You might ask what are Dobbs Truss? They are a support for rupture or hernia. In 1935 a patent was issued to O. C. Dobbs, who manufactured the Famous Dobbs Truss that he invented. Dobbs developed a hernia and in order to contain or control it, cut a piece of material from an old automobile tire, out of which he fashioned a truss. The hernia corrected itself with this assistance. This led him to experiment until he invented trusses for various types of hernia after which he created the Dobbs Truss Company to market his product. The Dobbs Truss is BULBLESS, BELTLESS AND STRAPLESS! It holds with a soft concave pad, instead of the old type bulb truss. Guaranteed to hold any reducible rupture The DOBBS TRUSS was durable, sanitary and very comfortable.
