Special Needs & Adaptive Clothing

Many times when people think of “special needs”, they’ll think of either children or seniors, but special needs range across the entire age spectrum. People with special needs are important people in our communities, and mean a lot to their families. It’s definitely a group of people that we should always pay close attention to.

People who have special needs are those that can have some challenges in a variety of different ways. Those challenges range from physical difficulties, where they simply have more difficulty getting around, or they can be behavioral. Due to the special needs, it makes it that much harder to go about your day (particularly with clothing).

This article is about the different special needs and the challenges that are posed with every kind of clothing situation.


Autism is one of the most common special needs situations out there .

Special Needs are human disorders that apply to all age groups. Many of the special needs include:

  • Arthiritis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Motor Neurone Disease
  • Oedema
  • Incontinence
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Stroke
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Brain Injury
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Contractures

These are all kinds of special conditions that many people can deal with in their life.

With these special conditions, there should be adaptive clothing products for each kind of condition. That’s what we are working on at Stitches Medical.
