Accessible Design Division
Arthritis Australia’s Accessible Design Division works toward educating and providing decision-making tools to industry and government at a design and procurement level, so that the needs and abilities of the broader community are understood. Accessible packaging is a focus area for the Division. The Division works with Dr Brad Fain who has more than two decades researching human factors engineering and design, as a Principal Research Scientist at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) and founder of the Intuitive Design Applied Research Institute. As a world-leading researcher in accessibility, his knowledge and testing methodology guide the Divisions work.
