Our unique "Petal Back" design allows quick and easy dessing and undressing. The clothing can be put on frontwards without raising the arms, eliminating the need to bend or rotate muscles or joints. With all of our designs, there is no Velcro®, snaps or buttons. For maximum comfort we use only soft seams to eliminate scratching or itching on delicate soft skin.

Longer length the help maintain dignity. Perfect for wearing while using a wheelchair, princess, tub or recliner chair.

For extra warmth we recommend wearing our assistive singlet underneath or our long poncho during the day.
