ALViN LEE SHOOK .4 TTOR NE Y United States Patent 0 3,253,589 RESTRAKNER MlTS Alvin Lee Shook, 301 S. Pearl, Salem, Ell. Filed Sept. 9, 1964, Ser. No. 395,189 3 Claims. (Cl. 128-133) wounds or sores, or pulling out sutures, to prevent attack-- ing nurses or doctors.
My improved device is intended to avoid a patients sensation of being held immobile, causing hysteria or heart attacks.
While I show in the drawings and hereinafter fully described one specific embodiment of my invention, it is to be distinctly understood that I do not consider my invention to be limited to said specific embodiment, but refer for its scope to the claims appended hereto.
In the drawings:
FIG. 1 is a front view of the mits applied to a patient;
FIG. 2 is a side view of the mits applied to a patient;
FIG. 3 is an enlarged view of the mits and means for applying them to a patient. a
As shown in the drawings, the mits M are two identical, plastic mittens without fingers or thumbs, each having a plurality of air-holes M1 on the back and palmar surfaces. Each mit M has, at its throat, a re-inforcing strap 1 with a buckle 2, so that the strap 1 can be buckled snugly around the patients wrist with a certain degree of elasticity to allow normal circulation and to ensure that the patients bands will be retained within the mits M.
The mits M are connected by a neck ribbon consisting of two layers of ribbons 3 and 4, separably connected by friction type fasteners F. The outer ends of the ribbons 3 and 4 are stitched to the mits M, respectively.
3,253,539 Fatented May 31, 1966 "ice The neck ribbon has mounted thereon a plurality of evenly spaced loops 5. A chin strap S has at each of its ends a snap 6 for attachment to a loop 5. This strap S fitting under the patients chin assures that the patient cannot raise his hands high enough to slip the neck ribbon over his head.
My mits can be provided with means to hold the patients hands against his chest. A back strap R has a snap '7 on each of its ends which are removably attached to buckles 2, respectively, the stra R passing across the patients back. This back strap R is adjustable lengthwise, so that it can be adjusted to hold the mits M as desired.
Having described my invention, whatl claim is:
1. In a pair of restrainer mits, the combination of two identical mittens withoutfingers or thumbs; a reinforcing strap about the throat of each of said mittens, each strap having a buckle so that the strap can be buckled snugly about the patients wrist; a neck ribbon, consisting of two layers separately connected by friction tape, the outer ends of said ribbon being stitched to said mittens respectively; and a chin strap having at each of its ends means adapted to attach said strap to said neck ribbon.
2. A pair of restrainer mits, according to claim 1, in
