Double Award-winning Tap Dash

Double Award-winning Tap Dash

Tap Dash is a double award-winning inclusive sports game for the visually impaired and physically disabled. The concept has recently been professionally manufactured as part of the ASSET Inclusive Design Award.

Elliot Butler

After rigorous research and development, Elliot has designed a product suite to help individuals with Dementia. The main device manages their daily routines, visualising tasks in a simple, easy to understand way. As the user’s Dementia develops, routine tasks can be modified by loved ones as necessary.

Elliot is a creative and meticulous individual and he approaches all his design challenges with tenacity, energy and enthusiasm. His design interests lie not only within creative and aesthetic direction, but also within user-centred research, to design effective solutions for real world problems. In 2017, Elliot won the 'Andrew Simpson Sports Enabling Trust' inclusive design competition, and was awarded a bursary to prototype his design, 'Tap Dash'. Alongside his academic studies, Elliot has developed the design, and has had 'Tap Dash' manufactured professionally. 'Tap Dash' has since been shortlisted for the LeicestershireLive Innovation awards and Elliot is a finalist running for Young Innovator of the Year.
