Abstract

It is often desirable to take the tracing of the outline of a patient's limbs for purposes of record, or for the use of the brace-maker. To carry the pencil in the hand in an absolutely vertical position, or with a uniform inclination, is impossible; the result of the attempt is an inaccurate and unsatisfactory outline. The device shown in the illustration makes it possible to obtain an accurate tracing, as the pencil-point is always in the vertical plane of the contour of the limb.
