Those in wheelchairs want to workout too!
Recently, in an article found here I was pleased to learn more about Apple Computers quest to make their products even more accessible to individuals with disabilities.
To my understanding, at the onset of hte apple Watch, there was no way for an individual with a disability to interact with it. Now, not only can someone with a visual impairment read the watch face, but someone in a wheel chair can be notified when it is time to move. With the new “time to roll” feature, individuals are notified if they have been sitting still too long.
For individuals who have traditional abilities, the ability to move and the importance of such movements are often taken for granted. For those in wheel chairs, the importance of movement still exists, as does the importance of muscle strength.
Props to Apple for making this great product and making it work for everyone!
