IZ Adaptive launches the Game Changer Pant, a seamless-back pant designed to help minimize and prevent the possible causes of pressure sores from wheelchair use.
“The first pant in the collection looks like a classic jean in the front but the back has revolutionary IZ Seamless Technology. This design is free of seams or pockets that a person would normally be sitting on, that can result in pressure sores.”
— Izzy Camilleri, founder of Canada-based IZ Adaptive
The Game Changer Pant in blue and black denim, chinos, and sweatpants are available by visiting IZ Adaptive and ship internationally. IZ Adaptive will also launch Game Changer leggings and underwear and plan to develop a Game Changer line for children.
Three percent of US sales will be donated to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, and 3% of Canadian and international sales of the Game Changer collection will benefit the Rick Hansen Foundation, according to the company in a media release.
“The innovation and design of IZ Adaptive’s new Game Changer Pant demonstrates that fashion can be adaptive and accessible for all. We are grateful to partner with organizations like IZ Adaptive, whose mission is to support the needs and well-being of the paralysis community, and who continue to revolutionize the way we look at accessibility.”
— Aimee Hunnewell, Chief Development Officer, the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation
“The Rick Hansen Foundation is extremely grateful to IZ Adaptive for donating a percentage of their new adaptive Game Changer Pant sales to support our Foundation and liberate the potential of Canadians with disabilities. Izzy Camilleri’s commitment to accessible, adaptive clothing is an inspiration and a reminder that we can all be difference makers.”
— Doramy Ehling, CEO, Rick Hansen Foundation
The patent for the Game Changer Pant is currently pending.
