Universal design, also called inclusive design, is a philosophy that encourages the production of buildings, vehicles and products that are accessible to all people. Whether a user is elderly, not disabled or is currently suffering from a disability, proponents of universal design believe that a fundamental goal of any design process should be broad, inherent accessibility. In developing the philosophy, the Center for Universal Design at North Carolina State University defined a set of principles, a series of guidelines that can help designers ensure that their products are created with accessibility in mind:

  • Equitable use

  • Flexibility in use

  • Simple and intuitive to use

  • Perceptible information

  • Tolerance for error

  • Low physical effort

  • Size and space for approach and use

With these considerations in mind, every Clock Mobility Van is thoroughly inspected, tested and maintained to adhere to universal design principles. As a BraunAbility dealer, we work closely with them to ensure that our vans are easily accessible and simple to use. In fact, BraunAbility has a long history of revolutionizing the mobility industry and has helped millions of people gain independence with products like handicap vans, lifts and more.
