IHCD opens our doors to all designers, engineers, and general smarty pants folks to come and work with some of our User/Experts who have a mix of hand impairments to begin to understand where this scissor idea just doesn’t quite cut it.

IHCD has found that people at the edges of the spectrum of ability are especially attuned to knowing when design fails, and also to what works. This is where true innovation happens!

Architect and Interior Designer Karen F Brown, AIA will present simple ways to modify your home so that you can age-in-place with comfort, dignity and grace. She will show you a recent project completed in Concord, MA for a couple in their 70s. While the house reflects sophistication and style, many age-in-place features are incorporated to include an elegant low-rise stair, a hidden pneumatic elevator, casement windows, and wider doorways with lever handles. The kitchen artfully combines lower countertops, a sit-down workspace and a discreet movable trolley.

Coming to IHCD straight from South by Southwest Making More of Ourselves is an activity-based provocation about our addiction to the visual and how it is other senses, like touch, smell and hearing, that are key to designing the future of multimodal user experiences for wearable technologies and more.

People will learn the complexities of our senses, how they interact and how they work to deliver emotion and information.
