Slackline as grab bar

We have been exploring how grab bar like objects can support inclusion in a home and school setting. Using a slackline is an idea by Chris Taleff, Architect and Facilitator at Cottonwood ALC school. If installed taut at the appropriate height it can serve as a grab bar for children that are unable to walk independently. It is:


– easy to install, no drilling required
– portable
– economical
– an off the shelf solution
– great fun!


Children with a range in ages and abilities have used this slackline both indoors and outdoors in creative ways.


Thank you Cottonwood ALC for advancing inclusion!
