As an active member of the Tripadvisor forums, and a Destination Expert for the Beach Vacations forum, I often see questions about beach access for those using wheelchairs or other mobility aids.

In hopes of being able to help other travelers with these questions, I decided to google “Beach Wheelchair”.  What I found was an extremely helpful and unique set of products by a company called Deming Designs in Pensacola, FL.

The Beach Wheelchair was designed by Mike Deming for use by his wife Karen.  The business has since expanded, and beach wheelchairs are now available for use at many public beaches and resorts in the US and Caribbean.

In addition to beach wheelchairs, the company also offers pool wheelchairs, beach walkers and the Mobi-Chair (a beach wheelchair that floats in the water).

What a brilliant idea and a great lineup of products.
