Abstract: The aim of this study was to better understand student assumptions related to the challenges of developing a universally designed device compared to designing a dedicated assistive device. Two projects were conducted in a sophomore industrial design studio class. Data was collected from students via surveys. Results of the projects and suggestions for conducting similar projects are presented.
