Consumer Access, Priorities, and Benefits Over the Lifespan

Our mission is to offer a dialog between users, vendors, clinicians, researchers, educators and policy makers and elevate the importance and potential of universal design, and user access over the lifspan and within our society. By discussing the challenges associated with implementing universal design in the various aspects of rehabilitation and assistive technology we also function as a resource for other product and system related RESNA SIGs.
