The Power of Clothes
Patients deserve to dress well and keep their dignity
Inspired by experience, designed by experts
INGA Wellbeing empowers patients
CLICK ON CLOTHES TO BUY:
"INGA Wellbeing clothing enables medical staff to examine, and even treat, patients easily and without having to fully undress them, both maintaining patient dignity and comfort and saving valuable nursing time. These innovative, yet normal looking, garments should help patients to regain their independence more quickly as they are empowered to dress themselves, move about and socialise, which in turn should promote a speedier recovery.”
"There is a great need for ways to help patients to be seen and treated as people, not as patients. I think that INGA would go a long way to helping empower patients and their loved ones to retain their sense of femininity and individuality."
"The Mimi Ullens Foundation and INGA Wellbeing share the same aims: to help patients preserve their self-esteem, their courage and their strength. The INGA range of clothing is elegant, attractive and very practical and will improve patients’ quality of life during treatment.”
"This is innnnnncredible!"

"What a great idea!"
"What a cool concept! Have changed my style/clothes to cater to my nerve damage. Truly appreciate what u are doing!"
"I LOVE this! Clothing and garments designed for people with chronic illnesses and conditions designed to allow them to feel "dressed" but allow their medical treatments to continue unimpeded 🙂 Great idea!"

We want to reduce the stigma and stress of ill health. We believe in the importance of empowering patients and making medical treatment less intimidating and believe our clothing solutions help with this.
In addition, we are committed to supporting hospitals in their efforts to improve and ‘humanise’ the patient experience, and will contribute to projects such as the refurbishment of waiting areas and the creation of wellness centres etc.
Our first selected project is an outdoor playground at Belgium’s only dedicated children’s hospital HUDERF in Brussels. Specialist equipment will enable in-patients and children with reduced mobility to play with their able-bodied siblings and will provide many different types of sensory experiences to break the boredom of long hospital stays. It will be a place of laughter and fun, where special memories can be made and ‘normal’ childhood moments enjoyed.
