Welcome to 505access!

W e l c o m e!

 

Wheelchair Clinic

At 505acccess, we are modifying our services to better accommodate our subscribers’ needs and those of our local community. As such, we are devoting more time to research and develop affordable, useful wheeled mobility devices and add-ons.

While the Hackerspace/Makerspace phenomenon has swept many parts of the US.  Many groups who can benefit from cooperatimg with like-minded individuals through the collaboration of ideas and sharing of experiences and resources have been excluded.  As such, we at 505access are looking to create a truly inclusive makerspace for anyone interested in accessibility for ALL.

There have been many news articles on makerspaces.  A recent one, “‘Maker Space’ Allows Kids to Innovate, Learn In The Hospital“, is giving us at 505access hope that our ideas and work toward converting our workshop into an accessible makerspace will be realized.  Not only are makerspaces great places to make things but also to explore and learn about the world around us.

We want to help you research, design and make your own custom add-ons, modifications and wheeled mobility devices.  You do the designing and making.  If you need help, we are there for you.

We are working out details with partner organizations for Use of Facilities Agreements. If you are interested in having your organization partner with us to give you free use of our facilities, please have your organization contact Alice via our Contact Us page.

Feel free to let us know how we’re doing and suggest changes you’d like to see.
