Creating "Healthwear" for People with Medical Conditions Requires Intense Collaboration
Getting dressed is a daily hurdle for individuals with certain diseases and disabilities. But designers and apparel companies are launching projects to change that. Over 1 billion people, or about 15 percent of the world's population, experience some form of disability, according to the World Bank. That creates an opportunity for organizations to develop "healthwear" to address the unique clothing needs for these individuals.
