Improving Event Accessibility

Hamilton County DD Services is excited to partner with Momentum Refresh to improve accessibility and inclusion at events around Cincinnati this year.

Momentum Refresh is the nation’s first fully accessible, universally designed mobile restroom. It’s equipped with a wheelchair lift, customizable grab bars, an overhead ceiling hoist, and height-adjustable adult changing tables and sink.

“Momentum Refresh allows people with disabilities to participate in some of the most exciting events in our city,” said Dawn Freudenberg, director of Planning, Innovation, and Quality for HCDDS.

“It removes a major barrier by allowing people to attend events in their communities and knowing that restroom access will be available. We’re excited to share this incredible resource with our community.”
