Currently, there is a large part of our population who, due to a developmental disability or medical condition, need to wear diapers/protective undergarments. Current baby changing tables only support people up to around 40 lbs. This excludes a large portion of our population who needs a safe, private and dignified place to change.

There are a few hundred places around our country that have realized the need to be more inclusive and have installed universal changing tables in their restrooms (these are around 6 feet long and can hold up to 400 lbs). These are inclusive to anyone who needs a changing surface and allows people who previously stayed isolated at home to have the freedom to explore their communities, knowing there will be a restroom available where they can care for themselves or their loved one. The problem is, no one knows where these universal changing tables are.

Inspired Access Foundation envisions creating a map that displays these universal changing tables. People who need a place to change can use this map as a resource to help them plan out their day or a road trip. This will give people the confidence and freedom to participate in life outside their homes.
