Ensuring the design of everyday items helps people with disability

What is it about?

This article examines the history of assistive equipment and how the concept of inclusive design has contributed to its development. It then explains why society should encourage the development of more inclusive design features and how therapists can be involved in this process.

Why is it important?

Mrs Julie I Swann
