Assistive technology (AT) is the application of organised knowledge and skills related to assistive products, systems and services, designed to maintain or improve an individual’s functioning and independence, and thereby promote their well-being.
We are leading AT 2030 - Life Changing Assistive Technology for All, a £10m global programme that will reach 3 million people.
We believe that designing for and with disabled people and older people delivers not just sustainable solutions for those groups but crucially much better end results for all of us throughout our lives.
Our Director Iain McKinnon leads GDI Hub’s Inclusive Design. His work on the Inclusive Design Standards for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park details best practices for inclusive design within the built environment.
