Home Retrofit Project final presentation Mathew Reynolds Under Supervision of:
Dr. Samer Adeeb
Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital Recognition of need Mobility-reduced individuals experience
significant lifestyle changes Causes:
Medical Condition


Cerebral Palsy
Examples: The accumulation of changes in an organism Design Goals To create a resource for the use of:
Occupational Therapists
that will assist in the decision-making process
to effectively and efficiently improve accessibility -
In efforts of improving or preserving the quality of
Accessibility Defined as the right or opportunity
of reaching or using. Address physical and psychological accessibility "I don't want to go to Bill's,
there're no railings." "That mall doesn't
have ramps." "Can I go in there?" "Am I welcome in this place?" Existing Solutions Applicable Standards:
National Building Code of Canada (NBCC)
Alberta Building Code (ABC)
Alberta Barrier Free Design Guide (ABFD)
O86 - Wood Design Manual
S16 - Metal Design Manual
Some Examples of Guidelines: ABFD ABFD ABFD ABFD ABFD Accessibility Modes Space Accessibility Walker/Wheelchair Accessibility Wheelchair Accessibility Quadriplegic Accessibility Cane/Walker Accessibility Mobility Intensity of Renovation Rated (X/5) 1 0 2 3 4 Base design on degrees of mobility Design Two Perspectives Accessibility Areas Kitchens Bathrooms Front Entrance Vertical Circulation Case Study Case Study - Cane / Walker Case Study - Wheelchair Intensity Split-level home -
Very hard to maintain vertical
circulation Client may want to
consider moving, as

Set A Problem
Set B Problem
Set C John Doe is implementing Solutions: A1,B2,B3 giving average
"Mobility Rating" of: 3.6 Cane / Space

Patients' Accessibility requirements can be
plotted vs. time for a clear analysis of
patient progress and trend-wise advice Product is adaptable, and has the capability
to fix misleading benchmark values based
on patients' need Questions ? Quantitative
Accessibility Use a control area using our 1.5m diameter
barrier free circle - Place on Drawing of Room Subtract the area blocked by impeding
objects. Accessibility = ratio of impeded circle
to to the control circle
1 2 3 17% Accessibility
Improvement 17% Accessibility
