Sassy reveals their expansion into adaptive clothing
Apr '12
Sassy Scrubs, based in Upstate New York, manufacturer of custom medical scrubs, hospital uniforms and chef's clothing, announces the latest expansion to their product line. Sassy Scrubs is branching out into the field of adaptive clothing due of the ability of their company to custom make easy-to-wear, non-constrictive garments for people with disabilities, limb differences, and dressing challenges.

Having discovered the difficulties encountered by adults and children with special needs when it comes to locating a fashionable source of clothing, the scrubs company offers a truly unique service. They create adaptive clothing for those with very specific challenges by creating specialized garments which can be customized to fit individual needs.

The uniform manufacturer and e-tailer creates individually ordered garments with special features. Scrub shirts are available with hook and loop closures at the shoulders, soft back openings for ease of dressing and comfort, and in sizes up to 6-XL. Scrubs pants are made with differing leg inseams and wider legs to accommodate leg braces and limb differences.

Other options available are long sleeved scrub tops and jackets with differing sleeve lengths. Sassy Scrubs' special needs customers have enjoyed saving money on custom made garments, especially in comparison to purchasing standard off-the-rack garments and then needing costly alterations; not to mention enduring extended waits for custom alteration services.

Sassy Scrubs President Karen Bradley explains how this service has helped one particular young customer whose range of motion is severely restricted and is mobile only with the help of a wheelchair. “Like all of us, this young man loves to receive compliments. He simply glows in response to flattering remarks from his friends, family members and his caregivers.

We've created scrub tops, just for him, that feature a simple split-up-the-back closure for easy dressing. This has provided him with superior comfort and has reduced irritation to the sensitive tissue on his back, shoulders and neck areas. His parents order his scrub tops in colorful fabrics and in themes that he enjoys such as airplanes, fire trucks and dogs. We like to think about how much pleasure our young friend receives from his custom made Sassy Scrubs.”
