It is estimated that 350 million people worldwide suffer from some form of Arthritis. As issues of pain, reduced mobility and dexterity advance, full time wheelchair dependency can occur. There is a range of regular and adaptive clothing that can reduce the stress around the task of dressing and undressing for individuals suffering from Arthritis. Consider full elastic pull on pants, side open slacks and wrap skirts as well as over the head tops when dexterity, flexibility and mobility hinder dressing independence and special arthritis clothing is required.
When full wheelchair dependency occurs and/or the individual can no longer bear weight, there is a full line of arthritis clothing that tremendously assists the caregiver and individual in the dressing function. Open back slacks and trousers slip over the legs, pulled up to the hip area and fastened at the back while the individual remains in a seated or prone position. Similarly dresses and tops, including blouses, men’s shirts, cardigans and sleepwear are pulled over the arms, up to the shoulders and fastened at the back. All dome closures are designed and placed on the garment to avoid pressure points on most individuals.
