We passionately believe that there needs to be a massive step change in how technology helps people with disabilities such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
Technological development is progressing at a rapid pace, yet people with physical disabilities have benefited very little from this.
We are changing this by developing new devices that give people with physical disabilities greater independence. And we’re redesigning and updating old technology for people with disabilities too.
We’re now taking this important message and showcasing our technology to an international audience at South by Southwest (SXSW), a technology and entertainment conference and festival that’s taking place in Texas in March.
We’ve been invited as a part of The Future Art and Culture programme at SXSW produced by British Underground and Arts Council England with partnership support from the British Council. The project showcases the best of UK technology, creativity and innovation to an international audience of media and industry professionals.
We’ll be demonstrating Elevex, our exoskeleton prototype and discussing our work on developing technology that gives people with disabilities greater independence.
There’s still a lot that that needs to change for technological development to truly include people with disabilities. But change has begun, and we’re driving it forward.
Our panel, Tech For All: Unlocking Creativity with Inclusive Innovation, is taking place from 10-11am, on Tuesday 12 March in Room 18CD, at the Austin Convention Center.
Nick Kwek, journalist, BBC TV presenter and founder of Project x Media, is hosting the panel. He will speak to:
Emily, Eli and Hayley, have an important message to share and story to tell.
A mother’s determination to give her son, and everyone with physical disabilities, the chance to be able to live their lives with greater independence and to do the things they love.
Come to our panel. We’d love to meet you and tell you about our work.
As well as demonstrating our exoskeleton prototype at SXSW, Eli will be performing his music.
Come to his performance and hear him play live!
We are always looking for people to support our work in developing inclusive technology.
This could be funding our work, or partnering us on developing technology.
