Riding High: Course makes biking accessible to children with disabilities (July 24, 2013)

See on Scoop.itUniversal design

RT @UWMadison: We love this @UWMadEducation effort to make #biking accessible to children with #disabilities: http://t.co/GT5yZaDdUQ #Madis…

Jane Sleeth‘s insight:

Over time designs such as this will be seen by the public to not just make a difference in terms of accommodation for disability but will be seen as a universal improvment in design to the benefit of all. I have noted an increase in the number of these bikes being used by people of all ages with physical disabilities. This type of technology coupled with universal designed pathways will allow the disabled to also maintain fitness levels and health.  JE Sleeth OPC Inc
