About our history
It all started with an idea…
We are a family business that started with a desire and an idea.
For a long time I worked caring for the elderly at home, in nursing homes and
That work allowed me to feel and know all the sadness and sensations experienced
at this stage of life, trying to soften them up with love, dedication and empathy.
One of my jobs was with an old lady who was admitted to a nursing home, I accompanied her on
weekends,… it was an old residence with long corridors, she had Alzheimer’s
he answered with his smile and his look, he walked her in his wheelchair and tried to protect her
from the cold with the typical blanket on his legs,…it was difficult, the blanket moved, left uncovered
the back of the legs and I had to continually reposition it.
I wanted to solve that problem and have better protection against the cold and rain… and so the idea of this design was born.
I developed a garment that corrected these problems and was easy to wear not only for caregivers but also for those with some mobility. It was comfortable and also protected the back of the legs and allowed freedom of movement.
I made several items of clothing and distributed them to several people who use wheelchairs for their trips, not only elderly people but also people of any age: adults, young people, children,… who for various reasons have to use the wheelchair for their mobility; people with different degrees of dependency and affectation, who offered to validate them. They used them for several days and gave me the successes and failures they saw in the design and use. Once they were corrected, the models I presented came out.
I designed several models for different situations: to be at home, to go out in spring days, to go out in cold days, in rainy days, models with hoods and shorter models, with different fabrics that protect from the cold and rain and that are lightweight,
…models that could be used by all people who are forced to use a wheelchair in their daily lives.
It has already gone from being a wish and an idea to being a reality, a reality that is patented and registered and that has been very well received and accepted by all the people who have used it, praising its advantages and features, its comfort and ease of use.
