Any ideas on how to adapt a pair of man's sweatpants for a person with MS confined to a wheelchair. They need to be opened at the back.

I volunteer at a chronic care facility. They simply open the back seam to the crotch and sew pieces of twill tape (about 15") to tie at the waist. It is good to re-enforce the crotch point with a piece of twill tape, it tends to tear in the heavy duty washing machines.
