Bringing the cool back into healthcare

Well Cool Clothing is a new approach to how we dress in hospital, when we have health care needs at home or for those with reduced mobility.  The brainchild of Kirsty Glynn, after her own son spent time in hospital, Well Cool Clothing offers Hospital PJ’s and Adaptive Loungewear designed to promote independence and dignity and make the job of the carer easier.

Traditional hospital gowns and clothing worn in healthcare settings offer little in the way of dignity, or flexibility and can often make administering treatment or help difficult, especially for those caring for family members at home.  For those living with long-term medical conditions, mobility and even the simplest of tasks such as doing up a button or removing a top can be a challenge.  Kirstie’s adaptive clothing range is able to accommodate simple medical procedures such as taking blood and changing an IV tube.

With a children’s range now selling in Great Ormond Street Hospital, Kirsty is hoping her time as an inc. entrepreneur will provide her with the skills and vision to launch her adult range and change the world of healthcare wear. With an ageing population and increasing reliance on family carers we’ll also be working with Kirsty to look at ways Well Cool Clothing can support our work around enabling independence and inclusivity for our older customers.

Well Cool Clothing is now a couple of months into the inc. programme, and Kirsty is looking forward to sharing her journey with her fellow entrepreneurs.

“inc. - what a great opportunity! Only two months in and the inc. programme has surpassed my expectations.  As a start-up, having this level of support from such a professional, yet warm organisation is really helping me realise that anything is possible.”
