Designing Inclusive Interactions responds to the recent changes in the research landscapes in the fields of Human Computer Interaction, Computer Science, and Healthcare as a result of new technology and innovation. Research into accessibility for interface design has always represented an unconventional, multi-disciplinary arena of pragmatic disciplines, such as experimental psychology, engineering design, and rehabilitation practice. It has moved from isolated activities in disparate fields to the more interdisciplinary perspective evident today in areas such as healthcare and inclusive design. As a result of this, there is now a need for the transfer of knowledge and techniques from inclusive design research into the wider community. This book is divided into five areas: Understanding Users for Inclusive Design Measuring Inclusion Inclusive Interaction Assistive Technology Inclusion and Healthcare The papers were selected by reference to the peer assessments of an international panel of reviewers from many key disciplines such as computer science, assistive technology, engineering and product design. This book represents a sample of leading national and international research in the fields of inclusive design, universal access, and assistive and rehabilitative technology. We hope that this will encourage inter-disciplinary research leading to better designs, effectively reducing exclusion and difficulty, in the workplace, at home and at leisure.
