COLOSTOMY POUCH APPARATUS
. Isaiah F. Spindell, Lynn, Mass.
Application December‘lS, 1934, Serial No. 758,062
3 Claims. (Cl. 12S-_283)
My invention relates to surgical appliances and threads incorporated therein throughout its
to colostomy pouch apparatuses in particular, and
it has for its object to provide an improved ap
paratus of this class.
An objectionable feature characterizing devices
of this class as heretofore constructed has re
sided in the construction and operation of the
waistband for holding the pouch in position on
and against the wearer’s body.
Sometimes the waistband has been made lon
gitudinally elastic and sometimes non-elastic.
Also, it is old to construct the waistband with
a single body-encircling strap, or with two straps
disposed edge-to-edge throughout their lengths or
.15 separated so that one could occupy a position
above and the other below the hips at opposite
sides of the body.
Difficulty has been experienced, however, 1n
providing a waistband which would yieldingly
20 and securely hold the pouch snugly in a fixed
position against the wearer’s body in all posi
tions of the latter, and most of the construc~
tions heretofore proposed have not been fully
satisfactory in this respect so far as I know.
lVfy invention has for its main object to provide
a waistband structure which will be more effi
cient than those heretofore proposed and which
will serve to hold the pouch yieldingly and snugly
against the wearer’s body in all positions of the
30 latter as while standing and While lying down.
To these ends I have provided an improved
colostomy pouch apparatus or outfit having the
peculiar features of construction set forth in the
following description, the several novel features
of the invention being separately pointed out and
defined in the claims at the close thereof.
In the accompanying drawings:
Figure 1 is a front elevation, partly broken
away, of a colostomy pouch showing the oppo
40 site end portions of my improved waistband
attached thereto.
Figure 2 is a side elevation of a portion of a
human body having applied thereto a colostomy
pouch apparatus constructed in accordance with
45 my invention.
Figure 3 is a front elevation of one end portion
of my improved waistband and
Figure 4 is a front elevation of the opposite
end portion of the waistband, said two figures
Ul O showing the latter in its entirety.
The main feature of novelty of my invention
resides in the construction of the waistband and
the illustrated embodiment thereof comprises
two webs or straps I0 and II each of which is a
55 woven textile fabric having elastic rubber warp
width in the usual manner so that the web is
longitudinally elastic and transversely non-elas
tic.
For a portion of their lengths and mid-way v
between their opposite ends the two Webs are
disposed relatively parallel and have their proxi
mate marginal portions overlapped as shown in
Figs. 3 and 4.
p
‘
The middle portions of the Webs are fixed in ' 10
their relatively overlapped positions by trans
verse strips or tapes I2, one at each end thereof,
and constitute the middle section A of the body of
the waistband which latter also includes two op
posite end sections B each consisting of the two « 15
proximate end portions of the Webs.
The marginal portions of each strip I2 are
fastened to the webs by lines through-and
through stitching which define a pocket beneath
said strip within which is confined a transversely ‘
disposed flexible stay I4 and which also fasten
the overlapped portions of the webs together.
From each transverse strip I2 the proximate
end portions of the webs extend convergingly for
a substantial distance to provide an end section
B, and have their extremities superposed and
approximately registered one with the other.
Extending transversely across the end of the
outermost web I0 is a reinforcing strip or tape
I5 which is fastened in position thereon by
through-and-through stitching I6 which also
serves to secure the ends of the webs together.
Between the strip l5 and web I0 of the body
section B are disposed proximate ends of a pair
of parallel straps I'I whose opposite ends are per
manently equipped with metal eyes I 8. Adja
cent to the eyes I8 is a transversely disposed
reinforcing tie in the form of a strip or tape
I9 whose opposite end portions are secured to
said straps by through-and-through stitching
20.
This stitching also secures one end of a
40
textile shield extension 2| to the straps I1, said
shield being for use between the eyes I8 and the4
body of the wearer when the waistband is in
position upon the latter.
