Burma Bridge

Description: This element contains a foot cable and two hand lines that a person uses to traverse from one side to the other.

Examples of Inclusive Options:

  • Add two more intermediate lines to create a five–line Burma Bridge. These lines stabilize the bridge for those people who have balance issues and allow them to brace their legs against it if necessary, (Rohnke‚ Wall‚ Tait‚ and Rogers‚ 2003).

  • A custom made mat can also be placed inside the bridge that would allow someone who is non–ambulatory to scoot across by using the intermediate lines as hand lines, (Rohnke‚ Wall‚ Tait‚ and Rogers‚ 2003).
