I am Peter Muller, an Architectural Professional, who sat on the SABS committee that drafted the SANS 10400:S 2011 standard relating to universal access in the built environment. I further wrote the section on universal access in the publication Architective: Building Construction Standards of South Africa, which was published in 2013 and 2015. This publication, and especially this chapter, was aimed at being a "best practice" guide.
Due to a passion for Universal Access and the implementation thereof in the built environment, I have also been planning on spending a week or so in a wheelchair, to experience the actual impact of that which we have done, and that which has not been done.
I have found myself recently involved in major office buildings in Kenya, and my time to research and develop further in Universal Access was very limited. However, the company I've worked for has indicated that they will not be renewing my contract at the end of April, which is off course a major financial setback, however, it does provide me with an opportunity to attempt my experimental research.
I am aware that all the equipment that would be involved are quite expensive, and I have started a crowdfunding movement to raise funds to assist with the expenses, which will most likely also include medical costs from pressure sores, etc. as I am considering doing a four week stint.
As I am residing in Kroonstad, and the DA last year asked for assistance in addressing accessibility in town, I believe it would be the perfect location to do such research. At the end of the four weeks, I would like to donate the equipment used to a worthy charity or person.
I am considering involving some camera recordings, possibly from a broadcaster, otherwise Youtube, to record my experiences, and challenges, so that people realise what the true impact of the "not so friendly" built environment is.
I have approached 4 different companies that provide mobility assistive devises to request if they would be interested in getting involved, jointly with the others to share the financial burden, as well as that of those who contribute here.
I do have one more trip to Kenya, the last week of the month, and it would be a large contributing experience, should I be able to do that traveling as part of the research. I think it would be excellent if someone like Mathys Roetz and his camera's could travel the journey with, recording all the challenges, we take for granted. Exposing them for all to see.

Planning to spend 4 weeks in a wheelchair and related elements to determine just how successful universal access provisions in the built environment really is.
Several organizations and groups are showing interest and seems a bit of discussion and planning will take place.. Am very excited.. will start some physical training (maybe unfair) what do you think? Should it just "jump" on me, as most people ending in a wheelchair did not have any warning..
