Top 3 spots By Morenike Ajidagba Summer 2020 has been quite an interesting one for many of the inhabitants of the City of Edmonton. Most especially if you are the outdoorsy type and had plans for enjoying the summer. However, do not be dismayed because there are a range of activities to engage in outdoors around the city. There is hope that this summer can still be enjoyed to the fullest! As part of our research into bicycle accessibility, below we list some places that are the most accessible for bicyclists in Edmonton. The Edmonton River Valley trail systems are one of the largest areas for cycling and hiking in Edmonton as they span over a range of public parks and facilities. We explore some spots to visit along this popular biking trail. You can start off at Emily Murphy Park which is named after one of Edmontonโ€™s notable citizens…

After being paralyzed from her waist down, Gill was inspired to open the ReYu Paralysis Recovery Center in Edmonton where her goals are to change the world, enhance neuroscience recovery and end the stigma around having a disability. Gill shared her experience with navigating through Edmonton and how the Sagitta device would enhance her ease of travel in a wheelchair. She faces constant barriers such as a lack of snow removal and high curbs that make doing everyday activities such as going to the gym difficult and sometimes impossible on her own. The sagitta device would allow wheelchair users to be aware of plowed routes, closed sidewalks and other transportation barriers to better assist them in navigating through the city. Gill also emphasized the importance of the data that this…

We are a wheelchair accessibility mapping service that enables users to engage with their community without the fear of difficult terrain.

Click&Push Accessibility Inc. is a social enterprise dedicated to increasing the ease of personal mobility for all by providing technology capable of improving accessibility and creation of inclusive communities. Our main project involves launching an accessibility mapping app, called The Atlas, that combines subjective user experience information and objective exertion data. Our built environments are not designed for ambulation in a manual wheelchair and thus are physically demanding to navigate. But specifically, how demanding? Our research team, in the Rehabilitation Robotics Laboratory at the University of Alberta, has created a wearable device for manual wheelchair users (MWUs) that can be attached to their wheelchair and will measure the distance traveled by the MWU, the speed they traveled at, and the force they must input to travel; much like a FitBit for a wheelchair. We have patented this device and it is called Redliner. Data gained from Redliner can be used to…
