Your life, my life, everyone’s life. This is a website about the physical limitations usually described as “disabilities,” and the gear, gadgets, and schemes that can make life better, easier, and more feasible.

If you’re not disabled, this is still a blog for you, because, if you live long enough, you will be disabled eventually. Maybe only for a day or a week, but it will happen. You’ll crash while skiing, or hit your thumb with a hammer. Maybe you’ll get careless with your contact lenses and infect your eyes, or just misplace your glasses for a day. Or shatter your wrist in an auto accident, or slam your head on a pole that you didn’t see in time while strolling along. And then you’ll know a little bit more about life with limitations.

In the meantime, though, here’s one person’s take on a world most people rarely think of. Life with limitations and the gear that makes things work. Welcome to GearAbility — the tools and tricks that make the difference.
