Personal profile


Kirsten Rassmus-Gröhn is a researcher in rehabilitation engineering with a specific focus on non-visual interaction design, i.e. research concerning sound and haptics (touch), specifically in digital media. Her research is cross-disciplinary and concerns methods for involving users in design processes, prototyping techniques, universal design as well as new innovations and designs for improving participation in society and well-being for persons with disabilities. She has coordinated a national project on an innovation for making it possible for blind children to make digital drawings (HIPP), and has had the role of work package leader for user requirements in two EU projects (HaptiMap, NavMem). Currently, she is working with two projects concerning stroke survivors and well-being, where the objective is to create interactive objects to motivate physical exercise (STARR and AcivABLES).


I teach in and supervise several theses in the subjects of interaction design, universal design and rehabilitation engineering that have to do with usability, interaction, and e-accessibility.
