and Inclusion Policy
Inclusion is at the heart of Neater Solutions. It strives to develop technologies that enable people with a wide range of conditions to participate and enjoy the benefits of the society they live in. Those people are directly involved in developing our products and services. Since his student days, Jon Michaelis has been actively involved in political organisations promoting equality and human rights. It has been carried through our inclusive attitude towards race, sex, sexuality, gender identity, neurodiversity, and physical and cognitive ability.
Our products help people to carry out daily tasks independently that able-bodied individuals take for granted, like eating a meal themselves at their own pace and how they like it. It allows them to sit and eat with their family and friends instead of being fed by those around them. It has the added benefit of additional social interaction with friends, family, or carers during mealtimes which can lead to positive psychological impacts on well-being and the feeling of inclusion.
Our products are developed with a user-focused approach. Through regular communication and trialing with existing and new users, we aim to incorporate new features or create new products wherever we see a viable requirement. Without input from current users, we could not have developed our equipment to the extent we have done. With the more diverse range of users we talk to, we find different needs and perspectives that form the basis and direction of the ongoing development of products and our company.
