Hospital promotes new universal handicap icon
San Diego Union-Tribune

The Accessible Icon Project is a worldwide effort to transform the International Symbol of Access for handicapped individuals into a new, active and engaging image.

Tri-City Medical Center has become the first facility in California to adopt this new icon. As opposed to the standard handicap icon, which the project’s website says has arms and legs “drawn like mechanical parts,” the new version features a forward-moving person, whose head and arms are visibly in motion.
