Article Preview

A garment was designed for wheelchair users in this paper. On one hand, we optimized garment structure to make it easy to wear off, to facilitate long time sitting and toileting with application of ergonomics, on the other hand, according to wheelchair users’ needs, different fabrics were selected and matched to have a comprehensive performance with soft, warm, breathable, antibacterial and wear resistant function. Based on wheelchair users’ questionnaires, combined with technologies such as fabric performance testing, computer graphics software, apparel CAD system, optimized garment greatly improved quality of daily life for wheelchair users, to some extent, providing a reference for future development of care apparel for disabled and elderly people.
