Moms, I know, you’ve been searching for cute clothes but none of them cater to your needs.
Occasionally we find pediatric products that we love and this is one of them. Abilitee Adaptive Wear creates some really cute shirts to help with ostomies/feeding tube access.
Abilitee Adaptive Wear was created as a solution to the frustration expressed by many of Julie’s patients and their families surrounding their various medical needs. As a pediatric surgeon, Julie Sanchez, MD constantly hears from parents how hard it is to comfortably dress their children, especially when their child is disabled, or when parents need to access diapers, feeding tubes, catheters, ostomies, or ports throughout the day.
In an effort to expand her care for these families beyond the hospital, Julie decided to create a line of adaptive clothing and accessories directly inspired by her patients. Julie went to her friend, Elena, a pre-medical student with an eye for design. Together, Julie & Elena founded Abilitee Adaptive Wear.
