About VALE Designs

What is Adaptive Clothing?

Adaptive clothing is designed for those who have limited mobility and are unable to wear traditional clothing.

Special adaptive designs may be needed for people who have physical disabilities, the elderly population with reduced mobility or those with temporary limited mobility (for example, in recovery from surgery and undergoing physical rehabilitation).

VALE's innovative clothing designs are made to make daily routines easier for both users and caregivers.

What is Assisted Dressing?

Assisted Dressing clothing is designed for those individuals (users) who are unable to physically dress themselves and need assistance from others (caregivers) to get them dressed and undressed.

Typically, these are those who may have difficulty getting themselves dressed because of an inability to operate fasteners, or even loss of full range of motion needed to dress themselves, namely people using wheelchairs and people lying down in beds over extended periods of time.

VALE offers fashionable assisted dressing solutions enabling the caregivers to carry out the dressing process quickly, easily, with less need to touch and handle the user, and alleviating frustration and discomfort for both of them.

What's the difference between Assisted Dressing and Self Dressing?

Self Dressing clothing is for those who may have limited dexterity or cognition and may require some help while getting dressed, but are still able to dress themselves.

Is VALE a Danish brand?

Yes! We are a Danish brand dedicated to making people with special needs to feel equally worthy. In the About VALE section you will be able to get to know us and the 'Story behind VALE'.

Does VALE has any physical stores?

No. VALE’s concept is to sell our products only through our Online Store and through VALE’s own Agents in selected countries.

What is the quickest way to find a particular product in the Store?

You can quickly search for a specific product by typing its name in the 'Search' field in the top right-hand corner, or by using the 'Filter' option in the products page.

What makes VALE a trustful brand?

VALE believes in empowering people - including those with special needs.

VALE's designs are special developed and adapted for enabling easier and simpler dressing solutions for those who need assistance getting dressed. What was perhaps once impossible can now become more manageable and carried out with ease and comfort, while at the same time giving back the user’s self-esteem, sense of style and comfortable routines - ultimately improving their quality of life and bringing peace of mind.

Ordering

What size should I buy?

If you’re not quite sure which size is right for you, refer to our Size Guide.
If your child is between two sizes, we recommend that you select the larger size.

Can I change my order?

It is possible to change your order only if we have not packed your items yet.
Therefore, you should immediately contact our Customer Service with your change – we recommend calling us directly in these cases. However, we cannot guarantee that we can make the change if your order has already been packed and prepared for shipping.

Still, we remind you that you can always exchange your item(s) for a preferred style or return for a full refund up to 30 days after reception date, according to your preference.

Please refer to our Refund Policy for further information.

Can I cancel my order?

Unfortunately, this is not possible.
We completely get it, we change our minds too! While we wish we could, once an order is placed, we are unable to alter or cancel it at this time. We hope to have a cancellation window one day in the future.

Should the item(s) not work out, make sure to exchange for a preferred style or return for a full refund.

Please refer to our Refund Policy for further information.

Can I merge two different orders?

Unfortunately, this is not possible.
Once an order is placed, it will be automatically processed by our system and we cannot join it with another different order.

Can I order something over the phone or by email?

Unfortunately, this is not possible as payment must be made when creating an order.
However, making a purchase in our Store is perfectly safe.

Can't select size or color – is there an error on the page?

No, this is simply because that specific size or color is Sold Out.

A product is Sold Out – how do I know when it will be back in stock?

We can contact you and let you know when the product will be available for sale again in our Store.
Just contact us through our Contact Form and let us know which product and size you are interest in, and we'll send you an email when the item comes back in stock.
