For men and women or individuals with limited mobility or impacted dexterity, choosing an all-day outfit is more possible than ever with adaptive clothing options.

By eliminating back pockets in bottoms, shorts or skirts and utilizing hook and loop or magnetic closures, each piece encourages ease of use and independence. Keeping wearers cool and stylish. T-shirts are a staple in most wardrobes but basic designs can be uncomfortable during a prolonged seated position. Whether dressing up or dressing down, IZ Adaptive has Summer staples to suit a busy week at the office or a rigorous recreational routine.

Wrapping Up For Fall & Winter

In the same way that you might shed layers in summer, it is necessary to bundle up for Fall and Winter.

Suits can inspire confidence while rain gear can help to make that morning commute that much easier. In rain, shine or frigid winter, your wardrobe should always be functional, accessible and stylish.

Whether you are looking to build up your own wardrobe or are exploring on behalf of caregivers, assistive dressing can help to create more accessible, independent and fashionable lifestyle for wearers, no matter their range of mobility.
