So this is really cool, a wheelchair accessible kayak dock located at Lake Cunnigham in Omaha, Nebraska. The lake is popular with many types of water vehicles including kayaks so recently the Parks and Recreation Department made a wheelchair accessible area.
Many people may already be familiar with this product but there may be some that are not. This is a powered handcycle that can be attached to a manual wheelchair and turn it into an electric trike.
So this is a restaurant’s solution to make their entrance wheelchair accessible. Sorry but that is not a good solution nor is it ADA compliant. Too steep, too narrow, no guards, and too dangerous.
I’m going to admit that I’ve never been a hug fan of the aluminum temporary wheelchair ramps. I think they’re not the most structurally sound and don’t look all that great. I prefer the sturdiness and look of wooden ramps with post footings or a concrete ramps. Here is a temporary ramp that was replaced by a wooden one. Constructed by Specialistic Construction, Inc of Highland, Michigan.
Where I live it’s been a very hot past few days which has me thinking of taking a dip in a swimming pool. For those who might need a lower arm prosthetic, Irish designer Robert MacCarthy has designed a swimming arm prosthetic called Oyogu.
Recently my ADA In 3D app for the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices turned 1 year old. To celebrate, the app will be on sale for only $2.99 through the end of June.

With summer already upon us, many people are already busy with their gardens. An assisted living facility isn’t the first place you might think of having a garden, but here is one. These wheelchair accessible gardens are in Sedona, AZ at Sedona Winds Assisted Living.
