Project Accessible Environment
The term "barrier-free" or "accessible" environment is currently mentioned in a large number of legislative acts of the Russian Federation and has different interpretations depending on the source. If we generalize all the available definitions, the term will sound as follows: a barrier-free environment is called elements embedded in the world, which provide an opportunity for people with sensory, physical and intellectual disabilities to freely move and interact with its various elements.
If you look at this concept more broadly, it becomes clear that organizing an accessible environment is organizing the safest and easiest conditions for the largest number of people.
The organization of an accessible environment involves the equipment of surfaces with special handrails, ramps and special tiles, which will help to move more easily not only for the disabled, but also for children and the elderly.
A disabled person is a person who has health disorders with a persistent disorder of body functions, including damage to the musculoskeletal system, visual disabilities and hearing defects that lead to restriction of life and cause the need for his social protection.
People with low mobility are people who experience difficulties in moving independently, receiving a service, obtaining the necessary information or orienting themselves in space:
- persons with disabilities,
- people with temporary health problems,
- pregnant women,
- people with wheelchairs, etc.
