    New health technologies are not accessible to all users due to the circumstantial or permanent disabilities some users have. Especially in healthcare, attention must be paid to accommodating all potential users or patients. With the smart use of multimodal systems and multimedia solutions, a broader patient group can be reached. In this paper, we lay out the concept guidelines for accessible wearable technology. Wearables are used for many purposes, including health. The research on these guidelines is in progress, first recommendations based on preliminary outcomes are given.
