When I launched Trend-Able almost 3 years ago, adaptive fashion and products for people with disabilities were just starting to become a thing. Since most of the “adaptive products” on the market still seem to be geared for people recovering from surgeries and/or the home bound elderly (as opposed to stylish active people like us),…
All AFO/orthotic wearers know how difficult it can be to find functional shoes for AFOs, and if you want style, then it can seem almost impossible. I can’t tell you how many hours I have spent trying to find shoes that fit my AFO’s that actually look stylish.
As the Coronavirus continues to spread & most of us are stuck home doing our part by social distancing and trying our best to stay positive and sane, you may, like me, be feeling powerless and wishing you could do more to help.
If there’s anything I’ve learned from having a progressive chronic condition and disabilities, it’s that focusing on the things we can’t control is pointless and downright depressing. We will get through this together by staying positive and focusing on the things we can do right now for ourselves and each other.
If you’re a makeup & skincare junkie, than you’ve probably heard of the brand Beautycounter.

As a person living with disabilities due to CMT Disorder, (read more about me here) the gifts I’ve curated below are ones that I want (hopefully my family reads my blogs😂) and that I would be blown away to receive. Although some of the items may have a higher price tag than usual, their reported impact on some (real) reviewers lives has been life-changing. And, ‘‘tis the season to splurge, anyway, right?
I received two pairs of Revere Shoes at no charge & will get a small commission should you decide to use the links provided in this post. I created Trend-ABLE to help empower orthosis wearers & others with invisible disabilities to look & feel their best. All opinions are always my own.
Hello my name is Lainie and I have brain fog. Brain fog by dictionary definition is described as: “a usually temporary state of diminished mental capacity marked by an inability to concentrate or to think or reason clearly.”

Hi, my name is Cori. I am 19 years old and have a movement disorder that affects my legs, making walking difficult at times. Anyone who has spent more than a day using conventional crutches realizes they are a pain, in every definition of the word. Last year however, I discovered a pair of crutches called smartCRUTCH™- definitely a game changer!
