Our research theme aims to break this barrier. We have an interdisciplinary research team that consists of psychologists, engineers, rehabilitation and special education specialists, products designers and artists, in order to accomplish our goal. The members conduct research on empowering personal competence using assistive technology, educating about diversity, and the provision of reasonable accommodation for those to whom this barrier exists.
Barrier-free research outcomes should be practical and realistic. Therefore, our approach is to utilize everyday mainstream technologies as a form of assistive technology, rather than developing new special technologies. Working with people who have disabilities and face social problems enriches the practicality, reality, and uniqueness of our research.
