Image Number 5 for United States Patent #4991234.

A support band is disclosed having elastic portions and hook and loop fastener portions for encircling a portion of a wearer's body. One hook segment is positioned adjacent to the terminating end of the band and another hook segment is positioned intermediate between the starting and terminating ends of the band. One portion of the loops is positioned adjacent the starting end of the band and another portion of the loops is positioned intermediate between the starting and terminating ends of the band. The band forms a tubular support device encircling the body portion wherein the intermediate hook segment engages the starting end portion of the loops after the initial wrap of the band to form an anchor point, and the terminating end hook segment engages an intermediate portion of the loops upon final wrapping of the band, said wrappings being made with the band under tension.
