Three Innovative Female-Owned Companies Changing Adaptive Clothing Market to Improve Elder care

Caregiving is not easy. It is a complex situation in which elder-care professionals are making strides; however, most of the caregiving efforts fall on family members who have little experience or limited knowledge of available resources. One of the efforts arising from the difficulties caregivers face is the growth of the adaptive clothing market.  

As people age, they may become ill or bedridden, joints lose mobility, and closures that were once easy to fasten become impossible for the wearer to manage.

Alium Adaptive Apparel uses advancements in flat seaming machines and specialized closures to produce innovative and stylish adaptive garments for seniors.    

With the soft and athletic-feeling of CareZips pants, caregivers have an easier, faster, and
more efficient access to the abdomen or adult brief to deal with incontinence and hygiene concerns while maintaining the senior’s dignity.  

Dignity Pajamas designs beautiful and comfortable pajamas for men and women with adaptive back Velcro closures, making it easier for the caregiver to change and preserving the dignity and appearance of the person being cared for.

The Presence Family Care Pack includes one Smart Home Center gateway that connects a home to an intelligent cloud; two entry sensors to detect when doors, medicine cabinets, and/or refrigerators are opened or closed; and three motion sensors to generate alerts when potential falls or wandering occur. The solution combines a mobile app with intelligent cloud services, voice control, and low-cost sensors and distributes text alerts about situations that need immediate attention to the senior’s Trusted Circle™, which can include up to 10 individuals.

For homes with one senior, additional features include fall and inactivity detection and sleep monitoring. For homes with multiple occupants, wandering detection allows live-in spouses or caregivers to receive an alert.
