Abstract

An inclusively-designed product should accommodate the widest possible range of user capabilities. Consequently, it is important for designers to know about the full range of potential user capabilities found across the general population when assessing product attributes prior to redesign or new concept development. A mapping between user capabilities and product assessment is thus required. This paper aims to find such a mapping through the application of a severity of impairment scale to product assessment.
