Transforming Mainstream Products for People with Disabilities

“If you want special furniture or equipment, you go to special stores.” Based on its vision to design furniture that work for all shoppers, Ikea’s branch in Israel collaborated with Access Israel and Milbat has launched a new project called ThisAbles. This project creates a range of bestselling products to be accessible for people with special needs and disabilities. Extended couch legs, an oversized switch for lamps, and special handles are the examples of new add-ons that were made to solve a different accessibility issue. Shoppers can also download free blueprints for 3-D printouts anywhere. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/03/15/ikea-is-making-furniture-better-people-with-disabilities-with-help-d-printers/

A budgeting tool for people with autism

People living with Neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) such as autism have trouble understanding numbers and abstract concepts such as value. As a result, they have been left without any financial products they can understand hence can’t aim to become independent. Olive allows for this by enabling carers to place rules ( limits, permissions) over certain categories of money (groceries, rent, etc). In this way, Olive can adapt to the decision making abilities of the user. Olive has been working with some major banks who are interested in transforming their products, and soon, she’ll be releasing a toolkit to help support banks in this process. http://awards.ixda.org/entry/2019/olive-finance-made-accessible/

The right trousers

Robo-trousers that help people stand up, walk upstairs and get out and about are being designed by British scientists in a government-funded scheme to help the elderly and disabled stay mobile. The University of Bristol is developing “smart trousers” with artificial muscles which give frail people bionic strength so they can live independently for longer. The muscles are air-filled bubbles of plastic that can raise a leg from a seated to a standing position. The project has been dubbed “The Right Trousers” in reference to The Wrong Trousers, the Wallace and Gromit animation in which Wallace constructs a pair of calamitous cyber slacks. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/sep/11/the-right-trousers-wallace-and-gromit-mobility-aid-robotic
