Certec's core

Certec undertake research and education on Rehabilitation Engineering and Design. We are part of the Department of Design Sciences, Faculty of Engineering, Lund University. The overall purpose of our work is for people with disabilities to achieve better opportunities in all aspects of life.

For this, we engage technology, design concepts and participatory methods and develop ways to work in close partnership with persons with disabilities. Technology and its design is an essential and integral part of people’s lives, as assistance as well as in fulfilling a person’s needs, wishes and dreams.

Our work emanates from the individual’s perspective and her situation in order to find sustainable factors for the design of the totality of technological and human assistance in everyday life. We work with both individual solutions and design for diversity in society.
