Universal Design

Home Medical Solutions is proud to offer an Universal Design Department to assist you with your home accessibility needs. 

Our Industry Experts can do it all from small installs and modifications like hand rails and grab bars to full Home Renovations such as rebuilding stairs to accommodate lifts and elevators, increasing width of doors and a complete bathroom remodel.

Universal Design is based off of the following seven principles

The design is useful and marketable to individuals with diverse abilities. 

The design accommodates a wide range of individual preferences and abilities. 

Use of the design is easy to understand, regardless of the user’s experience, knowledge, language skills, or concentration level. 

The design communicates necessary information effectively to the user, regardless of ambient conditions or the user’s sensory abilities. 

The design minimizes hazards and the adverse consequences of accidental or unwanted actions. 

The design can be used efficiently and comfortably with minimum fatigue. 

Appropriate size and space is provided for approach, reach, manipulation, and use regardless of user’s body size, posture, or mobility.
