IMPROVEMENT IN STEAM-BATHS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 55, ISM, dated May 29, 1866.
To all flu/tom it may concern.- I
Be it known that I, J. YOUNG, of lVilliamsburg, Kings county, State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Steam-Bathing Apparatus; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable others skilled in theartto make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying' drawings, forming part of this specification, in which- Fgure l represents a vertical central section of the annular' steam-chamber through which I inject steam. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of my apparatus.
Similar letters ofreferenceindieatelike parts.
rlhis invention relates to an apparatus which enables any person to take a steambath in his or her room without requiring a cumbersome mechanism, steam being generated inan ordinary. tea-kettle, or any other suitable vessel,
.and injected intov an annular chamber which is whereby the jets of steam issuing from the holes b are prevented from coming in direct contact with any portion ofthe body of the patient. This annular chamber is furnished with an inlet-tube, d, which connects, by a flexible pipe of india-rubber or other suitable material, with a suitable steam-generator. An ordinary tea-kettle may be used for that purpose it' no other vessel is conveniently at hand.
The patient occupies a chair placed within a frame, B, of wire or other suitable material, of convenient form or shape, so that a sheet of linen or other cloth hung on said frame will completely envelop the patient.
The steam dischargi-n g from the annular chamber A is thus concentrated in the space inclosed bythe frame B, and in a few minutes the patient can be made to per-spire profusely.
The apparatus is particularly intended as a cure of the cholera, it being well known that this disease is broken as soon as the patient begins to perspirc. 4
WVhat I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
The arrangement within the cage B, which supports the inclosing-sheets, ot' the perforated steam-chamber A, with detlector-plate c, substantially as described and represented.
