It can be difficult to find clothing that is comfortable for long periods of time when seated. Whether this be in a wheelchair or around the home, these items often need small adaptations. Wheelchair clothing must be easy to put on – whether that is dressing independently or with assistance. Don’t forget some of our clothes are available with VAT relief, so do check if you are eligible! Many of our clothing items can work for multiple conditions (whether you are a wheelchair user or not), we have selected our top picks for wheelchair clothing for men below.
Wheelchair Trousers for Men
At Adaptawear we have a number of clothing options suitable for wheelchair users. The first is our range of elasticated waist trousers. Lightweight and easy to pull on and off they are an ideal smart alternative to tracksuit bottoms. All styles have a high back for added room and comfort when seated for long periods of time. The drawstring front allows you to adjust the waistband to a comfortable fit with no zips or buttons.

For those needing more assistance with toileting or who require hoisting our open back trousers can be a great option. With a roomy fit for wheelchair users the two large flaps at the back overlap with a popper fastening and tuck underneath. The waist band is again fully elasticated for comfort. Another trouser to note is the mens easy-fit drop front trouser. Opening past the hips with discreet zips and a velcro tab. When these trousers are completely fastened they look like any other smart menswear option. Available in grey, black and navy the soft adjustable waist band and roomy fit is a great wheelchair clothing alternative.
