Modern Wheelchair Symbol Sign - This Active-Style Wheelchair Symbol is Used in New York, Connecticut, and Elsewhere - 6" x 6"

This Active-Style Wheelchair Symbol Sign was adopted for use by New York State in 2014, and also by Connecticut in 2017. It is becoming increasingly popular throughout the country. The action expressed in this wheelchair symbol design is intended to change the traditional focus from impairment to empowerment, for persons with disabilities.

In New York, Connecticut, and elsewhere, this contemporary active-style wheelchair symbol is used on signage just as the traditional international symbol of accessibility wheelchair symbol is used: To designate an accessible entrance or exit, parking spaces for wheelchair users and persons with disabilities, or to indicate a barrier-free path of travel.

Please note: Federal ADA regulations, and many states following those regulations, have only designated the traditional wheelchair symbol as in compliance. We advise consulting with your local inspectors and access professionals to determine which style of ISA/wheelchair symbol is acceptable.

ADA Sign Depot can modify any of the ADA signs shown on our site, or make custom ADA signage, to include this New York/Connecticut compliant active-style wheelchair symbol. When you place an order, during checkout, just add a note to your order: Use NY Active-Style ISA

Many disability advocates and organizations prefer this more active wheelchair user symbol rather than the traditional International Symbol of Access, which infers passivity, and focuses attention more on the wheelchair than the person. This new wheelchair symbol of access icon is an an active, engaged image that implies motion and most importantly, focuses on the person with disability rather than the wheelchair they may be using.
