A significant amount wearable computing research is directed towards the development of systems which may help people with disabilities. These systems are increasingly likely to be developed by end users, and at the same time be inherently disruptive. Whether (or not) a system which is developed under such a regime counts as a reasonable adjustment is an unexplored question, yet very significant if disabled people are to fully benefit from wearable assistive technologies. At the same time, there is also the theme of whether a wearable computing system could also be used to enforce accessibility, by offering a convenient measure of whether this concern is being appropriately met. This project is therefore aimed at bringing together the domains of wearable computing and disability discrimination law, to the mutual benefit of both fields.
