The Ideas Factory is an online community seeking to build credible evidence about how technology can enhance the lives of people with lifelong disability. This knowledge and information will come from sharing lived experience, practice-based evidence and research.
The types of technologies include assistive technologies and medical devices, software, processes as well as enabling environments that can assist people with their rehabilitation and to live well in the community. We are interested in off-the-shelf technology that is not yet fit for purpose, as well as the creation of bespoke technology to meet individual needs.
Join our collaborative forum, where diverse people come together in a supportive and accepting community to increase awareness, knowledge and opportunities to be involved in the design, development and production of technology to meet the needs of people with disability.
We want to hear from you! The Hopkins Centre researchers from The Dignity Project and HabITec are conducting a survey about access to technology for people with disability, including why people have or do not have access to smart technology. If you are a person with disability, we are keen to get your feedback on about access to technology in rehabilitation (project ref number 2021/867).
