Eddie Redmayne dedicates his Oscar win to the sufferers of Motor Neurone Disease

eddie-oscarAs a fellow Brit we are very proud of Eddie Redmayne for winning the Best Male Actor award last night at the Oscars for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in the film The Theory of Everything who suffers from Motor Neurone Disease.    Eddie dedicated his award to “all the people around the world battling” motor neurone disease which brought a tear to our eye.

Here at Adaptawear we recognise how sufferers from Motor Neurone Disease (MND) struggle with everyday tasks which get increasingly difficult as the condition progresses.  If you need advise or support on how to handle MND do take a look at their website.

Also if you or a family member are suffering from MND; our range of discreetly adapted clothes offer support to both wearers and carers by providing both independent and assisted dressing.  To take a look at our range of ladies and men’s daywear and nightwear please visit
