Keep in mind that context is key - products should be accessible, affordable, usable, durable and maintainable. Let’s ensure that people with disabilities have the tools that they need to live healthy and prosperous lives.
To kick start your brainstorming, a few ideas that would fit into this category include:
- Designs for new products that would allow persons with physical or mental impairments to improve their mobility or increase access to existing places and services.
- Adaptations to existing products and tools such as wheelchairs, glasses, prosthetics, hearing aids, prosthetics, ramps, urinary management tools, and cushions.
- Improving product-related services and delivery such as wheelchair servicing, eyeglass fitting, or installation of ramps to buildings.
- New businesses that would support wider distribution to remote areas.
