Abilitee Adaptive Wear Spotlight and Giveaway

Abilitee Adaptive Wear 2

Guest Blogger: Marta Elena Cortez-Neavel, Abilitee Adaptive Wear Co-Founder & Managing Director

When Dr. Julie Sanchez realized her patients were struggling to find cute clothing that fit their various medical needs, she decided to do something about it.

Two years ago, Julie came to me with an idea to create a line of fashionable, functional clothing for children with chronic illnesses and other medical needs. Julie, who I am proud to call my Co-Founder, is a wonderful doctor, mother, and friend. She has always provided the best possible care for her patients, but when she learned of the unique challenges these families face at home, she decided she could do more.

Together, we reached out to families for ideas and inspiration, and began designing adaptive clothing and accessories. In February 2016, we launched AbiliteeAdaptiveWear.com. Each item reflects a synthesis of Julie’s medical expertise, my love for fashion, and real patient feedback. Today, we can proudly say that we offer adaptive clothing that meets a wide range of needs, but doesn’t skimp on style.

Our large-size onesies are popular among special needs families, especially those with older children in diapers or wheelchairs, as they fit ages 2-14 years (or adult size small). Clothing adapted for medical accessories – such as feeding tubes, chemo ports, and ostomies – provides quick, easy access to these sites, making daily care more manageable. Sensory chew jewelry offers relief for children who fidget or chew, especially those with autism, sensory sensitivity, or ADHD. Our cute handmade accessories now include tracheostomy pads, feeding tube pads, and stylish “spill scarves,” but we are always adding more!

Our goal is to become everyone’s favorite online destination when it comes to adaptive clothing, but our vision is to open up the mainstream discourse to include individuals with disabilities and medical needs. If you have design suggestions, or want to get in touch, please send us an email or get connected on social media, Facebook ,Twitter  and Instagram.
