DEVICE FOR THE TREATMENT OF DISEASES
OF THE GENITAL ORGANS
Joseph Bear Biederman, Cincinnati, Ohio
Application August 10, 1936, Serial No. 95,120
2 Claims. (01. 128-299)
My invention relates to a device for the treat—
Figure 4 is a diagrammatic view of the com
ment of disorders of the genital organs by the plete system for generating and applying alter
alternate application of pressure and suction nating pressure and suction in accordance with
thereto, whereby the blood circulation of the
treated organ is stimulated. '
In the treatment of certain disorders of the
male or female genital organs, it is generally
desirable, as also in the treatment of disorders
affecting other areas of the human body, to in
10 crease the ?ow of blood to the area affected.
Heretofore this increase of circulation has been
e?eoted usually by the indirect method of heat
15
the present invention;
Figure 5 is an elevation showing the applicator 5
in use._

Referring ?rst comprehensively to the system
involved in this invention as illustrated in Figure
4, the numeral l indicates a reciprocating, or
piston, pump arranged to be driven through a
rocking arm 2 by means of a-motor‘ 3. The al
ternating pressures in the chamber 4 of the pump
stimulation, attained either through the appli
are transmitted by means of a hose or other flex
cation of chemical agents or by the use of elec
ible connection 5 to the applicator 6, whereby such
alternating pressures, positive and negative, are 15
applied to the parts to be treated.
In Figure 1 the applicator is illustrated. It
consists basically of a body ‘I which is of elon
gated plan, the side walls curving inwardly in
trical heating elements.
The principal object
of the present invention is to provide means of a
mechanical nature whereby blood circulation may
be stimulated to an even higher degree than may
ordinarily be accomplished by the agencies just
mentioned. It thus becomes possible to treat such
disorders, for instance, as penial ulcers with in
creased e?iciency, and it is also possible to stim
ulate favorably the virility of the organ when
impaired either by disease or sympathetic condi
tions.
A further object of the invention is to provide
a device or applicator whereby alternate pressure
and suction may be e?ectively applied to the
penis or other genital organs.
By reason of the
30 irregularity of contour surrounding the organ
to be treated, it becomes a matter of great diffi
culty to apply alternating pressures, above and
below atmospheric pressure, to the penis or other
genital organ, male or female, as a substantially
CO Cl perfect seal is required between the applicator
termediate their length so as to form a somewhat
constricted section between the portions 8—~8
adapted to ?t into the crotch between the pa
tient’s legs. The body 1 is dished in cross sec
tion and the base 9 is preferably integrally
formed with the side walls l0; said body 1 is con 25
structed of some rigid material such as bakelite,
metal or other suitable substance. The base 9
is provided with a transparent panel H of glass
or quartz which is ?tted into the base so as to
form an airtight joint. Secured to the body 1 30
are two looped straps l2-—l2, which are adapted
to ?t around the thighs of the patient to secure
the body ?rmly in place over the penis or other
genital organ or organs.
Secured to a ?tting 13
of the body 'I is the hose or other ?exible connec
and body surface, otherwise the variations from
tor 5 whereby alternating pressures generated by
the mean atmospheric pressure on the organ will
be so minimized, or wholly prevented, as to re
the pump I are transmitted to the applicator.
duce greatly or wholly negative the effective
40 ness of the device. In the present invention I
have provided in connection with the applicator
a lip or membrane entirely surrounding the ap
plicator whereby a perfect seal between said ap
plicator and the patient’s body surrounding the
45 organ to be treated may be had.
Further objects of my invention will appear
from the following detailed description thereof.
In the drawing:
Figure 1 is an elevation of a device constructed
in accordance with this invention;
Figure 2 is a cross section of the contacting or
sealing means between the applicator and body;
Fig. 3 is a view similar to that shown in Figure
2, the contacting element being, however, com
pressed as when in use;
One of the important features of the present
invention is the means provided for forming a
satisfactorily airtight connection between the
walls i 0 of the applicator and the body surfaces
of the patient surrounding the genitals to be
treated.
This means is illustrated in detail in
Figures 2 and 3 of the drawing, and consists of
a comparatively heavy bead 14 formed of some 45
highly compressible spongy material, as for instance, sponge rubber. This bead is secured to
the lip of walls It! completely surrounding the
body ‘I. The surface of the bead is provided with
an airtight covering l5, which may be a thin
coating of rubber vulcanized over the sponge rub
ber of the bead. Secured to the lower portion
of the bead I4 is a wide lip or membrane l6, which
extends outwardly from the body 1, and a nar
rower lip or membrane I‘! which extends in 55

wardly into the body. The membranes I6 and I‘!
are preferably made of rubber and form, where
they meet under the bead M a suction channel
which extends entirely around the body ‘I. They
may be and preferably are integrally formed with
the covering l5 of the bead.
.
In Figure 5 the applicator is shown secured in
position for treatment of a patient.
As so se
cured the body of the applicator is secured into
the crotch between the legs of the patient, the
straps i2-—l2 being secured around the thighs
of the wearer and being of such tension as to
compress the beads H tightly against the body
surfaces. By reason of the spongy and-highly
compressible nature of the bead it conforms
readily to the bodily contour, Figure 3 of the
drawing illustrating a section of the bead under
compression. Prior to placement of the appli
cator, the skin surrounding the genitals to be
treated is coated with some viscous ?uid, such as
glycerine or Vaseline, the coating being coexten
sive with the applied extension of» the membranes
l6 and I’! of the applicator. This viscous ?uid
cooperating with the membranes and the suction
effect of the channel between same, servesto
perfect an airtight connection between the ap
plicator and the patient’s body so as to permit
maximum e?iciency of the alternating pressure
and suction generated by the pump l. During
application of the treatment the physician is able
to view the treatment through the transparent
panel ll‘ so as to’ permit accurate judgment as
to the- time and intensity of the treatment.
It will be understood that various modi?ca
tions may be made in the details of my inven
tion as above set forth, and I desire that such
changes and alterations as come within the pur
view of the appended claims may be considered
as fully covered hereby.
Having thus fully described my invention, what
I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters
Patent is:
1. In a device of the character speci?ed incom
bination with a rigid dished body portion, an air
tight compressible bead secured entirely around
the rim of said body portion, a ?exible membrane
on the lower edge of said bead, said membrane
forming a free ?ap extending outwardly from
and entirely surrounding said bead, and a mem
brane on the lower edge of said bead, the latter
membrane forming a free ?ap extending from
said ?rst membrane inwardly into and entirely
around said bead.
2. In a device of the character speci?ed in com
bination with a rigid dished body portion; an air
tight compressible bead secured entirely around
the rim of said body portion, a ?exible mem
brane on the lower edge of said bead, said mem
brane forming a free ?ap extending, outwardly
from and entirely surrounding ‘said bead, and a
membrane on the lower edge of said bead, the
latter membrane forming a free ?ap extending
from said first membrane inwardly into and en
tirely around said bead, the combined contour
of said ?rst and second membranes forming a
vacuum channel under and entirely around said
bead.
