dc.description.abstract <p>This research focused on developing apparel design criteria for men with lower-body mobility impairments and use a wheelchair to assist in mobility. The research procedure consisted of two phases of exploratory qualitative research: (a) a content analysis (Krippendorf, 1980) of adaptive apparel brands websites, products, and popular press articles, and (b) in-person interviews with men who use a wheelchair. Twelve adaptive apparel brands were collected. Seven male participants between the ages of 22-61 participated in the interviews. The researcher observed that fit, ease of donning and doffing, thermal protection, sensory sensitivity, storage, and easy care are essential functional aspects of adaptive clothing and the participants. In addition, independent living and social conformity were noted throughout the content analysis data and the interviews. Based on the findings, the researchers suggested baseline design criteria met the apparel needs of both PLBMI while also considering mainstream users in accordance with the IDC model.</p>
