Mobility freedom, via AXS Map

Jason DaSilva does it again! DaSilva, a filmmaker based in Brooklyn and who lives with MS, helped create the platform named AXS Map. It’s kind of like Yelp enhanced with one very important feature: the ability to quickly find the accessible places in your neighborhood city.

How does it work?

It looks pretty easy and fun. Users have the ability to review the location, using a star system, on the accessibility of the entry and bathroom. Plus, users can indicate if it’s spacious and/or quiet, if there is a second entry, the parking situation, if there is a ramp and if there is braille.

"It was very frustrating, you know, I was finding that the freedoms that I had — just simple things like meeting up with friends and things, it was becoming more and more difficult. So that's why I came up with this idea," DaSilva told Mashable.
To find out more, check out this article over at Mashable. And, of course, check out the AXS Mapwebsite. It looks pretty amazing which is not surprising since he collaborated with Google and Acorda to make it all happen. It will only get better as more users join. Why not register today?

Best always,
