Filling the present day void in the rehabilitation process, offering clothing to the injured and post-surgery patients.

Founded by Penny Weber, Recovawear fills a present day void in the rehabilitation process, offering clothing to the injured and post-surgery patients, providing a solution that is also comfortable, stylish, sustainable adaptive clothing for people with movement limitations, who otherwise find it difficult to dress.

Recovawear’s founder and CEO, Penny Weber, has passionately pursued the stylish adaptive clothing market gap for three years with Recovawear, which offers designs to people recovering from injury and/or surgery. The clothes enable dressing without over-extension of injured joints, thus improving the quality of life and autonomy of patients, improving patient experience and reducing reinjury rates associated with tripping.

‍During testing of Recovawear designs, Penny became aware of a large unmet need for attractive, adaptive clothing for people with permanent movement impairment, creating the everyday where for everyone called Wearable and Co.

‍Penny has achieved much acclaim with Recovawear, for its innovative approach to the adaptive clothing market, taking the concept and business model to the Melbourne and Brisbane Pitch@Palace events, SBE Australia, the RMIT Activator and the Catapult Program. She presented in the RMIT HealthLabs to the top 100 clinicians and the chief allied health officers from private and public hospitals; she has a scholarship in the Female Entrepreneurs’ Leadership initiative through the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Recovawear was state finalist in the Premier’s Design Awards for 2019 in both Product Design and Fashion Design.
