Life comes with its own set of challenges, and at Adaptive Clothing Australia we believe dressing should not be one of them.

Whether it's for yourself, a loved one in a nursing home, or anyone with special needs, adaptive clothing can make a significant difference.

At Adaptive Clothing Australia we are proud to offer a versatile adaptive clothing range that caters to various needs.

From Petal Back off-the-rack selection to our customised adaptive clothing, you'll find options that greatly benefit the wearer.

Why Choose Adaptive Clothing?

Adaptive clothing is specifically designed for those with limited mobility, elderly people in aged care facilities, and anyone who experiences difficulty dressing.

It's all about maintaining dignity and style while offering practical solutions.

Our range includes garments with specialised closures, soft fabrics, and designs that assist in easy dressing and undressing.

Who is adaptive clothing designed for?

  • Wheelchair Users: Clothing that provides ease of movement and comfort while seated.

  • Elderly and Seniors: Especially beneficial in nursing homes and aged care settings where assistance in dressing is often needed.

  • People with Disabilities: From lifting arms to fastening buttons, adaptive clothing simplifies the dressing process.

  • Dementia Patients: Designed with simplicity and ease, reducing the difficulty associated with dressing.

Petal Back: The Off-The-Rack Choice

Adaptive Clothing Australia stocks an exclusive range of Petal Back clothing in various styles, sizes, and patterns. Unlike other adaptive clothing options that use closures like Velcro or magnets, Petal Back’s unique design requires no closure type at all.

How does it work? The clothing opens from the back, slides up the arms, and then over the head. This approach not only reduces the risk of skin tearing but also promotes easy care, comfort, dignity, and ease of dressing for both the wearer and their carer.

Why Choose Petal Back Adaptive Clothing?

  • Healthcare Access: Specifically designed to facilitate healthcare interventions.

  • Easy Care and Comfort: Minimises discomfort and is easy to maintain.

  • Dignity and Ease of Dressing: The unique design eliminates the need for complex fastenings, thus simplifying the dressing process for caregivers and wearers alike.


Customised Adaptive Clothing Options

For those looking for a more tailored approach, we offer a customised service that allows you to get clothing made from scratch or modified to suit your specific needs.

Although these custom options are not available for online purchase, our team is on hand to assist you in creating garments that meet your specific requirements.

What Can You Customise?

  • Materials: Choose the type of fabric that suits you best.

  • Colour: Your choice of colours to fit your style.

  • Design: From shirts to bibs, get clothing that suits your specific needs.
