Adaptive Equipment Inventor/Specialist

Rich Fabend is a volunteer with the Inclusive Recreation Resource Center. Rich is an alum of SUNY Cortland, and worked for several years in education and recreation, including a regular staff with the SUNY Cortland Outdoor Education Practicum at Raquette Lake. After sustaining a spinal cord injury, Rich started, a website that contains simple ideas and tools that are either inexpensive to purchase or cost little to make. Hopefully, these suggestions will help physically challenged individuals overcome some of the frustrations they face daily. Visit for more information ( Rich has invented or created numerous pieces of adaptive equipment to help people play wherever they choose!
