HOME ADAPTATION FOR DISABLED
Home adaptation for the disabled means make home comfortable for the disable person. Home adaption also means the interior designing of home according to the disable person.
In home there are many barriers for disabled like doors, windows, beds, toilets, bathtubs, etc. These all accessories in home can create problem for the disables in their activities. Many Coloradans with disabilities depend on a wheelchair. Accessibility describes a site, building, facility or portion thereof that can be approached, entered and used by physically disabled people. Adaptability describes the flexibility of certain building elements to be modified to accommodate the needs of people with disabilities. A properly constructed ramp is essential for anyone in a wheelchair to use a building. When designed correctly, an accessible kitchen can be easily used by everyone in the household.
Wheelchair Maneuvering Space
The average dimensions of a standard adult manual wheelchair (occupied) are length: 46 to 50 inches including allowance for projection of feet to overhang, width: 23 to 32 inches allowing for hands and elbows, seat depth: 16 inches, seat height: 19-20 inches, and arm height: 29-30 inches from floor. The sports wheelchair, which has cambered wheels, has a lower seat and is wider, but the overhead reach is not as high as the standard model. The average distance needed for an adult in a wheelchair to make a complete circle is 60 inches of clear floor space. Minimum clear width for a wheelchair is 36 inches for a hall and 32 inches for a door. Minimum clear space for a T-shaped turn of 180 degrees is 36 inches in all directions. The minimum passage width for one wheelchair and one ambulatory person is 48 inches. The average reaching distance of a seated adult: side reach maximum height overhead is 54 inches and the low side reach is 9 inches above the floor. This does not include reaching over an obstacle such as a counter. The maximum forward reach is 48 inches above the floor, also not over an obstacle.
A properly constructed ramp is essential for anyone in a wheelchair to use a building. A ramp can replace stairs or be part of an accessible route to a building’s entrance. There should be at least one accessible route from a public street, sidewalk or parking space to an accessible entrance, as well as routes from adjacent buildings.
Ramps are required any time there is an elevation in the grade of the land that wheelchairs must maneuver. The maximum slope of any ramp is 1:12. This ratio means that for every inch of height in grade change, 12 inches of ramp length is required The ramp length (or run) should not exceed 30 feet without landings, nor should the ramp rise more than 30 inches. The minimum width of a ramp is 36 inches. Because of inclement weather (snow, ice, wind, etc.), some states have developed a second standard for exterior ramps and walkways.
