The solution

Targeted experiences led by extensive research.

  • Human-centred design
  • AA Accessibility Compliant
  • Custom accessibility features

As per our human-centred design methodology, extensive user and stakeholder research laid the groundwork for new features and user experience innovations.

A solution ecosystem

Enable me

A world-first, international online community and information platform for stroke survivors. EnableMe features cutting-edge accessibility features that can be customised to meet stroke survivors' individual needs. This includes customising page layouts to accomodate vision, communication, or mobility requirements.

inform me

A companion site to EnableMe, InformMe is a custom-built online network and resource repository for healthcare professionals, hospital staff, and researchers. InformMe allows users to generate treatment plans for patients under their care, and collaborate by sharing resources with their colleagues at different hospital centres.

Corporate site

Developed in Umbraco, the NSF corporate site was designed to meet rigorous accessibility and UX standards. A key component of this solution was the development of campaign-specific donation forms and pages with vanity URLs, allowing donor data to be pushed back to Stroke Foundation’s central CRM platform.
