Universal Design: Lessons for Wearable Computing
July-September 2003 (vol. 2 no. 3)
pp. 19-23

The concept of universal design attempts to create products that are as usable as possible by as many people as possible, regardless of age, ability, or situation. These designs more accessible to people with disabilities and more usable and functional for all users. The practice of universal design has resulted in many products originally intended for the disabled population that benefit everyone. Current efforts are underway to create enabling technology for wearable computers.
