Ideas Factory

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.
