In the United States, there are 3-4 million wheelchair users, with the number steadily increasing. This book focuses upon the design of garments for wheelchair-users by considering the shape of the body while in the sitting position, the needs of the user (functionality, fashionability, ease-of-use, affordability, safety), as well as the characteristics and properties of the materials used. The book references 186 original resources and includes their direct web link for in-depth reading.
