Customers have been telling us tales of having to put a jacket on back to front because of the difficulty of dressing, but our simple alteration means that this still looks and functions like an ordinary jacket but is much easier to put on.  

If the wearer has a moulded chair we can even offer the cutaway version - like the backless cape - which fastens across the shoulders, but is then cut away lower down the back so that it just tucks in between the body and the chair back, with no awkward extra fabric to try to push down behind the wearer's back.

These variations permit the wearer to have a jacket which is simplicity itself to put on but with the appearance of an ordinary jacket.

Customers buying the back-opening or jacket might like to buy the caped hood, which in addition to offering a waterproof hood has a fly cape to go over the back of the chair for added waterproofing.
Please ensure that someone else measures you, and you are measured sitting in your chair, not lying flat.

It is better to be measured in the afternoon, when your body has settled down into your chair. Accurate measurements are particularly important when orders are being sent outside the UK.

Please note that men's trousers are sold by waist size and women's by hip size.

CHEST
Fleece garments such as cape and ponchos are roomy and are an approximate size.

S/M is approximately 34-42" chest
L/XL is approximtely 43/50" chest

Fleece jackets are sized as shown on the site page

WAIST
The waist is measured around the natural waistline, and trousers are supplied to fit this measurement. 

HIP
The hips are measured by putting the measuring tape around the hips, just where the person's seat meets the cushion of the chair, and brought across the front of the lap at the end of the hips..  This gives a diagonal hip measurment.

LEG LENGTH
It is important to remember that trousers worn when seated should have a leg length approximately 4" longer than when standing.  For this reason it is important not to order for wheelchair wear the same length as previously worn when standing and walking.  Trousers will be supplied hemmed at 33" and 35" and unhemmed for you to have hemmed to the length you prefer.  We can supply them hemmed and ready to wear at other lengths for a small hemming fee.  Trousers supplied longer than 35" will have to be made to order and a special measure charge will apply.

SOCKS AND SLIPPERS
Even if you have oedema please request the size you would normally have bought, as these products have been specially sized to fit.

GLOVES
Please download the size charge and place your hand on it to ascertain the size you require.

WATERPROOFS
Chest sizes apply unless otherwise shown.

For the pull-on cosytoes snug the S/M is appropriate for someone up to a height of 5'5" and thereafter the L/XL should be selected.  For anyone who is very tall, over 6'2" please contact us.
