“I’ve been to more places in a wheelchair than I have been walking. I can still travel and do the things that I want to do.  You can have limited mobility but it doesn’t stop you from doing what you want.” – Matt Thola

planat is an online tool that allows you to post and search reviews on the accessibility of the places where you eat, shop, work and play. Your detailed reviews make a difference in the lives of others. The tool is based on a five-point rating system, similar to consumer reviews found on travel websites and is focused on accessibility features from a mobility, sight, and hearing perspective.

planat is an innovation of the Rick Hansen Foundation http://www.rickhansen.com
