This app is a true customer services revolution

The free app allows you to request visits to participating venues, indicating the areas you need customer service to have awareness of and the specific assistance you require.

Venues are notified of the visit request and receive an overview of your condition and top tips to aid their interaction with you.

If you can use this app because you live in the UK, or you have experience in using it, please let us know in the comments. Imagine how wonderful it could be doing your holiday shopping and not to worry about the stores you want to go to!

To the Beach

ACCESS TRAX

We all love the beach! It is not a given though for everyone to go to the beach. Wheels and sand, it is not a great match, actually, not at all. Check this out: Access Trax, invented by Kelly and her team in San Diego, California can make your beach visit happen!

These portable, lightweight Access Trax are shipped worldwide and are easy to take along in your car. What a great gift it would be for wheelchair users around the world if beach hotels and resorts, restaurants and beach clubs would have their set ready to use!

Transfer SLING

LIFT YOUR SPIRIT

ADAPTS Portable transfer sling

This handy pack is a musthave for all travelers. The ADAPTS, a multi purpose transfer sling is one of the greatest inventions for travelers with a disability.

Creator Robin Wearley, a former flight attendant, says “There is no affordable assistive device available in the marketplace today that carries wheelchair users or the injured down a narrow aisle to emergency exits during an airplane evacuation, according to ADAPTS LLC research…until now.”

Not only in emergency situations the ADAPTS is a great solution; it is useful in any transfer situation. Going on a boat, using a pool or a visit to the dentist.

Take a Shower

Going on a trip – surviving airports and airplanes, long taxi rides – you probably will want to shower in the hotel you booked.

What if the bathroom is not too accessible, even though you thought it would be?

Rick Goldstein from Tucson, Arizona did not want to wait until all hotels would have accessible bathrooms and created a portable, foldable shower chair, the Go Anywhere Chair.
