This article provides a summary of research into the integrating kitchen design: a kitchen designed for simultaneous use by people with mobility problems, including wheelchair bound persons as well as able-bodied people. By introducing mobile gesture controlled modules into kitchen furniture it is possible to dynamically adjust furniture for use in seating or standing positions. An important aspect of research problem is such location of elements which would optimize the simultaneous use of kitchen by two persons: able-bodied and disabled.
