It’s a Pair with EZ-ACCESSORIES®

For individuals with limited mobility, life doesn’t slow down! Keeping on the move is an essential way to maintain independence, stay fit and improve your overall health. However, transportation can be difficult if you have no place to store vital equipment.  If your access gear is slowing you down, EZ-ACCESS has got you covered with our line of EZ-ACCESSORIES. Together, we can find the perfect pair!

Wheelchair

If you are a wheelchair user, EZ-ACCESS has a wide variety of options to keep your personal belongings safe. You can be sure to find the perfect product to fit your needs. For shopping, the Wheelchair Back is a heavy-duty solution and can be easily attached to the back of the wheelchair with adjustable straps, giving you the freedom you need to keep moving. If you need a more lightweight option, the Wheelchair Underneath Carrier can be attached underneath your chair to hold papers, books or magazines. To get the best of both worlds, our Wheelchair Pack provides a large, durable pack with deep pockets behind the wheelchair and includes outside mesh pockets. These pockets keeps your necessary items, such as a phone or tablet, handy and still provides liberal room for storage.

Scooter

Scooters and power chairs provide needed assistance for individuals with limited mobility, however, they can be inadequate when it comes to storage. To keep important items close, the Scooter & Power Chair Pack is easy to install over the back of the seat for a comfortable and secure fit. If you need even closer coverage, the Scooter Arm Tote keeps your personal belongs safely within reach.

Walker

Although baskets can be handy for storing larger items in your walker, it can be less than reliable for smaller items such as phones or keys. To add more privacy and security, EZ-ACCESS recommends the Walker Basket Liner. Not only does it come with two expandable pouches to hold larger items like beverage containers, but it also includes a zippered pocket for smaller or more personal objects. If your needs extend past a typical basket, the Walker Carryon is the functional answer to your traveling problems. Available in two styles, including a side or front mount, this spacious storage container has several individual pockets in a variety of sizes so you can easily access your belongings.

Crutches

Although crutches provide convenient assistance for a wide variety of conditions, they can also be one of the most difficult items to maneuver. Since your hands are consistently at work, carrying essential items becomes extremely difficult. For a convenient and easy solution, the Universal Crutch Pouch can be fitted to a cane or crutch to provide you with the storage you need.

Although staying on the move can come with potential obstacles for people affected by limited mobility, securing these essential products can ensure you have the peace of mind needed to stay safe no matter where life takes you.

Redefine Accessibility to Give All Students Equal Ground

The time a student spends in school is not just limited to mathematical equations and scientific theories. It is a vital building block in developing the person that they will eventually become. Lifelong friendships are formed, aspirations are born and dreams are created. For students with limited mobility, however, this crucial period of development can become marred by access restrictions. Not only does this hamper potential but it can signify possible isolation. That’s why EZ-ACCESS is committed to providing the tools to help schools create a welcoming and functional environment for all students. By incorporating our educational accessibility solutions, institutions can ensure that each child has the ability to conquer the world.

To take access to a new level, it is crucial to view mobility solutions as more than just a set of aluminum parts. At EZ-ACCESS, they are the gateway to providing inclusion so that every adult and child can be a star. As a family-owned company since 1984, our culture is unfaltering in its dedication to achieving this important goal. Contact our team today to find out why we remain the leader in creating advances in access solutions, and how we can help you reach the next level.

What Makes HAULWAY The Safest External Vehicle Lift on the Market

What Makes HAULWAY The Safest Lift On the Market

With hundreds of dollars of equipment and your lifeline to mobility exposed to the world, transporting your power chair can raise concern. Ease it with HAULWAY lift systems. A fully boxed base frame, weight-bearing capacities up to 325 pounds, and top-of-line protection systems create a chair lift as secure as it is streamlined. Consider some of the features that make HAULWAY the safe option in mobility chair transport:

  • It conquers bumps in the road: Long gravel roads or main streets riddled with potholes pose just as minimal concern as if navigating your lift on smooth pavement. An integrated suspension system absorbs impact and helps your chair reorient around it.
  • Inclines aren’t an issue: Whether tackling a steep hill in your neighborhood or a steady climb up mountainous landscapes, put the fear of your mobility chair dislodging to rest. With an automatic tilt function, a HAULWAY lift will position your mobility device for maximum leverage, adjusting to changes in elevation swiftly and smoothly.
  • Restraints aren’t on your shoulders: Not only do straps and ropes tangle and create hassle, they also come with a high risk of error. An improper knot, a hook that breaks mid-ride, or a frayed strap that snaps can create an expensive problem in a matter of seconds. HAULWAY’s mechanical hold-down arm eliminates the time and focus that manual restraints demand, snugly keeping your mobility chair locked in place. Auto-retractable ratchet tie-downs also work to firmly secure your mobility chair to the lift.
  • It takes care of itself: Bumping into your lift when you round the corner can be a painful shock. The automatic fold feature prevents this pain, rising up and out of range when not in use.

Questions? Our team at EZ-ACCESS can answer them to help you select the power chair lift that suits your needs and lifestyle. Give us a call today!

Make your Business more Accessible with a Modular Access System

At E-Z ACCESS®, we care about people getting where they need to go by using a portable ramp, Pathway® Modular System or Passport™ Vertical Platform Lift.  We also care about you, a business owner, having mobility options for your business.  Today, E-Z ACCESS® will go over some elements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and a commercial Titan Modular Access System that may make all the difference with your storefront.
business-accessible-graphic
 
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits the exclusion of people with disabilities from everyday activities.  Businesses now have requirements they have to meet with the ADA and compliance for new businesses isn’t difficult.  The ADA understands that many small businesses cannot afford to make major changes to their businesses. The ADA has come up with requirements for existing facilities and new buildings.
Having multiple accessible entrances to your storefront is very important to invite people with or without disabilities to your store.  Having only one option to get to your business can limit people
who use wheelchairs, walkers or canes.
Your business can achieve multiple entrances by using a Titan Modular Access System. Our Titan Modular Access System is an all-aluminum, universal product that is easy to install, reconfigure and relocate to accommodate virtually any layout or lot configuration.  Handrails are integrated with every ramp and non-skid surfaces are also included. Titan Modular Access Systems can be very simple to very detailed and you can keep adding to them as needed with a custom design.  No two storefronts are the same and that’s where E-Z ACCESS® comes in to help.
Titan Modular Access Systems meet all requirements with the ADA, IBC, OSHA and local build code guidelines. The Titan Modular Access System has little maintenance for upkeep, individual serial numbers for easy tracking and inventory and an industry leading three year warranty for wear and durability.
EZ-ACCESS® would love to hear from you to get your business mobility ready. Learn about our other products like EZ-ACCESS® Portable Ramps or Passport™ Vertical Platform Lifts to make your business more accessible.
