What Are Open Backed Pants?

Open-back pants are adaptive garments designed with an open back. These pants are especially well-suited for individuals in wheelchairs or those who cannot comfortably wear traditional pants due to mobility constraints. They are also a practical choice for caregivers, as they enable individuals to be changed while either standing or lying down.

Open-back pants feature a back cutout design with generously sized modesty flaps to ensure coverage. Fastening is accomplished through three snaps located at the back of the pants, allowing for an adjustment of approximately 1.5 to 2 inches.
