About AdaptedJames

Sales 575
On Etsy since 2017

I design and create disability aids to help others, based on my personal experience of disability and from working with disabled young people


I am James, the person behind the shop front :)

I started ‘Adapted James’ back in 2017, during a period where I was mostly housebound due to agoraphobia.

I started out with weighted blankets and adapted clothing, having previously made them for personal use for my ptsd/anxiety, insomnia, and autism related sensory overloads.

Since then, I have branched out into making sensory toys such as marble mazes and fiddle mats, and personalised disability bears- even ones using magnets to have removable disability aids!

I also now am developing better ways to use weighted lap pads as a wheelchair user, having now had experience of two very different styles of wheelchair which both need different styles of attachment.

Last year in 2019, I was put forward for two awards due to my work with Adapted James- the ‘Smile of the year’ award, and ‘Pride of Reading’ award.

It’s been a great journey with Adapted James over the years, with my work fluctuating alongside my various chronic illnesses.

I love being able to help others, so if you have any questions at all, please do get in touch!

Stay safe
