Pants Up Easy Core Competencies For Federal Procurement

April 8, 2016 | 8:00 am | By Pants Up Easy

Pants Up Easy provides a solution to those with paraplegia, spinal cords injuries (SCI) and wounded veterans. It addresses a need which is common to people with paralysis and confined to a wheelchair, but one that many people are not aware of. It’s extremely difficult and time consuming for someone who can’t stand on their own to pull their pants up without assistance.

 The Pants Up Easy system enables a safe way for wheelchairs to lift themselves up sufficiently to pull their pants up. It eliminates the need for one to rock back and forth in order to do so, which is uncomfortable or even painful, as well as dangerous.The unique quality of this product is the simple way that it allows the user to lift themselves up from their seat to dress, while leaving their hands free to reach down to pull their pants up easily.

Pants Up Easy products are relevant to federal procurement because it makes daily life activities much easier for the large number of wounded veterans with loss of mobility. If you’re a federal procurement officer looking into this product, I’m sure you’ll want to see our core competencies:

  • Reduces pain and pressure sore irritation associated with pulling pants up

As mentioned earlier, it’s not only awkward for those with mobility loss to dress, it’s also often uncomfortable or even painful. Sliding around in a seat, or dressing improperly and allowing clothes to get bunched up can result in pressure sore. Pants Up Easy provides a way to dress that avoids this problem.

  • Saves significant time

The inventor of Pants Up Easy noticed that his friend, a paraplegic, took a long time on trips to the bathroom, and was surprised to learn that much of that time was spent trying to pull his pants up. The products address that need with a simple, time-saving solution.

  • Reduces embarrassing moments

It can be embarrassing to take a long time to make a simple trip to the bathroom, as well as coming out with one’s clothes not on properly. Pants Up Easy eliminates that problem.

  • Maintains individual dignity and independence

In addition to physical challenges, wounded veterans and others with mobility loss also lose much of their autonomy. This often leads to depression, anxiety, and even despair. Pants Up Easy allows people to regain more of their independence and maintain more of their dignity.

  • Reduces need for assistance from others while dressing
