Clothes are essential. They keep us warm, keep us cool, protect our skin and of course they can make a fashion statement too. But for many paraplegics and quadriplegics clothing – although necessary – can be tough. Tough to put on and take off. But also restrictive in terms of blood flow, movement and safety. This is why adaptive clothing is really important and we need more of it.
There aren’t a lot of adaptive clothing labels out there, which in Australia is surprising. Almost 20% of Aussies now have disabilities. For any clothing label, that’s a big market waiting to snap up adaptive products. Especially ones as essential (and enjoyable!) as clothing. That’s why we’ve put together some options and best of all they’re all Australian labels.
Adaptive clothing, more than just a fashion statement.
