The provision of clothing and special textiles for disabled and elderly people must be improved. The easytex database provides a central source of information in this area. Manufacturers/suppliers will be made aware of their potential market, and carers and individuals will increase their awareness of what products and services are currently available to them. The web based database will offer direct links to other web pages, enabling communication to main national care organisations in Europe and their local resources.
