Universal Design

What is Universal Design?

Universal Design is the design of environments, products, and services that can be used by all people—taking into account the full spectrum of human diversity while minimizing the need for adaptations or specialized design. Universal Design is the ultimate in user-centered design because it makes things safer, easier, and more convenient for everyone.
