Progressive illnesses such as MS, MD, MND and others
A large proportion of our customers have illnesses such as Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Duchenne MD and Spinal Muscular Atrophy to name but a few, and as wheelchair users they need exactly the same cut and styling as our customers with an SCI. But often people with progressive illnesses do not have the manual dexterity that someone with a low SCI might have, and also they can feel the cold in their legs and feet, or the discomfort if their trousers to do not fit properly, so we are always pleased when they find that the cut and styling of our garments gives them more comfort and makes them feel smart.
We have a particular insight into some of the needs of people with this kind of illness, as a dear friend of the company, who designed our first efficient website, has MS as a result of his military service around the world and in the Falklands War. He has advised us and tested our garments, and as a Staff Sergeant in the Royal Engineers you may be assured that he did not spare us if he felt that there was any feature missing, or not suited to, the needs of someone with MS!
