SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 446,518, dated February 17, 1891.

Application ledNovemher 28,1888. Serial No. 292,164. (No model.)

To cir/ZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ALBERT A. IIESSER, a citizen of the United States,residing at Scliuyl kill Haven, in the county of Schuylkill, in the State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Hot-IVaterBag for Use of the Sick, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in the construction of the bag so as to incline the face of it to apply to the soles of the feet in their natural position of rest or to the side of the body while the base of the bagisin the horizontal position. I attain these objects by the means illustrated in the accompanying drawings, on which- Figure l is a front View of the bag asit appears when filled with water. Fig. 2 is a View of the bag when emptied.

Similarletters refer to si milar parts throughout the views.

The top or front part Ais made of sufficient size to rest both the feet against it at one time. rlhe bottom part D is made of sufficient size to form a horizontal support for the bag when filled and resting against the soles of the feetor on the side of the body.

The ends B B are made to fold inward or outward when the bag is empty, for convenience in packing it, and when filled they rise to a triangular form, making the Verticalsupport of the bag when in use.

The bottom part D is made of any convenient width desired for the height and to give the proper angle of.' inclination to the top part when the bag is filled and in use. It also is made to fold inward or outward like the ends for a like purpose.

The neck and stopper E, I place in thehighest part of the bag, so as to prevent all leakage upon the patient or clothing.

I am aware that gas-bags have been made with folds in the sides and end; but the construction as shown in such bags would not permit the bag to stand upon one end, nor was it intended for that purpose.

I claimm A water-bag of triangular or wedge shape, formed with filling-opening E and side folds deepest where united to end pieceD and vanishing' near meeting edge of the two sides, and also with a fold in the flat end D, thus permitting the bag when filled to stand upon said end D and to lie tlat when empty, all as and for the purpose described.
