"In Letters Patent No. 110,370 a truss-pad is shown of perforated metal with a separate perforated pad, the same being especially adapted to a hernia. My present invention consists in an improvement upon the aforesaid patent, whereby the perforated pad is constructed so as to be used as an umbilical truss. I stamp up the sheet of perforated metal with a hollow projecting presser that enters the umbilicus, and the perforated plate is connected by recesses to hooks and straps that secure the truss in place."
