How independently can an individual with disabilities use the equipment?
Roughly one in four adults in the United States is living with some type of disability. Traditional strength training equipment is tough to use independently, making it difficult for fitness centres to serve those with disabilities. Purchasing accessible equipment allows an institution to serve a wider client base in a more appropriate way.
Utilising the 7 Principles of Universal Design, here is a checklist to ensure the strength training equipment you purchase is accessible to all.
