There is no question that the aging process gets in the way of our independence as we move through life. And a big part of healthy aging is the ability to stay active. Luckily, with advancements in technology and lots of innovation in the world of mobility devices, retaining your independence, getting around, and even traveling, has never been more promising. Today we are going to take a look at some of the latest advancements and transportation options to help you stay active and independent.


Craig Kennedy is a Program Coordinator and trainer with the Open Doors Organization with more than 20 years of experience working with people with disabilities, disability travel and tourism and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Craig moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado from the Adirondacks in upstate NY in 1994 where a skiing accident left him paralyzed from the waist down just two years later. Craig now lives in the Knoxville, TN area and is an avid traveler.

A published author and Co-Founder of an Adaptive Travel Resource Company called Access Anything with his wife Andy, and founder of CK Consulting, he has spent more than 20 years motivating people with disabilities to look beyond their perceived abilities and advocating for their rights as both people and travelers. He spent the last 10 years as a founding Board Member and Program Director for Steamboat Adaptive Recreational Sports (STARS) helping to grow that Adaptive Sports Program from the ground up while teaching others with disabilities how to ski and recreate in the outdoors. Craig is also a Whole Food Nutrition and Business Coach with the Juice Plus Company and brings an infectious positive attitude with him wherever he goes and hopes to affect positive change, better health, and improved access to the world of disabilities.
