What is Adaptive Clothing?
Adaptive clothing is engineered to meet the needs of individuals with limited mobility. Any clothing and footwear designed specifically for seniors, the elderly, disabled adults and individuals who need assistance in dressing is considered adaptive. Typically, garments are fitted with additional design features like back snap fasteners, VELCRO® tabs and elasticized waistbands that replace traditional closures and seams. These features eliminate the pain and frustration from dressing that conventional clothing can cause by producing attire that is easy to put on and just as easy to disrobe.
A common misconception of adaptive apparel is that it is wheelchair user clothing or only for those with severe disabilities. While this clothing is extremely beneficial for these individuals, truly anyone who suffers from arthritis, limited dexterity in their hands, incontinence problems, Alzheimer’s, complications from MS /ALS, and even foot problems can enjoy the benefits of dressing with adaptive clothing.
