Pants Up Easy is a provider of a solution which addresses the needs of people with mobility loss, including paraplegics, wounded veterans, those with spinal cord injuries, and the elderly. The need in question is a common one, and extremely problematic to people with disabilities. The apparently simple activity of getting dressing is almost impossible for someone with mobility loss to do on their own. Specifically, it’s very difficult to pull up one’s pants after going to the bathroom.
The Pants Up Easy products offer a simple, yet unique solution to this situation. The device enables one to lift themselves up enough that they can pull their own pants up, while leaving hands free to reach down and do the act of dressing. It eliminates the need to slide around on the seat or in a wheelchair, which can be uncomfortable or painful.
There are numerous benefits which the products provide. But we know that if you’re a federal procurement officers, that’s still not enough. There’s no point in singing the praises of the products unless they’re produced by a supplier who is registered to do business with the federal government through the US Contractor Registration. Fear not, Pants Up Easy is registered in the System for Award Management (SAM). It’s also certified as a small business, so if your budget has set-aside funds for small businesses, the Pants Up Easy products can be procured using those funds.
The Pants Up Easy system is available in 3 models, for different uses:
This model is intended for wall mounting behind the toilet, but it can be used by mounting on any wall in the home. It does require installation by a professional contractor.
This version is also designed to be placed behind the toilet. However, the difference is that it comes fully assembled, and does not require professional installation.
This version of the system is designed to set up anywhere, and will work with most wheelchairs to allow the user to get dressed while in the wheelchair. It also comes fully assembled, and does not require any installation at all.
