What is Universal Design and its benefits?

Universal design is the field of study concerned with the boundaries that physical structures and manufactured products impose on human function. The purpose of universal design is to promote buildings, products and environments that are fully accessible and functional to people with all levels of function. Therefore, any product or physical structure made based on universal design must:

  • Be equitable
  • Be simple
  • Be flexible
  • Be perceptible
  • Have tolerance to error
  • Have low physical effort
  • Have size and space for approach
