TOKYO--()--Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today it will exhibit 17 universal-design products that offer maximized ease of use and accessibility for people of all ages and abilities, during the 6th International Conference for Universal Design at the Nagoya Congress Center in Nagoya, Japan from December 9 to December 11.

Mitsubishi Electric’s universal design initiatives are based on the concept of usability for each individual, aiming to make products accessible to the largest number of people possible.

About the International Conference for Universal Design

Universal design is the purposeful designing of products, buildings, and public/private environments to enable access and usage by the greatest possible number of people, irrespective of ethnicity, culture, customs, nationality, gender, age or ability. The International Universal Design Declaration, released at the First International Conference for Universal Design in Yokohama, Japan in 2002, referred to universal design as the creation of the social environments that respect and support the dignity of humans.
