“When Dressing Is a Challenge” – adaptive clothing (WSJ, 7-7-16)

Since this article is from the Wall Street Journal, it has more of a business and fashion industry angle than a resource slant.  But I still learned about some adaptive clothing now available.  Products include:

* MagnaReady:  men’s and women’s shirts with hidden magnetic closures and decorative buttons; magnaready.com

* CareZips:  pants with three zippers, positioned to avoid pressure sores; carezips.com

* ABL Denim:  jeans for chair-bound people with higher rear waistbands to avoid pants creeping down; abldenim.com

* Wal-Mart:  sells both ABL Denim jeans and Silvert’s adaptive pants (silverts.com)
