The project name ‘Impactive’ originates from our aim, which is to work collaboratively with disabled people have a postive impact on Disabled people, empowering them in being active members of society bringing about change themselves.

We aim to tackle challenges that disabled people face during their everyday lives through the design and build of customised equipment/accessories, so they can be independent.

The people that we collaborate with are integrated into the design and manufacturing process, pioneering a participatory design approach, recognising that everyone's needs are bespoke under the umbrella of disability.

Ultimately, we want to spread the message that "good design is inclusive design", sadly in a time where accessibility is currently being  taught on the periperhery of engineering degrees whereas it should a critical factor in the design process and can benefit us all.
