Inclusive Design products are those that serve people with a wide range of abilities and ages. These products are mass-produced and often cheaper than having to order, wait, and pay for specialized products.
“The design of mainstream products and/or services that are accessible to, and usable by, as many people as reasonably possible…without the need for special adaptation or specialised design.” – The British Standards Institute, 2005
Examples of Inclusive Design
- Accessibility features included on computers and mobile devices
- Websites that allow for font size variation or inverted colors
- “Easy turn” medication bottles
- Kitchen utensils with thicker handles coated in non-slip material
