Innover pour et par le handicap. Méthodologie de conception de produits adaptée aux marchés de niche: application au marché du handicap moteur.

Abstract : The law of 11 February 2005 enables a change about the way we perceive disability. Alike for models and definitions development, the associations of People With Disabilities (PWD) keep fighting for accessibility for all of them. It's within this context that our researches claim the benefits of innovating design integrating the needs of these users that indutrials consider as a niche market. As PWD are approximately 50 millions European people worth, can this market be still considered as a niche one? The analysis of the assistive technologies market points up a full scope for an innovation process focused on PWD needs in order to overcome existing lacks. To define the characteristics and the needs of these target users requires to understand and characterize what creates a disability situation. Some PWD specific needs are already at the root of inventions and technological advances used by a majority of people today (e.g. remote control, mixer taps, voice recognition, etc.). We'll try to demonstrate through experiments leaded in partnership with the French Neuromuscular Diseases Association that knowledge of target users needs can be considered as a potential source of innovation for everybody.
