Empathy approaches may be used all throughout the design process, i.e. from research over to testing, and serve the purpose of empathising with users. Empathy approaches can consist of methods or tools. In the first case, we can use methods such as role playing or putting ourselves through a scenario that users experience (e.g. going to a physical therapy session). In the latter case, we may use tools to allow us to physically experience users’ abilities, such as gloves to simulate hand impairment or glasses to simulate visual impairment.
