Accessibility recommendations :
The disabled / differently- abled population in India are at a big loss as public facilities like playgrounds, cinema halls, government buildings, train stations, washrooms, footpaths etc. are not designed keeping in mind wheelchair accessibility. Similarly these public buildings are not equipped to help the hearing impaired and visually impaired get around as independently as possible.
Many a time, certain home adaptations or modifications need to be implemented to support or enhance the functioning of the patient eg. Grab bars and anti-slip flooring in the bathroom, a workdesk under which the wheelchair is able to slide in and a bed with bedrails installed to improve patient’s bed mobility and transfers.
We at TheraCure, will assist with practical solutions with regards to public and residential space designing whether it’s a new upcoming space or an existing one.
