Standards for accessible fitness equipment.
Abstract: Presenter talks about how, in 2011, there weren’t any universal design (UD) guidelines to follow for making fitness equipment accessible to individuals with a disability, and how the Department of Justice (DOJ) is drafting minimum requirements and criteria for public fitness centers and accessible equipment. He demonstrates accessible fitness equipment that can be used by all people and makes suggestions about ways other equipment can be made more readily available for users with a disability to access. An update from 2013 is added at the end of the video. Run time: 2 minutes 50 seconds.
