Torso-mounted holder tray assembly
Holder for a stethoscope or the like
Stethoscope holder Patent #: 5692657
AbstractA stethoscope carrier has a stethoscope bell receiver space formed by anteriorly protruding bell receiver flanges and a recessed bell retaining collar; a pair of ear piece retaining grooves together with a set of ear piece retaining groove keepers located laterally on the carrier; a set of stethoscope tubing retainers consisting of an arched tubing shelf/retainer and side tubing retainers; and, optionally, a waist clip forming the most posterior aspect of the carrier. The stethoscope bell receiver space and ear piece retaining grooves are precisely sized to receive and protectively store and release the bell and ear pieces of a stethoscope in a slip-fit relationship. The stethoscope tubing retainers allow the excess stethoscope tubing to be wrapped around the carrier. Lastly, the waist clip provides a means for securing the carrier as a whole.
