Design Challenge: Manual wheelchair users are unable to reach objects or spaces that an able-bodied person can because of height limitations.
Project Timeline: 10 weeks
Team Size: 4 people
Approach and Goals: Conduct user research. Ideate solutions using lateral thinking strategies. Prototype solutions, obtain user feedback, and refine prototypes. Create final prototype, obtain further user feedback, and identify next steps.
My Specific Responsibilities: As the Human-Centered Design Lead on this project, I was responsible for recruiting and communicating with our users. I lead user research interviews, feedback sessions, and ensured that the user’s perspective was always at the forefront of the team’s goals.
