Clip Knix Help Alleviate The Stress Of Putting On Underwear

Our two babies were both born prematurely, due to preeclampsia

What I didn’t immediately know was that the second bout of preeclampsia would have a long lasting impact on my future health.

On the eve of our second baby’s naming ceremony, just seven days after her birth, I developed a serious headache that paracetamol could not shift.  Later that night, a sharp pain woke me from my sleep and I in turn woke my husband for help.  It was then that I had a stroke, followed by a serious bleed on the brain.

We arrived at St Thomas’s Hospital, in central London, to discover that there was no neuro-surgeon on duty because it was the weekend.   I was critically ill and while the hospital staff were conducting a CT scan, my heart stopped ..  My family was informed that I had little chance of survival and even if I did manage to survive, it was likely that I would be disabled for life.

Luckily for me, I was later moved to the Atkinson Morley Hospital near Wimbledon, which had become one of the most advanced brain surgery centres in the world, and I did survive!

I eventually started a rehabilitation process, which I found to be very difficult and strenuous. However, after six hard months I was talking, walking and using my right hand which enabled me to return to family life with limited mobility and motivated me to qualify as a Prince2 Practitioner.

Clip Knix Benefit Of Those, Who Like Me, Live With Limited Mobility

Like many stroke victims, I went on to experience a further serious health issue when I was diagnosed with end stage kidney failure in 2007.

Once again, grace of God was shining upon me as I managed to have a successful transplant in 2011 and used my past experiences to recover, continuing to live as full a life as possible and to bring Clip Knix to market for the benefit of those, who like me, live with limited mobility.

To me it is not just a business enterprise, it is my passion for wanting to help others as I have experienced the same in life.

My aim to see many people live independent lives as much as possible and positively.

The consequential application that arose from the product, such as camping, hiking, bedroom antics was not primarily why it was initiated but initial reason was to help people with limited mobility.

In cancer patients, when mobility is limited, Clip Knix are beneficial in alleviating the stress of putting on underwear.

They take away the need for bending, stretching, and standing on one leg. They are especially useful as you can wear them sitting, lying, and standing.

Our cleverly designed underwear solution enables the wearer to clip underwear on and off at one, two or three front-fastening locations with the choice of buttons or hooks to suit a wide range of needs. Please check out our website -www.clip-knix.biz
