient plastic, and the channel-shaped mouth He will be capable of being stretched to snap over the ring I I. The mouth end of the bag is somewhat narrower than the body portion 12b of the bag and the body portion is preferably provided with vertical fiuting so as to be readily expansible for the purpose of carrying a large quantity of material. Below the body 12b the bag again narrows to form an outlet neck I20 which is open at its lower end. To close the lower end of the outlet neck 120 this neck is carried in a bight over a hollow, rather heavy rubber tube 13 and a metal channel I4 is then slipped over the said bight so that the tube It and bight are held within the channel.

A retaining ring l5 formed of rigid material is employed as a backing ring outwardly of the container holding ring II to press the ring H and the bag mouth I2a toward the body of the wearer. The retaining ring I 5 has a, rather large opening therethrough and when the retaining ring is tilted outwardly at its upper portions from the container holding ring H as shown in the exploded view Fig. 1, it is possible by raising ing the holding ring II and the bag-like container [2 to draw the body [2b of the bag-like container through the remaining ring l5, even though the bag is filled, for the purpose of emptying and cleaning the bag'container I 2. This permits the bag-like container l2 to be removed from the body without complete removal of the retaining ring I5 as will be more fully explained hereafter. The retaining ring [5 has an outer circumferential, outwardly extending grooved flange [5a for a purpose presently to appear. Also, this ring lS carries on its outer face at its sides at different levels 'a plurality of outwardl projecting nob's It for the purpose of permitting the attachment 'of a belt or belts to' this retaining ring 15.

There is also provided a guard 17, this guard including a body portion Ila formed preferably of metal or rigid material and having inturned edges which are rolled to receive a wire I8. This wire includes lower inwardly extending spring hook ends Ilia and an upper, offset, arcuate,inwardly extending hook portion [85. The guard i l is ad'apted to be releasably attached to the retaining ring 15 by first engaging the upper arcuate hook portion |8b within the upper portion of the groove of the grooved flange 15a of the retaining ring and therafte'r springing the lower hook ends lBa inwardly and catching the untrained portions of these hook ends; also, in portions of the groove of the flange l5a' of the ring I5. When so attached to the ring 15, as for example as shown in Figs. 2, 3, 6 and 10, the body Ila of the guard is outwardly s aced from the upper mouth portion of the bag-like container i2 and it prevents collapse of the mouth portion of the bag container so that there will be freedom for the passage of material through the neck of the bag-like container into the body portion 12b thereof at all times from the stoma. At times it is desirable to use the stoma receiver without the guard I1 and, of course, the guard can be very quickly and easily removed from the retaining ring 15 by disengagement of the hooks 18a and I811 from the grooved flange 15a of the ring l5. U V

For use in slidably attaching a belt to the guard H thereis provided a circular belt keeper 19, this belt keeper having opposed inturned tabs through which a belt may be slid. This keeper carries a central inwardly projecting stud 2B in the form of a half-snap fastener and this stud projects through a central opening in the belt keeper and is adapted to be received many one of a number of vertically spaced openings 2| formed in the body Ha of the guard 11. To hold the stud 20 in place within the selected opening 2!, there is provided a cooperating female half-snap fastener 22 which will be placed 1 l9 relative to the guard H, thereby permitting a belt running through the keeper to be disposed at any desired angle relative to the guard and at the most comfortable angle to position the stoma receiver properly to fit the contour of the body of the wearer.

the head 24.

As the stoma receiver is shown in Figs. 1 and 2, and as it applied to the body as shown in Fig. 6, the stoma receiver includes an apertured head 24' having an outer tapered flange 24a to snugly and tightly but removably fit within the tapered opening of the container holding ring I i. The inner surface of the apertured head 24 is preferably somewhat dome shaped and this head is equipped with an outwardly projecting grooved flange 24b. Also, as the device issho'wn in Figs. 1 and 2, and as it will be employed as shown in Fig. 6', the device includes a flexible disc 25 preferably made of rubber or flexible plastic which may be cemented directly to the body of the wearer, the cement, of course, being applied to the inner side of the disc 25. This disc 25 has an aperture 251; through which the stoma will be extended. Vulcanized to the outer side of the disc 25 is a flexible tube 26 preferably made of rubber or similar material and this tube is extended inwardly through the aperture of It is provided preferably with a bead at its outer end and the beaded outer end of the said tube is carried over the grooved flange 24b of the head 24 and snapped in place within the groove thereof. The disc 25 is thus attached to the head. 24 by the tube 26 and as this tube is flexible, the head 24 may have limited movement relative to the disc 25 and may be somewhat angularly disposed in respect to the general plane of the disc 25. It will also be noted that the tube 25 is vulcanized to the disc 25 outwardly from the opening 25a in the disc and, hence, the movement of the tube 26 is possible without contacting the stoma which projects through the opening 25a and tilting action of the head '24 may take place without contactthe stoma. The disc 25, being formed of flexible material, may conform closely to irregularities in the body of the wearer and will yield with movements of the body.