45
Between the strip I5 and web I0 of the oppo
site body section B are disposed proximate ends
of another pair of parallel straps 22 on each of
which is adjustably mounted a hook member 23
to co-operate with one of the eyes I8.
50
The hook members 23 are independently ad
justable so that the effective length of each strap
22 may be varied to suit the requirements im
posed by the shape of the wearer’s body, and it
will also be clear that when the waistband is 55
2

in position on the body one of these straps may
be positioned above the hip at one side of the
body and the other below so that displacement
of the straps relatively to the body is prevented.
If the waistband extends around and over the
hip at the opposite side of the body, it will be
clear that the longitudinal elasticity of the body
of the band will permit the latter to conform
to the shape of the wearer’s body.
10
The straps I1 are provided to interlock with
and press against the usual wire frame or cage
23 within which the usual rubber pouch 24 is
confined. That is to say, the straps l1 extend
around the outside of the cage 23 and occupy
15 positions behind arms or lugs 25 provided on the
frame of cage 23, said arms or lugs being part
of a horizontal crossbar or wire 28 which is en
gaged by the strap so as to hold the pouch frame
against displacement vertically relatively to the
20 waistband, said straps I1 providing a narrow
slit between them through which a part of the
frame of the pouch is buttoned.
'I'he apparatus is applied to the body of the
wearer by extending the waistband around said
25 body with the inlet-of the pouch in register with
and surrounding the opening in the wearer’s body
and after adjustment thereof the hook members
23 are engaged with the eyes i8. The body por
tion A-B of the waistband is not’only longitudi
nally elastic and elastically conformable to the
shape of the body but the overlapping portions
of the waistband webs between the strips I2 and
also between the strips I2 and l5 are not stitched
or otherwise joined together so that said inter
mediate portions of the two webs which are op
posite each other are free to adjust themselves
relatively thereby further increasing the capacity
of the waistband to ñt itself to the body.
What I claim is:
1. A colostorny pouch apparatus having, in
combination, a pouch-supporting wire cage for
removably holding a pouch in position against the
body of the wearer, and a waistband consisting of
two longitudinally elastic webs of equal length
disposed side by side in overlapped relationship
45 throughout their lengths with their intermedi
ate back-engaging portions disposed relatively
parallel and partially overlapped and with oppo
site pairs of proximate end portions of said webs
converging toward each other and having their
extremities disposed in superposed relation, a
transverse stay at the junction of each pair of
converging end portions with said parallel inter
mediate portions and fastened to both of said
webs so as to maintain the intermediate portions
of the latter normally parallel and partially over 10
lapped, means fastening the extremities of each
pair of end portions in superposed relation, and
means for separably attaching the opposite su
perposed ends of the webs to said pouch-support
ing wire frame.
2. As a new article of manufacture, a waist
band for removably
holding frame, said
longitudinally elastic
posed side by side
supporting a wire pouch
waistband comprising two
webs of equal lengths dis
in overlapped relationship 20
throughout their lengths with two independently
elastic intermediate back-engaging portions of
said websdisposed parallel to each other and
partially overlapped and with opposite pairs of
proximate end portions of said webs converging 25
toward each other and having their extremities
disposed in superposed relation, a transversely
disposed endwise stiff and laterally iiexible stay
at the junction of each pair of converging end
portions with said parallel intermediate portions
and fastened to said webs so as to maintain the
intermediate portions of the latter normally par
allel and partially overlapped, means fastening
the extremities of each pair of end portions in
superposed relation, and strap means for sepa~ 35
rably and adjustably connecting the opposite
superposed ends of the webs together and for
separably supporting said wire frame.
3. `As a new article of manufacture, a waist
band constructed in accordance with claim 2 40
wherein said last-mentioned strap means com
prises two parallel straps disposed edge to edge
and providing between them a slit through which
a part of said frame is removably buttoned to
.secure the latter to the waistband.
