Wheel Pad is a service that works to provide temporary accommodation for people who cannot walk, or have other mobility issues.

With the rise of tiny homes and apartments, not many of those residences focus specifically on accessibility for individuals who have physical disabilities. Wheel Pad is a 200-square-foot home that is eco-friendly and provides the necessary features for individuals with disabilities to live comfortably. The tiny home can be attached to an existing home and aims to "change the way injured soldiers and civilians come home from rehab." Everything from the bathroom to the lever above the bed work to ensure that individuals with mobility issues are comfortable in Wheel Pad's space.

This tiny accommodation works to provide disabled people with the independence they need for their psychological health, while ensuring that they are close enough to family or friends for physical or emotional support.
