Application filed January 28,
1892- ESerial No. 419,515. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM C. BLADES, a citizen of the United States, residing in Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, haveinvented a certain new and useful Improvement in Base-Ball Apparatus, of which the following is a specification.
The object of the invention is to relieve the right arm. It may be used by all the players, but more especially by the pitcher. It provides an elastic tension on the lower part of the arm. The severe work imposed on the right arm in pitchinginduces lamenessin the duce permanent deformity, the right arm of some base-ball players being found to measure considerably longer than the left.
rior, a band extending around the chest of the wearer in or near the line of the shoulwith provisions for holding it in place, and contractile springs connecting these parts on the front and back of the arm. springs may be and preferably are in asingle piece extending around the person, pulling with a nearly constant force on the end. The tension fortifies the muscles and contributes greatly to the comfort and efficiency of the user, and enables the wearer to subject his arm to great and repeated strains withoutinurv.
lvly invention relates to the construction as fully described below and pointed out in the claims.
The accompanying drawings form a partof this specification and represent what I consider the best means of carrying out the invention.
Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the invention in us Fig. 2 is aperspective View of the apparatus on a larger scale. v
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in both the figures where they appear.
A is the body of the cuff, and A a concave extension adapted to match the elbow. The body A is held together on the outer side-= it matches correctly and that farthest from the body of the wearer-by buckles A A straps, as indicated,
By taking up and letting out one or the other of these straps the cuff can be varied in size and in taper. It is important that firmly on the forearm of the wearer in position to allow the concave extension or pocket A to match upon the exterior of the elbow of the wearer.
A is a buckle on the exterior of the pocket A near its upper end, and A is a strap, sewed to such pocket and forming a loop, which can be varied in length by means of the buckle A, as shown.
adjusted at the front by means of buckles B B on one end, receiving corresponding straps from the other end.
0 C are shoulder-straps, sewed to the chestband B at the upper and lower edges of the latter, the material of the shoulder-straps being in excess between these points to form a guide for a sufficiently-thick rope or cord D of vulcanized rubber, which extends around the wearer exterior to the chest-band B, with its ends extended and engaged with the cuff. One end D extends from the guide behind the shoulder of the wearer and attaches to the loop formed by the strap A. It pulls forcibly on the elbow-pocket A the wearer, and being extended down engages with the snap-hook M, before described. Adjusting the strap A varies the length of the rubber cord D, and in use the to say, when the arm is drawn backward the front end D of the rubber D exerts its elas 1.
