Claims:
1. The primary distinguishable design element of the SpaScrubs garment line is it's unique construction which allows the user easy access to specific areas of the body while maintaining maximum coverage for the rest of the body which is unlike current hospital scrubs in use for patients because SpaScrubs offers significantly more coverage for privacy and the comfort of warmth for the front, sides and back of the body during treatment by allowing the appropriate segment of the garment to be folded back in quadrants for limited exposure only while these unique garments also provide maximum accommodation to people with limited mobility concerns and allow for dressing while minimizing the discomfort but that's not all because this line also offers practitioners a new professional style of dress that is not available on the market and it can be worn alone as scrubs or over clothes for the convenience of protection as well as quick changes for a fast paced lifestyle.
