There are lots of patents on modified clothing, including modified medical purpose clothing. It will come down to your specific modifications and how they compare to past patents/publications. It is worth talking with a patent attorney or two to see if they think you should do a basic patent screening search. If the search looks good, you may have a chance to get your own patent.
