Access to benefits

My question is really an observation, so here goes:
  On here I noted that the cost of Disability is an extra £583 compared to an abled bodied or non- restricted earner.  ( by this I mean that s/he needs no adaptions to work. )  My question is if we know this amount then why isn't the government using the same amount to pay those that need help?  And where does this figure come from?
  It just seems strange that everyone knows the "extra costs involved" except the people who assess and remove benefits (DWP)
