Adaptive clothing is apparel that has been designed for people who have difficulties dressing themselves due to age, disability or general lack of mobility. Common misconceptions of adaptive clothing is that it is only for people who are bound to a wheelchair, however anyone who is limited by traditional clothing can benefit from adaptive clothing.
Many seniors appreciate the ease and comfort that adaptive clothing can offer, such as open back shirts, extra wide slippers and shoes, easy snap pants, and wrap-around skirts and dresses for women.
For those managing health conditions such as ALS, cerebral palsy, Alzheimer's, arthritis, shoulder surgery recovery, edema, or hospital recovery, adaptive clothing can make a significant and appreciated difference in life quality simply by making dressing less difficult.
How Does Adaptive Clothing Make Changing Easier?
Adaptive clothing makes changing easier as it requires less mobility to adjust, remove and put on. These garments focus on keeping motion centralized and close to the body as opposed to stretching your arms, legs or back to adjust them. A primary benefit of adaptive clothing is that caregivers can more easily change clothing on an individual with low mobility.
Types of Adaptive Clothing
Adaptive clothing frequently looks like regular attire at a glance, but offers ease and comfort such as open back shirts, extra wide slip-on slippers and shoes, easy snap pants, and wrap-around skirts and dresses.
Open Back Pants
These types of pants are ideal for those in wheelchairs and people who cannot be constricted by traditional pants or bear weight. Open back pants are cut out at the back but have a modesty flap to provide coverage. They fasten by 3 snaps on the side that allow for adjustment approximately by 1.5 to 2 inches. Open back pants grant caretakers the ability to change someone in a standing or laying position. Check out our Guide to Open Back Pants for more information.
Open Back Tops
Open back clothing is applied by using snaps at the shoulder. This style still provides full coverage as an average shirt but it is much easier to put on and take off. Caregivers also love this style as it provides an easier changing experience as the individual being changed does not need to raise their arms. This style of product is available in long sleeve, short sleeve, polo shirts, blouses and cardigans. Check out our Guide to Open Back Tops for more information.
Dignity (Anti-Strip) Suits
Primarily used with individuals who have Alzheimer's or Dementia, Anti-Strip Suits are used to prevent inappropriate undressing. These suits are done up with snap closures at the back neckline, making it harder for the person wearing the suit to take it off. Caregivers appreciate these suits as it provides safety for the themselves as well as the person they are caring for. To learn more about dignity suits, check out our Guide to Choosing a Dignity Suit.
Adaptive Slippers are easy to remove and put on. By using large Velcro fasteners, adaptive slippers open wider than a traditional slipper, allowing the foot to be easily placed inside with minimal effort. Ideal for those being looked after by a caregiver. Available in wide fit to accommodate for swollen feet.
