    Misplacing organs is sheer carelessness.

    Apparently this did not catch on.

    KD5ZS, they hadn’t invented PMS yet, they where still into misplaced organs.

    I printed this out and showed it to my wife–told her this looked like it was made for her.

    I now have a misplaced organ.

    And they weren’t hammond or pipe organs either…..too early for Bionic organs…

    This device is meant to treat chronic uterine prolapse, something not often seen these days.

    Basically, any pre-1960s ad relating to feminine problems will always be couched in euphemistic terms.

    It is for men and women. “Over 800,000 satisfied users—men, women!”

    Charlene: Apparently the company was around for a long time here is an ad from 1899.

    This sounds like a device similar to a truss which was used to hold a hernia in place, hence rupture. Surgery was far more risky in those days, due to a lack of antibiotics and other medical technology. I’m sure many folks would rather wear a device in those days.

    Any surgeon will tell you a truss isn’t worth a damn. I opted for the operation.

    Any surgeon will tell you a truss isn’t worth a damn.

    i don’t really doubt that they’re right, but OTOH they would say that, now wouldn’t they?

    I was glad to have the operations done as I felt that I was falling apart prior to the operations.

    @Charlene: This device was NOT designed to treat uterine prolapse.

    It’s definitely in the same vein as you are looking for, but not that one.

    Ghani – see a doctor. You’ve wandered into a web site dealing with old magazine stories.

    (And for what it’s worth, a 1cm thick rubber mat in front of the sink can help sometimes.)
