Exploring the Design Space of Assistive Augmentation
(Workshop on 12th March 2023 at the Augmented Humans Conference )


Assistive Augmentation has been proposed as 'user interfaces and interactions that seamlessly integrate with a user’s mind, body and behaviour, providing an enhanced perception' [1, 2]

We believe carefully designed Assistive Augmentation can empower people constrained by impairments to live more independently again and even extend one's perceptual and cognitive capabilities beyond the ordinary. However, a systematic exploration of the design space of Assistive Augmentation has not been done yet. 

As such, the aim of this workshop is to discuss two aspects of Assistive Augmentation forming a design space (see Figure 1).
