Clothing for injured service personnel

A small Staffordshire business has designed innovative new clothing for wounded soldiers thanks to Ministry of Defence funding. 

Rackety’s is a family-run specialist supplier of clothing for disabled adults and children which had no previous experience of working with the defence market.

It submitted its idea to the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) via its Enduring Challengecompetition, and successfully received £27,000 of funding.

The money was used to undertake research to develop trousers that can be worn by service personnel who have suffered serious leg injuries.
