Physical Handicap Clothing
What types of garments can you find in the Buck and Buck catalog for
adults with physical handicaps?
Clothing for seniors with physical handicaps varies based upon the unique needs of the person with the handicap or disability. The physical handicap may be permanent or temporary. The person may need the use of assistive devices such as a wheelchair, walker, crutches, prosthetics or a respirator. Assistance in dressing may be needed or independence may be preserved if adaptive clothing is available to them. Buck and Buck specialize in adaptive, easy to wear clothing for physically handicapped adults.
Generously cut garments with easy to use buttons, VELCRO® brand closures, zippers and snaps makes the dressing process easier and can promote independence in dressing for the elderly. We will adapt any of our garments to suit the specific needs of the physically handicapped elderly.
Caregivers recognize the value of our open back and side zip adaptive clothing styles. When used as we suggest the caregiver feels less strain during the dressing procedure. Our selections for women and men are stylish, comfortable and also easy to launder.
We have a line of handicap clothing suitable for the elderly who are confined to wheelchairs. The hemlines of many of our dresses give extra leg coverage when sitting in a wheelchair. This additional length helps to ensure modesty in our handicap clothing. We have coats and shower robes that provide ample coverage and are comfortable for the elderly who must use a wheelchair.
Don't forget to also look at our accessories for wheelchairs and walkers like the shearling arm and hand rests to ease pressure and reduce friction and our selection of walker and wheelchair bags to keep personal items within reach.
