As a nurse I have extensive clinical expertise and am confident in problem solving to provide that individual fit. My knowledge of body mechanics and a wide range of health issues and mobility Issues. I am confident with practical ideas to maintain safety of medical devices such as feeding tubes, ostomy or vascular access devices, This background helps me to provide you with a caring and sensitive approach whilst providing clothing adaptations to meet your needs.
I am a grandmother of a child with cerebral palsy- wheelie, AFOs, heat modulation issues and PEG fed; and a child with autism and the many individual sensory challenges this brings to dressing! I have experience with the elderly reliant on mobility aids and dressing limitations from arthritis. I have personal challenges with extensive disfiguring scarring and other medical issues impacting on my own clothing choices.
Please contact me to discuss your needs and requirements so we can tackle the design and development of accessible clothing and accessories for you to be able to dress your best.
