"Comprehensive accessibility would benefit all of us"

What is it like when you have to manage everyday life in a wheelchair? And what effects do age-related limitations have on mobility? Interested parties can experience this with the help of a wheelchair course and an age simulation suit. REHACARE.com spoke with Hedwig Reiffs from the Self-Help Organization of Physically Disabled Persons Bonn (German: Selbsthilfe Körperbehinderter Bonn e.V.), who recently attended this kind of adventure day in Bonn, Germany.
