If you are ruptured you should be inter­ ested in our. ability to fit you ' with a truss that will do its work properly and give you the greatest ease and comfort possible. Scientific and Practical This new- Coliings Truss is based on. the most scientific principles for holding a rup­ ture. It is not only represen­ tative of mechanical perfec­ tion but contains that super­ power for holding a rupture without discomfort, and that makes for a complete recov­ ery where this result is pos­ sible. Contains No Springs ITiere are no springs or metal parts used in this new truss other than the small necessary buckles; instead it is made .of high grade elastic web with soft, pliable cloth back made wider so as to dis­ tribute the pressure over a broader surface. Prevents all cutting and chafing, and gives the necessary uplift to the pads. It Holds the Rupture It is easily, quickly and per­ manently adjiisted so an even and uniform pressure can be constantly maintained at anv desired tension. The patented sectional pads are adaptable I and will fit any kind of rupF- ture. As the cure progresses the pressure can be lessened without a change of pads. It Slays Put When, placed in position, the Truss stays put and does not skid or slide. Regardless of the position of the wearer’s body; stooping, jumping or standing erect, the Truss re­ mains firm and set, and ad­ justs itself as the occasion de­ mands. Comfortable Day or Night To do its maximum amount of good, a truss should be worn continuously ^ day and night. Upon retiring many, people remove th^ir truss, with the result that the weak*\ jened muscular tissues, relax I and oftentimes allow the rup- , tore to .assume the form of the original protrusion. This new Truss can be worn at all times: The Coliings Truss Experts —-Give— FREE DEMONSTRATIONS FOR ONE DAY ONLY T O N p A Y / 0 ^ J ! 2 ^ Every ( ruptured persoa- sho^d visit PUT Truss Expert nd^l^arn whht genuine truss- comfort means.^ No,charge’ for demonstration or infoima? ’ti o n . ; -’’ (^pC W.
