Virtual reality (VR) has promise to improve access to leisure activities, education, and work, but most VR systems are designed for non-disabled persons. Within AccessVR, we will address the physical, digital and experiential accessibility of VR for people with limited mobility, and will contribute a theoretical framework and research platform for accessible VR.
