Arkansas Universal Design Mobile Display


The Arkansas Universal Design Mobile Display is a Universally Designed display bathroom built inside of a trailer. The trailer can be reserved by home shows, county fairs, professional conferences, and other large venues that wish to educate the public through a hands on exploration of Universal Design. Its purpose is to inform the public, as well as professionals in the home health and building trades about the benefits and practical applications of UD. The Mobile Display is housed in Little Rock, but is available for events in all parts of Arkansas. Information about the costs and staffing associated with reserving the Mobile Display can be found at the link listed below.

Universal Design (UD) is an approach to design that increases the potential for developing a better quality of life for a wide range of individuals. It is a design process that enables and empowers a diverse population by improving human performance, health and wellness, and social participation (Steinfeld and Maisel, 2012). It creates products, systems, and environments to be as usable as possible by as many people as possible regardless of age, ability or situation.
