    Abstract

    Given the rise of long term conditions [6], and focus on living independently in the community, we launched a crowd sourcing community app called 'ifOnly' to encourage people with disabilities to share the problems they encounter in everyday life. People record, upload and share videos and audios that demonstrate everyday problems they face at home. The videos have been shared with designers who are asked to come up with innovative design solutions via a competition hosted by the University of Bath. The designs were considered by a panel of stakeholders; including representatives from the NHS, social care, creative industry and the third t sector and members of the public. The goal is to bring together emerging designers and users to make things better.
