Inclusive design of playground and play equipment
An important quality to Ramplines play equipment is that it can be used by everyone, regardless of their age or abilities. Because of this, inclusive design is a key factor in our development of play equipment.
Play equipment and playgrounds with inclusive design
Play and activity are equally important to everyone!
When we know how important play and activity is for well-being and development both physically and mentally. It’s therefore a basic value in Rampline that we design for everyone, not for anyone. As developers and designers we see opportunities in limitations. It’s about focusing on smart solutions and good design that everyone benefit from. Our goal of universal design is to develop solutions that invite individuals equally, that is, everyone finds something they can master with their abilities. Our balance parks are unique and in a class of its own for the development of balance. Balance is fundamental to human functionality and equally important for everyone to practice.
What is inclusive design?
In 2006, the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was adopted by the UN General Assembly an here is their definition:
Universal design means the design of products, environments, programmes and services to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design. Universal design shall not exclude assistive devices for particular groups of persons with disabilities where this is needed.
This makes Rampline’s play equipment and balance parks designed with inclusive design:
- Easy access
All product series from Rampline have solutions where the play equipment is easy to access, without any obstacles on or around the play equipment.
- Low height
All play equipment from Rampline have solutions with low height that make play and activity available at all levels.
- High safety
If you don´t master, slip or falls, the fall height is low. The play equipment have dimensions that are possible for everyone to grip.
Our play equipment should invite the user to explore and see opportunities for movement. How can I master this device based on my skills? How does the play equipment respond to the movements I do? These activity devices and play equipment are designed for creative play and not for one particular action or movement.
- Play and exercise based on individual skills
On Rampline products you are able to develop skills, without skills being a requirement for playing or exercising. We make it possible for users with poorly developed balance and mobility to find simple and safe approaches to play and activity. Good balance training can be done in many ways. For people with a well-developed balance ang good body strength there will always be new challenges to master Rampline’s play equipment. People can play together on their own premises.
- Impact area
Our play equipment are first and foremost designed for installing in wet pour rubber as a shock absorbing area. With the wet pour rubber, it is convenient and easier for wheelchair users and others with disabilities to move inside the area and access the play and activity equipment. All of our balance parks are designed with wet pour rubber/EPDM as an impact area.
