Most Wheelchair-Accessible Cities in the United States

Recently, Living Spinal conducted a study to identify the Top 10 most livable cities in the United States for wheelchair users. This study used the following criteria:

  • Air quality
  • Disabled population
  • Population of disabled employed
  • Ease of finding resources for disabilities
  • Accessible sports/recreation facilities
  • Accessible transportation offered
  • Climate

As expected, the results veer towards the West Coast. Birmingham was a big surprise at #10, due to their poor air quality, hilly terrain and limited transportation options. Could this point to the fact that so many cities offer poor options for those in wheelchairs, or are the living amenities in Birmingham that beneficial?

In reality, most places can be very accessible for wheelchair users if you are able to possess the right equipment. At M.C. Mobility, that is our aim; to make the world accessible for anyone, anywhere!
