Creating simultaneously accessible and beautiful spaces for disabled people

Since its inception in 2012, Motionspot has grown into an industry leader in inclusive design, working with thousands of homeowners, businesses, occupational therapists, architects and interior designers. Examples of businesses they’ve supported include ​​Barclays, BP, Lloyds Banking Group and The National Trust.

The result is not only an accessible space for disabled people, but a beautifully-designed one too. The focus on aesthetics is what truly makes Motionspot unique in this market.

Motionspot’s designs are also inclusive with a range of physical, cognitive and sensory needs, as well as design considerations for faith, culture, ethnic background, gender, and neurodiversity.

Motionspot is the brainchild of Ed Warner and co-founder James Taylor, who sought to provide a better alternative to the ‘clinical-looking’ equipment that filled James’ home following a spinal cord injury. With the help of Innovate UK’s Inclusive Innovation Award, they now have dreams of making all social spaces entirely inclusive for disabled people, no matter their demographics or characteristics.

“Whilst this technology is initially aimed at the workplace, there is significant potential to also evaluate other spaces in hospitality, retail, retirement living and health care to help make spaces more accessible and inclusive in the UK, and eventually, across the world,” says Ed.
