Designing Assistive Technology
This e-book of the Journal of Assistive Technologies was to emphasis and underline the interdisciplinary nature of the journal, picking up on health, education, teaching, and the broad range of participants (age, disability, etc…). The response indicated particular interest in the role of user engagement in the design, testing and application of assistive technology for people with disabilities and health-related concerns. As such we have four articles and two project reports that draw out these themes. This collection provides a range of work from colleagues focused on a user-centred approach to proposing, designing, and evaluating a range of assistive technology tools for people with a range of disabilities. For the purpose of this e-book they have focused on autism, brain injury, physically issues, and age-related contexts but there are many lessons to be taken from the work presented that could be applied to assistive technology research more broadly. I would like to thank all the authors for their contributions and hope that, as a reader of their work, there are lessons, implications and ideas stimulated as a result.
