Adaptive clothing is available for stroke patients who have difficulty dressing themselves due to weakness, immobility, or poor coordination. Clothing for the disabled stroke patient is also designed to make it easier for caregivers to assist a patient when getting dressed. Do you have trouble putting on a bra or button down shirt? Is tying your shoes too difficult? Do you avoid going out because it's a chore to get your pants off to go to the bathroom? Adaptive clothing uses solutions such as velcro or snap closures rather than buttons to make dressing easier, can be applied from a seated position, accommodates problems like swelling or poor circulation, and allows for quick changes when incontinence is an issue. Even pants can be changed from a seated position with no standing.
It is often difficult for stroke patients to tie a shoe, button a button, or even pull on a garment. Adapted clothing offers conveniences such as seated dressing designs, velcro closures, zipper front dresses or robes, comfortable shoes with velcro, front closing bras, open back clothing, wrap skirts, side opening pants, and more. You can also find accessories that help improve safety and cleanliness such as non-skid socks, arm protectors, and protective bibs.
It is challenging to find fashionable clothing that alleviates the daily struggle of dressing for stroke patients. www.silverts.com has a large line of specialty clothing for men and women that can be ordered online. The website also provides videos with informative dressing tips. Their clothing is designed to be inconspicuous and allows the stroke patient to dress with dignity and ease.
