Abstract

This research highlights three essential phases in the process of developing outdoor clothing designs for people with disabilities so they can enjoy extreme sporting activities. The three phases include: extensive academic and grey literature searches, precedent searches, and visual analyses of photographs of people with disability engaging in outdoor sporting activities. Interestingly, the outcomes of the first two phases research reveal significant research and designs while the third phase reveals important relationships among the body-garment system-activity. This work is highly relevant towards engaging in innovative product development and highlights details related to the process as well details towards the design of outdoor clothing for sporting activities.
