“Optivus is the first streetwear-inspired and adapted clothing entirely dedicated to people with physical disabilities.”
Moulded with its versatility and commitment to give comfort, functionality, affordability and yet would uplift the user’s spirit. It is inspired to make life easier and dressing more accessible to the user and the people who support them – making dressing fun and less stressful, creating a memory.
Optivus is conceived out of a mother’s struggles to dress her disabled child. Her son Liam was diagnosed with Type 1 glutaric aciduria, a rare metabolic condition that doesn’t allow him to synthesise protein and results in brain damage.
Diagnosed at 10 months, he went from a healthy baby to a severely disabled infant. Her child’s stiff limbs and spasms turned what would typically be a 10-minute dressing routine into a marathon that could take up to an hour to complete.
Optivus is fuelled by its goal to make users valued, empowering self-esteem and self-acceptance by rendering a treasured experience. The product collection – clothing, shoes, and accessories – are revolutionised with quality, long-lasting materials that are trendy and stylish.
Optivus uses packaging that is useful to our daily living, giving a solution to a necessity and limiting plastic use. It values humanity and respects nature.
Optivus will always be inspired by its one promise…to optimise!
