It is recognised that within the field of assistive health technology, engaging people who ultimately have to use a product in that product’s design and development is an essential step in achieving a successful outcome.
Finding ways to elicit the experiences of individuals using products to gain understanding of the contexts of where technologies are used leads to the creation of products and services that are desirable. When these methods recognise the expertise of end users and place value on working in partnership with individuals end-users can be empowered through the process.
