The eco-friendly Lip Reader acknowledges that 80% of communication is non-verbal. The plastic inset allows others to see your facial expression and enables those who are hard of hearing to read your lips. The placement of the elastic considers the requirements for those who wear glasses and hearing aids.  20% of sales are donated to the Canadian Hearing Services. Founded in 2009, IZ Adaptive, is a line dedicated to accessible and affordable fashion for people with disabilities specializing in seated fashions for those who use wheelchairs.
