About this session

Over the last years we worked on multiple projects where we designed digital products for people with neuromuscular disorders. As I have a neuromuscular disorder myself I was naturally intrigued by these projects. Starting from the known guidelines and my personal experience, we wanted to create products that really fit their specific needs. So how do you design a digital product for a specific disability? How can you do inclusive research to find their needs? I will talk about how we adapted and what we learned. And of course about what our findings were and how they influenced our design decisions.
