Momentum Refresh

Our partnership provides a fully accessible restroom for people with disabilities at some of Cincinnati's most popular events.

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 a height-adjustable sink and adult changing table.

Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services (HCDDS) is excited to collaborate with Momentum Refresh to improve accessibility and inclusion at events around Cincinnati this year. Thanks to a grant from the Ohio Department of DD, we’re partnering with event organizers to give people with disabilities the opportunity to participate in more of the most exciting events in our city.

HCDDS is working with the Cincinnati Chamber, 3CDC, Cincinnati Pride, Northside Community Council, Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati, Envision, the Cincinnati Art Museum and others to put inclusion and accessibility at the forefront of event experiences.

“Momentum Refresh removes a major barrier by offering people with disabilities the opportunity to attend events in their communities and know that restroom access will be available, whether they need assistance, a lift, or a changing table.
We’re excited to be able to share this incredible resource with our community.”

Momentum Refresh is a universally designed mobile unit that exceeds the requirements set by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Each stop includes a professional attendant who can assist people and their caregivers as needed.

Users must provide their own slings for the ceiling hoist.

Wow! I had no idea something like this existed. Totally a game-changer for events.
