Adaptive clothing provides easy dressing solutions with adaptive designs for seniors and disabled people. Clothes for seniors should be easy to wear so they don’t have to struggle needlessly with narrow neck openings or difficult to button pants waist bands to dress or undress.
Adaptive clothing features open back functionality in tops, side open designs in pants, hidden magnetic snap fasteners instead of conventional buttons and easy touch closures in footwear. All these helpful features enable seniors or disabled people to dress with dignity, comfort and style.
Who Can Wear Adaptive Clothing?
Seniors with physical disabilities, wheelchair users, elderly with limited mobility and the infirm who may have difficulty dressing without assistance can benefit from adaptive wear. Silvert’s Adaptive clothing line is for those individuals who need struggle-free and pain-free dressing options.
