Abstract [en]

Swedish Rheumatism Association has for many years fought for accessibility of products and services for their members. One tool in that struggle is a method to certify products and packaging as “easy to use”. This paper describes the development of the latest version of that test. It relies on people experiences and puts value on user satisfaction. The result is a powerful tool in inclusive design. Performing calibrated product testing by test groups of persons with reduced functions in their hands is now used as a product development and, if approved as a marketing tool.
