These days, everything is within reach. Information is at the tip of our fingers, and all you need to do is hop in your car to go to the grocery store.

Are there adapted solutions, capable of making these areas of difficult access more accessible?

There are many existing solutions for better inclusion of people with reduced mobility. All you need to do is build awareness of universal accessibility and of the importance of implanting these tools in shops, public places, houses, and apartments.


The stairlift, or man lift, is a simple solution to make stairs more accessible to people with reduced mobility. As it helps to prevent falls, this chair is appreciated by the elderly population.
