Knit - Custom Sitter Wheelchair Shorts

Do you sit for most of the day? Do your shorts ride down in the back? Sitter shorts are much more comfortable for chair users! We have been making them for 16 years. They are cut higher in the back and lower in the front so they don't hit the ribs in front, or ride down in back. We offer the most moderately priced sitter shorts on the internet!

We are a bargain when you consider driving around, trying on shorts in stores, paying for gasoline, store overhead, and retail markups. All sitter shorts come with gripper squares running down from the waist to the crotch. A long strip of Velcro isn't comfortable going across the crotch. Gripper squares are easier to line up and close for a more comfortable feel and also provide a secure closure. Our fly goes down to within 1/2" of the leg seam so that you can comfortably use a urinal.

Fabric

  • Interlock Knit: (Side Zippers can only be added to Charcoal Knit) 4 ounce summer weight, stretchy, soft, easy to sit in fabric. Charcoal knit works easily with long outside seam zippers for easy dressing. Similar to kid's PJs. The waist stretches 4" sideways. Knit is the best fabric for pressure sores. If you are dressing someone else, with some tugging and pulling, knit is more delicate that other fabrics, and has to be treated more carefully. Not recommended for nursing home patients, unless the family does the laundry.


Optional Side Zippers

Optional Side zippers are excellent for the person dressed by others. Our side zippers are made of heavy duty Vislan (vinyl). They unzip to mid calf. A tab at the top holds the zipper shut. The front flops down when both side zippers are unzipped. Zippers are most successful in a stretchy fabric. These zippers are strong, and rarely break. We don't use long strips of Velcro inseams, which are stiff, hard to line up, noisy, and buckle on closure. If you order Side Zippers for your shorts they will have a fake fly.

Any short can be returned unwashed within three weeks of receiving it, except for waists shorter than 30", waists larger than 45".
