    Details

    Individuals with upper extremity disabilities face unique challenges when it comes to using beauty products. These disabilities can include conditions such as limb loss, limited mobility, or dexterity impairments, which can significantly impact their ability to engage in self-care and beauty routines. The accessibility of beauty products is crucial to ensure that individuals with upper extremity disabilities have equal opportunities to participate in activities that promote self-expression and confidence. Research in the field of accessible design has highlighted the importance of inclusive product development across various industries, including cosmetics and personal care. However, limited attention has been given specifically to beauty products and their usability for individuals with upper extremity disabilities. To address this gap, studies are being conducted to assess the accessibility of beauty products and identify potential barriers and solutions. These studies typically examine factors such as packaging design, ergonomics of product applicators, ease of grip, and maneuverability. By understanding the specific challenges faced by individuals with upper extremity disabilities, researchers can propose modifications and design considerations that enhance accessibility.
