Where do I find a specially designated parking lot or a restroom for persons with disabilities (PWD)? Which museums, libraries and restaurants are wheelchair-accessible or allow guide dogs?

These and many more questions are met by MyHandicap’s new iPhone app. The app targets PWDs who are dependent on accessibility information due to mobility restrictions. At present, the service is available in Germany and Switzerland. In the search for accessible venues, the user may draw on a large number of relevant addresses in categories such as leisure & sports, education & professional health care.

The MyHandicap App is available as a free download in order to grant mobile users access to disability-related data. Users are also invited to help MyHandicap App by collecting new addresses or by rating existing material.
