Accessible Travel Week by Martyn Sibley.

We welcome you to Accessible Travel Week, a new yearly educational campaign to help spark the debate about the difficulties of accessible travel. Using fun & educational videos and guides Martyn Sibley will reveal his best strategies for overcoming the many hurdles to accessible travel so other disabled people can enjoy life-changing adventures too.

On Wednesday March 30, will be the date "Accessible Travel Week" is launched to the market. They wanted to give people some really useful information before telling them about accessible traveller itself and ideally, they'd like it to be something that can transcend. Accessible Travel Week will catch on and become a yearly event all sorts of people can get involved in.

3 videos will be released filled with useful info about accessible travel, along with some downloadable guides as well. There is also a fourth video talking about their newsletter Accessible Traveller.

For example, last week they had an interview with Virgin Atlantic for one of their videos to demonstrate some of accessibility equipment at their base which will form part of the guide to air travel. Martyn also had a day with Holiday Inn where he used one of their adapted rooms as an example of what to look for when finding accessible accommodation that will form part of another downloadable guide. All this will be provided completely for free as part of Accessible Travel Week. The content will be available at http://accessibletravelweek.com/

Travelling with a disability can be a daunting experience when it goes well, let alone if any problems arise. Many people who wish to travel and have a disability are put off from just the thought of all the stress, confusion and responsibility of booking the holiday. Would you even know where to begin when booking an accessible holiday

Martyn Sibley is a wheelchair user and he has Spinal Muscular Atrophy. It wasn't so long ago he was too afraid to travel, even though it was top of his bucket list. The thought of taking equipment, arranging care, finding out which places were accessible, was just too overwhelming for him. For years, he sat there on Google just wishing he was travelling to all these beautiful countries. Then he thought: “screw it.”

He has now been travelling for over 10 years, and he doesn't even look back. He is here to urge you to do the same. He is running an awesome social campaign called “Accessible Travel Week” where you can find hints and tips on how to book your dream holiday.

Here are 5 handy tips to think about while you plan your holiday of a lifetime:

1. Know your outcome – work out in advance of any real planning or investigation exactly what you want to get out if your trip. Are you sightseeing, relaxing by the beach, road tripping, camping? Who is coming with you, will you need to take personal assistants, what are you willing to compromise on? Answering these questions in advance will make the actual gritty details of planning a LOT quicker and easier.
2. Research and book with an airline you know will cater for your need. Make sure to contact them beforehand and make them aware of everything you need. They will help you through security, ensure all your necessary equipment is boarded safely, and help you physically board the flight so it's important to make sure they know what they're doing and won't leave you hanging.
3. Contact the hotel you wish to stay at, prior to your stay. Trust me, it’s utterly disappointing when a hotel deems itself “accessible” when really there are a few small steps, a bathroom not big enough for a wheelchair and an abnormally high bed. Either ring or email the hotel and get them to confirm that the hotel is 100% accessible; ask as many questions as you wish to ensure clarity, this will reduce the chances of confusion, upset or disappointment on your holiday.
4. Research and work out how you’re going to travel around your chosen destination. Many people don’t think about this and just assume they’ll work it out when they get there; this is very bad idea. Research the area, find out the most common ways of travel (be it taxi, subway, bus, train, car hire etc.) Contact companies if you can for clarification, and if need be, book. You will find with most destinations that taxi and hire care are the most stress-free, easy options, but will be higher in price.
5. Ensure you have all of your documents printed. This doesn’t just mean your plane tickets and accommodation ticket, this means certificates (ATOL, insurance etc.), emails, addresses, attraction information, phone numbers… Make sure it’s ALL written down and taken with you. You may not need all of the information, but for ease of mind, it’s handy to have it with you.

If you’d like to gain more tips and advice, learn and seek from others who have travelled with a disability and get the chance to ask those all-important questions that’ve been bugging you for years, then check out Accessible Travel Week; it’s completely free and I promise it will be beneficial to YOU.

