Patented June 24, 1930 artar GARMENT Application filed February 3, 1930. Serial No. 425,617.
My invention relates to physiotherapy garments for use by patients when receiv ing medical treatment wherein use is made of certain well-known therapeutic lamps whose light beams are intended to be 1mpressed upon the body or where other 1nstrumentalities are employed in the treatment of certain diseases, and an object of the invention is to provide a garment which is so constructed and designed that, when same is worn by a patient undergoing treatment, parts of the garment can be adjusted to positions so that only that part of the body adjacent to the affected organs to be treated need be exposed to view.
A further object of the invention is to provide a garment of the character described which is simple and inexpensive of construction, entirely practical for the purpose intended, one which can be easily applied to the person of the user, and one which will permit of quick adjustment by the physician of portions of the garment when giving light or other treatments. A further object of the invention is to provide a g ent which will serve very largely to avoid shocking the patients sense of modesty when the patient is undergoing treatment.
In the accompanying drawings,
Figure l is a view in front elevation of the garments;
Figure 2 is a view in rear elevation of same;
Figure 8 is a section on line 33 of Figure 1;
Figure 4 is a section on line l l of Figure 1; and
Figure 5 is a section on line 55 of Figure 1.
The garment comprises a skirt portion 6 and a waist portion The garment is preferably constructed of three pieces of suitable textile material, which I have indicated herein by the numerals 8, 9 and 10, the waist portion 7 being almost made up from the pieces 9 and 10.
The pieces 9 and 10, which are located at the back of the garment, are sewed to the front piece 8 along the longitudinal lines 11 at the sides of the said skirt. The skirt is entirelyclosed in the front, but at the back the portions 9 and 10 are divided along a central or continuous line from the bottom of the garment to the neck 12 thereof, and, as illustrated, the inner edge of the piece 9 is formed with buttonholes 13 to accommodate buttons 14 on the edge of the piece 10, whereby when the back of the garment is open the garment can be easily applied to the person of the user and then brought to a closed position. The said pieces 9 and 10, which are extended from the bottom of the garment to the neck line, are; folded over at the shoulders and same are extended downward at the front to apoint where the buttons 15 at their lower front edges may be fastened in the buttonholes 16 in the upper edges of the front pieceS. Along a central line the pieces 9 and 10 are detach ably connected with each other by means of buttons 17 on the vertical edge of the piece 9 and buttonholes Ben the vertical edge of the piece 10. At the waistportion of the garment the said pieces 9 andlO are formed to provide short sleeves 19. -This is accom plished by stitching the front and rear folds v of the pieces 9 and 10 along the lines 20.
Upon reference to Figure 1 of the draw-- ing, it is now observed that I have provided a garment wherein either corner of the w front skirt forming piece 8 can be folded over onto a portion of the garment when unbuttoned at the waist line, so that tl1e portion of the body upon which'the light ray is to' be impressed or at which other 5 treatment is to be given will be exposed and that portion only. This is made possible through thefact that the seams 11 do not extend entirely to the waist line. They are shown to terminate approximately at the points marked X in Figure 1. This also makes it possible to fold the entire upper portion of the piece 8 upon itself to expose a larger area of the body if desired. 9 What applies to the characterizing features of the garment whereby respective portions below the waist line can be folded or adjusted so as to expose only a single part of l the body, applies equally to the waist lUU of the garment, it being appreciated that by means of the buttons 17 and the buttonholes 18, the portion of the waist either at the right or at the left and at the front of the garment can be adjusted to an open position.
The features above described apply to a large extent to the back of the garment, as the latter is open from the extreme bottom of the garment to the neck line.
A garment constructed as herein set forth is entirely practical for the purpose intended and as designed same may be constructed at small expense and, when worn by a patient, the various portions thereof throughout practically the entire front or rear of the patients can be folded over upon an adjacent part of the garment to expose only a limited area of the body, thereby producing a garment which is highly desirable in so far-as may concern proper administration of light or other treatments'a-nd one which will not shock to any degree the modesty of the patient.
I claim as my invention:
1. A garment provided with a waist portion and a skirt portion, the back of the garment being open from the bottom of the garment to the neck thereof, the front of the garment terminating at the waist line, the 'back of the garment having front folds constituting the front of the waist of the garment, and the" said folds having separable connection at the front and having separable connection at the waist line with the front of the skirt.
'2. A garment having a skirt portion and a Waist portion, the back of the garment beingopen from the extreme bottom of the garment to the neck of thegarment, the front of the skirt portion terminating at the waist line and having detachable connection with the front of the waist portion of the garment, the front of the waist portion of the garment being open along a vertical line so as to provide overlapping portions, and means for-detachably connecting the overlapping portions together, the waist portion provided with'short sleeves.
3. A garment formed of three pieces of material, all of which are connected together so as to constitute a skirt portion and a waist portion, the waist portion being entirely formed by two of the said pieces, the waist portion being open in front and 7 adapted to be closed by separable fastenings, and the front of the skirt having separable connection with the lower edge of the front of the Waist, the atorestated two pieces of the garment bein open from the bottom of the garment to the neck and provided with separable fastenin'gs for securing the garment closed at the back.
