What is the Wheelguide Certification?

The Wheelguide Certification is a program that recognizes the best accessibility practices in the world

Its original methodology was developed by an interdisciplinary team, composed by specialist architects, researchers and people with disabilities. It is based on the premise that accessibility should be seen as a continuous exercise and on the concept that “accessible environments” are made by both the physical structure and the people in it.

Thus, the evaluation goes way beyond the compliance with the applicable legislation and the technical standards developed by the regulatory bodies. By understanding accessibility as a living organism and incorporating human factors, the process of evaluation also takes into account the practical experience of people with disabilities as well as the perception of the regular users of space, besides interpersonal treatment aspects.