PS At the end of Accessible Travel Week they'll be revealing something new and exciting Martyn has been working on that will help make accessible travel a LOT easier so please look out for it, you'll be pleased you did :)

CEAPAT. Open Doors Week

The National Reference Centre for Personal Autonomy and Technical Aids (Ceapat) is holding the Week of Open Doors 2015. On this occasion, the center will receive on Monday the visit of Minister of Health, Social Services and Equality, Alfonso Alonso. The mission of the National Reference Centre for Personal Autonomy and Technical Aids (Ceapat) is to contribute to making the rights of persons with disabilities and older persons effective, through integral accessibility, assistive products and technologies and design for all

The theme chosen is 'Ceapat 5G', which refers to the 5 generations of people to whom is dedicated the week: children, adolescents, young adults and seniors. Thus, the Week of Open Doors 2015 Ceapat-Imserso proposes this time an intergenerational vision of technology for everyone.

Each day will be addressed to a population group: Monday older than 85 years, Tuesday at people between 70 and 85, Wednesday to adults between 30 and 70, Thursday to youth and adolescents, and Friday's child population between 0 and 12 years.

A transnational approach, this year will be attended by professionals and experts from Denmark and Norway, through the collaboration of embassies and public and private institutions.

Attendance at the conference is free until full capacity. Pre-registration only for guided tours of the permanent exhibition of support products and technical solutions for accessibility visits will be required.

Open Week is aimed at both professionals and the general public. 'Ceapat 5G' aims to be a meeting point for citizens and society with government, associations, foundations, corporations and academia and research.
The sessions include lectures, round tables, expert panels and workshops, and aim to encourage reflection and action on issues such as ethics and the elderly, friendly cities, employment, and training for all early care and their relationship with assistive technology, accessibility and universal design.

The days have magnetic loop subtitles and interpretation in sign language and will be broadcast live via the Internet.

Accessible Madrid will be at the CEAPAT Open doors Week presenting Genny Urban 2.0 electric wheelchair.

Genny ™ 2.0 is suitable for any moment of your daily life: at work, travelling, leisure, sport, etc. It will help you to move from one place to another with a new energy. Genny ™ 2.0 is ideal for use both indoors and outdoors. Indoors, you can easily rotate on the axis, easing the process to get in an out of an elevator, or maneuvering in narrow spaces such as in a room. Outdoors, Genny ™ 2.0, is known for its versatility in all kind of terrains. Genny ™ 2.0 has everything you need: personal transport with autobalance, and modern and smart vehicle. Get ready to have fun!

Genny™ was born from the intuition of Paolo Badano,businessman who, due to a banal road accident, has been living for over twenty years with his wheelchair. Following the accident, over the years, Paolo looked for a way to improve his daily mobility, but without finding anything able to make him break away from the usual schemes. The four-wheelel wheelchair not only seemed constraining and often aesthetically arguable, but had a clearly obsolete technology as well.

Only in 2009 Segway pt, a self-balancing ride equipped with only two wheels conceived by Dean Kamen and produced by Segway inc., drew his attention. Being Segway a device which imposes on his user the standing position, Paolo’s idea was to make this technology available to the “seated people” (definition often used by Paolo to define motor disability). So Genny™ was born, his first ambitious project, having as primary obligation to ensure the safety of his user. For over two years Paolo has been working on this new technology, dealing with the problems that came up every day. His decision to use Segway’s technology and the experience of world-renowned designers in the field of robotic made the difference, leading the project to an undisputed success and succeeding in creating the world first two wheel self-balancing chair. Today Genny™, thanks to the official partnership with Segway inc., has become reality. Thanks to hers advanced technology Genny™ breaks forever the mould, bringing every hindrance down, whether architectural or psychological.

Genny™ utilises an adapted to the case’s needs expressly modified Segway self- balancing base, ensuring immediate spins on the same axis and to go ahead without operating any control lever, like throttle or brake. 18% Maximum incline and slope and 3 HP power.

