Physical accessibility

Physical accessibility makes it possible for people to enter a building and use its features. With adequate physical accessibility, everyone—including, for example, a person using a wheelchair, walker, or other mobility aid—is able to enter the building and access all aspects of the building that anyone else can access. Curb cuts, ramps, elevators, accessible bathrooms, Braille on signs, and much more all play a role in physical accessibility. The 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design includes technical specifications for providing physical accessibility.
