Men's adaptive shirts are specially designed clothes for people with disabilities, the elderly and the infirm. Adaptions to conventional apparel designs, such as open back tops and magnetic button shirts, make dressing easier for independent adults, and less hassle for both the caregiver and the senior individual being dressed.
Silverts adaptive clothing is appropriate for younger people for temporary wear, for patients who may need dressing assistance or special care when recovering from a surgery or injury, such as frozen shoulder, torn shoulder, dislocated shoulder, rotator cuff, tendonitis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome or or a broken arm, broken wrist, broken hand, and such.
Mens Adaptive clothing tops, T-shirts, polo shirts, sport shirts and dress shirts completely open and allow the person being dressed to have their arms slid into the adaptive garment without ever having to raise their arms. Snaps are strategically placed on the shoulders to avoid pressure points, and the full back overlap provides complete coverage and dignity.
What are some of the different types of Adaptive Shirts?
Magnetic Button Shirts:
Mens shirts with magnetic closures are terrific for seniors with arthritis, neuropathy, MS (multiple sclerosis) or disabled adults who have trouble with buttons and need adaptive clothing. This easy access shirt for elderly men is secured with hidden magnets instead of buttons. These mens shirts are great dress shirts for special occasions, holidays, business events, and occasions requiring a shirt and tie.
With these shirts for males, fashion meets functionality and provides ease and comfort. The magnetic buttons on this adaptive mens shirt are strong enough to stay closed when you want and easy to open when you need them to open.
Magnetic closure features are also great for those with lowered hand dexterity when paralysis is an issue, or for patients with arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s, Neuropathy, Peripheral Neuropathy, Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS or a stroke. They also work great for those with a broken arm, broken wrist, broken hand, or other injury which limits their movement.
The faux-button placket and cuffs conceal magnetic closures that make dressing incredibly easy. The back has an inverted pleat for seated-comfort and room to move. The shirt tail on this magnetic button shirt is long enough to stay tucked in and also looks great when worn loose.
