240-06-23-17 Myself Belts
Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look
at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to
help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or
other special needs!
In recent blog posts, I've been stressing the importance of
children learning to dress themselves. Doing so encourages
self-confidence, independence and more. Myself Belts is a
product born out of these ideals and is designed to help
individuals of all ages and abilities.
According to the company, "Myself Belts is the easiest belt on
the market to fasten and makes dressing a cinch!" The belts
feature a one-handed patented closure that not only makes it easy
to keep pants up, but also allows the wearer to fasten the belt by
him or herself.
Myself Belts can benefit:
- Little ones learning to potty train
- Teens and adults with hand dexterity challenges
- Persons with cognitive delays or other special needs
- Patients in rehabilitation who are regaining control of hand
- And more!
