Adaptive clothing

The population is aging. And while people get older, healthcare is under great pressure. At the same time, the elderly and people with special needs like to maintain their independency for as much and as long as possible. But for this group, many daily activities like getting dressed can be a real challenge.

By adapting their clothes, we can take some of the pressure off. The easier it gets to get dressed and to involve in everyday life, the more self-reliant people will be. Additionally, adaptive clothing can help withstand discomforts like incontinence and shakiness. With the right fabric features, adaptive garments make people more self-reliant, comfortable and secure.

What’s in it for me?

Adaptive clothing is not only about adding some extra zippers or velcrostraps. It’s about adjusting garments to the problems that the elderly or special needs people face in everyday life. Garments should be comfortable, soft to the skin and still look classy. Fabrics need to be long-lasting and often washable to withstand rigorous cleaning and usage. Water and oil repellent coatings, for example, help to prevent obvious signs of accidents like spills and stains, while scent coatings neutralise unpleasant smells, giving people a more secure and hygienic feeling. The latest innovation in mineral based technology makes it possible to develop clothing that even improves stability and balance. The ultimate goal is to provide clothing that makes people feel good about themselves, and to make them experience a sense of wellbeing.

We offer various coatings and finishes that offer additional value to adaptive clothing. We add extra functions to your fabrics and make them feel soft and comfortable without altering their look. With these features, you can upgrade the value of adaptive clothing from easy dressing to comfortable living.

With the right fabric features, adaptive clothing can be of real value in making the life of the elderly and disabled more comfortable. Be a part of this fulfilling industry and check out the possibilities:
