From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

Accessibility refers to the extent to which products, services and other benefits can be used by all. Accessible design or universal design describes the development of products with the goal of making them usable by the broadest possible range of people.[1] Accessibility is often discussed in regard to improving usability for people with disabilities, but can also improve access for all users.[2][3]

Pippa Stacey has written about accessibility and ME/CFS as a student[4] and then as a young working professional.[5][6]
