IKEA’s ThisAbles Project improves the accessibility of their designs with simple add-on solutions

IKEA is well known for its creative design solutions which are centred on providing an ease of use for the end user, be that product design or store layouts. Even the product assembly instructions are provided in picture format, which are accessible to users regardless of their levels of literacy or spoken language.
Going one step further in providing accessible products, Ikea Israel have developed the ThisAbles Project. This project was developed in association with two non-profit organisations who specialise in promoting accessibility and inclusion for persons with disabilities and the elderly in Israel; Milbat and Access Israel.
Some of the products developed through this project include:

The full list of products is available on IKEA’s ThisAbles Project website, and plans for many of the products are available for download for 3D printing.
