Wheel Pad manufactures home attachments and backyard tiny houses that make any property a safe and cozy universally accessible place for people with mobility disabilities. Wheel Pad aims to help people stay in their homes: whether they are seeking to age in place, recover after an accident, or quickly add more square footage for a growing and changing family. Wheel Pad products exceed ADA specifications and come with a track in the ceiling that is compatible with any lift on the market that can take you from the bed area to the bathroom. The bathroom itself is a full wet room to avoid transitioning in and out of the shower, and allows ample space for an aide if needed. The PAD also has an accessible kitchenette for more independent living. But that's not the limit of what Wheel Pad can do!

AT Advocates, ILC Staff, DLDC Staff, AT Centers, AT Professionals, Members of the general public who could benefit from accessible housing
