The World is More Connected Than Ever Before

AWARENESS & EDUCATION

We utilize everything from a traditional motivational speech to podcasts and social media to raise awareness about accessible technology, medical advancements and adaptive recreation that exist today.

The 50 Schools / 50 States campaign is a unique program that is taken on the road to schools and institutions across America.  Our goal is to make people more aware of what adaptive athletics is all about.  We want to inspire students and non-students to think more deeply about how they can contribute to this new revolution!

Research & Development

R&D plays an important roll in blazing a trail to making athletics and recreation accessible to everyone.  Adaptive athletics and recreation often requires individuals with disabilities to create a piece of equipment, or modifying something they already have, to do what they enjoy.  It may also require developing a “not so standard” technique.

A custom handle developed by Creating Ability is attached to a paddle and allows a kayaker with limited use of their hands to be able to grip the paddle.

Some of our future objectives include:

  • Development of training theories on conventional athletics and adaptive athletics.
  • Examination of adaptive athletic communication systems & techniques and what works best for the athlete.
  • The invention of new technology to support the adaptive athletic community.

Our R&D is Currently in a research phase, gathering information from individuals to find out what more can be done for the disabled community.
