Patient makes cape for wheelchair users

About the solution

Since it rains a lot in Belgium, where the inventor lives, she had to find a solution to protect herself.

Because she was unhappy with the solutions offered on the market, and as she is a talented seamstress, Valerie made a protective cape in measure in a waterproof cloth. The cape is easy to produce, and can fold or unfold depending on the weather.

A drawing with the cape’s measurements can be found attached.

About the author

Valerie Dardenne, from Belgium, suffers from a paralyzing disc herniation since 2007, and was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, in 2012, a genetic disease that causes many dislocations, subluxations and sprains. Valerie moves in an electric wheelchair, whatever the weather. So she developed a cape to protect her from the rain, in 2016.
