About us


We provide long-term accessibility solutions for anyone with mobility concerns.

Whether you’re creating a safe environment for aging parents, a special needs child, or anyone who uses a wheelchair, we help access the world.


We have served clients throughout the United States and Canada in fields as diverse as Assisted Living facilities, Adult Day Care programs, and individuals seeking to age in place. We’ve worked with Special Education directors, architects, and contractors to help them design optimum special needs restrooms and changing facilities.

We’re proud of the relationships we’ve developed with healthcare professionals, including medical facility planners, nurses, occupational and physical therapists, and rehab specialists, not to mention special needs trust and life planners, as well as safety and risk managers.
