While unable to prevent pressure ulcers (bed sores), open back clothing can improve the comfort and dignity of a person who is at risk

Pressure ulcers (Bed sores) are most likely to develop when a person is confined to a chair or bed, is unable to change positions without help, has a loss of bowel or bladder control and/or has lost some of their mental awareness to notice the sore developing. While unable to prevent bed sores from developing, open back clothes can dramatically improve the comfort and dignity of a person who is at risk.

Designed to Care's adapted clothes open from the back and are simply done up with pop fasteners, they do not require any standing, lifting or twisting to dress. Moreover, the back can be worn open to avoid and fabric gathering and improve hygiene.
