Modified trousers

Customized trousers – suitable for wheelchair users with impaired hand function

Description
The trousers sit high up in the back and stomach, so they cannot slide down during transfers. The seat is made of beaver nylon (Photo 4) to make it easier to slide during transfers.
The extra long zipper extends far down in the crotch. It is modified with a key ring. The trousers have a Velcro closure instead of a button, see associated tip. The trouser legs can be opened on the inside with a zipper to facilitate dressing (Photo 2).

Authors comments
The user began by buying trousers from a company that made clothing for people with disabilities. Then he improved on the idea with his partner.
The zipper that goes deep down in the crotch allows the user to drain urine without pulling down his trousers.
