There is none in this world who is totally able and none who is totally disabled. Disability is impairment of structure of function imposed by disease, accidents or inheritance. Functional garments are important for disabled as they reduce dependence on others for dressing and undressing. The study was conducted on 40 spastic respondents, selected through purposive sampling technique. It was found that most of the respondents faced problems in donning, doffing and manipulating fasteners. Hence in designing garments for these persons focus was given on type of fasteners used, comfort, factors that provide ease in donning and doffing, ease of care and cost of garment.
