Abstract

Inclusive design and its US counterpart universal design present opportunities
and challenges to industry. However, despite the motivations for adoption of more
inclusive design practices, industry has been slow to adopt them (Keates and
Clarkson, 2002).
This research aims to provide an understanding of why and how companies adopt
inclusive design practices and what are the barriers when implementing them.
Based on a series of interviews with UK design consultancies and a similar review
in the US, a comparison of issues raised by UK and US companies regarding
inclusive/universal design is made.