How does the Genny work?
The two parallel wheels and many electronic sensors (such as 5 gyroscopes) allow Genny™ to move only shifting part of the bust forward to advance, backward to slow down and brake. Simple handlebars permit the means spinning without a compulsory specific use of the hands, leaving them totally free.

Great innovation, reduced dimensions:
Designed even for inner spaces. The reclining seatback and the easily extractable handlebars, removable using only one hand, reduce Genny™ to a “cube” with a side of 67cm and make it extremely compact and fit for transportation. 67 cm Height, 63 cm Width and 69 cm Depth.

Safety:
Nothing is left to chance. Parking: two small feet permit to stabilize your Genny™ in a simple and safe way. The presence detector placed under the seat makes Genny™’s functioning possible only if the driver is on board, avoiding machine accidental activations and ensuring its turning off when getting out.

Side handle:
In addition to giving support during the use and helping in transferring from another chair, side handles, when overturned, activate the emergency feet descent mechanism.

Redundancy:
To ensure the safety in case of failure, Genny™ takes from the world of aeronautics the redundancy technique. This procedure provides for the doubling of the electronic or mechanical circuits in order to avoid unpleasant consequences in case of failure of one of them. X2 Batteries, X2 Electronic boards, X4 Total engines.

Control panel:
The push-button panel enables/disables the parking control and the lights (optional).
1. LED bar indicator: it signals the parking feet battery charge
2. Lights activation button
3-4. Genny™, by pushing button 3 and 4 in sequence, starts functioning stabilizing the load. The same operation is done to lower the parking feet again once stopped.

InfoKey: The InfoKey wireless controller is the mean to enable, check and communicate Genny™’s functioning. It is equipped with four buttons along the external perimeter and with a central display. The buttons allow to choose the various functions and to review all the information on the display.

Ergonomics:
Ergonomics is the science of the interaction between users and technologies. Genny™ adopts a solution that is unique in the world in the field of ergonomics: Tarta®, a seatback conceived by the namesake firm which dedicates its work to posturology with a mix of aesthetic and well-advanced materials. GM Design Team has redrawn and realized a custom-made Tarta® for Genny™. Modular, with few simple strong parts, Tarta® seatback answers to many needs, from those aesthetic, for trending seats, to those serious problems of disabled people. Everyone can benefit from this innovative solution.

Genny 2.0 Urban. The ultimate solution

Genny 2.0 Urban

Genny™ was born from the intuition of Paolo Badano,businessman who, due to a banal road accident, has been living for over twenty years with his wheelchair. Following the accident, over the years, Paolo looked for a way to improve his daily mobility, but without finding anything able to make him break away from the usual schemes.

Thanks to hers advanced technology Genny™ breaks forever the mould, bringing every hindrance down, whether architectural or psychological.

Genny 2.0 Urban is functional as well as beautiful to see. One of the objectives that Paolo set from the beginning of his “adventure” was to carry on, with this idea, a completely new and ambitious concept: connect the word “design” to the word “disability”. Genny™’s design wants to shift the interlocutor’s focus from the problem of the reduced mobility to the charm linked to the means used. Together with the autonomy, this new interpretation can be fundamental to the complicated path toward disability integration.

The rollator Vs. The standard walker

A rollator is also known as a rolling walker. The rollator has been designed using the same basic principles of the regular standard walker. The rollator addresses specific needs that are not met by the traditional walker.

The biggest complaint from people using the regular walkers is when they need a seat to sit down and when they get tired from walking and need to rest. Regular walkers do not come with a seat to rest. Regular walkers do not handle as good outdoors or on uneven pavement or gravel. Rollator walkers all come with a seat for resting except the 3 wheel version which is used when patients do not need the seat but still want the bigger wheels for easier rolling outdoors.

