Online forums provide a safe and fun platform for people across the world to come together and share interests and experiences. These virtual clubs allow members to bond with a group of friends who are accessible at any time of the day, from anywhere in the world. Communities like these are especially important for people with disabilities and chronic illnesses. When health problems or mobility limit access to the local community, members can connect with a network of understanding, caring, and supportive online friends.
Exercise is essential to the overall wellbeing of people from all walks of life and in all life stages. Stretching, cardio, resistance training, and sports each assist in the development and continual improvement of muscle tone, coordination, and day-to-day energy levels. Wheelchair users are no exception to this rule and many experience great benefits to introducing workouts to their daily lives.
Everyday, technology evolves in new and exciting ways to assist people in their everyday lives. For people with disabilities, accessibility is not only highly necessarily, but often extremely frustrating to find. Not only has technology made phone apps readily available, but also many developers are using them to create services to assist people with disabilities. Whether you’re searching for assistance with communication, looking for an accessible parking space, or wanting to hire a care team - there’s an app for that!
