Hackcessible is an annual Assistive Technology innovation competition that brings university technology students together with disabled people, to solve challenges in their daily lives through innovative technology.
Do you or someone you care for have a disability and have a specific challenge that isn’t met by existing technology? Could it improve the quality of life for you or someone else?
Hackcessible puts the end users at the heart of the process, inviting them to lead the project as co-designers and to participate in every aspect, from the workshops to the make-a-thon, to ensure products designed are useful and effective in solving everyday challenges.
This year’s ‘challenge event’ is on 29 October – if you have a challenge in mind and want to get involved, go to Ross Care’s website for more information.
Alternatively visit hackcessible.org and the team will try to match you with university students working in your area.
