Often times the issues associated to the
donning (putting on) and doffing (removal) of a basic T-shirt
is prominently brought up within people with mobility
impairment issues (MI).
The problem lies within the way T-shirts are
sewn, not to mention the way MIs often sacrifice comfort
and aesthetic integrity of their shirt in order to dress. We
introduce SMAller Aid. We show how embedding shape
memory alloy (SMA) springs will result in the successful
cinching of the underarm area of a T-shirt, which will
increasingly improve the process of donning and doffing
within people with mobility impairments all while
retaining aesthetic integrity.
