World Stroke Day 2013: October 29th

1 in 6 people worldwide will have a stroke in their lifetime and have to adapt to a change in lifestyle. This may mean sourcing mobility aids and clothing to enable them to life independently, or with more severe strokes, relying on family or professional carers to help with daily living.

Over the years Adaptawear has gained a reputation for selling adaptive clothing that makes dressing easier, quicker and more dignified for stroke sufferers.
