Archability seeks to create functional, ergonomic facilities without compromising elements of design that are important to architecture – it is about creating ‘homes’ not ‘hospitals’.

The architectural planning division of Active Mobility Systems, Archability was founded in 2014 with a revolutionizing vision to transform environments of disabled individuals who deserve accessibility to modern comforts. We offer architects a range of fittings, fixtures and equipment for healthcare projects – including aged care and supported housing.

Archability is a consultative solutions-based approach to achieving clinical outcomes without a clinical appearance. Archability embraces and caters to the need of modern structural design to be accessible to everyone.


The concept of Archability has its beginnings in the need for modern architecture to provide accessibility for all people and thereby address the seven principles of Universal Design.

EQUITABLE USE – The design is useful and marketable to people with diverse abilities

FLEXIBILITY IN USE – The design accommodates a wide range of individual preferences and abilities

SIMPLE AND INTUITIVE USE – Use of the design is easy to understand, regardless of the user’s experience, knowledge, language skills or current concentration level

PERCEPTIBLE INFORMATION – The design communicates necessary information effectively to the user, regardless of ambient conditions or the user’s sensory abilities

EQUITABLE USE – The design is useful and marketable to people with diverse abilities

TOLERANCE FOR ERROR – The design minimizes hazards and the adverse consequences of accidental or unintended actions

LOW PHYSICAL EFFORT – The design can be used efficiently and comfortably with minimum fatigue

SIZE AND SPACE FOR APPROACH AND USE – Appropriate size and space is provided for approach, reach, manipulation, and use regardless of user’s body size, posture, or mobility.
