Experience With Long-Range Pedestrian Access?

Has anyone ever tried accommodating a handicap entrance with access control using "wearable" credentials and a long-range reader?  I've used Nedap for vehicles entering a garage where we can attach a credential to the vehicle.  Anyone try this for people at a door?  They may be in wheelchairs or using walkers, and may not be able to swipe a card or press a button.  Thanks.

Yes, I have seen numerous applications use tokens mounted to carts or wheelchairs to unlock doors.

The NEDAP UPass is quite good for this - A Revolutionary Reader? Nedap uPass Access - it can read 20' out using UHF no issues.
