Our approach

Advance accessible living through products that deliver value to the disability community, as decided by members of the disability community.

    Real reviews matter.

    Our review team members come from across the US and Canada and have diverse disability experiences. They are compensated for their work regardless of their opinion about a product, and we share their full thoughts - good or bad - with you. Many reviewed items are ones that our team members own and use regularly, but we also purchase items that they think might be useful and want to evaluate. If you are interested in applying to join our review team, please contact us.

    We care about what you think.

    We do not claim that the products in our collections are the best at meeting the varied needs of the disability community, only that there is a real person and experience behind each product that say it's worth considering. If you know of a product or way of doing something that could work better, please tell us about it. We want to be a catalyst for dialogue and will consider all recommendations for our website.

    Everybody’s day is different; nobody’s day can be defined in one way. We embrace this, and we hope you’ll join us.

        Message from Liam:

        "I have had my life significantly improved by adaptive products. For some [products], I have been able to ask disabled friends for input or comments, and for others I’ve had to try out for myself (sometimes with frustrating results). And lucky for me, many of the adaptive products I have found to be useful are marketed to those without disabilities, such as an Amazon Echo, Keurig coffee maker, and iPad for reading (without having to turn pages!). The contrast between the marketing of these products versus the many other disability-specific products I own and use regularly (such as button hooks for shirts, adaptive fingernail clippers, transfer bars, and bed rails) is incredible. Additionally, there is no curated resource for help navigating the multitude of available products, frequently meaning the fact that I’d even know about a product that would really improve my quality of life is left up to chance."

        Message from Kate:

        "My sister and my whole family know the difference that one good product can make. A new item that helps support Jen's independence, whether by reducing falls or making daily tasks easier, or that she finds relaxing is a big deal. Sometimes these are new, innovative products for balance. Sometimes these are adaptive items that have been around for years—such as plates and bowls that grip the table. And often, these are products that have never been considered "adaptive" – think a scalp massager, a cozy blanket, or a well-designed water bottle."