In place of the apertured head 24, disc 25 and tube 26, an apertured head 2'1 as shown in Fig. 3 and as employed as the device is shown as worn on the body in Figs. 7,8, 9 and 10, may be used. This head 21 is provided with a flange 21a adjacent its circumferential edge at its inner side and the circumferential edge of the head 21 is tapered to fit the container holding ring H. The aperture in thelie'ad 21 may be made of different sizes to fit requirements of the particular patient for the stoma to properly be received through this aperture. When the device is used as shown assembled in Fig. 3, an aper tured pad 28 isnorx'nally employed between the body and theh'ead 21, this pad being made of cellulose material and being replaceable from time to time at but slight expense.

The stoma receiver may be heldonto the body in different manners by diiferent types of belts. In Fig. 6 the stoma receiver is held in place by an adjustable body encircling belt 29 which is slidably received through the keeper Hi. In Fig. '7 an adjustable body encircling belt 30 is employed for holding the stoma receiver onto the body, this belt being equipped at its ends with eye-like fasteners 3| which may be engaged respectively with opposing nobs it carried by the retaining ring l5 at desired levels. By engaging these eyes 3| with nobs I6 at higher or lower levels, the pressure applied by the belt against the retaining ring I5 holding the device against the body may be varied to suit the peculiarities of the contour of the particular person wearing the stoma receiver. In Fig. 8 there is shown a double belt 32 having at each end two sets of tabs to which non-engaging eyes 33. are secured.

With this double belt, the pressure exerted by the belt may be distributed onto the retaining ring l5 at four points rather than two points, and by attaching the eyes 33 to the proper nobs l6 at the right levels the belt may be adjusted to E the peculiarities of the body of the wearer.

In Fig. 10 the belt 32 carrying the nob-engaging eyes 33 is employed along with a belt section 34 having at its end'portions nobs 35 with which the eyes 33 may be engaged, this belt section 34 havin a central strap-like portion 3411 which may be slidably received within the keeper IQ of the stoma receiver.

There is also provided with the stoma receiver a domed container 36 shown in Fig. 5 and in Fig. 9 which may be substituted for the bag-like receiver l2 on occasion. This dome-like receiver 36 will preferably be made of clear plastic and it is equipped with an outer flange against which the retaining ring I5 may bear, the dome portion projecting outwardly through the opening in this ring when this particular container 36 is being worn. This dome container may be used temporarily after the bag-like container I2 has been removed and while it is being emptied and cleaned prior to replacement. Also, at certain times it may be desirable to employ the dome container 36 in place of the bag-like container 12. It is, of course, unnecessary to employ the guard I! when the dome-like container 36 is being worn.

Assuming that the parts of the device are assembled as shown in either Fig. 2 or Fig. 3 and that the device is being worn, when it becomes desirable to remove the bag-like container 12 for emptying or cleaning, this can be readily accomplished. If the guard I1 is being employed this guard can be easily removed, whereupon the retaining ring l5 may be tilted outwardly at its upper portion and the portion of the bag below the retaining ring l5 may then be drawn upwardly through the ring, whereupon it can be emptied and cleaned and replaced. In the meantime, the dome-like container 35 may be applied to the retainin ring l5 and if either the belt is employed or the double belt 32 is employed, the bag l2 may be removed without unfastening either the belt 30 or the belt 32 from the nobs l6 attached to the retaining ring [5. These belts 30 and 32 have enough give to permit tilting of the retaining ring 15 as indicated in Fig. 1 to permit removal of the bag l2. Of course, if the belt 29 is employed or if the belt 32 is employed with the belt section 34, it becomes almost necessary to remove these belts from the keeper l9 the matter shown, and

and raise the belts above the device prior to the time theguard i1 is removed in order to permit of the removal of the bag-like container l2.

It. will be seen that a highly effective though simple stoma receiver has been provided. It, will, of course, be understood that various changes may be made in the form, details, arrangement and proportions of the various parts without departure from the scope of the present invention, which, generally stated, consists in described, and set forth in the appended claims.
