SALTO Systems brought an entire community together over the last weekend for a fun packed day of basketball and wheelchair basket exhibitions at the Donostia 2016 Arena.
SALTO Systems new social initiative free2move.org is proud to announce the launch of an innovative "Accessibility Map" project integrating Google Maps and Facebook in one community location called FREE2MOVE GUIDE.
The main objective is to help people with a disability to find easily accessible locations anywhere, in any city. The map will also provide information on facilities that feature barrier-free environments by providing aids such as ramps, hand-rails and non-slip surfaces.
Thanks to this new tool, everyone across the world who joins free2move.org on Facebook, will have the chance to join “FREE2MOVE GUIDE” and help to create and shape a world that’s easily accessible for all, setting a personal example by supporting the handicapped communities’ values of courage, equality, determination and inspiration.
The "FREE2MOVE GUIDE” accessibility map project is unique. It’s the first world wide map to disability friendly locations and barrier-free facilities compiled from data supplied from people everywhere. It’s a tool that can help to ensure everyone can support handicapped people and help change society's attitude towards people with a disability in their country, allowing them to lead a full life, free from barriers or stereotyping.
To participate in the project, just join free2move.org on Facebook or go to www.free2move.org, where you can upload photos of ramps, hand-rails, anti-slip surfaces and any barrier-free environments together with their location. They will then be placed on the "FREE2MOVE GUIDE" on Google Maps, where it will also be possible to vote on issues or make general comments. In addition to this, all new places reported as wheelchair or handicapped people friendly will also be tweeted on twitter free2move.org profile.
