Abstract

The aim of inclusive design is to make products accessible to the widest possible population. Although inclusive design is not a new genre, given that similar ideas already existed in the 1970s, the context today is different from that of thirty years ago. The new technology, the emerging ‘grey’ market and the growing disability movement leading to the integration of disabled people into the mainstream society, etc., have formed a new paradigm of designing for inclusion.

Designers seldom deny the importance and benefits of inclusive design. However, they are lacking appropriate skills for practising inclusive design. This probably accounts for the prevalence of ‘non-inclusive designs’ in the mainstream market. The objective of this research is to identify what information about inclusive design is useful for designers and provide them with practical support.
