The Wet Room, Farmington Hills

Wet rooms are waterproof bathrooms where there are no shower trays to step into or and obstacles can be kept to a minimum. Having everything ‘level-access’ and immediately accessible is the ultimate in hassle-free bathing. Wheelchair users won’t have to worry about getting in and out of a shower or bath. Simply wheel a bathing chair to the desired position, have a wash, get dried and get on with the rest of your day!

Caring for Tor- An intimate look at the life of a young caregiver

Stephane Alexis, 24, has put his own goals and aspirations on hold to help his parents care for his younger brother Torence, who has cerebral palsy. Young caregivers are an often-overlooked population - too tired from the day-to-day to advocate for more resources and support.

As a family with a loved one with disabilities, we like to bring awareness to the disability community and their caregivers.

This short, 8 minute documentary is raw, unfiltered reality of the life of Tor and his caregivers.

Recently, young caregivers are being recognized for their roles as caregivers in their families.

Let us know what you think below.

Accessibility & Technology: Microsoft Xbox Adaptive Controllers

Technology is working alongside Accessibility more than ever.

Microsoft is coming out with adaptive Xbox controllers and we are all excited!

Watch the video bellow to see all the attachments you can use...

Designed primarily to meet the needs of gamers with limited mobility, the Xbox Adaptive Controller is a unified hub for devices that help make gaming more accessible. Connect external devices such as switches, buttons, mounts, and joysticks to create a custom controller experience that is uniquely yours.

Click here to go to Microsoft Xbox website.

 

According to Microsoft Story Labs page

" The new Xbox Adaptive Controller, which will be available later this year, can be connected to external buttons, switches, joysticks and mounts, giving gamers with a wide range of physical disabilities the ability to customize their setups. The most flexible adaptive controller made by a major gaming company, the device can be used to play Xbox One and Windows 10 PC games and supports Xbox Wireless Controller features such as button remapping. "

There is a group of gamers who have tested these controllers. One of the gamers, Dan Bertholomey, is excited for the endless possibilities the controllers have. He now plans on competing again in eSports! 

Another gamer, Solomon Romney said,

"I can customize how I interface with the Xbox Adaptive Controller to whatever I want. If I want to play a game entirely with my feet, I can. I can make the controls fit my body, my desires, and I can change them anytime I want. You plug in whatever you want and go. It takes virtually no time to set it up and use it. It could not be simpler. I get to redesign my controller every day and get to choose how I want to play, Romney said. For me, that's the greatest thing ever." 

There is so much more to read and learn about the Xbox adaptive controllers.

I am very excited but really I am happy this FINALLY exists. Inclusivity matters. Sofia was thinking the same thing as me, It's about time!

Would you use these controllers? Have you made your own adaptive controller?

Virtual Reality and Accessiblity

Have you heard of Virtual Reality?

The most common access to Virtual Reality is the Samsung Galaxy Gear. This kit consists of a headset that you put your Samsung phone in (shown in video below) and then put that head piece on. This form of technology has the ability to take you anywhere in or out of this world, using the Samsung phone screen. 

My first experience with Virtual Reality, or VR, was this Samsung. It is almost like putting on  goggles that give you a 360 degree view of any image or video the phone is displaying. 

When I put on the VR Gear, I saw a video of a National Forrest. It was incredible, I felt like I was really there. I was amazed that I could go anywhere I wanted with this VR, which meant that anyone else can too. Even someone in a wheelchair or someone who is bed bound. It was like a light bulb turned on in my brain. And I was not alone!

Watch the video below from USA Today, where Tim learns about VR and tries it out!

My favorite quote from Tim was, 

" Everywhere is Accessible! "

That's the beauty of this technology. It is accessible and makes everything accessible! 

I hope that the VR experience shows Tim that he can do all the things he dreams of doing. To learn more about Tim and how you can help, go to his GoFundme page.

Throw back Thursday !

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Do you know what that means? Let's have a little throw back.

Here are pictures from the 2014 National Multiple Sclerosis Annual Bike Ride in Frankenmuth. Yes, I said Frankenmuth! It turned out to be a wonderful way to spend the weekend with the family and raise awareness for MS.

Luis has been cycling since he was a teenager! The MS bike rides are a great way to do the things he loves the most, spend time with family and ride bike.

The BFA LLC. family has been involved in the disability community from the very start. After having an overwhelming amount of clients with Multiple Sclerosis, Luis and Gwendolyne knew they had to be involved with MS organizations and community to learn how they could make a difference in a cause that effects too many people they knew.

Have you participated in any bike rides, walks or other events to raise awareness/ funds for an organization close to your heart?
