Sex and Disability: Scoping Study
This project has been initiated by Canadian Disability Activist Andrew Gurza.
This project is a multi-disciplinary collaboration between the fields of Industrial Design, Product Design Engineering and Occupational Therapy.
Canadian Disability Activist and Sexuality Blogger Andrew Gurza approached DaSHI to look at developing a range of sex positive Sex Toys or Assistive Devices for People With Disabilities (PWD). The aim of this Scoping Study is to lay the ground work for the Design and Engineering team to develop a range of concepts the client may take forward into product development.
