Pants Dressing Aid


TOM @ Uni




Spiros would like a device to help him put pants on independently. He currently uses some of the limited time with his support worker to assist him in getting dressed. He would like to develop a product to assist him in finding a way to pull up his pants independently from a seated position.


Team Spiros developed a dressing aid to assist in the motion of pulling his pants up. The device is low-tech and affordable, made from readily available materials. By moving his legs in a downwards motion, the rollers provide mechanical support to pull the pants up his legs, until he is able to hold them with his hands and finish dressing himself. Spiros and his team want to develop this prototype further to be more comfortable and improve its safety.
