Life is merely froth and bubble
Two things stand like stone
Mercy in another's trouble
Courage in your own

Algologic strongly believes that persons in good health and free of disabilities, have a moral responsibility to assist their less fortunate brethren. Algologic offers free technical guidance and assistance for those wishing to construct buildings and structures which are accessible for persons with motoring disabilities (mobility impaired persons).

You are seeing an off-line version of the original handicapped-resources document. You can always get the latest version of this document from the web:


This story is about a soldier who was finally coming home after having fought in Vietnam. He called his parents from San Francisco.
"Mom and Dad, I'm coming home, but I've got a favor to ask. I have a friend I'd like to bring with me."
"Sure," they replied, "we'd love to meet him."
"There's something you should know," the son continued, "he was hurt pretty badly in the fighting. He stepped on a land-mine and lost an arm and a leg. He has nowhere else to go, and I want him to come live with us."
"I'm sorry to hear that, son. Maybe we can help him find somewhere to live."
"No, Mom and Dad, I want him to live with us. Forever."
"Son," said the father, "you don't know what you're asking. Someone with such a handicap would be a terrible burden on us. We have our own lives to live, and we can't let something like this interfere with our lives. I think you should just come home and forget about this guy. He'll find a way to live on his own."
At that point, the son hung up the phone. The parents heard nothing more from him.
A few days later, however, they received a call from the San Francisco police. Their son had died after falling from a building, they were told. The grief-stricken parents flew to San Francisco and were taken to the city morgue to identify the body of their son. Continue ? ...then click here...

    These instructions are based on a Suisse Standard SN 521 500, and are reproduced here with permission of the original authors.

  2. Starter page for Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG). This is a very comprehensive and very well drafted document, available on the web.
    It also contains a large number of diagrams (based on the ANSI A117.1 standard), giving exact dimensions to be followed.
    You can reach the ADAAG document (including all figures), from this Adaag starter page (see Preamble of the starter page).
