SPECIFICATION forming part of `Letters Patent; 0. 702,759, `dated. J' une 17, 1902.
Application filed October 14.1901. -Serial No. 78,603. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.: y
Be it known that I, TONY L. ALLEGRETTI, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new anduseful Improvements in Water-Bags, of which thel following is a specification.
This invention relates to that class of waterbags commonly known as hotwater bags and used to be applied to variousparts of the person to give relief from pain or for'- other purposes, and is more especially a water-bag of this nature which is designed to be applied upon the face o r forehead. It consists in the novel features which will be pointed out hereinafter, and is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a view showing a device embodying this invention as applied to the forehead. Fig. 2 is a View showing the device removed, and Fig. 3 is a view showinga sectional detail of a modified form of construction. A represents the waterbag as a whole, which consists of awbroad upper portion a and depending lobes a a', forminga recess of* for the nose. sides with strings or ribbons b b, secured to ears b b and adapted to be passed around the head and tied'to secure the bag in position. The ears b 'b'. are vpreferably placed about midway of theends, so that the strings will when passed aroundK the`head securely hold the device in position.l lThe bag is filled through an aperture C, which may be closed with any suitable plug or cork, such as c.
Although it is intended that the bag may be made of a single thickness ofckmaterial in thel well-known manner, I have'shown in Fig. 3 a modified form of construction in which the'bag A is covered-by a coveringdd,
one member, d, of which,representing the up-Y per side of the bag, is ofsuitable thickness and of suchnon-conducting material, as wool or felt, that the heat may be `retained there- The bag is provided at the.
water and applied as shown, being securely held in place vby strings, or if it is 'desiredl to reduce the temperature it may be filled with This device is found to be an efticient means4- :ice-water and similarly applied. While itis to apply heat to thehead in case of headache or other pains and isequally useful when itis desired to cause perspiration, as for various facial treatments.
kllhile the description and ldrawings show the preferred embodiment of myl invention,
Ido not wish to limit the same to the precise construction shown; but
What I claim, and desire to :secure by Le'tters Patent, is-L 1. Akwater-bag adapted'to be applied .to
the upper portion of the face, which comprises a water-tight oblong. receptacle aportion of which is adapted to cover the forehead and has one of the upper corners extended with a filling-aperture therein, and a y plug for closing said aperture, depending 'lobes made integral-with the lower edgeof the receptacle havingacurved portion thered f f between for the reception of the nose, ears Y made integral with the endsof the oblong receptacle about midway of its width, and'` receptacle tothe head, `substantially as destrings attached to said ears for binding the scribed.
2. A water-bag adapted to be applied to f the face, which comprises a' water-,tight ilexible-receptacle having an aperture for filling` the same and a plug for closing the aperture,
a covering of thick non-,conducting 4material secured to the outer face Ofsaid'receptacle i TONY L. Witnesses:
