  2. 2. <ul><li>Universal design is defined as ‘the design of products and environments to be usable by all people every where. To the greatest extent possible, without need for adaptation or specialized design’ </li></ul><ul><li>It accommodates the specific needs of the elderly, people with obesity, very tall or very short including children, pregnant women, and people with various functional limitations, which tend to have been traditionally ignored. UD is dependent on the culture of the people who will be using the specific built environment. This is, universal design may be different in each and every country because it is meant to be universally usable in that place </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>These seven principles of universal design provide guidance in the range of design disciplines including environments, products, and communications in order to better integrate features that meet the needs of as many users as possible. </li></ul><ul><li>What is important to note is that these principles address only universally usable design. Other considerations such as economic, engineering, cultural, gender and environmental concerns needs to be taken into account in their design processes. </li></ul>
