Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
For individuals in wheelchairs, common clothing items are not always the most ideal. The IZ Collection features a line of fashionable and functional clothing for these individuals, each piece carefully crafted to make those in wheelchairs feel and look amazing. The designers have completely redesigned some favorite wardrobe essentials, including shorts, tops, jeans, coats, and much more. According to their website, "There's more than meets the eye, with unique and discreet functionality details, like wrap waist jeans, open-snap back tees, and easy zip-back jackets." IZ clothes are not only easier to get into, but the designers also consider health aspects such as skin integrity.
The company aims to make the world a more accessible place, not only through adaptive clothing, but by providing awareness and funds to remove barriers in the environment. 10% of sales goes toward accessibility initiatives, through their program Access10.
The IZ Collection features a variety of fashionable clothing items for both men and women. To browse the collection or to learn more, visit IZCollection.Com.
