Mapping accessible toilets and parking spaces for wheelchair users
Most resources about businesses have little to no information about how accessible they are. Do they have multiple handicap parking spaces? How many accessible bathroom stalls? Are there ramps? Removable seating? All these questions and more could be reported and mapped via crowdsourcing and encouraged business participation.
Developed by Danish medical services company Coloplast, the WheelMate app provides a crowdsourced map of wheelchair-accessible toilets and parking spaces. Users can add their own, comment on and rate facilities, and create printable lists of locations at the press of a button.
