A collection of clothing designed for work as well as formal and festive occasions is available from Chairmelotte Wheelchair Couture (chairmelotte.com). These designer clothes aim to meet the specific fit and functional needs of wheelchair users, with special construction considerations designed to make them easy to wear, with a high level of comfort.

The company reports that a proprietary size system is used for the clothing it provides, and that special sizing and adaptations are available, as well as a made-to-measure service. According to the company website, the US-based company AbleData, which provides information about assistive technology and rehabilitation equipment offered by onshore and offshore sources, also publishes product information about Chairmelott’s clothing products.

Among the benefits that will be of value especially to wheelchair users are garments made without seams, pockets, studs, or other features that can cause skin irritation. Armholes for some garments are also cut lower out to the front to create more scope for movement. Sleeves made with extra width can also help accommodate muscular upper arms.
