A new Australian based website has just started up this week featuring adaptive clothing and footwear from suppliers in Australia and across the globe.
The adaptive clothing website – EveryHuman – http://www.everyhuman.com.au – features a curated collection of adaptive streetwear, formal-wear, intimates, shoes, accessories and more. Each piece is designed by people with lived experience and features discreet adaptations such as magnetic closures, one-handed zippers on shoes, seated wear and AFO friendly shoes.
A first is that they have a plan to provide a place for adaptive clothing, footwear and adaptive wear suppliers to sell their products in the one convenient space which hasn’t been done before. They have 8 suppliers on there currently and lots more are to come.
Another benefit is if you are on the NDIS and are self-managing or have a plan manager, adaptive clothing can be claimed under “Low cost assistive technology”.
There is a 10% discount on offer currently so check it out.

You might also be interested in seeing what else is out there in the adaptive clothing space as there are designers now putting out stylish and fashionable clothing that is also functional. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. The topic is generating a lot of interest amongst mainstream designers and we have found some really interesting articles about the current state of play for adaptive clothing including “The $400 billion adaptive clothing opportunity”. Check out more articles here in the SCIA Resource Hub.

Style is so important. I was reading an article ages ago about a stylist who helps people with disabilities. It was really interesting to read about it: https://cur8able.com/