Rollators were made with this in mind. Rollators or Rolling walkers have wheels that are made to be used outside and on uneven surfaces and can hold higher weight capacities than most standard walkers and come with swivel wheels on the front legs so the person using it doesn’t have to lift the rollator to turn right or left like a standard walker requires. Rollators come in 4 different types. There is the 3 wheel rollators, 4 wheel rollators,heavy duty rollators and the rollator wheelchair combo.

Four wheel rollators typically include a seat, pouch and/or basket, and hand brakes, and fold down for storage or travel. With a variety of colors, weight capacities, sizes, and and other options, there is a perfect four wheel rollator for everyone.

Topro Troja 2G
The topro Troja 2G is a new generation of rollators. It stands ahead of the competition with increased safety, flexibility and the best possible comfort.

It has has an optional backrest available to make taking a break on the rollator even more comfortable. The Troja also comes with a fall alarm designed to alert others when the rollator falls over emitting an alert tone and flashing the rollators lights.

Topro Troja 2G Features:
- Ergonomic Handles: ergonomic hand positions while in use, the new handles also provide a secure support when standing from a sitting position.
- Removable Wheels - quick release wheels, this means that the wheels can be easily and quickly removed from the frame making the rollator even smaller and lighter, perfect for storage and easily transported in the smallest car boot. There are also two types of wheels available the standard PTE wheels as currently fitted to the Troja rollator and also the soft PUR wheels as fitted to the Topro Olympos offroad rollator.
- Additional reflectives - additional reflective panels on the front, rear, and sides of the rollator.
- Redesigned Kerblifter.
- Shopping Bag and fitting Mechanism - the bag attaches to the front of the rollator, the fitting mechanism allows the bag to be quickly attached or removed and carried into the house.
- LED Headlights with Safety Alarm - The engineers at Topro have added powerful LED headlights to the frame of the Troja 2G, when activated the headlights will turn on in low light conditions allowing you to move safely when entering a dark room or out walking in the evening. The headlights also have an alarm function that will sound and flash whtn the rollator is tipped over, attracting attention and help in the event of a fall or accident.

Topro Troja 2G standard features:

Predif Courses: Accessible Tourism and Customer with Disabilities Attention

PREDIF , The Representative State Platform for Physically Disabled Persons, is a non-profit organization that works to improve the quality of life for people with severe physical disabilities. Represents and makes programs for nearly forty thousand people and has an experience, through its member federations, for over 30 years.

PREDIF is a benchmark in accessible tourism. Chairs the Committee on Accessibility and Inclusive Tourism CERMI, and their protocols and standards in the field of accessibility are the consensus around the disability sector.

PREDIF has a training program with the name "Accessible Tourism and Customer Service for Disabled and other various needs" , part of the agreement signed by PREDIF with Vodafone Spain Foundation and the Royal Board on disability, which aims to contribute to the normalization of leisure and tourism for people with disabilities through training.

The courses are free of charge and are ultimately intended to raise awareness, inform and train students and professionals in the tourism sector to improve the care provided to people with disabilities in institutions and tourist destinations, as well as provide tools for professionals to know auto- diagnosing the accessibility of tourist establishments, manage maintenance and implement improvement actions.

The courses are taught flawlessly and enjoyable by Tatiana German Selva, Technical Director PREDIF and Isidro Martin PREDIF technical accessibility. In the course there are interesting practices that test participants in order to sensitize them on how to provide better service in their tourism facilities for people with disabilities.

Courses can be requested by:

- Universities in the Spanish territory that offer the degree of tourism or any related with this sector.
- Students of Tourism or other related careers.
- Professional tourism sector of government and / or local tourism businesses

In the Accessible Tourism are equally important both accessibility features presenting the tourist accommodation and the services offered therein by the staff of customer service. It is therefore important that tourism professionals are trained to enable them to know in depth the needs of people with disabilities and develop the skills and abilities to provide care and adequate service.

Course Syllabus
